The existing sponsorship arrangement between DTD & blonde will cease in the next day or two, to coincide with the planned launch of MPPL (My Party Poker Live).

MPPL will generally promote Party Poker events, run Live Updates, host Live Streams of PP cash games, & have a PP facing Forum.

Tighty has been engaged as a member of the MPPL team, & will therefore spend a lot of his time there.

DTD have been very supportive of blonde over the 5 years or so duration of the Sponsorship, we are very grateful to them for that, & we wish them well.

Tighty won't be leaving blonde, but going forward, he'll not be able to spend as much time here as previously, so all the new threads he does daily are likely to reduce substantially. He'll still frequent & post more than most on blonde, but it'll more likely be in the evenings, after his MPPL duties are finished for the day.

The debt blonde owes to Tighty is immense, & I'd like to thank him for that. Happily, he will still be with us, just not as much.

Now, blonde will be seeking Sponsorship elsewhere, & in the interim, the Live & Internet Poker Boards will be reinstated, & the posting restrictions that existed during the DTD period will cease to exist. If you become aware of any companies that might benefit from sponsoring blonde, let us know please. Tighty & I will be making contact with various potential sponsors, but the more the merrier. 

Hopefully, blonde will continue as is in all other respects.

Once the Party Poker & DTD threads are unstickied from the top of The Rail, it will look very different, but it needs Members to start & post in Threads to rejuvenate things. We'll be fine if the Members want us to be, but it does take a bit of effort from all of us.

Sad news Tikay.  Hope there is a good outcome for you and Blonde.

Good luck Tighty.  I hope Party's plans are a success for you..

Hope that a new sponsor is found, and maybe we could have a whipround in the meantime.

Good luck with the new gig, Rich!

What a terrible shame but I guess it was inevitable as the DTD brand seems to be (to me anyway) getting lswallowed up in the PP brand. I guess the Blonde sponsorship deal is a casualty of this “progress”.

As they “better to have loved and lost.....”

Gl to Tighty now he’s moved over to the dark side;) and all the best for the future m8

Congratulations, Tighty. Good luck in your new role.

I hope blonde gets through the next period to find a suitable sponsor (or sponsors).

Cardroom managers weren't permitted to advertise there comps, regular blondes with no attachment to a cardroom could advertise rival events though

Good luck Rich.

Party's gain is our loss. I hope the blondes will try to take up a little of the slack.

Maybe rebrand as poker and sports forum? Lot of the traffic comes from lounge/diary/sports rather than poker specific. Would probably increase traffic, easier to get advertising revenue that way too is imagine.
