I think that when a company is going to close down its activities is never a good news.
I hope employers have a new chance and don't lose their job.

Bwin is not a particulary good poker site - the system is filled with errors and the support section is very poor too. I've been playing there for years but its getting worse so i'll need to find a new place...

This was my first room I played in. I trained my play on play money there. There were a lot of normal players to play with. At that time I knew nothing about no deposit bonusses... Now I don't play there of course.

This was also the very first poker room i ever played in ... still remeber the time when i didnt know how to play texas holdem.
The pokerboom is over long time ago and im sure many more pokerrooms will fall due to the economic crisis .

Yep. Ongame clientsoftware is poor. But this keeps the real sharks away from the tables. Cool

For the last 5 years I've heard about how fishy Ongame is so all regulars seek to play there to empty the fish tank. The concentration of fish must get thinner and thinner or Confused

The ongame sites are all casinos or bookmakers too. So they grow their own fish. Smile

Yes I know but they have to grow alot Big Smile cause it's like Mekka for all the regulars I know. But apparently the casinos grow sufficient fish to keep the wheels spinning Smile

I played shortly at Mansion when they were on the Ongame network, couldn't stand the software Aww crap!

THAT is the other point. It is very difficult to multitable with that rubbish clientsoftware. So the grinders play somewhere else. Smile

I dont think this is such a bad thing, just like a casino getting knocked down to build a bigger one.

Less skins in a network are never a good thing. Less chances to get a good bonus/rakeback.

Ah it's a long time since I played on Ongame. Fancy update Tongue

1 skin closes another one pops up I don't think we will run out of skins Smile

I got flamed on a danish forum because I got rakeback on a Ongame skin which is illegal according to Ongame rules and many other players was affraid the specific site would close because of users like me LOOOOOOOOL. It's the specific pokerroom that doesn't follow the rules they signed up for when they joined Ongame not my responsebillity I just MILK MILK if possible Big Smile

Not closed, but maybe kicked out of the network. Like NoiQ from ipoker.
