A poker network is what poker sites use to tie all their poker players together and enable them to play poker online together. A poker network consists of centralised servers and client software running on the players’ computers that connects to the central servers. It is most common for a poker network to be owned and operated by a company separate from the poker site and for several different poker sites to use the same network, thus enabling players at different sites to play with eachother.
Each poker site on a network can make changes to the appearance and features of the software, to distinguish themselves from the others on the same network. This is what is called a “skin” – a thin layer of look-and-feel on top of the network software. The skins of a network is thus the different poker sites and adaptations of that network’s software used by the poker players.
