One year ago the poker industry saw the birth of a new US friendly site as well as network, as the Equity Poker Network was launched with their flagship site Full Flush Poker, which is owned and run by the network.
At the time when Full Flush launched, there was a minor crisis in the US in regards to poker rooms. Lock Poker still hadn't paid anyone, Merge had shut down most of its rooms and left many states, Winning Poker Network were also leaving states and Bovada was unpopular due to its anonymous tables.
While some may have thought this would affect Full Flush in a bad way, as the market was saturating more than ever, it was the exact opposite for Full Flush and EPN. They managed to establish massive growth from day one and has with their unique promotions managed to take a large chunk of the US market, as well as the Rest-of-world (ROW) markets.
The Equity Poker Network is currently listed 31st in Pokerscout, just after the Winning Poker Network. The two networks has almost identical cash game traffic numbers, but the WPN has more players in their tournament schedule. Both are still bigger than the regulated markets in the US traffic wise.
To mark their birthday, Full Flush Poker will be hosting a $50,000 guaranteed on November 9th at 5pm ET. Players can qualify cheaply through satellites or pay the $38,5 buy-in directly. Furthermore players will also have the chance to participate in a $10,000 freeroll.
“Our $10K MEMBER FREEROLL and the BIRTHDAY BASH $50K GTD will reward as many of our regulars as possible, and that’s our main objective in celebrating our first anniversary,” said a Full Flush Poker Spokesperson.
“We want to thank every single player who has continued to enjoy our card room and contributed to FFP’s growing success over the past 12 months, and the best way we know how, is by giving them ways to earn free cash, and providing more opportunities to win more money.” He added.
