NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwire - May 2, 2012) -, a 120,000-member online poker community and one of the leading sources for poker news, tournament results, and rankings, has launched localized poker community pages. Dubbed PocketFives Local, the project provides a unique medium for poker players to view local activity and interact with local players.

Every country in the world and each U.S. state has its own PocketFives Local page that displays activity like the latest posts in the PocketFives forums, new members, player accolades earned, and cashes in live and online tournaments.

Local poker players can interact with each other, congratulate one another on their achievements, and discuss breaking news all on one page. A PocketFives Rankings leaderboard is tabulated and displayed for each location.

PocketFives Co-Founder Cal Spears pointed out the key functionality of PocketFives Local: "The central feature of this page is a column displaying updates on players in that location. Any time a player in that location does something noteworthy, such as cash in a live or online tournament or win a new PocketFives badge, we'll automatically generate a post to this column."

Players can filter the feed in a variety of ways. The United States poker community is the largest on and has nearly 40,000 registered members. The United States and all other countries have several "Leaders," including "Ambassador," "Chip Leader," "Table Captain," and "Grinder."

The United Kingdom poker community is also one of the largest PocketFives Local pages around. The California poker community is the largest state community. Detailed stats on each page show the number of members, total cashes by all members, largest cash, recently logged in members, and more.

Players from every country around the world and all 50 states are encouraged to check out their own PocketFives Local community by visiting and clicking on the yellow "Local" link at the top of the site.
