PKR will leave the regulated italian market with immediate effect. So players can't play there any more, but can withdraw their funds. Tracking sites showed only a very low number of cash players for this room, so the move comes as no surprise.

If the tracking sites are right, they had a max of 12 cash players. At peak times! That is as bad as Duck p0ker. No way a room can survive for long with such a tiny player base. The divisions, caused by the closed and regulated markets, will surely find other victims.

cannot imagine how someone could make the decision of leaving the country of spaghetti, pizza, Sicilian mafia, not Sicilian mafia, pizza mafia, spaghetti mafia, soccer mafia (aka juventus fc), Dolce & Gabbana (aka D&G = Douche & Garbage, or Drunk & Gay), house of Prada, magatt...

here's a paparazzi shot of magatt at the beach:

12 players only? Were they losing by being open to players from Italy?
If not i dont see the reason for that move. So if magatt is one of them there were still 11 more
playing at PKR? Is that right magatt? Smile

The divisions realized with the closed and regulated markets, caused by the greed of italian government will surely find other victims.

hahaha Smile Pochui

Also, I think they must mean 12 Italian cash players, not just 12 players, PKR is definitely suffering, but they have more than 12 players.

Of cause they had a larger player pool than just 12 players. But a maximum of a dozend cash game players indicates, that they can't make a lot of rake there. So i'm not surprised, that they called it a day.

If they are not losing money from just being open in the specific market i dont see the reason
why moving out.
But failing to draw magatt into playing there, was the final hit for them Smile
There goes the 3d poker for italians..... lol

I think it must have been legal reasons and the Italian market (12 players?) wasn't big enough to justify a segregated server.
