BlackChip Poker Moving to Winning Poker Network

Last Updated on

BlackChip Poker has announced that they are leaving the Merge Poker Network and will move to the Winning Poker Network.  Winning, formerly Yatahay, already hosts the popular Americas Cardroom.  This announcement comes on the heels of BlackChip abruptly pulling out of the Merge Network Poker Maximus series.  BlackChip Poker posted a brief statement on their Facebook page moments ago.  Below is the full text of that statement.

We’re pleased to announce that on Monday we’ll be moving to the Winning Poker Network. WPN have a reputation for providing the best payouts and customer service of any US-facing network, and we felt this move would be beneficial for our players and partners.
We look forward to providing the level of service our players and affiliates have come to expect from us over the last few years.

Just to clarify a few points:

1) p2p transfers will be available again next week (after the move);
2) It will be necessary for players to be verified by WPN, regardless of whether or not they’ve previously been verified by Merge. We will email players who have a pending withdrawal on Monday to explain how they can go about this to ensure they’re paid as quickly as possible;We’ll be happy to answer any operational questions, but please understand that we’re keen to look towards a positive future. We know payouts are a top priority for those who have been waiting and these will be expedited once the move is complete. Any queries should be directed to

We look forward to a great future on the Winning Poker Network.
