Tuesday May 13,2014 : 180VITA ACQUIRES 100 000 STRONG POKER DATABASE
Minor social enhancements planned for established site
Edinburgh-based iGaming firm 180Vita has confirmed the completion of its acquisition of WeakTight.com, a database of online poker hands boasting over 100 000 members, from Canadian firm Sketchpark Software Inc.
The site will join 180Vita's portfolio which already includes PokerVIP, PokerTube, FootballTube and newly launched sports tipping operation Tipday.
180Vita said WeakTight.com, launched in 2008, is visited by more than 5,000 poker players every day. It offers multiple features such as a comprehensive poker hand conversion tool which lets poker players import hand histories and stats on opponents, and analyse individual hands or complete sessions to help improve their play. The site supports cash games and tournaments across multiple poker sites and softwares, with players able to convert hand histories from poker analysis software such as Holdem Manager and PokerTracker.
"We have long admired what WeakTight has done to advance online poker, and first and foremost we want to ensure it continues to be regarded as the best at what it does," said Jamie Nevin, founder of 180Vita. "We have some very exciting plans for WeakTight, and going forward we will work on integrating it into our portfolio of sites while keeping the features which have made it so popular with online poker players around the globe."
180Vita plans on introducing full social media integration that will allow poker players to login in using their Twitter, Facebook or Google accounts.
