Magasinet Poker Europa Lukker

Poker Europa

September-udgaven af Poker Europa, med EPT Tallin vinder Kevin Stani

Det længstlevende pokermagasin i Europa, Poker Europa nedlægger virksomheden. April-udgiven bliver det sidste blad fra magasinet, som udkom første gang 1. januar 1999.

Grundlægger Nic Szeremeta siger følgende om valget af nedlæggelsen:

“As a free publication we have always depended on advertising for our revenue and since the recession this has declined by over 60 per cent. At the same time our production and distribution costs have been rising.”

“Mergers, acquisitions and closure of online card rooms have weakened our potential market and the bright young things who now promote and market poker prefer to use the Internet rather than print media. Operators of bricks and mortar poker rooms are also cutting their budgets.”

“The situation is not helped by the fact that some operators seem to think they can get away with not paying their bills”.

Magasinet var et af de første til at udgive turneringslister og resultater fra Europæiske turneringer. Szeremeta siger at formålet med magasinet var at knytte pokersamfundet på denne side af atlanten sammen:

“In this we succeeded. However the increase of such information on the Internet, supplied as it happens, now makes print publications almost irrelevant.”

“One thing I know about poker is when to quit the game and this is it.”

Szeremeta for for nyligt “The Lifetime Achievement Award under European Poker Awards i forrige måned.
