Interested in a new way to compare poker players and other members of the poker community? RankingHero has developed a new concept to combine database results with a social component to give HeroScores to those within poker. Anyone can have a HeroScore.

RankingHero doesn’t just use a player’s performance on the felt to determine their ranking. The site also takes into account popularity, by looking at public data from social networks, as well contributions to the poker community and the growth of the game.

Find out your own HeroScore.

RankingHero is also a place for professionals within the poker industry to post their resumes and endorse their colleagues, similar to a LinkedIn. One’s RankingHero profile can also host their social media feeds, serving as comprehensive overview of a person’s poker-playing life.

In addition, professional players looking to build their personal brand can use RankingHero to manage their online reputation and keep in touch with their fan base. Event organizers can promote their tournaments to a huge and qualified audience.

Have you ever cashed in a poker tournament? You can find out if you already have a HeroScore. If you don’t yet, sign up and begin work on your RankingHero profile. It’s never too late to become a recognizable name in the poker community.
