In closing, it is worth noting that the iPoker network has the intention to adopt a new policy of segregation. She explained: "iPoker rooms that will have their players separated from the rest of the player base will be determined by a scoring system. […] The collection of data used in the rating system began on July 1. Sanctions against these halls that do not meet their quotas are planned to start on 1 September".
Here it comes to implement a system of segregation of the players where the operators meet certain criteria will have exclusive tables, that are not shared on the rest of the network.
