Full Tilt and Poker Stars Rapidly Losing Market Share

Victory Poker Abandons US Market
Things aren't looking good for the "Big Three" as they continue to lose players to those sites still accepting US business.

The latest report from shows PokerStars’ traffic down 25% since Friday, with Full Tilt  dropping by 48% and Absolute down by 39%. Bodog and Cake Poker are still servicing US customers and have shown increases of 26% and 19% respectively.

In a related story, Victory Poker announced earlier today that they were pulling the plug on American poker players, stating that they  "Don’t want to mess with the U.S. government, they’re angry at the ‘Big Three’ for a reason.”

Makes you wonder if Bodog and Cake are in it for the long haul. The next few months should be interesting.

Till next time, win the flips.
