PokerHost Moves to Equity Poker Network: Leaves Merge Gaming, the online poker arm of sports betting website SBG Global, will be leaving the Merge Gaming Network and moving to the newly formed Equity Poker Network, it was revealed on Wednesday.

Equity Poker is currently home to the online poker arms of Heritage and 5Dimes sportsbooks.

It was not immediately clear why PokerHost was leaving Merge.  They were one of the last remaining independent sites to reside on Merge outside of the online poker family and Carbon, considered the flagship site of Merge. Last year, over a dozen poker rooms either left the network or were swallowed up by Carbon.

Equity is approximately one quarter the size of North America’s second largest Internet poker network, Winning Poker, according to traffic monitoring website
