(US).- With the aim to get more players in New Jersey, both WSOP and 888Poker have combined forces to share players and thus add more liquidity to both competitions and cash games online. The sharing of players by both companies will start today, yet both sites will still maintain their VIP and reward programs separately.

ver since the state opened up to online poker, numbers have been disappointing and this move hopefully offers players more competition within tournaments. Online companies were expecting a boom in New Jersey with predicted revenues of US$ 1 billion in the first year of operation, but those estimates fell well short of the actual US$ 100 million generated and so online poker companies will look further into sharing players following the move by 888Poker and WSOP.

“Shared liquidity will help create a better player experience that we hope will attract a diversity of players and begin to bring poker to a broader audience once again,” said David Licht, CEO of the All American Poker Network, the joint venture between 888 Holdings and Avenue Capital.
