In an unexpected move, PartyPoker eliminated all of its cash game offerings above 5/10 no limit and pot limit games, and above 30/60 in fixed limit games.
"We believe this change will improve the action at our tables and is in the best interest of the poker room as a whole."
According to the latest figures from PokerScout, cash games action at PartyPoker is down a staggering 50% compared to the same time last year. This is compared to 35% at iPoker, 22% at Ongame and 12% at PokerStars. Across all sites cash game activity is down only 16%.
