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.

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.
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
i played there through a no deposit bonus, which isnt given anymore, through another affiliate... i liked their layout. it was funny to play there. i made good cash there, regarding the argument that i only played NL 10.
