Is Poker Host on the Move?

February 18, 2009 (InfoPowa News) -- Players at the Poker Host.com online poker venue, currently operating on the Microgaming Poker Network, have started speculating on Internet message boards that the site may soon be seeking a new home.
 
The current conjecture is that the owners are unhappy with excluding U.S. players and are therefore contemplating a move to a more U.S.-friendly network.
 
Several players claim that the poker room's customer service representatives have indirectly confirmed the rumors, advising enquiring American players that U.S. business will be accepted in the near future, which implies a move from Microgaming as that network does not accept new U.S. sign-ups.
 
Microgaming faced a similar problem with Doyle's Room, which left to join the U.S.-friendly Cake Poker Network earlier this year.
 
When InfoPowa went to press it was not known which network will provide a new home for Poker Host ... if the rumors are true. Cake Poker would seem to be a front runner, but the Merge network has also been growing rapidly and could be on the list, along with Everleaf, Everest, and several other smaller but burgeoning venues.
