Subject: Poker will not be publishing any more articles.
Currently, Thomas Bakker and I are starting a poker security consulting company.1 As a result, I can no longer guarantee my independence as editor-in-chief. Subject: Poker‘s founding principle is independence, so it would be inappropriate for me to continue Subject: Poker.
The website will stay up with all articles intact for the foreseeable future, but it will naturally become a bit of a relic as time passes and no new articles are added. I hope that it will continue to prove a useful resource for the poker community.
Diamond Flush has decided to start a new poker news site, Diamond Flush Poker. Diamond has been an incredible member of our team who’s written many of our most important articles, including the first story to mention Full Tilt’s french investor; our story correcting the AGCC’s false numbers; all stories related to the pending deal between GBT, FTP, and the DOJ; our recent story exposing Chris Ferguson’s secret bank accounts; and many others. DFP will be inheriting much of our data, sources, and research as well. We look forward to getting our news from there, and we recommend that our readers do the same.
Subject: Poker‘s farewell has been in the works for a while now. In particular, to avoid accepting money under false pretenses, we simply broke our donations link two weeks ago, and nobody has donated to us since. We will now restore the link. Our modest sum of unspent donations and any future donations to Subject: Poker will go to our various maintenance fees, with any surplus going (lovingly) to Diamond’s new site. If any of our donors do not agree with this decision, they can simply e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for a prompt refund (less PayPal’s transaction fees).
Subject: Poker‘s only payments have been for various maintenance fees, PACER bills, transport costs, and two company lunches. In particular, nobody has profited off of the site.
So, goodbye. We’ve enjoyed keeping the poker community informed for the past eight or nine months. Thanks for being a part of that. We hope Diamond Flush will be able to bring us some good news.
