London, November 10th - Following a long period of consultation with it's gaming attorneys, Tribeca Tables Europe, Limited, the online poker solutions company, has announced that the company has decided to withdraw its poker room from the US market.

We had agonized over the decision for several weeks, but sadly we have no alternative. We have concluded that it is the best way forward for the company".
Tribeca's portfolio of brands still includes many European facing brands such as Sporting Index, Paddy Power, Blue Sq, Victor Chandler, and with the recent merger with Tain, the addition of Expekt.com and its other skins.
