A look at player traffic in the regulated market in New Jersey finds that PokerScout has made a proper adjustment and is now listing traffic totals that reflect the recent partial merger between 888poker and WSOP.com.As most are aware, those sites began combining player pools in select games in mid-January, resulting in enhanced action at the tables. As of this writing, the merger between 888’s All American Poker Network and WSOP.com averages 260 cash players. That collaboration has allowed WSOP/888 NJ to outdistance player traffic at the Party Borgata Network by roughly a 3 to 2 margin. Party Borgata, made up of BorgataPoker.com and PartyPoker.com, currently enjoys a seven-day average of 170 ring game players. PokerScout.com’s latest report indicates that WSOP/888 NJ manages to reach a daily peak in traffic “that is 25% higher than the pre-merger total.” But to keep things in perspective, off-peak player traffic may sometimes be less than previous numbers. Although traffic is not fully shared between the two sites, as only lower stakes cash games and certain tournaments are currently pooled, the poker tables shared make up almost two-thirds of ring game traffic for the new “network.”
