iPoker Network Details First iPOPS Success

The iPoker Network — which includes popular online poker sites like William Hill, Titan Poker and more — has just concluded the first edition of its iPoker Online Poker Series (iPOPS). iPOPS was deemed a massive success by its organizers, making it likely that a sequel could be in the works for sometime in the future.

More than 60,000 international poker players flocked to iPoker Network sites to compete in the new series and helped to contribute to just how well the events came off. Over one million dollars was handed out over four events. These included iPOPS kick-off no-limit hold’em six-maximum tournament (which came with a $200,000 prize pool) and its follow-up, a $150,000 pot no-limit hold’em turbo series. The other iPOPS tournament handed out $500,000 to 3,000 no-limit competitors and then assembled the highest ranking players into a top 27. These winners will soon officially end iPOPS (and take home the remaining prize pool) at a live event taking place at Prague’s Ambassador Casino on 12th December.

With the first iPOPS drawing such an enormous crowd — and paying out such impressive amounts — it seems extremely likely that we’ll be hearing about a second edition from iPoker Network soon enough. A statement detailed how the iPoker Online Poker Series was “a huge success for the network”, attributing some of this popularity to it giving “players the chance to win massive cash prizes [for] exceptionally low buy-ins.”

iPoker Network’s iPoker Online Poker Series Launches Qualifiers

Poker fans looking forward to the iPoker Network’s iPoker Online Poker Series (iPOPS) will be excited to learn that a series of satellite qualifiers has just launched through the Network’s gaming websites. The iPOPS, a collection of four internet events set to run from 28th November to 4th December, is one of the season’s most anticipated series and iPoker has found a way to get talented players involved for buy-in amounts as low as ten cents.

The iPoker Network includes a number of popular gaming platforms like Titan Poker and William Hill. These sites, and others, are kicking off satellite qualifiers meant to help promote the quickly approaching iPOPS. iPoker members will be able to take part in satellites running three times a week with main event packages as rewards along with weekly mega satellites that grant entrance to iPOPS events one and four. Some winners will be able to bypass the usual iPOPS tournament ladders and use their performance in the qualifiers to receive packages to the series’ finale in Prague. That prize package, just like the one awarded to the highest ranked iPOPS finishers, will provide satellite champions with their €770 iPOPS main event buy-in, accommodations and extra cash.

The iPoker Online Poker Series will take a small break from its internet tournaments after its top 27 competitors have been decided. These players will receive luxury accommodations and spending money before resuming the iPOPS less than a week later for a final showdown at Prague’s Corinthia Hotel.

William Hill Move to iPoker Network

Online gambling giant, William Hill has announced an imminent move to the similarly popular, iPoker Network. Through a surprising partnership with software giant, Playtech, William Hill is now set to venture forward into a period of increased concentration into the field of online poker.

The process of joining up with Playtech has resulted in the birth of William Hill Online, a brand new client for fans of the popular gaming company. William Hill has left Cryptologic behind (to currently suffering traffic ratings) and will now attempt to maneuver some of their users over to the new poker tables. While the company enjoys enormous success as a bookkeeping and sports betting agency, poker represents a fairly new field of the online gambling trade for them to try their hand at. iPoker expect a similar increase in business as their service becomes flooded with brand new users who may be willing to follow William Hill more enthusiastically by way of their improved poker networking.

Players who enjoy William Hill’s other offerings will surely enjoy the transition, especially as the poker site grows through affiliation with the iPoker Network. The company should be able to profit immensely from the joint venture between themselves, Playtech and the iPoker Network, competing with other premier poker sites as a level opponent.
