Yahoo Japan Poker

Another quick and easy way for Japanese to play poker in Japanese is in the Games section of Yahoo Japan. They have a pretty decent Java-based Holdem Game there, that handles Japanese names and chat, and is pretty accessible to your average Japanese guy on the net who can figure out Yahoo. Seems like a pretty good way for Japanese new to the game to try it out for free, but they have to discover the page and have some interest in the first place.

Tonight there are about 49 players in the "Beginner" section, but no one on the higher levels. The JPPA was also doing a regular gathering on Yahoo Poker on Monday nights in one of the higher-level rooms, but I've never managed to catch it. Maybe next week.
