New Server - now at Espernet, not ThunderCity! Just replace references to ThunderCity here to Espernet
IRC stands for Internet Relay Chat. It's a simple chat interface we use to talk to each other during the day, and it usually has a minimum of 15 players at all times of the day, and typically peaks around 30 players in the evenings/night Eastern time.
IRC is perfect for people who like talking about poker or talking with poker players, but don't feel like they're reaching their full potential with the forum/bulletin board interface for communication.

Currently we have two channels: #flopturnriver is for the general chat and banter, and #ftrbc is for all poker chat.
It looks like mIRC has started expiring when it wasn't before, and the thundercity.net website isn't working lately, so here are instructions for using IceChat:
Go download IceChat: IceChat IRC Client :: IRC Client Extra-Ordinaire :: The Chat Cool People Use
When it comes up when you run it, on the left click the Add New button and put in irc.thundercity.net, then choose irc.thundercity.net from the list and click connect. After it connects, type /join #flopturnriver in the box and hit enter, and you're there.
