David Williams and Bodog Poker part ways

Not long after Justin “ZeeJustin” Bonomo’s departure from Bodog Poker, the company has also parted ways with their most recognizable sponsored player, David Williams. The move comes mere days after Williams captured the $25,000 World Poker Tour Championship worth $1.5 million, although Williams wore the Bodog logo prominently throughout the event.

Both sides have been extremely quiet on the split, especially the typically outspoken David Williams, who can normally be found updating his Twitter account throughout the day. After his massive win at the WPT Championship it’s highly likely Williams will land at one of the “Big Two” in online poker, PokerStars or Full Tilt Poker.

In a blog entry on CalvinAyre.com Bodog explained their move towards a “more retailed focus” has been the main reason why the male poker pros have not been renewed.

Bodog’s traffic numbers have been trending downward over the last 6 months according to pokerscout.com; the down-trend isn’t staggering, but could be a possible explanation for Bodog’s motives in dismissing Williams and Bonomo.Bodog’s decreasing numbers is also suprising as Bodog would be rated one of the Best Sites for Poker among players who play there. Their departure has left Bodog with a single legitimate sponsored player, Evelyn Ng.

Bodog recently signed a second female online player from their own ranks, Amanda Musemeci. Musemeci has nowhere near the success of Williams or Bonomo, but does have the fact that she is a cute, 25 year-old, female going for her!
