Golden Age

There is no doubt that this is the Golden Age of poker, and there's no end in sight.

The Party Poker network is approaching 100,000 users at peak hours. The fish are biting. There are dozens of TV poker broadcasts a week (so I hear -- they don't quite come in on Chilean cable). Home games seem prevalent and Vegas is booming.

Most importantly, the games are easy. I truly believe that anyone who puts in the effort to learn the game can make some good money.

I don't know when this boom started. It was before Chris Moneymaker, before the World Poker Tour. It may have begun more three or four years ago with the advent of hole cams on the British "Late Night Poker."

But there's no end in sight. The good times are here to stay, at least for the foreseeable future.

I can only hope that they will continue for years to come.

As long as the number of online players stays steady or increases, the percentage of those players who are fish will stay relatively the same.
