Happy Birthday to Poker(ati)

by , Apr 20, 2008 | 12:20 pm

Four years ago today — on the glorious holiday that is 4-20 — Pokerati went live. Our first post was about a new online poker site that also just went live called Full Tilt. Prediction at the time: “I suspect this site will fare well.”

Boo-yah! Right on target … that’s how prescient Pokerati can be! Granted, we also said the online poker room market was also probably saturated in April 2004 … hey, you can’t hit a home run every time, right?

We’ve gone through lots of changes over the years, and more TK for sure. Personally, I can’t believe I’ve stuck to anything for four years … but it’s amazing what the burning desire to not work ever will do for you. Anyhow, thanks for reading us once or twice during that time. Kiss off, I don’t need you! We couldn’t have done it without you. So thanks again, happy blog-birthday to me. Maybe next year Full Tilt and Pokerati should have their party together.

    Happy BBday, Dan. Aunt Sue says she’s proud of you. We are looking forward to seeing you when we are in Vegas. We’ll be there at the end of May, right after the Memorial Day Vegas Zoo closes.

    Thanks guys. One thing I find amusing looking into the deep archives is my blogroll:
