Capitalizing on a leaderboard race promotion called PokerMasters, Adjarabet has moved into third place in cash game player traffic.
The latest tallies from PokerScout reveal that Adjarabet has booted the iPoker Network down to fourth place, while the Georgia-based poker room has settled in nicely behind industry leader PokerStars and runner-up 888Poker.
Adjarabet currently averages 1,800 cash game players, with the seven-day averages of PokerStars and 888Poker at 18,500 and 2,400, respectively. The iPoker Network clocks in with 1,700 ring game players, nudging out the 1,600 of both PartyPoker and Full Tilt.
The PokerMasters promotion at Adjarabet is focused primarily on players earning points and climbing weekly leaderboards. There is also a final leaderboard race that encompasses all five of the weekly contests.
The promo employs gamification by requiring players to complete a variety of tasks. Those tasks run the gamut of winning a hand from the small blind to getting dealt pocket pairs four hands in a row at the same table. The degree of difficulty of each task determines how many points are awarded upon successfully completing any one of over a dozen missions.
While the PokerMaster tasks can be best accomplished by multi-tabling and increasing the odds of say, getting dealt pocket kings or aces, the tasks are not weighted in favor of high stakes players. This may be a major reason for the promotion’s success, as recreational players can also find their way onto the leaderboards.
PokerMasters has been running for three weeks and has two weeks remaining before concluding on November 16. Adjarabet began its ascent up the worldwide rankings even before PokerMasters got underway thanks to a previous promo.
