ABERDEEN, New Jersey (September 14, 2009) – Lock Poker, a rapidly growing and innovative online poker room on the Cake Network has expanded its Pro Program yet again. Following last month’s promotion of Eric ‘Rizen’ Lynch to Director of Product Development, the addition of 10 top North American players, and today’s announcement of 12 International Pros, Lock has signed 3 more American Stars.
Online Legend and WSOP Bracelet winner Brett ‘Gank’ Jungblutt, Vinny Pahuja (he finished top ten in last year’s POY race), and the incredibly hot David Zeitlin all joined forces with Lock Poker.
Jungblut, a member of “The Crew”, was quite happy to achieve his long-desired and overdue goal to be sponsored by an online card room. He was the bracelet winner at the WSOP 2004 Limit Omaha Hi/Lo event to go along with a myriad of online accomplishments which have garnered a cult following.
Pahuja, who left his lucrative position on Wall Street two years ago to pursue poker full-time has performed fantastically on the circuit, has 2 wins in 2009 and had an incredible 9 final tables in 2008. His two wins this year came at Mohegan Sun on July 25th and at The Wynn Classic back in March. Vinny also had 3 WSOP cashes in 2009.
Zeitlin, a former practicing attorney, has 7 final tables this year alone and has amassed over $1,000,000 in earnings since turning pro. He recently won the Mohegan Sun Deep Stack event on July 29th for $136,587.
“We have a true partnership with these players and understand the value of each one of them. With Eric “rizen” Lynch and Lock PRO driving our product we are confident we will have the best online poker experience worldwide” commented Lock Sole Founder and CEO Jennifer Larson.
Jungblut, Pahuja and Zeitlin are clients of Poker Players International, the world’s largest poker agency. PPI founders Eugene Castro and Randall Kasper once again expressed their enthusiasm with respect to the signings as well as the direction Lock Poker is headed.
” Lock is indeed fortunate to add such great players of great character to their ranks. These three are truly top notch, both on and off the felt. These players are also fortunate to find a truly innovative room to partner with.” remarked PPI’s Agency Leader Randy Kasper.
