Why do we care which are the biggest poker sites? For any serious player,
the amount of traffic a poker site gets is one of the most important factors in choosing where
to play. The sites with the most players offer the best game selection, allowing the player
to hunt for the best game conditions 24 hours a day. The largest poker sites are also immensely
profitable and (for the most part) smoothly run, reducing concerns about stability and viability.

of the World Series of Poker.
