Big News at Merge Poker Network

The big poker news this week is at Merge Poker Network. Merge is the home of poker rooms such as Carbon Poker and PDC Poker. And of late a whole lot more rooms.

The news story is that a number of poker rooms have jumped ship from the Cake poker network and are moving to Merge. This is absolutely great news for the network in general, and anyone that likes playing on it in particular.

Why? Because the traffic will literally explode. Ok, no it won’t rival Poker Stars in terms of players online, but it will be a big jump in relative terms. It is estimated that player numbers could go up by a multiple of six!

Of course, while this is great news for Merge, it is not so good for the Cake network. Currently, the Cake network is in tenth position in the list of the most popular online poker rooms, while Merge is down about twentieth. Those positions are most likely going to reverse in the coming months.

The change over is expected to happen in mid-April, 2010. Hopefully it will all go smoothly.
