Last week the online poker industry witnessed another 3 percent drop in traffic.

Nine of the top ten networks saw a drop.  Merge Poker was the lone exception, seeing a 4 percent increase in traffic.  That network is supposed to begin allowing new US registrants any day now.

Bodog Poker and Cake Poker, both of which accept US customers, enjoyed modest gains as well, “indicating a general resurgence for US-facing sites,” according to PokerScout.com.

Cake has seen an increase of more than 200 average weekly “real cash” players over the past month while Bodog hit the 1000 average weekly “real cash” player mark for the first time in its history.  Bodog Poker’s traffic is up 70 percent on the year.
