  • Cash Game Players being restricted at VC Poker

    Monday, January 4th, 2010 by t2admin

VC Poker is part of the UK gambling firm Victor Chandler and the poker room recently made a decision that has shocked many in the poker industry. The poker room recently sent out an email to many of their players telling them that their game play is no longer welcome at the cash game tables.

Regulars to the cash game tables at VC Poker who do well at the tables. The email read:
“If you are not already aware iPoker will be implementing a new policy in the New Year which will categorize players depending upon certain criteria. The new policy will also impose penalties upon card rooms that in essence, have a high proportion of winning players in relation to losing players.

Regrettably therefore, we are being forced to restrict a number of accounts in order to comply with the new policy and to avoid penalization by iPoker and it grieves me to inform you that we have no option for the time being other than to restrict the cash game stakes at which you can play on Victor Chandler Poker.

We sincerely regret having to take this action and hope that the policy will change in the future so that you may once again enjoy playing cash games at Victor Chandler Poker. In the meantime, please accept our apologies for any inconvenience that this action will cause but know that you can still play in our tournaments and on any other of the Victor Chandler suite of products.

Yours sincerely,
Victor Chandler International”

Essentially the new rules created by the iPoker network are that their rooms will now be focusing on bringing in more causal players, which are typically the losing players. The rooms that have more winners than losers will have to take action as VC Poker has done to be following the new rules of iPoker. It also means that a rakeback will have to be taken away as well which could be detrimental, though some poker rooms operate without a rakeback an use a rewards program instead.
