4/17/2012 : GUTSHOT LEAVES IPOKER NETWORK
Multiroom solution in joining Merge Gaming and ENet
Curaçao-licenced poker room Gutshot.com has migrated from the iPoker Network to Merge Gaming and Italian-focused network ENet following the news that iPoker had splitting out the larger poker brands from the rest of the skins under consideration, reports poker information site PokerFuse.
The company's recently acquired Dutch-facing poker room pokerhuis.com has also made the network move from iPoker.
GutShot's latest migration follows other moves in its five-year history from Microgaming to Cake Poker to iPoker, and now Merge and ENet. Despite joining Merge Gaming, GutShot will reportedly not accept US play.
“It was always going to be a tough transition to mirror the liquidity of iPoker, even though the games there are not as good as they once were,” said Gutshot Poker Club founder Barry Martin in a Pokerfuse interview. “The only way to accomplish this was to go down the multi-room solution.”
“Merge has fantastic action, but we needed something extra for our players in European time zones,” added Martin. “The games on Enet are famously loose and wild, and with their innovative new client coming soon we are impressed that they are constantly working to improve the playing experience. The opponents on Enet are softer than anywhere else, and the games are more fun.”
