Welcome to MacPoker101

The poker wave that's sweeping America and the rest of the world is reaching the Mac community. Every day more and more Mac users find that they, too, can join the exciting world of online poker. Most Mac users, however, still think online poker is off-limits for them. It is true that among the top 20 poker rooms, only BugsysClub currently offers a downloadable Mac version, but two of the top 5 sites, Pacific Poker and PokerRoom have top-notch no-download Java applets that enable us Mac users to enjoy the online poker experience to the fullest

MacPoker101 is here to carry this message and serve as a gateway for those Mac users who take their first steps in Online Poker. MacPoker101 will also be a home for experienced online poker players among Mac lovers. They will find here up-to- date information, useful tips, and valuable articles. But we dont intend to just sit back and talk bad beats and high hands. Our goal is to gradually build a large enough community of Mac and poker fans to act as a pressure group on the leading poker rooms, and make them change their unreasonable "No Mac, please" policy.

Mac users are not a meaningless, tiny fraction of the online community as most poker rooms seem to think we are.

The Software Publishers Association (SPA) estimates that 16% of computer users are on Macs. According to a 2002, Nielsen/ NetRatings survey, Mac users make up for more than 8% of the online population. The 2005 numbers are likely to be higher. 

According to the survey, Mac users are more educated, live in higher income households and are more Web savvy than their PC-compatible counterparts.

MacPoker101 is here to make the leading poker rooms understand that joining
Pacific Poker, PokerRoom and BugsysClub and opening their gates to Mac users is simply the right and smart thing to do. 

We dare to hope that with your help, MacPoker101, the first ever poker site for Mac users, will be that player who comes from nowhere, sit at the table and change the course of the game.
