word type: noun

  1. A website that tracks the results of online poker tournaments.

Where it All Began

In spring 2005, Nat Arem and his business partner Paul Shamilov began developing software to track poker tournaments. At the time, the only tournaments that were track-able were on PokerStars.

Within a few years, the "db," as it is affectionately known, was tracking tournaments on all major online poker sites including Full Tilt Poker, Ultimate Bet and Bodog.

In March 2007, thepokerdb was incorporated into the Bluff Magazine empire, where it still exists today, as both a free service for basic poker tournament statistics and a subscription-based offering for people wanting more detailed reports on tournament results.
