Letter From the Professor - August 6, 2008

Share your Knowledge with CAP Member Reviews
A while ago, we launched a feature that allows the CAP community to submit reviews for all the CAP certified programs featured on our website.


We felt it was a great way for all the CAP readers not only to get acquainted with all our certified programs, but also to provide input on what they do or don't like about them.


Visit this link to see a list of all CAP Certified Programs. For each program, you'll find the Professor's official review, as well as current webmaster promotions and links to CAP Forum threads that discuss the program. Each one also a space for Member Reviews. And we need your input to help build this section out.


I hope to generate some new thoughts as to what programs the CAP community likes, and why. This is the kind of group discussion that can elevate all our games and enable us to provide better services to one and all.


We want to build up a library of reviews for these programs to make sure we're covering every bit of information we can find. And we need your help to do that! So check out our CAP Certified Programs page today and let us know what you think.


(Remember, the reviews are moderated, meaning that they have to be approved by CAP before being posted to the website.)

Manager's Corner


Jorge, DoylesRoom

Jorge was 12 years old the first time he walked into a casino. His family owned several land-based casinos which gave him the opportunity to fully understand the operational end of the business. He started playing black jack and poker at age 15, which also helped him understand the players’ needs and helped him successfully implement some of those needs into this industry. Jorge's business acumen stems from online casinos that he managed in 1999. His work in the online poker industry began in 2004 on a small operation which was absorbed by The Doyle Brunson Poker Network that same year. He has always been concerned with players/affiliates in the industry and giving them his best efforts, so it was natural that he accepted the position of Affiliate Manager for the Doyle Brunson Poker Network after only a few short months with the company. Since taking over the management of the Affiliate program for DoylesRoom, the department has grown over 500 percent, and Jorge attributes this success to his ability to recognize and meet the needs of this constantly changing industry. Jorge and his wife Nana live in Costa Rica and are currently waiting the arrival of their first child together.

Congratulations, Jorge!
