    A source at Tribeca Tables has indicated that they will no longer accept customers from the United States. High profile US facing clients of Tribeca include Doyles Room, Golden Palace and Bowmans. Tribeca does have a large European customer base and You must register/login in order to see the link.

    I'll believe this when I see it. Many Tain skins have been vocal about keeping U.S. players and Doyle's Room (and their endless skins) would almost certainly leave Tribeca if the were forced to block U.S. players.

    Yes, this does seem a little unlikely having regard to their previous statements on this issue.

    I've emailed their European md to asked what the position is.

    Kind of surprised to see the GP news in the other forum. I assume this does not affect poker?

    this just in.

    After discussions with its attorneys on the foreseen impacts of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, Tribeca Tables has announced that it will no longer take US based players.

    We are now initiating this policy and will work closely with our customers to ensure as little harm as possible to their overall business. Commented Erik Ahlberg, president of Tribeca Tables

    European managing director Steve Cook said that (it has)taken a considerable amount of time to weigh up all the options and sought a great deal of legal and market advice. Sadly we have no alternative. We have concluded that it is the best way forward for the company.

    Tribeca also said it will now focus on non-US markets; however it would not be taking bets from Israel and Hong Kong players.

    I'm still not sold. Someone I know close to Tain says this is not true and one of my contacts on Tribeca says it is not true and support is telling players it is not true. There are a couple of players that have posted they got emails from Doyle's today that their accounts were closed but there were specific states mentioned, Washington and Louisiana. I am not in one of those states and there are no issues on my end. As a matter of fact Doyle's still has the "Business as usual......." pop up.

    I think there is more then meets the eye here. Tribeca has nothing on their site and their operators do not agree that this is happening.

    I had asked support about a week ago on one of the tribecca sites if they were still taking us players and was told they were. I would want something a little bit more offical to make me think changes were a foot, at least before the PSA comes into force.

    What a pile of BS.

    Golden Palace didn't decided that... WHICH CASINO WOULD TAKE THAT DECISION..?? only reason why they've been affected is because their casino is Playtech and their poker Tribeca's.....

    Some people really like to tell things the way they are not...

    You're hard to please, but here you go. As I said I have personally validated this with Steve Cook, the md for European operations - you'll just have to take my word for that:


    THE TRIBECA POKER NETWORK ANNOUNCES THEIR WITHDRAWAL FROM THE US MARKET

    London, November 10th Following a long period of consultation with its gaming attorneys, Tribeca Tables Europe, Limited, the online poker solutions company, has announced that the company has decided to withdraw its poker room from certain territories; specifically the US, Israel, and Hong Kong markets.

    Tribeca will endeavour to assist its US facing clients in particular with the transition as much as possible. However in light of the recent introduction in the US regarding the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 and in line with most other responsible networks and poker operators, the company will focus on more non US territories and new markets.

    Erik Ahlberg, new President of Tribeca Tables said, We are now initiating this policy and will work closely with our customers to ensure as little harm as possible to their overall business.

    Steve Cook, European managing director added, The board have taken a considerable amount of time to weigh up all of the options and sought a great deal of legal and market advice. Sadly we have no alternative. We have concluded that it is the best way forward for the company.

    Tribecas portfolio of brands still includes many European facing brands such as Sporting Index, Paddy Power, Blue Sq, Victor Chandler, and with the recent merger with Tain, the addition of Expekt.com and its other skins.

    The company also intends to make a further announcement regarding its poker network in due course. For further information please contact: This email is not visible to you.

    Whatever the reasoning, the effect is that they (Golden Palace) are placed in the position of having to make far-reaching changes due to these UIGEA developments and consequences like Playtech and Tribeca (among others) reversing out of the US market.

    Back to Tribeca

    Looks like Tribeca need to sort out what they are going to say before they draft their press releases - the following has just been received from Tribeca Europe's managing director as an addendum to their press release posted earlier in this thread:

    QUOTE:

    Erik Ahlberg, president of Tribeca Tables issued a clarification regarding the policy of players from other territories, specifically Israel and Hong Kong stating that individual operators will continue to make their own decision regarding players from those territories based on their License and company policy.

    UNQUOTE

    So that looks as if they're going to insist on licensees barring US players, but that they can make their own decisions regarding Israel and Hong Kong.

    Why are Israel and Hong Kong singled out, I wonder? Poker Addict - any thoughts?
