SHARED LIQUIDITY, WE’RE WAITING FOR YOU0 Comments
The shared liquidity of poker between France and Spain will develop in a matter of days.
Now it seems clear.
Shortly before Christmas, DGOJ announced in an interview with Poker10 that “the most plausible scenario is to start sharing tables with France from January”. And on December 29, Juan Espinosa, General Director of Gaming, signed the resolution authorizing shared liquidity, which will allow licensed operators to offer tables and tournaments featuring players from the jurisdictions that signed the Rome Agreement. The entry into force of the resolution was pending publication in the Official State Gazette.
The Shared Liquidity Resolution Report was used by DGOJ to acknowledge the failure of the closed regulatory model and the adverse effects it has had on the sector since its establishment.
Thanks to this document, we learned that DGOJ has chosen the shared liquidity model (instead of the British open model) to better control fraud and money laundering. And we were also able to learn about the procedures that operators will have to follow to start offering their “international tables”.
Shortly afterwards, on 2 January, the French ARJEL confirmed that the French-Spanish shared liquidity would arrive in the coming weeks.
Since then, we have been waiting for the unification of markets.
The Resolution of shared liquidity has not yet been published in the BOE and no operator has sent information to its users on the implementation of the new tables.
However, there is every indication that shared liquidity will be imminent.
The opening of the .fres rooms will bring us a considerable improvement in the range of games on offer for all types of online poker. There will be many more cash players, tournaments, sits…
In the field of MTTs we can start dreaming of monthly tournaments similar to the Sunday Million, as well as the entry of a new operator such as Winamax, which will be able to compete against PokerStars, the return of PartyPoker, or the reinforcement of 888poker and iPoker.
We have high hopes for shared liquidity, as much as we want it to reach the online poker rooms.
We hope it’s soon. In the meantime, we’ll keep trying to crushing .es.
