Hi All,

I wanted to hop in here and say hello and see how you all were doing? The Chipleader team and AP/UB have been quite busy getting ready for the merge of Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet onto the new CEREUS platform. As many of you might know AP and UB will be operating on the same network but they will stay completely separate brands.

Here is some information from a Chipleader mailer:

Launch of new online poker platform: CEREUS and what it means for Chipleader affiliates.

New poker platform will integrate customers and features from two leading poker rooms to create third largest online poker network

Miami, FL (PRWeb) July 24, 2008 Today, Chipleader management which handles the affiliate program for both Absolute Poker and UltimateBet announced the upcoming launch of CEREUS: a NEW POKER PLATFORM that will integrate the customers and features from both poker rooms, instantly making CEREUS the third largest online poker network.

CEREUS is the result of more than 12 months innovation and development. Absolute Poker and UltimateBet will retain their unique assets, yet for Chipleader affiliate's this means more of their players at the tables, more action, more tournaments, incredible new features and massive promotions.
