Failing Economy now effecting poker rooms!!!

Breaking news after a world wind affair with the American market Duplicate poker is now shutting its doors.  Gambling 911 is reporting today that Duplicate Poker is closing due to the hard economical times. 

So now if you go to the Duplicate Poker site you will get their following heartfelt message:

 Dear players,

Duplicate is sadly bidding farewell to its players. Caught in the middle of the global financial situation the company is not able to continue to provide service. We are a small victim of the global financial crisis.

Regretfully as of the today, October 5th, 2008 we are closing our service. We thank our players for being with us. Hopefully at later time and in a better economic climate Duplicate Poker will re-appear.

Sincerely,
The Duplicate Poker Team

 What a blow to the American poker market.  Just last week I was reading on this site gaining such momentum because people in the US could actually make a deposit using their credit cards. There was no more going through a three ringed circus just trying to play a hand of poker but as of Oct 5 it unfortunately ended.  I guess all we can do now is look to the future and hope that the legislation introduced will finally bring us poker players some playing justice.  Until then there are still rooms like www.pureplay.com.  Until next time happy betting!
