Popular poker forums Two Plus Two gets a new owner after 24 years
By Bob Garcia
Terms of the sale of the platform have not been revealed
The poker forums serve a myriad of purposes and the community has taken full advantage of them. From finding out who the winner of a recent major event was, to sharing techniques and strategies to improve your level, can be found on these types of websites. It has been 24 years since Two Plus Two Poker Forums was founded and, according to the latest updates, it has just been taken over by a new owner, who will be in charge of its administration from now on. The sale was announced by co-founder Mason Malmuth in the also well-known News, Views, Gossip and Books sub-forum.
“I have an important announcement to make. This website, www.twoplustwo.com, has been sold. It’s hard to believe that it was 24 years ago when twoplustwo.com was launched, and at that time, when we started with just one forum, we thought it would be only fifty percent when we were going to get published. But here we are many years and more than 60 million posts later, and it’s time for new young people to take over and make this site better than ever,” Malmuth wrote in a thread.
Once the news was announced, it was revealed that the new owners are the same people who are in charge of Hand2Note HUD, which is a company that also has a strong relationship with this game due to its third-party poker tracking software. That company has been working hard in this area and claims that within two years, it will be the most popular tracking software anyone has ever seen.
Todd “Dan Druff” Witteles, who a few months ago was involved in an anti-SLAPP case against Mike Postle, decided to do his research and reported that Vancouver-based Russian Andrii Plakhotnyi is the founder of Hand2Note. Malmuth made it clear that, due to his age (almost 70 years old), he decided to sell the site, as he believes that younger people who are on the cusp of technology have better qualities to be able to manage the site in a better way.
