More than your average poker celeb, Johnny Chan is nothing short of a poker legend. With 10 World Series of Poker bracelets to his credit, when Johnny Chan offers to teach what he knows about playing (and winning at) poker, that's not an offer to be taken lightly. And that's exactly the offer he makes at his own online poker room, Chan Poker - teach anyone willing to learn how turn from poker fish to poker shark.
The Poker School at Chan Poker is a multimedia education replete with 3 in-depth departments: Basics, Strategy, and Essentials. Learn about nut hands, kickers, position, starting hands, playing pre-flop, different playing styles, reading your opponent, managing your bankroll, and avoid the mistakes most novices make. And that's just a sampling of what you can learn.
Get through this Poker School and you're well on your way to sweeping any poker table you sit in at - be it online or off. What Chan Poker lacks in bonuses, promotions, extras, and freebies, it makes up for in a rock-solid poker education.
That's not to say that Chan Poker is void of bonuses, promotions, extras, and freebies altogether. Quite the contrary, actually. In fact, Johnny stocks Chan Poker with a very nice smattering of bonuses and promotions, including a 100% first time deposit bonus (up to a whopping - and unheard-of - $1,000), and $50 daily freeroll with absolutely no entry requirements other than showing up, and a 50% reload bonus (up to $250) every single time you make a new deposit, bar-none.
Tournament play is big at Chan Poker (as well it should be considering its sponsor), with freezeouts, sit 'n gos, qualifiers, even shorthanded tournaments. But Chan Poker has plenty of cash ring games too, going on all the time, so you're free to play online poker your way.
Chan Poker makes it easy for everyone to get in the game, even if running on different platforms, with a no download, browser-based, software option (for Mac users, for example). Play Texas Hold'em, Omaha, 7-Card Stud, and 5-Card Stud - no matter what your computer, and play against others on completely "incompatible" platforms too. Both software applications (download and no-download) feature real-time odds, player notes, statistics, and other elements that make it easier to play and play well.
And like any good poker leader should, Johnny rewards loyalty, with a multi-tiered Loyalty Program with prizes and rewards of increasing value as players continue to bring their game to Chan Poker.
Ongoing player support is available via email form.
Johnny Chan's overriding goal is to, one day, own his own land-based casino and card room. And if Chan Poker is any indication, achieving that dream would be a boon not just for Chan, the man himself, but for all of us fellow lovers of the game too.
If there's anyone who can help you improve your game, Chan can!
