Players feedback shows that many players look very excited on the progress of the site however some of them feel a bit disappointed due to the fact that the site is progressing so slowly.

    The launch of Ivey's site happened a couple of weeks ago but so far only an interview with Greg Merson and a short article on signing of Dempsey. However, the good news is that there are already six poker professional players, including Phil Ivey and Patrik Antonius that are going to provide you with free poker training videos.
