Hi, my name is Greg and I'm 28.
I'm trying to create the best poker strategy website I can. The poker game I am best at is No Limit Texas Hold'em, so my strategy focuses on that.
I didn't like the way I had to learn the game when I first started playing online poker in 2006, so I started this poker strategy website in 2007. ThePokerBank.com sounded good at the time, and I thought I'd figure the rest out as I went along.
This is what I've got so far.
I want to try and explain poker strategy better than anyone else, so that other people don't have to go through the same problems I did when trying to win money from poker. Poker is complex, but that doesn't mean it has to be complicated. Learning is easy if you can find the right material.
This isn't an all-singing and all-dancing poker website, I haven't got the time for that. It's Texas Hold'em strategy with a few things on the side. If anything's singing and dancing it's me.

What is ThePokerBank all about?
The general idea of ThePokerBank is to teach you how to play winning no limit Texas Hold'em and help you find a better room to play at. Basically, I want to help you win more money from playing Texas Hold'em online.
To summarize the goals of ThePokerBank as sweetly as possible:
- Teach quality Texas Hold'em strategy through articles and videos. The better you play the more you win.
- Give honest reviews of Texas Hold'em rooms. I'm not going lie and tell you that every room is perfect.
Tip: If you ever get lost, cut your losses and head to the Texas Hold'em FAQ.
Playing Texas Hold em poker online.
There are loads of great rooms for Texas Holdem, really loads. I've given honest reviews of these rooms in the Texas Hold'em rooms section.
I urge you to check out a variety of the top Texas Hold'em rooms on this site and go for the one you like the most. Make your own decisions (it's a running theme in poker) and be happy with the room you decide to play at.
Different players have different tastes and expectations, so play at the room that you like best and don't worry about what others may be pimping as the "bestest room ever".
Feeling comfortable while you play is more important than any other metric.
My top 5.
Different rooms appeal to different types of players. You should check out the reviews and go for the one you think suits you best. Everyone has their favourite chair, everyone has their favourite poker room.
Having said that, I do have incredibly good taste, so here are my favourite 5 rooms for playing Texas Hold'em poker online.
Useful Texas Hold em stuff.
Along with the strategy and room information on this site, there are a few other things you may find useful.
- SplitSuit explains poker strategy in video like nobody else I know.
- The bankroll calculator helps you to figure out what stakes to play at.
- I've got a poker software section. Good software will help you win more money.
- Here are some opinions on poker books.
- You're going to come across premium poker training sites eventually. My strategy is epic, but training websites have more strategy than I can offer.
A bit more about guy behind ThePokerBank.
My name is Greg (see right), I'm from the UK and I started ThePokerBank in 2007. You can find out more gripping stuff about me on the about me page.
Why should you trust my strategy and advice?
I'm not a full time professional or live tournament player, so don't expect to see me on TV shows or in any poker history books. Not yet anyway.
Despite that major set back, I am a comfortable winning online Texas Hold'em cash game player up to $200NL, which is good enough for me. I've also played at more online poker rooms than most people would consider healthy.
All the information on this site is free. Feel free to comment around. Consistency isn't really my thing so don't be offended by untimely replies, but if I stumble back in to a responsive state I'll give you the best reply I can. I just want to say the fact that you are adding to the strategy pages is appreciated.
