7 of the top 10 online poker rooms have seen declines in traffic this past week.  Overall, online poker traffic dropped 0.8 percent, according to PokerScout.com.

Full Tilt Poker saw a decline after it pulled out of the Washington state market.

According to PokerScout.com: 

Cash game traffic on the site was also weak compared to last November's FTOPS. Preliminary indications are that the Washington pullout cost Full Tilt about 3% of its traffic. As a result, the site's annual growth rate is now under 1%. Still, Full Tilt's main (.com) site maintains a worldwide market share of 19% compared to 35% for PokerStars.

PeoplesNetwork.it edged ahead of Cereus Network to take seventh place. Everest Poker slipped one notch to 20th, ceding 19th to International.it.

The competition between PartyPoker and the iPoker Network is really starting to heat up.  PartyPoker has managed to hold onto the number 3 position, but iPoker Network is averaging just 200 real cash players less than Party (3700) and its 24-hour peak was slightly higher than PartyPoker’s on Wednesday.
