n addition, no new sign-ups of US players will be allowed on any Tribeca member site, effective immediately. Doyle’s Room was by far the largest room affected, with other notable sites including Platinum Poker, BetUS Poker, GoldenPalace.com and the new StraightFlush.com Poker among the temporarily impacted brands.
The move comes as Tribeca continues its ongoing merger/acquisition process with Nicosia-based Playtech, in a move that will still unite over 200 smaller and mid-sized sites into a single network. The Playtech merger includes sites formerly on the Tribeca, Tain and i-Poker networks.
Tribeca was the only segment of the planned, enlarged Playtech network that was still offering services to US players, and even at that, not to all 50 states; at last count, slightly more than half of the hundred or so listed Tribeca sites were still offering partial U.S. connectivity.
