Il Fatto Quotidiano

On Tangram in 2011 Dario De Toffoli begun his “Viaggio intorno al Poker” (trip around the poker). He wrote about this game to present it to the people that were fearing it: “Let’s begin a new trip. The most played game in the world. A game that has a doubtful past, surrounded by whiskey and smoke. A game that changed a lot in the last years. Somebody will say that it was about time, somebody else will not agree. Whatever your opinion might be, I think this game deserves attention as it has become not only a ludic but also a cultural and social event.

The collaboration with Gioco Digitale has been a great opportunity! Since the very beginning, when it was a very creative start up and was the first company to offer online poker playing in Italy; after it became a real business and the fun begun to disappear. Fausto Gimond’s insights, meeting with Max Pescatori and the book that we realized together, and the tournaments.
“It is the story of a new industry that gives work to thousands of people and not only to the people that work for the poker rooms: TV programms, reviews, specialized websites and a huge amount of blogs and communities. And also a quite remarkable literature compared to other games or sports”.
founder of Gioco Digitale
Gioco Digitale also launched Poker Digitale (www.pokerdigitale.it), a very up-to-date website with many tools: there is a magazine with the last news in the world of poker; an internet TV with programs about poker; a blog in wich the user can partecipate; a very crowded Poker School (based on our texts) that answers to all the questions and shows the rules and the first main techniques.
