Are Full Tilt Poker Still One Of The Best Places To Play Cash Game Poker?

Written By: Kimberley | March 21, 2013 | Posted In Poker News

Over the last two years playing poker online in America is something that many people found virtually impossible to do because of the implications of ‘Black Friday’. Full Tilt Poker was just one of the many poker rooms to suffer, but they made a successful comeback and reopened their doors to the paying public on Tuesday 6th November 2012, and immediately moved up the ranks to be the second busiest poker room in the world, a position they held before Black Friday.

It is now just over four months since Full Tilt Poker reopened, and while things are still going well, they are not going as well as expected according to the online poker traffic website PokerScout.com. This morning though, 21st March 2013, figures on Poker Scout’s website reveal that PokerStars are still way out front with an average of 23,600 cash players playing over a seven day period, with a 24 hour peak number of 40,563.

Full Tilt Poker currently find themselves in fourth place with a seven day average of just 3,050 cash game players and a 24 hour peak of 5,240, considerably lower than the figures released in November when they relaunched. The figures in November were more than double of what they are now, 6,700 cash game players compared to today’s number of 3,050.

Full Tilt Poker sit behind both PartyPoker and iPoker, with 888Poker completing the top five, though all four are separated by less than 1,000 players on the seven day average. PartyPoker are second with 3,300, iPoker are third with 3,200, then come Full Tilt with 3,050 and 888Poker complete the top five with a seven day average of 2,450 cash game players.

PartyPoker and iPoker increased their traffic significantly and will be buoyed by the latest figures, though both of them have undergone a major expansion since November hence why their figures are on the rise, and 888Poker are a company on the up it seems after only last week announcing record profits across all of their platforms.

As the old Mark Twain saying goes there are “Lies, damned lies, and statistics,” so you can make your own mind up on today’s numbers because that is all they are, or are they?
