Last week, several top poker rooms were invited to gather at the poker summit. The idea was initiated by Phillip Nagy, CEO of the Winning Poker Network, which includes PokerKing and Americas Cardroom.
On his Twitter, Nagy proposed a live summit to four poker rooms: PokerStars, GGPoker, partypoker and Run It Once Poker. The head of WPN called the event Good4Poker.
Later Phillip invited everyone to participate in the summit and explained why this meeting was important. He highlighted the fight against conspiracy, bots, and other online scams.
More than a week has passed by now, but none of invited poker rooms have supported Nagy’s idea. Only partypoker left a link to Rob Young’s account without any comments. Young also did not react in any way on the idea of Good4Poker.
Nagy decided not to back down and conducted an interrogation among his subscribers. He suggested doing merchandise labeled Good4Poker and asked if people would wear it. 44% said they wouldn’t. However, this did not stop Phillip and a few days later he presented the design of Good4Poker t-shirts.
It is not known whether the head of WPN will succeed in gathering the summit that he so fired up with. Last year, Rob Young wanted to combine poker rooms in the Fairplay project, which pursued similar goals – the fight against fraud in online and offline poker. However, the project did not receive support and was closed soon.
