Select Page Expands its Coverage and Reviews of the Online Poker Rooms with the Development of the “U.S. Friendly” Poker Rooms Section, one of the fastest growing online poker communities and internet leader of online poker room reviews, launches a new poker room rating and ranking section exclusively for “US Friendly” poker rooms.

(PRWEB) October 20, 2006 — (FTR), one of the premiere online poker communities and Texas Holdem strategy destinations, continues to deliver pertinent information to the online poker player with its launch of the “U.S. Friendly” Poker Rooms section.

In light of the United States Congress passing the Port Act on September 30th, 2006, followed by President Bush signing the Port Act on Friday the 13th, October 2006, many major online poker rooms have closed their doors to US poker players. However, thousands of US poker players continue to play online at many of the other well-established online poker rooms that continue to accept U.S. players.

FTR’s U.S. Friendly Poker Rooms section ( not only lists those online poker rooms willing to accept U.S. players, but also ranks those rooms in order of their positive ratings.

Each US Friendly Poker Room can be reviewed and rated by any FTR member/visitor in five different categories: Interface, Action, Support, Fish, and Bonus. The user/member reviews are visible to the public to read, and their ratings of the individual categories are averaged to provide an overall rating for that online poker room. That rating then ranks all of the US Friendly Poker Rooms. The process used by FTR’s rating and ranking system ensures an unbiased perspective, with the online poker community determining the strongest and weakest internet poker rooms.

Because of the volatility in the online poker industry, specifically regarding the United States, FTR is keeping its audience informed and aware of the current environment. In addition to the launch of its US Friendly Poker Rooms, FTR has also organized forum threads regarding official statements & correspondences from various online poker rooms citing their position regarding U.S. players and real money poker games.

In addition to online poker room reviews and an active poker forum, features numerous Texas Holdem strategy articles, exclusive bonuses to FTR visitors, an online poker league, free poker tools, and much more.
