Posted by doomdy: So much pokersites are closing down Who is next Its like big companys slurping the small ones, but this is different, the small ones just closing bit by bit
i also noticed latley that alot of the smaller poker sites are closing down, its like a spreading virus of sickness putting these sites down lol. Never heard of Noble Poker atleast their keeping the casino opens and leaving your account balance in there
Poker site advertizing is misleading at best. On the one hand they tell you one can play for free, then if one wins anything try cashing out. The average person doesn't have the time to clear the bonuses they offer and most give up. Not surprised to see sites going down. Some people you only have to bad beat once and their gone never to return...doesn't matter what poker theory is. Then there are the botters, new legislation, new taxes. The poker "hay days" are over and imho has lost its allure. Too hard to win and too hard to cashout online for the average person....they get better odds at bingo.

Its like an epidemic But its the natural course with everything thats happening in the Poker world, and everything started from some greedy politicians that wanted to put their hands deeper in our pockets.

Well not surprised really - I thionk during the poekr boom there were a lot of rooms opened up and maybe survived and made monye initially.
but due to the economic woes globally and big sites like PS blowing everyone out the water promotionally it's only natural.
Everything has its peak, I think poker peaked between 2000 and 2010 or so.
But even on 'big' sites like 888 there is a lack of people playing SNG's..have to wait ages for 18 man SNGs often. That's why people go to PS and other big networks, because there's guaranteed activity.
