Earlier today, news has circulated of the closure of The Fox Poker Club. A visible statement to players, the Fox Poker Club displayed the news of the closure upon visit to their website.
The statement released by the Fox Poker Club read,
“It is with regret that Genting UK plc today announces that the Fox Poker Club will cease operation.
The Management and Staff of Fox Poker Club would like to thank all of it’s customers for supporting the venture over the past two years.
Further information will be released shortly.”
Genting acquired the Fox Poker Club just over a year ago at the time stating,
“There will be no changes to the operation of the club in the immediate future.”
“Although the Fox has closed the venue will be refurbished and re-born in spring 2013 as a new venue. We understand the frustrations of those who may have paid to join the club recently and are working on a way to make good.”
Many fans took to the poker community Facebook fan page to express their confusion and surprise reactions to the news. One player in particular had this comment to express,
“Unbelievably gutted – just started playing fairly regularly on a Friday night. Have to find elsewhere to keep myself entertained til the wee hours of Saturday morning. Good luck to all the dealers and otherwise involved.”
The Fox Club in appreciation for the support shown later replied,
“Thanks to everyone for the messages of support. We wouldn’t want it to seem like we have left you high and dry and so are making arrangements for all deposits, tournament tokens and cash chips to be redeemable at Cromwell Mint Poker.
Thanks for your understanding and patience while we do this.”
