01/12/2012 : New brand is ‘The Winning Poker Network'.
The Costa Rica-based Yatahay Poker Network has announced that effective January 12, 2012, it has been renamed The Winning Poker Network.
A company spokesman said the name change is a natural fit for a network that has grown substantially since early 2011.
"After the fall of the big three last April, the Yatahay Poker Network positioned itself as the best destination for US players looking for a safe, secure and fun online poker site," he said. "It did so by substantially improving its software, by acquiring DoylesRoom, and by committing big money to growing its online poker community.
"The online poker network has seen substantial growth, and players at The Winning Poker Network's online poker sites – including Americas Cardroom, True Poker, BetCris and others – have seen prize pools in tournaments grow on a monthly basis over the last six months."
Latest independent monitor Pokerscout numbers tend to confirm the company's boast, reporting that Yatahay traffic has increased by 82 percent over the past year.
Established in 2001 as Yatahay, The Winning Poker Network offers a full-service operation catering to customers amongst established gaming operators.
