Hello, my name’s Kevin Tao, and I’d like to announce a new website I created, Bluff Avenue, now in public beta! Bluff Avenue is a site where you can play poker for free, no downloads required.

There are plenty of online poker sites to choose from, you might be thinking.  What’s different about Bluff Avenue? 

It’s Social Online Poker

On most online poker sites you play against random strangers. There’s not much of a social element–you show up, you play, you win or lose. Maybe you get berated for drawing to that inside straight. 🙂

On Bluff Avenue, the whole focus is on the social side of the game: playing online poker with your friends. You create a group for your friends, you create private online poker games for them to play in (cash games, tournaments, and sit & go’s), you choose the stakes and the rules in effect.

Use Bluff Avenue’s brand new TableTalk VOIP feature to voice chat with your friends as you play!  No more typing into cramped chat windows.  All you need is a microphone–no special software or set-up is required!

Poker Your Way

Play Texas Hold’em and Omaha with optional rules that you might use in your home game but don’t usually find on online sites:

  • Live straddles
  • Checking in the dark
  • Calling the clock
  • Rabbit hunting
  • Showing a hole card while in a hand
  • Even play the Seven-Deuce game!

It’s like playing your home poker game online! Combine the speed and convenience of online play with the friendly company, atmosphere, and flexible rules of a home game. It’s perfect for online poker leagues or for playing poker with friends who aren’t close enough geographically to play with you live.

It’s Free!

There’s no rake, and no deposits, so it’s completely legal in the U.S. Bluff Avenue uses virtual money to track your winnings and bankroll balance. How you choose to use the scoreboard is up to you.

Bluff Avenue is brand spanking new! Come and kick the tires, and let us know what you think. User feedback is very important to us and will help shape the future of the site. Are people even interested in playing a social game of poker online? We have no idea, but we’re going to try our best to find out.

    Bluff Ave is a great website, me and my friends have been playing on it daily for about a month now. However, adobe flash is currently unavailable. Will there be an update to the website anytime soon?

    Can I just buy your software with an 8 user license so I can run a game for my friends. Your site keeps timing out.
