Zynga, owners of the world’s largest poker room, on Tuesday announced the acquisition of the team behind Poker Table Ratings.
PTR was created by the team at MarketZero. However, Zynga isn’t acquiring MarketZero, they’re just hiring the team at MarketZero. In correspondence with Zynga, they confirmed that PokerTableRatings.com will continue to be owned and operated by a separate entity, and that “…all of the user accounts on PokerTableRatings.com will be unaffected by this news.”
In semi-related news, Zynga also told us other PokerCon‘s may be on the table, as they “hope to continue to show our fans love with more types of these events.”
