Ivey League, the poker training website created by Phil Ivey, announced that it will no longer be uploading video training content as from May 1, 2017. The “current state of online poker” was pointed as the reason for the decision, although no further explanation was given as to what the current state of online poker meant.
Ivey League was launched in early 2014 with poker pro/entrepreneur Phil Ivey being the mastermind behind it. News spread in 2013 that Ivey had purchased poker website Leggo Poker aiming to turn it into a training site.
Existing video content on Ivey League will remain accessible as yearly subscribers are refunded. Every player who has paid for a monthly subscription will be able to cancel it at any time, as written on the poker training website.
Various training videos have been uploaded on Ivey League for the past three years, with those containing the nuts and bolts of poker. They also contained information on how one could improve their playing style and composure while playing poker. The content on the site has covered different poker games, including widespread variants like No-Limit, Hold’em and Pot-Limit Omaha as well as mixed games formats.
Current State of Online Poker
Online Poker has been going through fundamental changes since its explosion back in 2003. Not that the all-time casino game has lost its charm, no. The Internet poker industry has grown to be a tight one of late, with other famous types of casino games emerging.
Ruling and overruling is also another reason why the state of online pokies is currently blurred. There are now jurisdictions, globally, that have been hurting online poker-lovers’ industry, thereby thrashing its profitability. Let alone, countries such as Australia that have made it quite impossible for local online casino players to gamble in a regulated environment.
One may say the state of online pokies is currently uncertain and difficult to tell where it’s headed to. However, we at Kiwi Casinos will do all the best we can to keep our Kiwis in the loop with the latest adjustments with regards to online pokies.
