Planet Poker’s Cardroom Manager is Roy Cooke, who has been a Professional Poker Player for several years in addition to being the Senior Columnist for “Card Player” magazine. Knowing this means that you know that you are in great hands when you choose to play at Planet Poker. This incredible cardroom has been online since the introduction of online poker, yes, that’s right, Planet Poker has been up and running since January 1998; right at the threshold of this new era of poker playing. When it came time to figure out how to get people to come in and try these new “online” poker rooms, Planet Poker was the top innovator. The first thing that they did was run some very ingenious advertisements in magazines such as “Card Player” that listed the advantages to playing online poker. The ads said things like, “Play in your pajamas, play at 2 a.m., play even if you can't make the regular game”. The idea was incredible, and more importantly, it worked. Players started to come to Planet Poker, and though most were skeptical at first, they quickly saw that it worked and it was fun!
The next step that Planet Poker took was getting in contact with Professional Poker Player, Roy Cooke. They invited him to come and personally check out Planet Poker and to give his honest opinion of the site and the system used to provide online poker. Mr. Cooke liked what he saw, so much so that he accepted Planet Poker’s offer to become their Cardroom Manager. This added an infinite amount of trust to the site, because Mr. Cooke’s colleagues knew that he wouldn’t endorse, let alone work for, a company that he did not believe in.
