Evelyn Ng and David Williams now stand alone as sponsored pros on the Bodog homepage after it was revealed that Jean-Robert Bellande’s contract has not been renewed for the US-friendly online poker room, casino and sportsbook.

“Jean-Robert Bellande’s deal with Bodog Poker expired at the end of October and the decision was made not to renew the deal. It has been an absolute pleasure having Jean-Robert as one of’s Poker pros and we wish him all the best,” the room’s Poker Manager told Poker News Daily.

This is contrary to Bellande’s statement in February, in which he claimed that he was “thrilled to continue [my] relationship with Team Bodog. Bodog is a fantastic organization and [I am] excited to continue with such a select team of world-class poker players.”

Bellande is not without his share of honours – in 2008 he finished second in a $1,500 Limit Hold ‘em shootout event to Matt Graham, taking home $173,000. He has earned over $75,000 in WPT events and made a third place on the WSOP Circuit for over $200,000.
