PokerStars Acquires pokerpages.com, poker-babes.com and playwinningpoker.com
Posted on April 23, 2010 by John Trevors for Luckyroom.com
The world’s largest online poker room (pokerstars.com) has moved forward with its online marketing strategy by acquiring three poker portals under its wing including the popular poker pages which late last year has closed its doors to its readers after the previous management had announced that they were having financial troubles. The other poker portals which have been acquired are popular poker bio directory poker-babes.com and similar structured playwinningpoker.com.
Pokerpages.com which was launched in early 2000 and was once a leading online poker portal which offered extensive poker room reviews and poker strategy articles and evidently made its income from the advertising space which it offered to real money poker rooms. Over the last 2-3 years the popularity of pokerpages.com had gradually decreased after the appearance of pokerlistings.com which finally lead to a decision to terminate updates on the site in late 2009. The popularity and the maturity of the domain is anticipated to be a major contributing factor to the increase of traffic to pokerstars.com as the portal maintains an enormous database of opted in subscribers.
The “Winner’s Guide to Online Poker” which was created by Steve Badger, poker player and owner of playwinningpoker.com 2000 was virtually the first strategic guide for online poker and included areas such as Texas Hold’em, Omaha, tournaments analysis, blinds play, psychology of poker bankroll management and many others areas of both online and in live play.
Finally Poker-Babes.com was founded by Shirley Rosario 2003 and was the first website providing profiles and pictures of famous and successful poker players in addition to detailed strategy articles of less known games such as Omaha, Razz and Badugi.
It is worth mentioning that both poker-babes.com and playwinningpoker.com are the two only websites in addition to pokerstars.com which are referred to in mega giant card game site pagat.com which is closed for advertising due to a special agreement with pokerstars.com. This leads us to the conclusion that although the decision to officially acquire the rights of using the two websites has been made during this period it most likely probable that the decision had been taken since last year as pagat.com a site with more than 1200 card game related pages online since 1995 does not offer any sort of advertising positions beyond the three sites it currently refers to (pokerstars.com, poker-babes.com and playwinningpoker.com).
