Is Party Poker Now Rigging Their Lobby?

There some pretty shocking reports coming out about Party Poker and other sites now apparently controlling what tables players have access to based on their winrate. They are basically trying to get regs to play regs and fish to play fish.

I will definitely boycott any site that does this. 

There are a few reports on some forums and this clip seems to show it in action:

  1. That's crazy if it is true. The online poker industry doesn't need another event like black friday or any other claims of criminal actions or unfairness and rigging.

  2. Poker seems to be getting shadier and shadier. Really sad

    1. I didn't think a site as big as Party would go down this route but then again I'm not shocked at anything these days

  4. Has this been tested on any other sites yet? I'd think there would be a rush to test the top 5 sites that have player pools large enough to withstand rigged lobbies.

    1. Afaik the Revolution network are going to do this too.

      Its very interesting to see the short/long term effects that this could have on the player pool. It could attract a lot more recs to Party at the loss of regs but the site would benefit. It could also go the other way with both recs/regs leaving.

      Definitely going to monitor this situation
