Embattled Lock Poker Loses Brett “Gank” Jungblutt

Embattled Lock Poker Loses Brett “Gank” Jungblutt Back in 2009, Brett “Gank” Jungblutt joined Lock Poker but now the US pro has decided to no longer represent the site as the poker room continues to suffer from restrictive payout constraints.
The New Jersey pro won a gold bracelet at the 2004 WSOP $5k Omaha Hi-Lo Split event for $187,720, and throughout his live career has earned $448,628. Online, the player known as “Gank” has also notched up a further $662,423 in winnings.
Considering his 3 and  half years spent at Lock Poker, it is fair to say Brett Jungblutt felt contented to represent the poker room, but over the past few months the site’s sponsored pros have come under increasing criticism from customers, some of whom have been waiting months to receive cashed-out funds. Earlier this month, Chris Moorman and Paul Volpe opted to part ways with Lock Poker, and now Brett “Gank” Jungblutt has signaled further woes for the beleaguered site.
Posting his announcement Thursday on the 2+2 forum, an extract of Jungblutt post read; “Since Lock is currently unable to provide adequate customer service or reliable payouts to the USA, and since current conditions may remain that way indefinitely, I just no longer feel it is responsible for me to represent the site.”
Nevertheless, Jungblutt was keen to point out that his departure was not based on any “inside’ knowledge,” while also taking the opportunity to express his sympathies with customers still awaiting their cashed-out funds.
Despite the latest departure, Lock Poker has still managed to maintain a roster of over twenty pros, including some high profile players. These include the likes of Michael Mizrachi, Annette Obrestad, Melanie Weisner, and Matt Stout.
