(PRWEB) November 15, 2005 –
Whichpoker.com – a leading poker and information statistics provider – released figures showing Empire Poker is still a very popular choice for online poker players. This news comes despite repeated profit warnings and the specter of takeover by PartyGaming.
For the week ending October 30, 2005, Whichpoker.com measured a peak of 5,212 active real money players on Empire Poker, the site operated by Empire Online. Whichpoker.com uses advanced statistics software to generate live figures updated every ten minutes throughout the day.
Empire Poker managed an average 1,701 active real-money ring-game players during the entire week. The average number of tournament players online at any given time was 817, making the average total of active real money players an impressive 2,518.
This player traffic news will come as some consolation to Empire Online. The week has been dominated by headlines of an impending takeover by PartyGaming, which operates PartyPoker.com – the world’s biggest online poker site. Empire Poker has suffered a drop in profits since PartyGaming ‘shed its skins,’ one of which was Empire Poker. This streamlining cut off Empire Poker players from the thousands of players on PartyPoker.com.
Whichpoker.com also provides figures and reviews for all the world’s largest poker rooms and is a respected source of accurate online poker information. At any moment the site provides data for the number of real-money players on each online poker room, detailing which games are ongoing and giving accurate denominations for tournaments and cash games. In addition Whichpoker.com gives up-to-the-minute tournament listings, specifying where to go and when to be there to take part in upcoming tournaments.
"We aim to provide players with all the relevant information to ensure they find the right tournament, whether it's a Free Roll poker tournament, Guaranteed Pot poker tournament or Qualifier and Satellite tournaments. There are so many poker rooms evolving—our site has made life easier for poker players," said Graham Edmond of Whichpoker.com.
