The new GG Poker Network: 6+ Hold'em, hand histories, and more

The latest software update rolled out by GG Poker Network in November was not limited to the introduction of 6+ Hold'em and rebranding the high stakes tournaments. There were several significant changes, and the most crucial one is the introduction of a ring game table cap of four. In this article, we discuss all the GG Poker Network improvements and how those affected cash games traffic.

The new GG Poker Network: 6+ Hold'em, hand histories, and more

GG Poker Network launched 6+ Hold'em

Thanks to the GG Poker Network public roadmap, we already knew many details about the 6+ Hold'em launch and the welcome promotions that started yesterday.

6+ Hold'em tables now have a separate tab (Short Deck) just like all other cash games on the lobby; high stakes tables were added under the VIP tab.

The main novelty is the launch of high roller tables with a ¥2,000 ante (about $284), and just a few hours after being added, we found several players testing the new VIP 6+ Hold'em tables.

The details about the Flush Jackpot promotion were also revealed:

  • Prize fund: for every 30 antes, one is assigned to the jackpot fund;
  • Payout: the player receives 10% of the jackpot for getting a flush or better.

The winning hand only counts towards the promotion if both hole cards are used and if the player paid at least 15 antes in the pot.

Blade Series rebranded to High Roller Series

The GG Poker Network high roller tournaments were also updated yesterday; now, instead of Blade Series, who was launched in January, all events with buy-ins from $200 are combined under the name "High Rollers."

The $25,000 Blade tournaments have been under the scrutiny of the poker community. A few players won a lost six-figures sum, then the $25k tournament became private, and sadly those tournaments are no longer available in the lobby. Now the highest buy-in High Roller event is the Sunday $2,500.

GG Poker Network unveils a new cash games traffic structure

Yesterday GG Poker Network implemented many new features to cash games:

  • Cash games are now limited to 4 tables (of each poke format);
  • The $100,000 Weekly Race for fast-fold poker (Rush & Cash) players got extended for another month.

Due to these changes, the cash games traffic was affected as follows:

NLH Traffic:

Stake/Time 16:00 18:00 20:00 22:00 24:00
NL5 14 16 14 13 11
NL10 13 13 8 10 13
NL25 15 14 9 10 7
NL50 11 11 10 4 7
NL100 10 10 9 5 5
NL200 9 8 8 4 5
NL500 1 4 4 3 3
NL1K 5 4 5 4 3

PLO Traffic:

Stake/Time 16:00 18:00 20:00 22:00 24:00
PLO10 10 9 11 11 8
PLO25 13 6 8 10 7
PLO50 5 9 7 8 8
PLO100 7 10 10 8 8
PLO200 3 6 6 6 4
PLO500 7 7 3 6 3
PLO1K-2K 2 2 1 1 1

Rush & Cash Traffic:

Stake/Time 16:00 18:00 20:00 22:00 24:00
NL2 243 245 221 218 185
NL10 161 192 199 194 179
NL50 120 149 180 146 124
NL200 68 62 61 70 76

6+ Hold'em Traffic:

Stake/Time 16:00 18:00 20:00 22:00 24:00
¥1 ($0,14) 23 25 19 24 21
¥5 ($0,7) 11 12 11 13 9
¥20 ($2,8) 10 8 10 4 2
¥50 ($7) 3 3 2 6 3

AoF Traffic:

Stake/Time 16:00 18:00 20:00 22:00 24:00
NL25 7 10 8 7 11
NL100 4 7 9 6 6
NL400 3 4 4 4 3
NL1K 2 1 1 2 2
  • During the day, 1-3 VIP tables (high stakes) can be spotted in the lobby.

To compare this data, we took information from our previous traffic overview made during the fall.

The main "victim" of the latest changes were the 6-max NLH tables, where we spotted an overall traffic decrease of 30%.

Some players went to 6+ Hold'em (mainly low stakes) and others to Rush & Cash (mid-stakes), because now on a weekday, the number of connections on NL10–NL100 is much better.

GG Poker Network launch a downloadable hand history

One of the most expected novelties was the possibility to download hand histories. To access this option, players need to visit "PokerCraft" and choose the "Game History" tab under each poker format. A new button allows downloading your game history in a plain text format.

Unfortunately, the GG Poker Network hand history format is not supported by trackers.

Random characters replace the opponents' nicknames, and the player is named "Hero." The villain's hole cards are not visible. In short, it makes no sense to use this option right now; it's better to use the same option in PokerCraft that includes graphics and the real opponents' nicknames.

As far as we know, GG Poker Network is not planning any significant change for the last month of the year, but the seasonal peak of traffic had just begun, so Good Game probably launches a few promotions to attract more players.
