About Subject: Poker

May 20, 2011 - 12:57 AM EDT

Subject: Poker has a very simple goal, embodied by our slogan: “Poker news done right.” We work hard to provide you, our reader, with the best possible poker news site. We strive to provide you with objective, in-depth content written from a completely independent point of view. This means that you will not be seeing any advertisements for poker sites on Subject: Poker, nor do the owners have any equity in other poker businesses. To read more about our founding principles, please see our first post announcing the launch of S:P.


At Subject: Poker we are extremely proud of our team of volunteer writers. Our writers are all independent, bright minds who have been respected in the poker community for years for their ability to find facts and provide insight. They provide you with great content for free.

Besides this static team, we also have non-staff writers who will contribute as well. We plan on adding to the staff as we find more viable candidates. If you think you have what it takes, or if you know somebody who can write objective, thoughtful content, please contact us at team@subjectpoker.com.

Where Are the Ads?

Our goal at Subject: Poker is to provide the community with important information and solid, unbiased analysis, not to make money. It’s extremely important to us that our readers know that we have no conflict of interests. So, we will never take money from casinos, online poker sites, or any other business that we expect to write about.

Of course, since these are exactly the types of businesses that are interested in advertising on sites such as this, we currently don’t have ads, and we’re entirely supported by donations from our readership.

How You Can Help

First of all, if you have any information that you think might be useful to us, please send it to team@subjectpoker.com. We’ve been able to provide our readers with such great content largely because our readers have been kind enough to help out.

Second, if you can afford it, please donate to us by clicking the donate button at the top right of the page. As much as Subject: Poker is a labor of love, it costs a little money and a lot of time to provide our readers with informative, unbiased, and reliable news. As much as we’d like to, we cannot run this site in its present form indefinitely without income. Any amount that you can spare will go a long way towards keeping Subject: Poker the great, independent news source that it is today.

Our logo was designed by Drew Scherer for our logo contest. He’s a graduate student studying architecture, which doesn’t surprise us, given his obvious design abilities. Before Black Friday, Drew was a NL200 six-max grinder as well. If you’d like to get in contact with Drew, you can e-mail us at team@subjectpoker.com and we’ll put you in touch with him.
