Finding local poker games, poker leagues, groups and players just became easier with a new Google Maps mashup service from PokerDIY
Sydney (PRWEB) December 2, 2008 -- The poker social-networking site, PokerDIY, celebrated its 3rd birthday by launching a free service to find local poker games, leagues and players simply by zooming in on a Google Map.
Find local poker games on the map
PokerDIY's founder, Rodney Joyce, explains the thinking behind the new functionality.
"Too often you see unanswered poker ads on the large social networks for local poker games and leagues. While these sites have the userbase behind them, they do not cater exclusively for poker players and lack useful resources for your average home poker player. For example, you could organize your next home poker game with Meetup, advertise it on Facebook and record your scores in an excel spreadsheet, but this is a lot of work and no fun for the poker league host. PokerDIY's aim is to simplify poker league management and to make the entire process of finding and managing a poker game easier. The new Google Map of local poker games, leagues, groups and players goes one step further to help you find games in your area or to ensure that you have enough players at your next game."
The addition of this service to the existing array of free poker-league management tools will no doubt please players looking for the next tourney. Thousands of poker players around the globe currently use PokerDIY to schedule live poker games and manage their league scoreboard, whether it is embedded on their own website or on PokerDIY.
Established in November, 2005 with over 35000 poker players in over 120 different countries, PokerDIY connects poker players and offers a free service to allow easy poker league management and to find local poker games.
