Tribeca Tables Europe, Ltd, one of the key players in the international online gaming market, has named Erik Ahlber as president. Since their company recently merged with Tain Poker Network, a Swedish online poker network, Tribeca heads got a chance to work directly with Ahlber and quickly decided that his European expertise was exactly what the company was looking for.

According to Tribeca's European managing direct Steve Cook, Ahlberg is the perfect fit as Tribeca looks to further establish itself in the European marketplace.

"We are very pleased to welcome Erik into the Tribeca family and the company will be able to utilize his poker industry and management expertise to take Tribeca to the next corporate level," said Cook in a recent press release.

Ahlberg was one of Tain's top performers and is looking to take the newly merged companies to the top of the European gaming market.

"Tribeca is the market leader in online poker aggregation. I am extremely excited to be selected by the board. There is a very narrow spread between the top three European poker rooms, and we are the only aggregator. I plan to use consolidation as the core strategy to further our dominance," Ahlberg said.

Tribeca currently partners with Paddy Power, Victor Chandler, and Expekt.com. In addition, the company also announced that it had signed a major poker deal with the Celtic Football Club, a Scottish soccer powerhouse sometimes known as the "Bhoys."

According to Cook, there is a heavy interest in the football-loving European marketplace and plans are to launch poker rooms for a number of other professional football and rugby clubs over the next few months.
