WPT are closing down their Online Poker Room

It will soon be all over for the online poker room of World Poker Tour. A few years ago World Poker Tour opened their own poker client on the Cryptoligic Network in order to host online satellites to their land based tournaments.

Against online poker and the such, so i guess these people who wanted it will see things like this as a victory, which I think stinks, isn't the USA meant to be the "Beacon Of Democracy". How can it be when it dictates what it's people can and can't do, yet they have the gambling capital of the world in Las Vegas.

I doubt that. With the poker boom a lot of rooms have been introduced. They will not all survive the current economic downswing. We will see a lot of the smaller rooms/networks in problems.

WPT Pokerroom, that's pretty cool. I didn't know they had one. Without US players WPT have no choice but to close down.

Now William Hill is the next Cryptologic Site that leave the network after Littlewoods and Poker Plex, its a shame i realy like playing Crypto my Home there is Interpoker nd its always a pleasure to play there , William Hill move to the ipoker network, I also heard rumors that Cryptologic think about to merge with Partypoker , would that mean our Crypto accpounts will be granfathered from Partypoker and then elegible for rakeback on Partypoker ???? now that were a gr8t deal lets wait what will happen

Yep. Will Hill will join ipoker in January. But i can't see rakeback accounts for the crypto sites at party. The loose party fishes would get slaughtert by the tight crypto players.
