Full Tilt Slips To 4th On Poker Traffic Rankings

Full Tilt Slips To 4th On Poker Traffic RankingsWhen Full Tilt Poker relaunched November last year, the site quickly rose to 2nd place on poker’s cash game traffic rankings, ahead of iPoker and PartyPoker.
Within the first week Full Tilt Poker had over 8,000 average daily cash game players, albeit aided by special introductory offers and the novelty of playing back at the site after a year and half of absence.
Nevertheless, soon after the site’s early bloom faded as it became apparent that aside from promotional incentives, other players had returned to the site only long enough to recoup their frozen funds. Now, it would seem that the poker room has suffered further declines in cash game traffic and is currently ranked a lowly 4th overall.
The perennial top poker room continues to be PokerStars with a massive 27,693 average daily cash game players, but now PartyPoker and iPoker seem to be taking it in turns to hold the 2nd and 3rd spots with a little under 4,000 cash game players apiece. Unfortunately for Full Tilt, however, its present cash game traffic average of 2,946 players is good enough only for 4th spot and equally as worrying, 888Poker is only a mere 300 players behind.
Also accounting for some of Full Tilt’s woes is increased competition from its rivals, such as iPoker which has relentlessly been adding new skins to its network. In addition, last December PartyGaming and bwin completed their merger giving an immediate boost to the new company’s real-money cash-game traffic.
Despite the bad news for Full Tilt, at least one thing in its favour is that the site still continues to be a hot spot for high-stakes action, encouraged along by its trio of sponsored high-stakes “Professionals,” Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, Tom “Durrr” Dwan and Gus Hansen.
