Victory Poker Sucks But News Continues

Despite my despise of Victory poker and the owners/poker pros I’m obligated to publish news for anyone interested about the poker website.

If we are to heed the speculation in the online poker world in recent days, Victory Poker may soon be moving to the Cake Poker Network. Unidentified sources were quoted as saying that the move could come about as early as next month.

The industry got wind of the news in a rather roundabout way. A reliable source apparently heard Dan Fleyshman, owner of Victory Poker (as well as Who’s Your Daddy energy beverage company), boast that he was due to make a major announcement regarding the future of Victory Poker on his birthday in September.

CalvinAyre.com carried a story saying that Fleyshman would be making ‘an exciting Victory Poker announcement’ at his birthday party in London September 1st. Dan has been spending an usually large amount of time in Vancouver over the past month, and two major poker networks – Cake and Merge – have offices in Vancouver.”

So who is Victory Poker and where is this site positioned in the grand scheme of things?

The site launched at the Hard Rock Café in Vegas earlier this year in a dazzling event that had many of the top echelon of the poker world attending.

The poker room debuted on – and is currently working off – the Everleaf network, which merged with UPN to carry Victory Poker. The network currently incorporates Minted Poker, Poker4Ever, Everleaf Poker, as well as Victory Poker.

It is speculated that that Victory Poker is keen to move away from Everleaf in search of greater liquidity for its players.

PokerScout ranks the Everleaf Network as 22nd in terms of real money ring game traffic, while the Cake Poker Network is ranked 16th.

Victory Poker, for its part, is particularly pro-player and uses this strategy in its high profile marketing campaigns. So called Professionals such as Antonio Esfandiari are part of Victory’s team of sponsored players, as well as Lee Markholt and Paul Wasicka.
