Following Scandals, StoxPoker Brand May Cease To Exist Come May 1st

Following a series of scandals which rocked instructional poker training site ‘StoxPoker’ to its core, the site has now announced that on May 1st it will be merging with its parent company Cardrunners.
In all likelyhood, the StoxPoker brand will now disappear altogether as its vast video library and stable of StoxPoker coaches move over to the Cardrunners’ camp.
StoxPoker has suffered from much bad publicity recently with poker pro and StoxPoker founder Nick “StoxTrader” Grudzien, resigning recently after rumours surfaced about him using multiple accounts on both Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars.
In addition, Stox Poker instructor Jason Ho was fired for misrepresenting his abilities and scamming money out of unsuspecting site members, while key players such as mind coach Jared Tendler and Dusty top poker coach “leatherass” Schmidt left StoxPoker for rival training site DragTheBar.
Following the announcement of the merger, several StoxPoker instructors have posted farewells on their blogs, including Kyle “cottonseed” Hendon, who wrote: “Several different events over the past year and how the community as a whole has handled and reacted to them has left me feeling a bit jaded. To say otherwise would be a lie.”
However, to elay any concerns by StoxPoker members, the site’s brand manager Alex Huang has assured clients that all current memberships would be transferred over to CardRunners, although the precise content and schedule to be released on the new Cardrunners was yet to be decided.
Striking a positive note on the whole merger, Alex Huang continued: “We look forward to CardRunners fielding the most diverse and talented roster to produce instructional videos for our members. The combination of both websites will provide a tremendous depth and breadth of knowledge and this expertise will be exhibited throughout all the content that we will produce going forward.”
