Equity Poker Room Shuts Down Accounts Due to 'Growing Pains'

The newly formed online poker network Equity Poker has begun to shut down player accounts of those it deems to be “too aggressive”.

More specifically, the poker room in question is Poker Host, which recently switched over to Equity from the Merge Gaming Network. 

A message from PokerHost, posted publicly by an affected player, explains that—since EPN is a “small but growing poker network”— it cannot afford “aggressive behavior” from players.

“We are now in a network [that] focuses on having recreational poker players and you do not meet this criteria,” it reads.

But alas this is just a "temporary" policy it appears.

“[We] will be happy to hear from you in about 6 months to a year, time the we expect [sic] to be big enough to afford your activity and continue the good relationship the we have had,” reads the email.

In recent months, Equity has brought on a number of poker rooms attached to North American-facing online sportsbooks.
