This week IveyPoker.com made an even bolder move, acquiring the online poker training site Leggo Poker, which will be rebranded as Ivey League. Ivey League will feature the current content found on the site, and Leggo Poker coaches will stay on and keep producing content for Ivey League, in addition to sponsored pros from IveyPoker.com creating training videos for the site.

According to the press release announcing the acquisition of Leggo Poker IveyPoker is preparing for the launch of a social media and mobile online poker room as well. It appears the site launch as a freeplay online poker room while Ivey League will continue to be a subscription-based online poker training site.

Here is a look at the press release announcing Ivey Poker’s acquisition of Leggo Poker:

February 6, 2013, Las Vegas, NV – IveyPoker today announced the acquisition of LeggoPoker, a community-based website focused on teaching poker strategy through instructional videos from professional experts.  Founded by Phil Ivey, IveyPoker offers a suite of innovative poker products and services designed to both entertain and educate poker players of all levels.  The acquisition of LeggoPoker will serve as the foundation for a new IveyPoker product offering called Ivey League – a subscription-based poker teaching site featuring training videos and content from Team Ivey, a network of the world’s best professional poker players.

Building off of LeggoPoker’s well established and reputable poker training site, Ivey League will be the most effective way to improve one’s poker game by offering detailed, individualized instruction from world-class coaches who are invested in making better poker players.  LeggoPoker’s team of highly skilled instructors, including Aaron Jones, Dan Smith, and Andrew Lichtenberger, will expand to include members of Team Ivey.
