I did not expect a poker room to be worth that much as long as it is not a big one. Too much money for a smaller room like Doyles... I'm looking at another big poker room like 888 and when i see 100-200 players in a 1 dollar tournament i want to scream... only few players. I do not understand how these small rooms produce nice money when they have 50-60 players in tournaments with 1 $ buy in. Very strange...
Nowadays you never know which internet company will cost several times more next year or will bankrupt tomorrow It's still unpredicatsble in general. Was shocked btw with Ivey's salary, 900k seem to be a ton of money for a poker player! That's how much the top sport stars earn.

crazy money, just crazy money. 230 millions for doyles room, 170 millions for full contact poker, I wonder where the hell these figures come up from? hard to believe that these relatively small room were making 10-20 millions of dollars in profit from rake on a yearly basis, and that is after all expenses...

That must be a big pain. I would have sold on the spot the business, for that money. As they say here, better five in your hand, than ten and wait And he got absolutely nothing after all. Blame it on the laws
