Everyone likes a good laugh and on April Fools’ Day everyone’s a comedian. Case in point, the poker media. Not to be left out of the day when the internet takes their jokes to the next level, a few of the “hipster bloggers” out there decided to audition for a job in the SNL writers room on their websites. Here’s a rundown on what we could find (so far).
Global Poker Index –
The GPI went all in on April Fools’ Day. Not only did they create a whole webpage devoted to the idea of a poker dating app, they littered their homepage with fake news stories…some of which aren’t even really that funny, just fake. But kudos to them on cornering the poker AFD market though as no one in the industry has devoted as much time to hilarity as the GPI.
All In Magazine –
While not doing their namesake in comedy, All In did dip their toe into the water with their Chris Moneymaker changes his famous name article. Hoping to cash in on the bitcoin crazy, the man responsible for the Moneymaker effect becomes the new face of the online currency.
Wouldn’t it be hilarious if anti-online poker dinosaur Sheldon Adelson reversed course and launched a brand new site? If you think that WOULD be hilarious…then check out this article about AdelVicePoker.com, Sheldon’s latest “secret deal” with Full Tilt Poker finds him ready to jump ship on his opposition to online and crush some SnG’s. Plus Sheldon ages 12 years over the course of this one article.
If we catch any more LOLs, we’ll update this post later in the day. If you find a good (or bad) one, let us know!
