888poker and WSOP.com to share player liquidity in New Jersey

WSOP.com and 888poker.com, two of the leading online poker sites in New Jersey, start sharing player pool

It’s been a fairly slow start to online poker’s new legal life in the US, but things could be about to heat up as WSOP.com and 888poker.com have announced they’ll be sharing their player pools across micro and low-stakes cash games and certain tournaments. This means players will immediately start benefiting from increased prize pools and a greater number of players at the cash tables. Each site will continue to maintain its individual reward and VIP programs, and players will earn points towards these programs only when they play on the specific site.

‘This is an excellent step forward for us and should help in building a larger audience and player base for online poker in New Jersey,’ said David Licht, CEO of the All American Poker Network (AAPN). ‘Shared liquidity will help create a better player experience, we hope will attract a diversity of players and begin to bring poker to a broader audience once again.’

‘It is important we continue to experiment and look for new ways to create stickiness,’ said WSOP.com Director of Online Poker Bill Rini. ‘Customers used to playing on our site will not notice anything different, except more robust action and bigger prize pools. We also hope this will help expand the market by offering more variety.’

The following MTTs will be available on a daily and weekly basis on 888poker.com and WSOP.com in New Jersey:

  • $5,000 Nightly – 9pm EST
  • $10,000 Nightly – 7pm EST
  • $10,000 Sunday – 8pm EST
  • $25,000 Sunday – 3pm EST

The cash games sharing liquidity are:

  • No-limit hold’em tables: stakes up to $0.25/$0.50
  • Limit hold’em tables: stakes up to $0.50/$1.00
  • All sit-and-gos up to $5

The new daily guaranteed tournaments and shared liquidity cash games are running now, and you can access the games from either site.
