The cardroom Manager at Cake Poker, Lee Jones has left the company after 19 months of service due to issues that seem a little vague and strange. Claiming that he has left his managerial job at Cake Poker “because of some strategic decisions made by management that he was not comfortable with”. This leaves the door wide open for all types of speculation and because it has become public knowledge Cake Poker management needs to address this in a public manner to calm the nerves of thousands of online poker players and webmasters.
Not only did the cardroom manager quit, so did the “Tournament Director” Serge Ravitch. To have two top management spots left open in a small amount of time because of “vague” reasons should leave players and business partners very nervous about future dealings or deposits. Lee Jones has a good reputation in the online poker industry coming from PokerStars after a 4 year cardroom manager’s job there from 2003 to 2007, then took the job as Cake Poker’s cardroom manager for the past 19 months. For a respected manager to just up and leave a company with such vague reasons, but reasons that scream something is wrong with the integrity of Cake Poker must send the message to all those who frequent the site to play with caution or stay away totally until it becomes apparent what the situation is at the poker room.
