Polish a Turd, It's Still a Turd

the Cereus network.
PokerPages.com Has Left the Tournament Area
In just over a week, Pokerpages. com will officially close
its doors. The announcement was made earlier in the month,

that one of the big news sites would eventually fail.
PitBull Poker Dead - Good Luck Getting Your Money
Pitbull Poker is indeed dead. A couple of days ago, fellow
Poker Junkie Glen posted a comment on my last post about the
troubled site stating that he has not received any of the
$7,600 of the bankroll he had on the site. The day he posted
this, I found the following on 2+2 forums posted by "former"
Network Manager Dave Brenes:
Iâm Dave Brenesâ¦ I am only returning for one last
postâ¦ several weeks ago Kevin Baronowski took away the
login to 2+2 from me and since then I stopped following up
on the threads as per his request. Tonight one of the people
at Pitbull called me in at 3amâ¦ Kevin and Jordan were
trying to take out the computers and leave without saying
Iâm effectively not working for Pitbull obviously, but
I just wanted to tell you that Pitbull is overâ¦ we will
make sure things come out clear.
Traffic Plummets at Pitbull Poker Over Superuser Allegations
The allegations of cheating over at Pitbull Poker are flying
high and it looks like the site has done very little to
address concerns. For those unfamiliar with the situation,
user "Chesterboy" and others have alleged that there are
superusers at the site. Owners of the site will not talk to
the media but have been answering complaints via poker
forums such as TwoPlusTwo. When requested that hand histories be released, the site
only released the last 1,000 hands by Chesterboy, but by
that point, he had quit playing in the games he felt rigged.
