      Hi, Acespeci,
      I'm not sure that such information is even publicly available.

      As far as I have been able to glean, the following are on iPoker 2

      Bet365
      Paddy Power
      Poker770
      Titan
      William Hill

      So everyone else is iPoker 1

      This list may be outdated, rooms may change tier ( I think )

      There is nothing on the iPoker site that mentioned tiers at all.
      So I don't even know all of the differences between the two.

      Regards,
      --VS

      This is the last official news piece about the iPoker Tiers. I'm not sure if they are still the same right now but this is the best I can offer you Acespeci :)

      From the above link it would appear Mansion is on the lower tier.


      Regards,
      Gary.

      I'm quite sure Coral Poker has been in the upper tier since May as well.

      However, I'm pretty certain that Mansion Poker is indeed on the lower tier.

      "Upper" and "Lower" paint a picture of "better" and "not so good"

      I think that Tier 1 contains the BIGGER rooms, and Tier 2 the smaller ones.

      When you read the article it is apparent that:
        Only some games (cash games mainly) are segregated at all
        Segregations is by size, not player ability per se.

      That being said, you would expect more recreational players in the larger sized rooms (Tier 1).

      When I first started playing on WH, after playing on 770 for a few months, I noticed immediately that I had 2K hands on some players, and I had only 100 hands on WH myself.

      That's true. The tiering is based on traffic, not player quality.

      So maybe "upper" and "lower" aren't the best terms to use. But since there doesn't seem to be any official names for the tiers it's a bit annoying to talk about. Some people say tier 1 is the one with the smaller rooms, some say it's the other way around.

      So much confusion :facepalm:

      Yeah, there's a lot of players that play on a ton of different iPoker rooms. I've noticed that as well. The guy I'm doing sweat sessions with plays on William Hill while I play on 770, and we both recognize a ton of the same regs while watching each other.

      It's quite weird in one way, really.
