When you visit the home page of the site, you can read "back soon". But what is meant by "very shortly"?
In a statement addressed to his players, the Director-General Luc Le Borgne said that 200% Poker will be "put to sleep" from May 2, 2011. One could read: "200% Poker took the decision to bring the room to sleep with effect from 2 May 2011" This measure is motivated by the objective of provide quickly all the french players a solution much better suited to their needs and their level of demand".
Recall that 200% Poker is part of the Microgaming network (888, PokerXtrem, MyPok, and PokerSubito) and has a license from the ARJEL.
This "sleep getting" seems not definitive. The people who work behind this poker room seem to want to find the necessary means to make it more interesting, better adapted to their players, in order to meet their requirements. Note that several rooms have already received their license from the ARJEL and that therefore, the french market is very competitive. With interesting than those made recently by ChiliPoker innovations, the different rooms are on the market must be constantly evolving. Players, with so many games on offer, will obviously be very demanding!
If you have funds to this room, don't worry because leaders assure you that you will soon be able to remove them without problem. On this subject: "rest assured that as soon as possible, we will be able to credit your positive balance on the bank account associated with your 200% Poker player account." We will keep you subsequently informed of the progress of 200%poker.fr."
According to their announcement, the return of this room (or the alarm clock if you prefer) will be in the near future ("very soon" in their own words). PokerCollectif will keep you abreast of any development concerning 200% Poker.
It is worth noting that 200% Poker was not very busy and that it could be a turn off for several players. We are curious to see what they will do to increase the number of players on their tables.
