Italy may begin sharing poker liquidity in May

According to local media, Italy may enter the newly launched shared online poker network in May. Italian players will be able, at first, to play against peers from other countries in tournaments and sit’n’gos, while shared cash game tables will become available at a later stage.

France and Spain gave the official start of the shared liquidity scheme last month, when first shared Franco-Spanish tables went live. PokerStars was the first operator to receive the necessary license to operate shared poker tables.

According to PokerScout data, PokerStars Europe seems to be off to a good start. Until now, there are 21,552 players online, with 1,616 cash game players and a 24-hour peak of 3,268 cash game players.

It was last summer when the online gambling regulators of France, Spain, Italy, and Portugal signed the shared liquidity project. Like Italy, Portugal is too yet to launch shared poker tables. According to recent reports, the country is well into the final stages of preparations and is likely to join the poker network in the second quarter of the year.
