iPoker Makes Cash Game Changes

In an attempt to improve the quality of their offering, iPoker has decided to reform their cash game structure from June 16 onwards.  A concrete measure that will certainly come into effect is the withdrawal of high-stake cash games and anonymous tables.

iPoker will offer a max buy-in of $1,000 to NLHE cash games and will remove the Shallow and Deep Ante tables for heads-up and full-ring games. The new structures will not be implement across the board, which is why iPoker.FR, iPoker.ES or iPoker.IT will remain unchanged.

As reported by pokerfuse, a member of the iPoker team said:

“We expect players to move up/down/sideways from niche games to main games. This result in a bigger number of active tables and more enjoyable poker experience.”

GBP tables (other than 6-max normal tables) will be removed from all the Tier 2 iPoker rooms and they too will adopt the same cash game structure. A buy-in between the ranges of 40 to 100 big blinds is expected in such games.

This latest move by the company is similar to what they adopted last year when they removed numerous table types.

Along with this, Speed Omaha, Deep Ante and Shallow tables for Pot Limit Omaha and its Hi-Lo version games will be removed from next week. There will be no changes to the Limit Hold’em, Limit Omaha Hi/Lo and all Stud Games.

Despite iPoker ranking as the 3rd in terms of online poker networks, there has been a constant decrease in the traffic numbers. The latest move by the company is an attempt to lure back players and re-start their high traffic volumes.
