This is a network that barely has 150 players playing on it at 9PM Eastern time. While you guys keep plugging Victory in various methods it's not helping and the money they are spending isn't helping either. They would've been better off going it solo or join Merge at the very least.

    All you need to do is look at pokerscout or visit any of the everleaf rooms to see things aren't going great there except in the early morning to mid afternoon when it is night time for the Europeans. So again whatever victory thinks they are adding, their not.

    Just my thoughts and observations and it doesn't mean I am right or wrong, everyone's entitled to their own thoughts.

    Take no offense
    Jerald,

    I'm assuming you're referring to this article? Neither the GPWA nor I received any compensation for selecting the rooms I picked to test. And I'll give you the reasoning behind choosing the sites that I did.

    1. PokerStars and Full Tilt are obvious as market leaders, and I already had accounts there.
    2. DoylesRoom is on the Cake Network, one of the larger secondary networks, and the room that I have heard the most about, with its affiliation with Doyle Brunson.
    3. I skipped the CEREUS rooms because I personally am not comfortable depositing with them right now, given their recent history of security problems.
    4. I was working on Bodog, but didn't have an eWalletExpress account set up so wasn't able to finalize whether I'd be able to deposit there. I've since been able to make a deposit there.
    5. I skipped Merge rooms because I personally don't like the software, and would never play there.
    6. I picked Victory as the most well-known site on the Everleaf Network and wanted to have a test on a small network/site.

    That covers the seven largest poker networks that allow U.S. play. I hope this is a sufficient explanation on why I chose to test/forgo deposits at each room for this article.

    As for the cover story in the GPWA Times Magazine (which I also wrote and I hope you take the opportunity to read), I asked the CEO of the company, Dan Fleyshman to address the issue of Everleaf's traffic - and even included some affiliates' negative remarks posted in various forums about the network - in the story. I understand your skepticism, but please be assured that the GPWA (and I) do not have a price tag on editorial content. I left a very good job six weeks ago to come back here (for another very good job). If that editorial freedom didn't exist, I would not be working in this office and writing this post right now.

    Of course PokerStars did it. And they still do. In fact, they just bought several large affiliate sites. Not to mention their advertising budget for TV and print ads.

    While I don't promote Victory, I do respect the effort they're making to "break out" in the industry. They seem to have very deep pockets so maybe they will actually succeed in putting Everleaf on the map.

    You've been slinging some pretty serious accusations around here, first at GPWA and then at Aaron. I don't know what your beef is with Victory but I think you're a little over the top with your mud slinging.

    Hi Steven!

    About a week ago I have received the pack of GPWA Times magazines. Thanks a lot! The quality of the magazine itself is impressive - good job of artists and editors. A lot of interesting interviews - I like that.

    Enjoying reading.

    Hope to receive it on regular basis

    Thanks!

    Regards,

    Eugene

For some regions we send the subscriptions through a mailing house rather than directly from our office, and you are in one of these regions. We'll follow up with the mailing house to identify the issue they are having, but in the meantime we've re-sent the mailing directly from our office. We've included several back-issues in the mailing so you won't miss any that you would have received previously.

    Thanks again for bringing this to our attention.

    Yours,
    Steven

    Hey Steven

    Can you please tell me when the magazines went out? I haven't received mine yet and I didn't have enough room in my suitcase to bring home the one in Prague..

    Cheers

    I know, but my suitcase was full from the get go.. No idea why either.. I never travel that heavy.. I think it was because we didn't know what the weather would be like, and I was going to Budapest first, so I had to pack for hot and cold.. I wish I had taken it with me..

    Maybe it will come in the mail soon enough!
