Yes, I'm aware of the difference between C and Erlang implementations, but 
I just hoped to find an easy solution to get performance to acceptable 
level with Erlang too. Of course it might increase the performance of C 
implementation as well but I thought that performance level high enough 
(although you probably want all you can get) might make it unnecessary to 
make exotic out of Erlang solutions. Just shooting from the hip.

No problem. I'm glad if I could contribute something as I've enjoyed 
reading about your poker game server.
