Changes at Cake Poker Make Some Weary

December 30, 2010

Two operational heads at Cake Poker announced their resignations from the popular US-friendly Cake Poker online poker card room via online poker forum Two Plus Two. First, Lee Jones, former Card Room Manager for Cake Poker, announced his resignation from the company earlier this week via a TwoPlusTwo thread. He posted: “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.”

He added, “Please direct any questions or concerns to the Cake support staff; they are top-notch people.”

Not long after, Serge Ravitch (aka “adanthar”), former tournament director for Cake Poker, posted: “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.”

It is still unknown as to what “strategic decisions” the two men are referring to, but this may mean big changes are in store for Cake Poker and its players—good or bad.

In an interview Tuesday afternoon, Jones said, “I’m just not comfortable with some of the decisions that the Cake management was making.” He also admitted that he has some other job offers in the works, so he’s not without a job, but many of his fans on TwoPlusTwo have wished him and Ravitch luck in the future and saying good things about the pair. Calvin Ayre commented on his blog that it likely means that a crash and burn is in the cards for Cake Poker when the two top operational heads walk away in the same day.

It is unclear what the future holds for Cake Poker, but they have experienced a bit of a down turn in December traffic, which could merely be accredited to the holidays.
