Zynga Hires Team From Poker Industry Service Provider MarketZero

Zynga is announcing today that it has “acquired the team” from MarketZero, a long-time poker services provider. The Austin, Texas company, which is apparently not being acquired itself, runs a web site for online card players called PokerTableRatings. Self-described as a “collection of useful tools designed to help poker players maximize their online profits,” the site includes a variety of community and reporting tools so players can find friends, research the history of opponents, and more.
