3 Different Types of Poker Content Fans Love to Consume

Learn about the top three ways poker fans consume their favorite game, from classic books to modern vlogs and podcasts.

The way in which content about real money online poker in the USA is consumed continues to change as it expands exponentially with almost immediate accessibility. This article will explore the top three ways poker content fans get and consume their poker strategy, news, humor, and updates on the latest tournaments.

Poker Books

The first and most classic way of consuming poker content is via poker books, from Doyle Brunson’s Super System to Jonathan Little’s Mastering Small Stakes No-Limit Hold’em to The Theory of Poker by David Sklansky. Many fledgling poker players have spent hundreds of hours studying poker strategy books to improve their game.

Poker memoirs are also a classic way to get behind the poker curtain and see the lives and determination, setbacks, and triumphs that paved the way to poker success for a rare few. Michael Craig’s The Professor, the Banker, and the Suicide King focuses on odds and the edge needed to gain an advantage over a group or consortium of some of the most talented poker players at that moment in time and some to this day. Life’s a Gamble by Mike Sexton, a revered and celebrated poker professional, Poker Brat by Phil Hellmuth, and Eli Elezra’s Pulling the Trigger are all memoirs that give a look into what it truly takes to become and stay a professional poker player.

Poker Articles

Poker articles are another way to consume poker content, and the ability to read and absorb online content makes what was once less accessible and available to almost everyone. You can visit sites like Cardplayer Lifestyle, the WSOP, PokerStars, PokerNews, and of course, right here on F5Poker.com to gain information on hundreds of topics. Poker is happening globally, and readers and fans want to know about the latest event recap, the legalization of poker in different areas, and the personal stories that give poker a more emotional and in-depth appeal.

Social Media Platforms

The third way people consume their poker content is with vlogs, podcasts, or an all-encompassing social media umbrella. For instance, the Only Friends Podcast has 50.6K subscribers currently and is hosted by Matt Berkey and an assortment of his friends. With 154K subscribers on YouTube, Joey Ingram has become a massively popular poker content creator and vlogger, tackling issues and deep dives such as the Mike Postle scandal and the J4 Hustler Casino Live poker controversy with Robbi Jade Lew and Garrett Adelstein. “

According to The Hendon Mob, Doug Polk is another popular vlogger and poker player with approximately $10 million in total live career tournament earnings. He currently has an astounding 375K subscribers on his YouTube channel.

A newer content creator on the poker scene, Caitlin Comeskey, has recently commanded a lot of attention with her comedic take on poker issues, finding humor in serious situations, such as the aforementioned Hustler Casino Live controversy. She usually does so via Twitter or Instagram, furthering the scope of what a vlogger or content creator can do and the direction that poker content can continue to go.

Twitter and Instagram are also places to find poker content, albeit in shorter form, either written or video. The poker community has a passionate following and discourse on Twitter, and a reader can quickly come up to speed with what’s new in poker. Popular accounts to follow are those of:

  • Veronica Brill @angry_polak

  • Daniel Negreanu @RealKidPoker
  • Phil Galfond @PhilGalfond.

The Hendon Mob and WSOP.com are two great poker resources for content as supplemental features to help flesh out the financial earnings of the poker player being featured in an article or television production.

Conclusion

Poker content continues to develop and expand as far as new technology allows. These top three different types of poker content fans love to consume take you from classic strategy tools such as books to articles to newer channels such as vlogs and podcasts that entertain as well as inform, to humor content to keep us laughing and connected, to Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube. Plenty of options are out there to keep you up-to-date and connected to the poker world.

Christina Bradfield is an author currently living in Las Vegas. Her love for poker began at a young age when her mother introduced her to Texas Hold’em in a home game where she learned not to put her cash winnings in her pockets.
