PartyPoker Takes Over Number Two Spot

PartyPoker has recaptured the number two spot for the world’s largest online poker rooms after iPoker’s reign for the past few weeks.

Both networks have been engaging in a tug-of-war for that coveted ranking since Full Tilt Poker went offline the end of June.   

The reality is that both sites have essentially the same average number of real cash players over the past week with Party trending upwards only slightly more than iPoker.

888Pokerheld onto the number 4 spot while PokerStars.it has lost some ground to Ongame, falling to number 6.

Don’t shed any tears for Stars.  They have three of the top 10 online poker rooms, including the top spot for their world brand.  PokerStars also occupies the number 7 spot with its French online poker room.

Bodog Poker has its highest rating yet despite telling Gambling911.com it had installed software that prevents traffic monitoring website PokerScout.com from monitoring the room’s traffic.  That site was ranking at number 13.  Bodog insists PokerScout is merely offering up estimates while PokerScout disputes this charge.
