Our News Team

While our community focuses on helping players get to grips with the game, and contributing to our site with articles, we also have a dedicated team of poker news journalists who ferret out the stories that hit every day.

Sean Gibson
Sean Gibson

Not only is Sean an experienced poker industry insider and writer, having worked for many different media outlets over the years, he’s a dab hand at the felt too. When not covering major events such as the World Series of Poker and World Poker Tour, Sean can generally be found crushing 6-max or full-ring games at the Oceanside, CA, or at Caesars Palace in Vegas.

Jennifer Newell
Jennifer Newell

A talented writer with eight years’ experience in the poker industry, Jennifer comes from decent stock – she honed her knowledge of the game working for the World Poker Tour in LA. After ditching the day job, Jennifer pursued her passion for writing by setting up camp in Las Vega. If one of the crime novels she is writing ever sees the light of day, we could well lose one of the brightest poker scribes in the business.

Tom Somach
Tom Somach

Find a good website which covers the gambling industry and you will usually find Tom Somach’s name on it somewhere. An American journalist with over 20 years’ experience, Tom has written for numerous sites on just about everything gambling-related, from poker to Bingo, sports betting to slots, and Baccarat to Punto Banco. As well as his online commitments, over the years his work has graced the pages of the New York Times, San Francisco Examiner and Las Vegas Sporting News. When Tom’s not writing he can be heard gracing the airwaves as a radio host and producer.
