 Letter From the Professor - February 7, 2008

After all the excitement of CAP Euro London, ASOP and the CAP Awards it's nice to get a little rest and then get back on track with all the thousand other projects we have pending here at CAP this year.

Here's a peek at what 2008 will bring:

CAP Events
Currently the events team is finalizing a location (think Mediterranean beach) and dates (think mid May) for CAP Spring Break. Planning and registration will begin for this annual tradition shortly. It's everyone’s favorite event of the year so plan on being there. I know I will.

PAP will be putting on our first Online Poker Conference and it promises to be a huge event in its own right. Stay tuned for news on the location and dates.

CAP 2.0
Around the community we have a great deal of additions and enhancements planned including:

- Additional language support for European and Asian markets
- Scheduled chats and online conferences
- Even more articles and tutorials for newbies and not so newbies in our learning center.
- Video and live streaming integration throughout the site.
- Computer based live training modules to help accelerate learning for all affiliates. The more you learn the more you learn!
- Expand the Affiliate Series of Poker (ASOP) and increase your chances to win even bigger prizes at our events.

We have our work cut out for us but the added benefits to our members are well worth the effort.

Topic of Discussion

Ron Paul, potential savior for online gaming or wasted vote?
Yes, primary fever has stuck us at CAP too and after following the votes on the news networks I began to question the validity of the Ron Paul campaign. Many affiliates have indicated they plan on voting for Ron Paul. Does this send a message to the world or is the Ron Paul candidacy a republican trick to siphon off votes from the Democrats and Independents? What’s your opinion on the candidates?

 Manager's Corner

Brandon BerndtBrandon Berndt, Chan Poker

I started in the industry around three years ago as an affiliate and have been an Affiliate Program Director for a little over a year now. I have really enjoyed my time in the industry, and couldn’t be happier.

I am really excited to release my affiliate program. We have put a lot of hard work into it, and I think affiliates will be very pleased. It was very important to me to utilize my experience as an affiliate when creating the program as it is built around what affiliates need. Easy to use backend, all the tools you need, fast payments, and most importantly support. I am always available for you guys!
