On the Revolution Network, Intertops has started to share more of its player pool with other skins. The Intertops poker team on 2+2 has announced that is opening up higher stakes “step by step.”
Problems at Lock Poker saw network traffic collapse last year. Lock Poker has now left the network, and the other skin which had a reputation-destroying cash out record, Juicy Stakes, is under new ownership.
In July last year, Intertops segregated all its tables at 100NL and higher. This was followed in August by a withdrawal from all network MTTs which carried a $1k or higher guarantee. As soon as Juicy Stakes came under new ownership in October, Intertops announced that it would share its player pool at stakes of $25/$50 and higher exclusively with them.
Another Revolution skin WinCake gained a new investment partner at the beginning of February and, together with the departure of Lock, appears to have prompted the Intertops comment that it sees “the overall network situation improving.”
The statement on 2+2 expresses further optimism: “I am positive about rock bottom lying behind us and we are now, slowly but surely, moving forward to where we want to be.”
Affiliate Professional Rakeback tweeted that the desegregation has already started to increase play on the network.
