Poker Pros Network To Leave Cake, Ditch US Registrations
The Poker Pros Network (PPN) has become the latest site to move to a European internet domain to comply with the crackdown on sites offering online poker to US players. The site also stated that it would be leaving the Cake Network in the near future and establishing its own proprietary software platform, a move expected to take place some time in early autumn.
The PPN will stop accepting new customers based in the United States from August 31st, although players who have registered accounts prior to that date will still be able to play on the site.
Announcing the news in a press release on Thursday PPN owner Chuck Kidd stated: “We here at PPN are dedicated to improving our software, creating a safe environment for players to compete, and encouraging our pros to be available to customers at all stake levels. It’s been a lot of work, but what we’re introducing later this year should turn the online poker industry on its head.” The site plans to offer features such as “live dealers” and “dealer’s choice” games in the secondary stage of its software roll-out.
PPN boasts the slogan “Where the pros come to play you” and the ethos of the site is that its professional team members are accessible at all levels, and that anyone can challenger a team pro to a heads up game for amounts from $2 to $2,000. PPN team professionals include Kevin Vandersmissen, the 2010 Belgian Player of the Year, Matias Gabrenja, Stefan Mattsson, Neil Stewart and James Worth
