Another Online Poker Closure - Doyle's Room Succumbs To UIGEA

Another blow was dealt to the online poker world late on Monday night as the Doyle Brunson Poker Network, the home of the very popular Doyle's Room (among other sites), decided to close its doors to American players.

"U. S. online poker players are not permitted to sign up for real money play or deposit funds into existing accounts. Commencing March 1, 2007, all U. S. players
on will be blocked and…will be able to access
only the withdrawals page."

An e-mail was sent to all players affected by the shutdown, with a rather interesting proposition given to the American customers. Doyle's Room players will be able to transfer their accounts to Full Tilt, with all action points accrued going along as well.
