SHARED LIQUIDITY AND ITS OPPORTUNITIES FOR MTTS AND CASH GAME PLAYERS
We are already in the liquidity shared with France. At last.
In addition, news has leaked today that .com or .eu players, who are not in regulated countries, will also be able to play at PokerStars .com’s international tables.
The opening has already led to a considerable increase in traffic in almost all the modalities. The warranties of the multi-table tournaments have soared and PS has already got into their lobby a series that will be called FRESH, will have 5 million euros in guaranteed prizes and a Main Event that will be like a Sunday Million.
The unification of the French and Spanish regulated markets at the cash desks has also been very noticeable. Their traffic has doubled and although new regs have arrived from the north of the Pyrenees, many French recreational tables have also been set up, loaded with fresh money.
Shared liquidity will bring new prospects of success to cash players. And if the consequences are already good, imagine what it might be like when others operators come on the scene. Winamax is about to arrive and will be competing against the Red Peak Room. And also
888poker, PartyPoker and iPoker will arrive sooner or later. PokerStars can now be prepared, because these rooms will be bursting with new promotions and something basic for cash players, the rakeback.
Right now, the PS chests system is a wreck. The room has shrunk in a brutal way the return to the players of the rakeback. If this doesn’t change, competition will take a good part of the cash game players, with a more balanced offer.
In short, the shared liquidity will bring us many advantages: tournaments with monstrous guaranteed, cash tables with more traffic and more fresh fish, and many offers and promotions, which they’ll end up breaking with the hegemonic power of the Red Spike Room.
All we can do for now is wait.
