Higher Stakes Tables For Lock Poker
Friday February 15,2013 : HIGHER STAKES TABLES ON REVOLUTION NETWORK CONFINED TO LOCK POKER
1/2, 2/4 and up tables segregated
According to exchanges between a Lock Poker representative and poker players on the twoplustwo poker information site, the Revolution network where Lock is the dominant skin has allowed it to segregate its higher stakes games from the rest of the network.
It appears that 1/2, 2/4 and up tables are affected in a new policy that has been quietly implemented since early February.
Lock Poker spokesman Shane Bridges confirmed several days after implementation that: "We have partitioned some of our higher stakes [tables] based on our current size and our soft poker ecology to better care for our players.”
Subsequent posts by Bridges appear to indicate that Lock's strategy is to achieve a better balance between "grinders" and casual or recreational players in order to foster a stable and healthier "poker ecology", a concept that has been extensively discussed and implemented by other networks in recent years.
Originally a part of the Merge network, Lock Poker acquired the Cake Poker Network last year; rebranding it as Revolution Poker Network and ensuring that it remained in charge and dominant in terms of management and size
