Unibet's Carlos Poker To Join Microgaming Network

After its mysterious falling out with iPoker, Carlos Poker has a new home

Apparently unfazed by its recent expulsion on unknown grounds from the iPoker network , Unibet's online poker room Carlos Poker.com has found a new home on the Microgaming Poker Network.

In a press release this week, Unibet claims that the move will take Carlos Poker "to the next level."

"We felt that the Carlos Poker players wanted a new challenge in terms of player experience," said Nils Andén, Head of Poker for Unibet and Carlos Poker. "Since most of our players already have had great experiences with Microgaming we expect the transition to be smooth.

"As a company we also have great respect for Microgaming and we admire their innovation, professionalism and forward thinking. We are confident that our players will greatly enjoy the fast-paced game play, great tournament offering and exciting developments of the network during 2009."

Petter Nylander, CEO of Unibet, added: "We are confident that Carlos Poker will continue to be a vital brand in the poker community, offering that little bit of extra service to the players, always going that extra mile in offering the ultimate player experience."


12 page motion now under consideration

Woman poker ace Clonie Gowen starts the new year still embroiled in a legal battle with Full Tilt Poker , with the giant poker site's latest move a 12 page motion for dismissal of the action.

Full Tilt's legal team filed the motion in answer to Gowen's initial suit, which concerned a number of "breach of contract" and "breach of good faith" issues, for which she initially claimed $40 million in compensation and damages after being dropped by the poker site. Her claim named some of the biggest names in international poker who are associated with Full Tilt, along with companies like Tiltware LLC, Pocket Kings Ltd., and Kolyma Corporation, A.V.V.

This week's move by Full Tilt lawyers Olson, Cannon, Gormley, and Desruisseaux of Las Vegas, Nevada seeks the dismissal of the case - not an unusual legal tactic - and for the other side to refine their claims and re-file their case, or for the individual players named in the original lawsuit to be dropped from the action.

Meanwhile, Full Tilt's owners will be encouraged by the latest MarketPulse.com statistics, which show that on January 4th this (2009) year the website recorded a new high in the average number of players per hour getting into cash games. The 9 936 players independently recorded on January 4th is significantly higher than last year's best days for the site, when 9 704 players were involved on highest traffic days in November and December.

The daily traffic breakdown is an average of player volume by hour over a 24-hour period playing cash games.
