DOYLESROOM SOLD TO AMERICAS CARDROOM

Date October 2011
Price Most likely insolvent
Asset DoylesRoom
Buyer
Status Migrated with Americas Cardroom
Software No
Success

DoylesRoom former home of Doyle Brunson was sold in October 2011 to Americas Cardroom on the Yatahay network (now Winning Poker).

In the aftermath of Black Friday Doyle Brunson announced he no longer was part of DoylesRoom. DoylesRoom had only 4 months earlier left the Cake Poker network (now Revolution Gaming)

DoylesRoom had left Cake Network with a debt believed to be around $5 million dollars. Cake did not take legal action against DoylesRoom since it was believed to be almost bankrupt. The player deposits had vanished.

DoylesRoom joined the Yatahay network, in January 2011, mostly known as TruePoker & BetChris. Without Doyle Brunson endorsing DoylesRoom and with all the bad publicity involving the Cake departure it was decided that DoylesRoom would be migrated with Americas Cardroom in October the same year.

Americas Cardroom was formerly a skin on the Ongame network until UIGEA was signed into law when it closed its doors soon after. The rebirth of Americas Cardroom was mainly noticed because of the so-called acquisition of DoylesRoom.

It was likely that the player accounts yet again (as seen with Cake) had been funded by the network in a desperate attempt to sign a well-known brand. If Americas Cardroom / BetChris / Yatahay in fact did not fund DoylesRoom it was probably a good deal since it achieved DoylesRoom's database.
