Top poker room rankings this week

Top poker room rankings this week

Full Tilt Poker is probably the biggest mover this week having beaten both the iPoker Network and 888Poker to the second position in the rankings right underneath its sister company PokerStars which still reigns supreme above all other poker rooms. Full Tilt Poker now has a seven day average traffic of 2700 players.

Third place in the rank is the iPoker Network with a seven day average of 2600 players. Close behind iPoker is 888Poker with a seven day average of 2300 players. Both these rooms are engaged in a constant battle for second and third place, where they usually find themselves. This week Full Tilt Poker pushed both of them to third and fourth place but this might just be a temporary situation caused by the Big Bonus promotion running at FTP.

PokerStars still reigns above all other rooms and has cemented its position as industry leader. PokerStars cash games increased by 5% last week securing the company's position even further. Offline it seems to be the opposite situation with rumours abounding about New Jersey's Division of Gaming Enforcement not approving PokerStars' license application.

At fifth place, and with a 2% player traffic rise last week, comes PartyPoker. PartyPoker found itself in deep trouble recently due to their protected table policies which almost caused players to boycott the poker room. Bwin-Party leaders managed to step in at the last minute and defuse the situation.

Of the top places, only one poker room actually managed to lose player traffic during last week; that room was PokerStars Spain. Despite the industry as a whole having grown 5% for the third consecutive week, the worlwide poker market is down almost 20% from the same time frame last year.
