Welcome to PowerPinochle.com

PowerPinochle.com is a haven for all double-deck pinochle enthusiasts to meet, share, and grow. Players at all levels of skill and experience are welcome. One of our many goals for this website is to create a friendly and helpful environment for new players who want to learn how to play double-deck pinochle. In the past there has been no place for potential pinochle players to go if they wanted to learn how to play this great game. Here, at PowerPinochle.com, we intend to fix that problem by creating different learning tools for new players to use. If you are not new to the game of pinochle, you will enjoy the in-depth and thoughtful pinochle analysis and discussions in the forums. Although we are in the beginning stages of what we hope will be an effective tool for expanding the game of double-deck pinochle, there is something here for players of all skill levels. If you feel something is missing...we welcome you to join us and fill the void. Welcome to PowerPinochle.com!

If you are a pinochle player who also enjoys chess, here is a link to the best online chess site in the world: Online Chess

New Beginner's Training Tool
Under the Basics tab, we have a new addition! The Beginner's Hand Classifier is just one of the new training tools in development for beginning pinochle players. These tools are designed for a player who has no experience with card games of any kind. Please add your comments in the forums, and let us know if these tools are not basic enough. Our goal is to eventually have the training tools in place that will give anyone, who wants to learn to play pinochle, the ability to quickly learn the basics that will allow them to play.

Are You A Pinochle AND Chess Player?
I've noticed that those who love thinking games...love thinking games, and chess is certainly a thinking game. If you enjoy playing your favorite thinking games online, you may want to take a look at GameKnot. If you love chess but don't have the time to sit down for a whole game, GameKnot allows you to make one move and walk away for days until you need to make your next move.

PlayOK Is An OK Place To Play
Well, at this point we have no reason to believe that Yahoo is ever going to revert to a play-for-free model; they're directing us to a site where there's a fee to play. Not a large fee, to be sure, but still a fee. That doesn't really appeal to most people. Everywhere else I've tried, has tons of issues. PlayOK at least keeps the overall play environment clean and simple.
