 Blonde Poker set for iPoker axe... due to winning players

Tuesday, 24 November 2009

The future of online poker room Blonde Poker is in the air due to an extraordinary decision from hosts, iPoker. The iPoker network has given the skin three-months to leave the network due to them having an excess of winning players.

Writing on the Blonde Poker forum, co-founder and shareholder Tony ‘Tikay’ Kendall said, “On Friday, BlondePoker Web Ltd received in writing 3 months notice of Termination of our Contract with Aqua/i-poker. The document was a complex one – 15 pages long, full of equations & algorithms, but the gist of it was that, on aggregate, the blonde players are winning players.”

Kendall added, “They went on to explain, & demonstrate, that, as an example, once the new arrangements come into place, our performance in October would have resulted in a fine in the region of $30,000, based on how much our players won. The Net Rake which accrued to blonde was about $7,000 I think, so we’d be on a net loss of some $20,000+. Because our players were winning.

The site is in talks to find an alternative network. Players have been assured that their money is safe.
