PokerStars Lobby (FSG), which started last February, offered subscribers from all over the world the chance to enter numerous poker tournaments each month for just one fixed monthly fee. Unfortunately, the economic downturn left FSG unable to raise its needed second round of funding, and within a few months of real-money launch the site was forced to close.
PokerStars.com and FSG have forged a deal which sees PokerStars.com taking on all FSG player balances thus ensuring that no FSG players are left out of pocket. FSG players are being invited to transfer their balances to PokerStars. PokerStars will also be hosting a series of freeroll tournaments for FSG players to welcome them to the PokerStars community.
Dan Goldman, President and CEO of Fleet Street Games, LLC said: "Many FSG players will, I am sure, already be familiar with PokerStars. It is, as I know from long personal experience, the best all-round online poker site in the world and although we are obviously extremely disappointed that we couldn't make a go of FSG in the present economic climate, we are thrilled that we have been able to secure such a great new home for our players."
