As reported previously Tribeca Tables has announced that it will no longer welcome U.S. players starting February 28th. Doyle's Room is on the Tribeca Network and thus affected. Doyle's Room is planning to move to a new network somewhere in March, but it isn't clear right now if U.S. players will be allowed on the new platform either.
U.S. players are presented with a popup on login that tells them to go to nouspokerroom.com, a site owned by Tribeca Tables. The message on that site reads:
"You are receiving this message because, based on your IP address, it appears highly probable that you are located in the United States.
On October 13, 2006, the Unlawful Internet Gambling Act of 2006 was signed into law. Under the Act, much Internet gambling in the United States is now potentially illegal, depending on the laws of the state where the player is located. However, as a poker room serving various operators, we do not know the players, where they are located, or even if they are playing for money or just for fun. So, we have required poker sites using our room to reject money players from states where it is illegal.
Unfortunately, some sites have not been successful in their implementation of this requirement, and given the fact that we cannot differentiate legal from illegal play, we are left with no alternative but to block all players who appear to be located in the United States. We are putting all players on notice that access to real money tables and tournaments in the poker room from the United States will be blocked as soon as the blocking technology is tested and implemented; this is currently scheduled for February 28th at 23:59 GMT.
After February 28th, although you will not be permitted to play poker, you will still be able to access the cashier function of your poker operator through the cashier tab for a limited time. We suggest that you contact your poker site’s customer service with any questions you may have.
We apologize to players who are just playing for fun, to players located in states where Internet poker may be legal, and finally to players outside the United States whose Internet traffic is being routed so as to appear to be originating in the United States."
In conclusion: Doyle's Room will no longer accept U.S. players starting February 28th due to a decision by Tribeca Tables. They expect to be switching to a new poker network somewhere in March. It's not clear right now if the new software will allow U.S. players to play, best thing to do right now if you're a player at Doyle's Room is to contact their live support and ask for advice.
