10/3/09 – The respected online poker information portal Poker Pages.com is to close at the end of this (October) month, according to a website advisory this week.
The notice reads: "It is with sadness and regret that we must announce that Poker Pages and all of its related services will be closed on October 31, 2009.
"For many years, Poker Pages has enjoyed providing the best source of poker-related content, arguably the Internet's largest and most complete live poker tournament results and listings database, as well as a place to play poker for free.
"These services will certainly be missed, but we realize that the most appreciated benefit of our products and services has been the community created by our user base.
"We thank you for the many great years you allowed us to provide you with the best poker content on the Internet and wish you all the best in your future poker endeavors. It has been a pleasure and a privilege serving you over the years!"
When we went to press there had been no response to enquiries seeking a reason for the demise of a popular website. The enterprise is part of the New York-based company Advanced Global Applications LLC.
There is no reason to play poker anywhere else, the most tournaments, the top ring games, biggest prizes and most players. In addition we will give you $600 free on signup. Visit Pokerstars to play.
