In regards to the reaction to this news from the poker community, many have been surprised, several disappointed. However, it is only after a few weeks and the players move to the new poker room, can the effects be analysed.
According to a news report from PokerFuse,
The streamlining of Carbon’s flagship offerings likely saves the firm some redundant software and maintenance expense, but comes at the cost of retiring what is probably the longest continuously-running skin on Merge, one which actually pre-dates Merge itself.
The PDC Poker skin has been in the poker industry for a long time and it was first established in the year in 2005. Initially, the site was called Poker.com but this room was then renamed as PDC Poker – which stands for Poker Dot Com.
