About us

Our story began in 2012 with a group in one of the social networks. And it was not at all as simple as the inscription in Hollywood films “10 years later” 😂 We had to go through a very difficult path to become a recognizable and authoritative poker portal.

Today Cardmates is not just a poker community, but also a large information site about poker. We have a lot of educational materials, author's columns, expert reviews, where we share our experience gained over the years in a simple and accessible way.

Guides and videos will help beginners learn the basics and confidently develop their skills. We also recommend that you look into the sections of books and films about poker. You can also find the success stories of famous poker professionals in the Biographies section.

The recent news of the poker world and the latest updates of the poker rooms (launch of satellites, new promotions and bonuses) are published daily in the feed.

The highlight of Cardmates is the GambleTalk section, the main stars of which are our subscribers. GambleTalk is a free platform for players to communicate comfortably with the opportunity to share experiences, express their opinions and make interesting acquaintances with like-minded people.

The Cardmates website is available in 4 languages: English, Russian, Ukrainian (since 2019) and Portuguese (since 2020).

No matter how trite it may sound, we have a really young and friendly team 😇 What unites us? Professionalism, ambition and love for poker.

Every day, we work together to create objective and relevant content so that each reader can develop and usefully spend time on Cardmates.
