Introducing iPoker 2:  Online Poker Network Split in Two

The world’s second largest “real money” online poker network, iPoker, has split into two with the new entity being called “iPoker 2”.

So what is iPoker 2?

It is for smaller player pools and will feature mid to low stakes of No Limit Hold’em cash games.  iPoker1 will be for larger player pools.  Those on the iPoker 2 platform will  incorporate skins (independent card rooms) that have at least 6000 active customers (raking $1 or more a month) and acquiring a minimum of 850 new active players a month (raking $5 in the first 30 days).     

A statement from iPoker read:

“iPoker has decided to extend the network policy to include specific quality standards that would regulate the interaction between various card rooms. Failing to meet any of these standards will cause a separation of the card room from the network main liquidity pool.”

William Hill and Paddy Power are two of iPoker’s biggest skins.
