Over the past few weeks, things have been pretty rough for Lock Poker. The online poker room has been under fire for numerous cash out concerns by players as well as the banning of player to player transfer issues. However, it seems Lock’s pro team has seen its own numbers drastically reduced over the scandals that have embroiled the company over the past year.
As most of our readers already know, now-former Lock Poker team pros Chris Moorman and Paul Volpe left the poker site amidst the scandals just a few weeks ago. After their departure, several other players from their group also resigned their pro positions. We have now learned that yet another player has decided to cut ties with Lock Poker.
According to his post last week on the TwoPlusTwo poker forums, Brett Jungblutt (aka Gank) has decided to part ways with the struggling Revolution Gaming site. The pro does not want to represent the site any longer and posted his thoughts on the forums last Thursday. Brett, otherwise known as ‘Gank’ online, posted this at TwoPlusTwo:
“After much thought and due diligence over the past few weeks, I have come to conclusion that it is time for me to no longer represent Lock.
This was not an easy decision, having been with Lock for over 3 and 1/2 years, but one that I feel must be made at this point.
Since Lock is currently unable to provide adequate customer service or reliable payouts to the USA, and since current conditions may remain that way indefinitely, I just no longer feel it is responsible for me to represent the site. I have listened to many of my peers and do not make this decision lightly.
It is my hope that Lock will continue to make strides to improve customer satisfaction & reduce payout delays. The last thing I would ever want is my fellow poker players harmed by a brand I represented.
I want to make clear that my departure is not based on any ‘inside’ knowledge, and I do not believe that there are any internal ill intentions. However there are many unknowns at this time, and because so much is up in the air, I feel it is now the correct decision for me to leave the company.
Lastly, I know many Lock players have recently felt betrayed in one way or another, and for any part I may have played in you feeling that way, I truly am sorry.”
Players responded to Gank’s admission with respect. It seemed the overall feeling was that the pro did the right thing by parting ways with Lock. The full thread of responses can be read here.
