Very disappointing. And leaving me in bewilderment.
Here we have a pretty good poker software, still a little rough around the edges, but a very good foundation worthy of polishing up to be potentially great software on par with the Big 3. From a purely ergonomic POV, this software is worthy. Really think Doyle was in a very +EV situation. But, as always, poker is imperfectly saddled with incomplete information, and he must feel he knows something the rest of the world understands differently than how he understands it.
With no mention of Yatahay on the current site, I had entertained the notion that Doyle had finally taken control, and set him and his site up for a peachy opportunity.
Delusional I guess.
Which leaves a nice piece of software out on the market. I'm thinking Stars and Tilt will keep close control of their software, Cereus might dump their software to WPT. Leaves the Merge sites with software that has changed since Black Friday in a good way, and Bodog, which most all will agree leaves a lot to be desired software wise. Think Bodog could probably make a killing with this software. (Hint Hint!)
