    Absolute Poker has announced it has acquired Vegas Poker 247.

    No word yet on whether Vegas247 players will gain access to superuser accounts.

    The word that I have received is that AP will migrate players to AP along with the cash they have. Sometime in Mid March when players log on to VP 24/7 they will have a program in place to automatically move the player pver. At that time players will have 2 valid accounts on AP and are welcome to play from either account. I am hoping that I will be able to merge theses accounts into one account to aviod confusion.

    Also they are telling us that if a player is under an affiliate they will remain under them so long as they keep that account. This is the official email I received last week:

    It’s early on Saturday morning and I have just finished completing a deal with Absolute Poker which will see the ownership of VegasPoker247 transfer to them, effective January 1, 2008.

    There are a number of reasons for this change, but at the end of the day this was a change that had to be done.

    I have worked hard with Pete at Chipleader to ensure the best possible outcome for the players, and for you. Here are the high points:

    All player accounts are 100% secure.
    At some point in the future – my guess is 45 – 60 days – players will have their accounts transferred to Absolute Poker and the VP247 site will cease to operate.
    The transition of players will include provisions for multiple accounts, duplicate payment info, etc. This is being worked on now.

    Players tagged to affiliates will retain that tag for as long as the players keep that player account active. If they close their account and open another, or transfer funds to another existing AP account (their choice, this will not be a requirement), then the affiliate tagged to their other account will of course retain that business.

    My understanding is that some sort of incentive will be offered to ensure players make the transition smoothly and to help retain these accounts for our affiliates.

    If for some reason you do not have an active affiliate account with Chipleader please open one as soon as possible and send an email to them with your information. I will be transferring over all of your VP247 affiliate account information to them so that they can re-tag your players properly.

    So effective immediately your contact for VP247 accounts is pete@chipleader.com. This includes tournaments, payments, and any other issues/needs.

    I of course am totally available, and in fact look forward to speaking with you about this change, and what we are doing now.

    We will communicate this information directly to the players this coming week, but we wanted to give you advance notice.

    Thanks for your understanding, and my apologies for the short notice, and the impersonal email. Hopefully we can talk early next week.
