Full Contact Poker Moves to Dobrosoft Network

The widely expected move of Full Contact Poker away from its original home on the Pokerroom/Ongame Network resolved this week when FCP announced its relaunching as part of the Dobrosoft Network, also referred to as the Digital Gaming Network. Daniel Negreanu announced the move in a post on his own FCP blog this week, and early reports are while the FCP site members are once again able to play poker, a lot of connectivity bugs are still being worked out.

According to stories here and here, other sites are also in negotiations to join Dobrosoft. Among those most commonly mentioned as being expected to move are the Doyle Brunson Poker Network skins, encompassing Doyle's Room and several others, plus Bowman's Poker. As hinted at on FCP, "many other partners will be joining the (Dobrosoft) network over the next period of time."

Your blogger has long suspected that to be a given --- the UIGEA may have damaged a lot of publicly-traded, British-based software network concerns beyond immediate repair, but the sites themselves are independent entities and have no reason not to pursue connectivity outside the sphere of U.S./U.K. legislation and enforcement.

With a slow news day at hand, it's time to make up another update of the "list," KAP's own guide to where U.S. online-poker players can and can't play. Sounds like a plan, even!
