The "lead" pro for the site? None other than Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond, one of the most successful poker players in the world over the past couple of years.

According to the site, Galfond "hand selected" the pros who will be making videos for Bluefirepoker.

They include Niman "Samoleus" Kenkre, Jason "PBJaxx" Senti, Martin Fournier "Giggy" Giguere, Ryan "Fees" Fees and Don "SoCalQuest" Nguyen.

Galfond will also be making 4-6 videos per month.

The cost?

A monthly subscription is $29.95 per month, plus a $99.99 sign-up fee.

A six-month subscription is $229.99, with no additional sign-up fee.

A one-year subscription is $399.99, with no addition sign-up fee.

The site also includes blogs, articles and a forum. People who register who don't upgrade to a paid account will be able to access everything but the videos.

Tom Dwan recently issued the "durrrr" challenge, which is open to any player in the world EXCEPT for Phil Galfond. If that isn't great marketing for BlueFirePoker, then I don't know what is.

Galfond also made over $7 million dollars on Full Tilt Poker last year, plus he took down his first World Series of Poker bracelet.

The poker training niche may be very crowded, but I don't think that this will stop people from flocking to Bluefirepoker. Galfond is one of the very best players in the world right now, and I think that people will lap up his videos. Not only that, but he has managed to assemble a very strong team of pros that should produce some excellent content.
