In just over a week, Pokerpages. com will officially close its doors. The announcement was made earlier in the month, although it did not come as a big surprise. The economy has hit many online poker sites hard, and it is not surprising that one of the big news sites would eventually fail.

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: hey guys! I’m Dave Brenes… I am only returning for one last post… 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 3am… Kevin and Jordan were trying to take out the computers and leave without saying anything!!! I’m effectively not working for Pitbull obviously, but I just wanted to tell you that Pitbull is over… 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.
