Hey guys. As you may or may not have heard I recently just singed a new deal with Lock Poker. Its a nice relief after dealing with that nightmare that was the CEREUS network. I no as representitives of the site we have to take responsibillities for our choice of representing that site. No matter how good your intentions are sometimes they turn out pretty horrific.

Thats why Im so thrilled with the LOCK POKER deal. The owner of the site has been absoutely fantastic to deal with. She is all about the people she wants to make poker on lock the most enjoyable experience possible. That rubs off on all the people she works with including the pro's. I am joining a group of well established pro's some of them I have met in the past and not only do I respect their game but I no they are good people too. Eric Lynch and Matt Stout are both on the list. Both of whom I have had the pleasure of meeting before. They have both welcomed me on board and I look forward to doing my part in making Lock Poker a great place to play.

For those of you that dont no its on the merge network. Its pretty much exploding onto the poker scene since black friday. Just the over all feel of the people on that site is so refreshing. If you have not yet downloaded lock and wish to play there Id love to see you on the tables. 

I have pretty much turned the corner in my poker career and there is no looking back at the past for me. I have accomplished alot in the online community when refering to mtt's. I hope to take the next step in my live career at this years wsop. I have a house with the fellow tournament poker edge pro's. I am going to try and play as many bracelet events as I possibly can. Anyway I hope to see you all around. I can almost smell the amazon room already :) Good times ahead.

Peace all and gl gl

LOL - I do not no who he is. I do no I'm not familiar with the name. If anyone does no who he is, could you let us no? Thanks!

(As an aside, how the #*$) can you not know the difference between "no" and "know". What a frickin' clown!)

I presume the baseball accident mentioned in his bio was a linedrive to his frontal lobe erasing his grasp of English, grammer, spelling, punctuation, writing and syntax. Go with your strengths Dude!

Hes a top on-line tournamant player, and hes a coach at an on-line poker site called poker edge. He is a great player with huge success on-line, most of the best players in the world are not household names. Just because they dont appear regularly on poker after dark or high stakes poker!!! "Poker celebrities" get all the attention however alot of them dont even turn a profit each year anymore playing poker.

However as good a player as bigdogpck5s is, i feel that he, Hellmuth and Sebok all have a responsibility to try and return players funds from UB. They were paid to represent and promote UB, especially SEBOK who said the only reason he signed with them was to try return money to the players who had been cheated. Then as soon as his 30K a month contract gets cancelled he no longer cares about helping the players.

I think Sebok is the worst kind of sellout there is, Thousands of people have been cheated of their hard earned money, while he was payed to defend them amd lie on their behalf, and he just wants to walk away into the sunset and carry on like nothing ever happened.

Bigdogpck5s now has a new deal with lock poker, great im happy for him. But how can he ever expect to be respected in the poker community. in HIS own words he calls the Cereus network a "NIGHTMARE", you were'nt saying that when they paying you bro.....

If your going to sit in a pile of sh$t and tell everybody that it smells like roses, then you BETTER the F$%K be able to stand by that sh$t when you get out of the pile. Don't get involved with a company with a shady reputation just to get paid then the second you stop getting paid by them tell everyone it was a nightmare. Your a real piece of work, and I honestly feel that an explanation of why your saying this is in order. THEN to talk crap about your previous employer while still wearing their hat on your blog???? I'd ask where your grammar is, but you'd probably tell me she's dead so I'm not going there.

"No matter how good your intentions are sometimes they turn out pretty horrific." Lets get one thing straight. Your intention was to make money. You didn't have an offer on the table from another site, and didn't want to waste an opportunity that might not come again. Your a sellout. A sellout with no conscious. Yes, you have more money than me, and yes you've done with your life what I only wish I could do, and I'm sure you don't give a rats ass what I or anybody else says or thinks about you. Please, though. Do yourself a favor. I'm sure there are night classes available to take in your area. I would recommend doing so. I know you don't have to have an 8th grade education to be able to blog or sign a contract (probably did so with crayon) but your just embarrassing yourself with your writing. If I ran a company I would want people representing it that other people can look up to and respect. Not people that I felt I was better than. There's a reason Peyton Manning gets all those endorsement deals. Because people look up to him. There's a reason that "Corky" from life goes on doesn't. (just google it if that's too old a reference)

Since you are trying to correct his grammar, let me jump in and try to correct yours: "If YOU'RE going to sit in a pile of sh$t...", "YOU'RE a real piece of work, and I honestly feel that an explanation of why YOU'RE saying this is in order" and "YOU'RE a sellout"

I mean if it makes you feel good to degrade me and point out my grammer mistakes then please feel free lol. I have 0 issues with that. You can throw out a fat joke too if you like im ok with that as well. And I wasnt trashing anyone. I was simply stating fact that the whole Cereus thing is and was a nightmare. I have lost sleep over the whole thing whether you chose to beleive it or not. Because I was a rep at AP and have horrific grammer as you have so nicely pointed out. Doesnt really make me a bad person. Sorry for offending you tho. Please accept my appologies.

You're a stand up guy for commenting back. I respect that. Most bloggers wouldn't do that. Thank you. I still don't understand why your saying negative things about your involvement with Cereus. We all knew there were problems with the organization, and even after the shakedown. Say what you want about Negraneu but he really stuck his neck out and put his reputation on the line saying things about that company. Why would you (or anybody else that signed with them for that matter) sign with a company that had such a horrible reputation to begin with, and then when everything that people said would happen actually starts happening you say it was a nightmare. I'm not saying I wouldn't have made the same decision. Had I been less conservative in 02 - 08, and actually used my skills to rise up the ranks instead of being so scared all the time and not doing so and UB offered me an opportunity to be a sponsored player when there was no other offers on the table I can't say I wouldn't have made the same decision. I just feel that you made your bed and have to lie down in it. Instead of saying it was a nightmare, just say you made a mistake to sign with them in the first place, you wish you never had, but that everything in life happens for a reason. You learned from your mistake and thankfully a new, wonderful organization has offered you an opportunity to represent a brand that you are proud to represent. I'm not a fan of bashing previous employers AFTER you leave. It's like talking crap about an ex-girlfriend after you break up. Just be the bigger man.
You having bad grammar doesn't make you a bad person. I am sorry if I implied that was the case. Good luck with Lock.

Now that you're responding to posts, what about the money that was dumped to you before you left UB??? You're going to conveniently forget to respond to this post I'd imagine.

If you were dumb enough to play on UB/AP after the initial scandal, I have very little sympathy for you.

@BIGDOGPCK5S,
Dude if you read my first comment,i didnt say anything personel. Infact if anything id say i was complimentary

But you come on here talking about your "NIGHTMARE" of being paid to basically do nothing??? What do you want sympathy????

Try worrying about whether you can pay your rent this month, or if you can attend your high school buddies wedding next weekend because your money is tied up in UB

Thats the reality for most on-line players bro, and the only thing worse is that the likes of you and Sebok expect us to feel sorry for you????

You need to have a long hard think about what you're saying

Anyone dumb enough to leave large sums of non-disposable money in any online poker site is plain stupid. Even smarter to leave your entire worth on a site that has a history of shady activity.

Thats it, huh? No apologies to players whom youve screwed over by being affiliated with UB???

You do wear a UB hat, and are an endorser of their product right?

And yet, nothing??????

I have never met you, nor would I want to after this...You are just another player in the long line of scummy players who will jump from ship to ship and not give a damn about the people who youve screwed over.

The longer you fail to post any sort of response to mattrat33's comment above will naturally only make you appear to be guilty of the accusation?

lol What is he guilty of? Accepting a sponsorship deal for being good at poker? Like you wouldn't do the same if you were his spot. Fault lies with the website owners and operators and the dummys who were dumb enough to leave rent money in their online poker accounts.
