HEY GUYS NEED SOME HELP...I AM DOING MY DISSERTATION ON THE ONLINE GAMING INDUSTRY WITH SPECIFIC REFERENCE TO POKER.

THE PAPER CONCENTRATES ON THE U.S ONLINE BAN AND HOW THIS HAS HEAVILY AFFECTED THE POKER PLAYER LIQUIDITY ON MAJOR ONLINE SITES.

POKER PLAYER LIQUIDITY IS VITAL TO THE SUCCESS OF AN ONLINE SITE AS IT GIVES PLAYERS OF ALL TYPES AND DIFFERING LEVELS OF BANKROLLS THE LIQUIDITY FOR COMPETITION. i.e (THERE WILL ALWAYS BE DEMAND FOR A CETAIN TYPE OF GAME OR STAKE)

PLEASE ANSWER THE WEE QUESTIONAIRE BELOW WHICH WILL HELP ME IN MY RESEARCH...THANKS IN ADVANCE!!

*NOTE - THIS IS ONLY RELEVANT IF YOU WERE A MEMBER OF partypoker, pacific poker (888) OR PARADISE POKER (SPORTINGBET) PRIOR TO THE U.S BAN (OCTOBER) - AND ONLY RELEVANT TO NON-U.S PLAYERS.

THE REASON FOR THE QUESTIONAIRE IS TO ATTEMPT TO PROVE THAT THESE ABOVE MENTIONED SITES NOT ONLY LOST U.S PLAYERS BUT ALSO NON-U.S PLAYERS, POSSIBLY TO OTHER SITES SUCH AS FULLTILT AND pokerstars WHOM CONTINUED TO ACCEPT US PLAYERS.

1) WHICH SITE DID/DO YOU PLAY AT PRIOR TO U.S BAN?

A) PARTYPOKER
B) PACIFIC POKER (888)
C) PARADISE POKER (SPORTINGBET)


2) DO YOU STILL PLAY AT THIS SITE (POST U.S BAN)?

A) YES I STILL PLAY THIS SITE ALL THE TIME
B) AFTER U.S BAN I PLAY THIS SITE LESS THAN I DID PREVIOUSLY
C) I NOW PLAY AT ANOTHER SITE THE MAJORITY OF THE TIME
D) I NEVER PLAY THIS SITE ANYMORE


3) IF YOU ANSWERED B) C) OR D) ABOVE, THEN WHICH SITE HAVE YOU MOVED TO OR DEVOTED MORE OF YOUR TIME TO?

A) FULL TILT
B) ULTIMATE BET
C) POKERSTARS
D) OTHER SITE


4) WHAT WAS YOUR MAIN REASON FOR SWITCHING SITES?

A) POKER PLAYER LIQUIDITY i.e (to follow U.S players)
B) SOME OTHER REASON (PLESE NOTE THE REASON)

THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO READ AND HOPEFULLY ANSWER THE QUESTIONAIRE,

MARK

Well I never played any of those sites before the ban so I can't answer your questions.

I do have a question for you though.

When you present your dissertation, are you going to scream at those people too?

*I never play at party anymore.

*I now play at full tilt and pokerstars (mostly Tilt).

*I switched because I was banned.

I've never played at any of these sites. Something else to consider. How has the ban helped the sites that still allow US players.
