Zynga first announced the partnership (http://www.pokernewsdaily.com/zynga-bwin-party-partner-for-real-money-uk-offering-22726/) with bwin.party in October 2012,
This is truly terrible news.
Zynga entering the real money market would have been such a huge boost to the poker economy if it had been at a non-segregated site.
If it brings in a shedload of fish it will also bolster party's position segregation or not and pave the way for more sites to follow.
Party's executive has specificly said the segregation is to deter unprofitable players (winning players who don't deposit) from playing. If segregated sites were to become the norm it really would be a death knoll for making money from online poker. I was hoping their losses since segregating would deter them but this would really turn things round.
