Zynga Brings PokerTableRatings Crew Aboard
By Ian Hiaring, Rakeback.com Poker News Staff Writer
In a curious move Zynga, who’s behind the most popular (as well as hated) Facebook apps such as Farmville and Mafia Wars, has hired the development team from MarketZero, the same people who are behind PokerTableRatings.com, one of the most popular online poker tracking sites available today.
At this point, it’s clear that Zynga, who also is behind Zynga Poker, a Facebook poker app that is completely free and has no real money play, is positioning itself for a move towards becoming a player in a legalized online poker world.
That’s old news though; just how Zynga plans to utilize MarketZero in their future plans remains to be seen.
In a post on the PokerTableRatings blog the MarketZero team is congratulated on the move, and the PTR users are assured that things on their end will be business as usual.
