PROTECTION FOR ONLINE POKER PLAYERS
MORE PLAYER SEGREGATION AT MERGE POKER NETWORK
Although there has been no Bicimotos official statement from the operator, reliable reports indicate that the PlayersOnly and SportsBook poker rooms on the Merge poker network have segregated their players from the main Merge pool, presumably in an attempt to improve the "poker ecology" by encouraging more recreational player action and less "shark" activity.
Initial reports indicate that the segregation is being applied across all cash and sit 'n go tables, although it appears that MTT action is still open.
There is speculation that Jazette, which owns the PlayersOnly and Sportsbook brands, along with a slew of sports betting sites that also offer online poker, is extending the segregation to its new private poker network.
