Brokered on behalf of National A-1 Advertising, the domain poker.org was sold to PokerCompany.com for the sum of $1 million. Prior to the sale of poker.org, the highest .org sale was $198,000 for engineering.org, followed by sex.org which sold for $151,400.

On a much, much bigger note though, this begs the question: if poker.org is worth $1M, then how much is wickedchopspoker.org worth? It’s got the word “poker” in it, plus it has two cool words preceeding it, “wicked” and “chops” (respectively). It’s also clear that .orgs are the new .coms. Dot-coms are so 1999. So you can buy a dot-com, which would be like buying a Pontiac Aztec, or you can buy the hot new .org, which would be like buying a 2010 Aston Martin fully equipped including a daily blowjob from Vikki Blows. Your call.
With that in mind, if you are interested in purchasing wickedchopspoker.org, we are willing to sell it. We will start bidding at $1,000,001. Please send all qualifying offers to wickedchopspoker @ gmail dot com…
