Beat The Fish


I'm Josh H, owner of Beat The Fish.

I launched Beat The Fish in 2005 with one goal in mind: help fellow poker players make better choices.

  • Help players make better choices at the tables to finally beat the fish.
  • Help players make better choices when choosing where to take their hard-earned bankrolls.
  • Help players make better choices that fit their strengths as a player and priorities as an online poker consumer.

Information is powerful.

Before you give your bankroll a new home or play another hand at your current one, I hope to provide some piece of information from my experiences that makes you a better player.
