    Post Internet's first real-money poker room shuts down

    Planet Poker, the first real-money poker room in Internet history, is shutting its doors on March 31st. The company says small poker rooms can't survive in the post-UIGEA climate, and it's time for them to close. So please, as you work today, take a moment to remember one of the original pioneers.

    Wow, if this is true it is very sad but I'm afraid we'll see a lot more of this in 2007.

    Yeah, it is a shame to see many of these great places closing down.

    This was one of the few poker rooms I could earn anything decent with. It looks like my poker earnings are going to get even smaller.

    Never heard of them ...
    With marketting like that it's a great example of why they're shutting down.


    As is the way with most things - it's not the real innovators that get the cream - it's the businessmen that swoop in behind and combine the new idea with elbow-grease and a good plan.

    Full respect to Planet Poker then as someone who got this whole thing started.


    RIP Planet Poker
