Black Chip Poker Moves to Winning Network; Joins America's Cardroom, True Poker 

Long Awaited News a Good Sign For Players

Black Chip Poker makes its move to the Winning Poker Network today.

Black Chip had been promising major news for multiple weeks to players, as Merge had left their cashouts out of the last payment batch. Players can now see why, the two sides were negotiating a deal that brings Black Chip to the Winning Network, joining major skins America's Cardroom and True Poker.

All Black Chip player funds will reportedly be transferred over in the move, including pending cashout.

The Winning Network, along with Revolution skin Intertops, consistently rank as the very best in payouts, with players receiving debit card payments often in less than 4 days. We'll keep a close eye on how the cashout timeframes change, if at all, with the addition of Black Chip to the network.

Overall Outlook

Expect to see some changes to the Winning Network with Black Chip's addition. The largest changes you'll see are more players on the Winning Network. Winning has grown over 50% in size in 2012, and this move will grow them even more. They are currently the 4th largest US facing network. With Merge Network's decline in traffic, the two may compete for the 3rd slot. Bodog (Bovada) and Revolution have been the largest US facing networks in the second half of 2012.
