Doyles Room Ceases To Exist

It has been announced that the online poker room Doyles Room, founded in 2004 by poker legend Doyle Brunson, has now been sold to Americas CardRoom (ACR) for an undisclosed sum.
“We’re very excited with the acquisition of DoylesRoom and the resulting expansion of the Americas CardRoom brand. DoylesRoom’s new software that’s proving to be a player favorite coupled with their recent success in serving US players made the company attractive for a takeover,” commented an ACR representative on the acquisition.
America’s Card Room itself was launched back in 2001, and was regarded as one of the premier poker card rooms at the time. However, the site decided to leave the market in 2006 after the  UIGEA was passed only to reappear last month with its doors now open to US players.
Americas CardRoom re-emerged on the Yatahay Network, where Doyles Room is already located, and is believed to be in the process of acquiring skins to fast-track itself to becoming a household name in the online poker market.
Doyle’s players will now find themselves transitioned to their new home this week, and with both sites located on the Yatahay Network, there will be minimal disruption for Doyles Room players who will keep their user names and login details. It is also believed that the DoylesRoom brand name will then cease to exist and as an ACR representative explained:
“Players and affiliates can rest assured that their balances are safe and secure and Americas CardRoom will honor all of the existing DoylesRoom agreements. With more liquidity being injected into the operation of the business, players can expect to see bigger guarantees, better promotions, and greater incentives for being a part of the Americas CardRoom community.”
Yahatay is one of the safest networks still offering sign-up and deposits for US based players, and one of the few catering to US players along with Cake Poker, Everleaf Gaming and Bodog. Merge Gaming Network still continues to operates in the US but doesn’t allow new sign ups.
