Victory Poker, a skin of the cake poker network, has voluntarily chosen to stop offering real money games to United States players.
According to PokerNewsDaily.com, the poker operator, headed by media-friendly poker player Dan Fleyshman, has requested that the Cake Network put in place a 'block’ to stop US players from signing up to their skin. Cake Poker has apparently complied with this request, although the network itself still continues to openly offer poker to US players.
In a recent tweet, Fleyshman said, “Asked the Cake Network to block U.S. players from the Victory Poker site. They are supportive of my decision. Hope it gets regulated 1 day!”. Neither Victory Poker nor Cake Poker are involved in the recent DOJ indictments against the largest US-facing online poker sites.
Victory Poker, which features professionals that include 'Paul Wasicka’ and 'Antonio Esfandiari’, was slated to be in talks with the troubled Cereus to move to their network. It is unclear how Black Friday and their latest move to pull out of the US market will effect these talks.
