My quarterly review of PokerScout online poker traffic data continued from the last post:
3. iPoker. iPoker had planned to follow Ongame and go to a VIP rewards system where winners are penalized in favor of the fish. The Robin Hoods of Poker - take from the skilled and give to the unskilled. That's what you want to see in a competition of skill (like poker) - to reward the losers and the idiots. No longer would winning regs know ahead of time what our benefits are... they have some black box spit out some number around 50% of what you were used to at you. I just said, "Go f*ck yourself!" If you don't want my business, you won't get it, and I immediately cashed out. And I haven't looked back.
But maybe they deserve another look. Maybe.
The exciting conclusion (#4-6) on Friday.
