Gus Says Goodbye

Gus Says Goodbye

Tuesday, 14 October 2008

Opened last year, many looked forward to the launch of as a way to get closer to one of the game's most sought after characters. Gus Hansen has revealed that will no longer be involved with the site though in a statement released through the site yesterday.

It seems that the split was instigated by some behind-the-scenes happenings which didn't seem to fall in line with Hansen's plans for the site, ultimately meaning he and the team which launched the site have now stepped back.

Here's his statement in full:

"Playrs, Friends and Fans,

Thanks for your support for our site. Its been fun. Now it is time for a new era of ThePlayr.

We had a lot of hopes and ambitions for the site and we did our utmost to bring you the best of the best and the coolest of the cool. Unfortunately, it got a little messed up behind the scenes which is why the current team, including me, has decided to let someone new take over the community.

Through ThePlayr, I have had the opportunity to meet a lot of you guys, either in person or in cyperspace. It has been a pleasure – even when you busted me in the Gus Invitationals.

It was your active participation that made ThePlayr an instant success. I wish you the best of luck at the tables and lots of enjoyment as Playrs – be it "in real life" or as part of this community.

See you at the next big tournament or on Full Tilt Poker.
