Should we be worried? Also what could bring us back 2 better numbers?
If I look at the year to year pokertraffic, from the start of onlinepoker and see the numbers now its really worrying me.
More sites quit, networks quit and sometimes unfortunately sites even grab players money as we all know when they go broke.
Also some ask more rake and less value and or promo's for players it seems on top of that more running sites exclude certain countries or countries have regulation.
Normally the lows seem earlier in the year and as I cant see through 2013 on this page so the actual low this year could have been way worse then the low of 2013, I counted the peak player from yesterday thats worrying me a bit about the future of online poker ,while we even had a peak of 128k players in January 2010.
Also in retrospect PS had this number alone what we have now on total online players everywhere( I remember with milestones like 100k players at peaks)
Online poker is a dying sport. Current site promotions are money grabs designed to screw over regs. Leaderboards are exceptions. It's becoming harder and harder to win and eventually it will be nearly impossible.
