The small online poker network Merge is looking to fill the gaping void in the poker market by re-opening its doors to United States customers. The network laid out the welcome mat on Thursday, and while it has not made any official announcements, Member sites such as RPM Pokerhave all begun bringing U.S. players back into the fray.

Merge stopped accepting United States customers in the beginning of June, though it still allowed customers to continue to play at its virtual tables.

With the elimination of the Pokerstars and Full Tilt after black friday, Merge saw its player numbers surge; cash game traffic had increased 79 percent a month after Black Friday, according to PokerScout.com. This was great for the network’s member rooms, but it created one big problem: the flood of refugees caused headaches for the payment processing department. Those problems have now presumably been solved, and players from the USA can enjoy playing for real money again.

If you want to play on this network, we recommend RPM Poker which features VIP support not offered by other sites on the network.
