In the latest consolidation move in the poker world PKR has announced to join the Microgaming network later this month. They will keep their unique 3D clientsoftware, but their player base will be merged with the players at the Microgaming sites.
I liked Microgaming when I played on the network frequently during the 'old-skin-Unibet' years, the traffic wasn't something spectacular but at least it was steady and cross-network promotions made my tournament profits decent due to getting many beatable opponents on my level. I tried them again last year with RedStar but it just wasn't the same. I am curious what P-K-R could bring under the tent besides the playerpool.

This is an interesting move, but with PKR at 38th on the list compared to MPN at 10th, and jointly they will be 8th, just behind PartyPoker, you can see why it makes sense to,PKR. It will be interesting to see the difference and whether it makes life any better for PKR players.

Its a while since i last heard about PKR here. Microgaming was a thriving network at some point. Then many sites fled. It will add to their database that is for sure, and will keep microgaming still up. I wonder if they will manage to stay on business after all as a network.

Microgaming is hundred percent more into (making) casino games and video slots, providing a pokernetwork is just a side effect of those things since it's easier to get you 2 download their casino apps if they already included them in the poker client. Every MGS pokerclient.
