The long-independent Everest Poker has decided to join up with iPoker.
According to PokerScout.com, EverestPoker.com is the 23rd largest online poker competitor in the industry, with a seven day average of 570 cash game players. Its French site, EverestPoker.fr, is actually doing better, sitting in 15th with a seven day average of 650 cash game players.
This comes just days before the iPoker Network is to split into two. In an attempt to get its member poker rooms to attract profitable customers, the network will move a select few of its skins to form an upper tier, or “iPoker 2,” while the rest will have to remain on the old network and hope to meet the requirements for inclusion. Those requirements: have a minimum of 6,000 active players per month as well as add least 850 new players per month, each of whom must contribute at least $5 in rake or tournament fees. Other factors, such as deposit to cashout ratios, will also be evaluated.
