First rake free poker room closes

InfoPowa reported the advent of the Zero Rake.com poker site earlier this year as an innovative idea that could find favor with the players, but it seems we called it wrong.

In a move that suggests that the owners have changed their status from poker room to affiliate promoting someone else, Zero Rake was informing players as we went to press that a $25 000 freeroll tournament on which they had hung marketing publicity had been handed to Action Poker Gaming site Holy Cow Poker.com. Zero Rake players will get a rather measly $10 "promo bucks" but otherwise have to re-register at Holy Cow, suggesting that they are being "migrated" across.

Rather ominously, the message from Zero Rake included the following comment: "Unfortunately the support for the Internet's only rake free site has been much less then we'd expected."

No explanation was given, and at press time we had not received a response to our queries.
