    Thumbs up Moniker make me gag

    Better yet who would want to buy a domain from Moniker? It is probably fake or stolen.

    Err .. Poker.com?
    Are you sure?

    I ask because I'm affiliated to their poker room ...
    And I would have expected to hear something from them about this first ...

    wow - if this is true i expect there will be some pretty serious bids involved. i am surprised that such big names would be selling at a time when they will not bring in as much as they likely could at a later time. we'll have to stay tuned

    Gooner, they changed from being a poker room to a portal a month or two ago. Players who had existing accounts were allowed to keep playing, and they created a new poker room brand CarbonPoker.com that it accepting new players. I'm not sure but I would guess the prior Poker.com players and the new CarbonPoker.com players are networked for player liquidity. The change was pretty sudden.

    Yes I'm aware of the change ... and the fact that affiliate links now go to Pokercs.com but ....

    They still have a lot of intellectual value in the poker.com brand as that's what they keep promoting in their banners ...

    So while they own Poker.com that can continue ... but by selling it they do kill the brand. That's a lot of IP to destry ...


    Sure .... if they get 7 figures or 8 figures ($10,000,000) maybe it's a good revenue generator - but with CarbonPoker's brand still in it's infancy they really do run the risk of not having much of a poker network at all.
