Lee Jones leaves Cake Poker

Posted by Gerry Poltorak on Dec 29, 2010 Posted in Poker Industry News | No Comments »

In a shocking revelation on the 2+2 poker forums, Cake Poker Card-Room Manager Lee Jones announced he was leaving Cake Poker effective immediately. Jones cited recent strategic decisions made by the management as the portents for his leaving.

Jones stated on 2+2: “This is a brief announcement to let you know that, as of yesterday, I have resigned my position at Cake Poker and will not be making any further posts here. Their management has made some strategic decisions with which I’m not comfortable.”

Also leaving Cake Poker over the same issues was Serge “Adanthar” Ravitch, who became Cake Poker’s tournament guru when he took over the position of Tournament Director for the site. Adanthar, who was instrumental in the uncovering of the Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet Poker Super-User scandals, echoed Jones sentiments in his own post: “It sincerely pains me to say that, for the same reasons, I am also no longer affiliated with Cake in any way. I wish them the best of luck going forward.”

Neither Jones nor Ravitch explained what the precise decisions were that caused them to leave Cake Poker but one can speculate that it has something to do with the US poker market –Jones wrote an extensive post on 2+2 during the online poker debate in early December where he basically said US online poker is untenable in the future without legislation.

Stay tuned as this breaking story continues to unfold.
