National League Of Poker Offers More Games

The National League of Poker (NLOP) will be changing its name to Power Play Development Corporation after a successful merger with the publicly traded company Wednesday, Oct. 25.

NLOP and its software provider Poker Creations, will assume management control and become wholly owned subsidiaries of the Power Play Development Corporation, as part of their deal.

"We felt there was an immediate opportunity for growth in our market," said Alan Miller Chairman of the Board of NLOP.

"Congress passed the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) earlier this month and that has dramatically changed the online poker landscape, and brought the demand for a US-legal compliant online poker alternative forward exponentially. We believe that NLOP will be in a stronger position to gain mass-market exposure as a publicly-traded company," Miller added.

NLOP Chief Operating Officer Michael Klebnik said that the NLOP is hoping that the union will bring with it a greater exposure to non-poker offering.

"We've built a very robust gaming platform and we have audiences with many different interests," Klebnik said. "I don't see the interest in poker fading, but maybe it will level off because the rate of increase of adoption has been so dramatic."

The card game 'guts' is such an exciting game wherein the amount of pot increases in an erratic way.

In this special cruel variation, nobody gets the pot except no one else stays in the round.
