IveyPoker Buys LeggoPoker, Plans to Launch Ivey League

IveyPoker shows it can do more than sign endorsement deals.

IveyPoker announced the acquisition of community-based poker training site LeggoPoker.com, plus plans for a new poker product offering called Ivey League.

Over the months since IveyPoker launched they've signed no less than 28 poker pros but did little to indicate what the site would actually do.

The answer to that question is now more clear, however, as IveyPoker explains that LeggoPoker will serve as the foundation for a new subscription-based poker teaching site.

“In my opinion, LeggoPoker is one of the best teaching sites on the market,” said Phil Ivey.

“They are a great match with IveyPoker and together we will offer a top-notch educational poker destination in Ivey League.”

The subscription-based strategy service has been modeled to pick up where IveyPoker's soon-to-launch free social and mobile poker game leaves off with aspiring players' poker educations.

LeggoPoker coaches Aaron Jones, Dan Smith and Andrew Lichtenberger will join Team IveyPoker and continue teaching poker strategy via the new Ivey League.

To elaborate on the new acquisition Ivey sat down with LeggoPoker's Aaron Jones.
