    It's quite a big developed site, so not really a "comparable" sale.

    listed on dnjournal so they consider it a domain sale

    im sure his site never looked this good lol
    looks like its being completely rebuilt to me, in which case it was sold on a domain only basis

    Ron's normally pretty strict on this so I'm guessing was the case
    no screenshots over at domaintools

    sure old site was green and dated looking with not much info on

    No.

    Think what poker.co.uk would reach?!

    I heard a rumour they had turned down a 7fig offer at one point.

    Ok seeing big price .org.uk sales is bound to get .org.uk owners (including myself) excited but you're right probably will never match but I reckon it will become more accepted and used commercially as I have already been noticing 8)

    Great buy at that price looks like it's still an old site though the bingo link in the footer still points to a site owned by a Kieron.

    Maybe I should put freeonlinepoker.org.uk up for auction

    Nice .org.uk sale . If the .org.uk corresponding to this and other ultra competitive terms are successful, I can see .org.uk prices rising even more. Since it's already ranking reasonably well, poker.org.uk must have enormous potential.
