Dominik Kofert Where is this money going to come from? VideoDer Deutsche WSOP Bracelet Gewinner Dominik Nitsche The company is now so Baron Samedi that they have the ability to provide instant success for new poker rooms by sending them just a small percentage of their traffic. Initially we didn't really plan for any expansion but once we saw the concept worked then we thought about expanding and it seemed the next logical step. You can see that the distance in Gaming Zitate quality and liquidity between the top operators like PokerStars and everybody else is very big. pdstext.com CEO Dominik 'Korn' Kofert shares his views on how poker rooms should be attracting new recreational players to the tables, if they are to sustain themselves going forward. It is now a well understood fact in the poker industry that attracting and retaining recreational players is key to a poker room's success. Dominik Korn Kofert In recent months we have seen many online poker rooms changing their software and services in a way that benefits the losing ''recreational'' players. Every dollar raked by a poker room, or won by a winning player, has been deposited and lost by a recreational player first. Yesterday it was announced that Dominik Kofert had left etruvian – the former group behind pdstext.com – after selling his shares to co-founder Enrique Guzman in a blind-bid auction. A C-level management cull ensued. "Another first-timer on this list, Dominik Kofert is the man behind the affiliate-driven pdstext.com In the site became one of the leaders in not only poker strategy articles and videos but poker news and continues to be the world’s most popular poker content site – even more popular than pdstext.com". Mike O'Donnell meets Dominik Kofert, CEO of PokerStrategy, a man described by some as the most powerful man in poker. From humble beginnings his site has become a gaming industry giant. So how did he do it and what's next for this most mighty of super-affiliates?.
He helped rekindle many dreams of success and brought many players, old and new, to the tables. This list tried to name the people from different aspects of the industry.
Clearly, some other pros, like Phil Ivey or Patrik Antonius would also find their place here, for similar reasons like Tom Dwan.
There are also some other poker CEOs as well as political figures whose contributions to the industry are not negligible. It is, however, nearly impossible to mention all these people in a single article.
This selection, while somewhat subjective, represents a list of names that had a lasting influence, both positive and negative, on the online poker industry.
Ivan first started playing poker in and played professionally from He holds a BA in English language and literature.
We all know about the trending feature on Twitter, we all have news sites we check daily and most of us know the zeitgeist of the day. Which in a way makes it even more important to be first through the door when a new trend appears.
Jaime Staples and Jason Somerville managed to get sponsorship from PokerStars because of their early adoption of Twitch. Likewise Doug Polk has become a megastar, and Joe Ingram has become a cult star, because of their early embrace of YouTube , which everyone is now trying to get in on.
Few people even bother trying to enter the live reporting game these days, because PokerNews established themselves as the place to go for that very early.
There are exceptions all the time, of course, but getting in early is always a benefit. Last month I wrote a blog post about what I felt the International Stadiums Poker Tour did wrong from a marketing perspective.
I also wrote about the concept of newsjacking. Today, over at PokerStrategy. This year I was asked to be one of the 50 panelists to nominate people into the Bluff Power 20 — an industry listing of the most influential people in poker.
The purpose of the panel is to pick inclusions based on how you see the industry, not how you think others will see it. Probably the first thing to call out on my list is I clearly missed the point when it came to the importance of Preet Bharara this year.
Other than that, you can see I have put more emphasis on poker players and media figures, than US politicians.
I think I made a mistake including Tom Dwan. I wanted to include an influential online player, and he seemed to fit the bill, especially after how he well came out after the FTP scandal.
Gus Hansen for the same reason, he was one of the few big FTP names who came out of the scandal with the respect and gratitude of the players.
In hindsight, maybe I would have took Dwan out, moved everyone up the list, and I might have sneaked Alexandre Dreyfus in at number 20, because he seems to be involved in everything at the moment.
I am shocked, totally shocked, that so many of my peers voted for Antonio Esfandiari. That is the only inclusion I truly disagree with.
Yes he won the biggest tournament prize of all time, but everyone and their dog knows it was a basically a man SNG which completely distorted the poker money rankings, and that Antonio was playing for a fraction of his own action.
Expanding its ability to provide them with more customers is a rational extension of its marketing services which are already extensive.
At a 2x earnings multiple, the price Playtech is paying seems extremely low. The global affiliate marketing business has become much tougher in recent years, especially in poker, as sites switch away from discriminatory rakeback models.
Yes, in in principle, there is a correlation between how skilled a player is and how much rake and profits for himself he actually generates. It can actually be a nice win-win situation, in that instance.
Warren : Since launching in , how many real money players has Poker Strategy generated? Warren : Yes, definitely. How about on a monthly basis?
Using an average of the last couple of months, what would you say the number is? It kind of depends, but 30, is probably the right number.
In some instances, we do know. It depends on the poker room. Give or take, first time depositors I would say around to a month, roughly speaking.
How does Poker Strategy acquire most of its new traffic and new customers coming into the site? Dominik : Well, it is largely viral.
Our main source of traffic is clearly existing customers recommending other people to join our community. That is by far the most important acquisition channel for us.
Now, we do try to incentivize that by having a Tell a Friend program where if you refer somebody to us you can get a small CPA for that.
In a nutshell, the answer is virality. Warren : You do have a paid referral program for players who refer other players, correct?
Can you just tell our audience, in two minutes, why is that a bad idea for poker rooms to be avoiding strong players? Dominik : Let me start with the first point.
It is absolutely correct for poker rooms to recruit new players to the game and also recreation of players. Ultimately, every dollar that can be won at poker by strong players that can be converted into rake must have been deposited by somebody else.
Increasing deposits from new players is very important for the sustainability of poker. There are multiple reasons for that.
Of course, it can be an outrage in the communities. At the end of the day, I think the most convincing argument that gets poker rooms that are on this misguided path to stop doing that is if you can rationally show that this is hurting their bottom line.
The actual details are really hard to explain in words. Warren : Sure. Some broader based questions for you, what were three of the key decisions you made in the infancy of the business that really helped make the company what it is today?
You rarely come home and suddenly everything is great. Warren : How did you stay focused on one site and one business? I think this is a mistake that many affiliates make.
The new affiliates in the first year, they launch 50 websites. How did you do that? Dominik : First of all, we just have one website.
We had some external agencies, but that was a total failure. SEO is not our focus at all. Now, I guess this habit of starting many websites probably comes from an SEO mindset.
I think that is going out of fashion more and more quickly. My recommendation to affiliates is to build a valuable product. What does value mean?
Value either means value to the customer or value to the business partner. A website that actually does something and adds something.
This has always been our focus. Now, of course building a valuable product is much more effort. In general, that would probably be my recommendation for affiliates that are starting out is to build something that actually generates value in any way, shape, or form.
It could be different things. It could be news content. It could be education like we do. It could be some kind of more disruptive idea like Pokertube, for example.
I do think that is the most sustainable thing to do. Also, if you build proper value for the customer and for the business partner, you are much harder to be cut out as an unnecessary middle man.
Some poker rooms have cut back on their affiliate programs in the past. I do think building a valuable product is key.
Warren : Thank you for that. Luckily, we got it right thus far. What kind of company is it? What kind of substance do they have?
Are they a big company or a small company? Are they trustworthy? All these kinds of things, you must check. You must check as an affiliate for your own security but also for the security of your customers.
We take that very seriously. Probably every week, we turn down three different poker rooms or entities that want to incorporate with us because we have relatively high standards when it comes to choosing our business partners.
Then, of course, when you want establish a business partnership, I always recommend to have a proper contract in place.
Standard terms can be very one-sided at times. That covers the business-to-business side. More important is the business-to-customer side. You have to make sure that the poker brands you promote are actually good products, ideally.
Companies change and there might be differences in quality. One poker room might have great software, another poker room has poor software, one poker room has a great customer service, and another has not such a great customer service.
You can only work with certain business partners.
