J88 Poker cash games traffic

Like many other sites, J88Poker experienced a traffic boom in 2020:


NL1K$ 1


PLO1K$ 1

There is no significant difference in the number of tables between the Asian prime time and other timezones, and grinders from America (USA, Argentina, Brazil) play on the site. 

The Omaha traffic has almost tripled in one year. The highest stakes played are NLH/PLO $5/$10, and some private tables can be spotted in the lobby.

These are indicators of the growing popularity of the poker room outside Asia, which is excellent news for grinders looking for new sites to play with soft lineups.
