PokerNews.com proclaimed their intention to develop poker in the Portuguese, Spanish, Brazilian, and Latin American market and they aim to achieve this goal through forming a strategic partnership with four other major poker related websites; PokerPT.com, PokerPoquer.com, AmericanFlop.com and PokerDoBrasil.com.
The alliance intends to extend to all areas of the poker market including promotions, journalism, strategy, tournaments as well as producing poker magazines for the Spanish and Portuguese consumers.
The meeting between the company heads Tony Guoga, João Nunes, Juan Barros, and Ricardo Pinto took place in Tony G’s country of origin, Lithuania.
PokerNews.com creator Tony Guoga, or ‘Tony G’ as he is known on the poker circuit, is famous for his aggressive play and for badgering opponents at the table. Aside from his successful poker career which includes in excess of $3,000,000 in live tournament wins, he is a successful business entrepreneur and is the chief owner of several high ranking poker information sites which include Pokernews.com, Pokeraffiliateworld.com and Pokerworks.com.
Tony says by pooling their resources together “this team can bring the alliance to a much higher level. I am sure this will reflect on the players. They will have the best opportunities available in the market.”
João Nunes, the creator and head of PokerPT.com and PokerDoBrasil.com, said of the project: “This alliance with the best reputed poker website will bring even more service quality, information, and promotions for all players in our market. It is a huge step for the Portuguese speaking markets.”
The founder and leader of PokerPoquer.com and AmericanFlop.com. was equally as enthusiastic and excited by this new coalition and said: “This partnership with PokerNews, the biggest poker website in the market, will bring better opportunities and more advantages to Spanish speaking players. It is an honor to work with PokerNews as a team,”
All in all this should spell good news for Spanish and Brazilian speaking poker players around the world who should benefit from seeing their market grow and enjoy the extra value that will be added to it as a consequence.
