So right now on Eurobet there are 8,301 players grinding it out. I'm wondering how many of these are rakeback players.
At the same time, there are 34,822 people playing on Party Poker right now.
The reason: Party yesterday separated itself from its "skins," or sister sites such as Eurobet. You can't play with its players if you're playing on a skin.
Ugh. The future is right now. Mark had mentioned this day might come, that Party would cut its ties with its skins, but I didn't expect it to happen so soon.
Here's what PartyPoker posted on 2+2:
Historically, PartyPoker players have shared the same poker-only system with players from each of the Group’s four white label poker clients or “skins” (being Empire Poker, Coral Eurobet, Multipoker and Intertops). Following today’s move, PartyPoker players will now play on their own private tables and benefit from a number of new and exciting products that are exclusive to the new platform.
It'll be interesting to see what happens. I guess the overall impact for me won't be that dramatic, as I have a pretty much "diversified whoring platform," getting bonuses from many different sites.
But now that I'm playing $10/20, I was eagerly awaiting the rake back payment for this month!
Just another reminder of the short-term window we have to enjoy the softness of poker right now and to scoop up as much of it as we can!
