Fernando Habegger "Kicked Out" of Upswing Poker?

Fernando Habegger "Kicked Out" of Upswing Poker?Fernando “JNandez87” Habegger has been a top pot-limit Omaha coach on Upswing Poker for the past year but has now left in order “to pursue other options” according to a statement released by Doug Polk, the training site’s owner. Polk further stated that Habegger had been a great addition to Upswing, but that the site was now hoping to find an “even stronger replacement” for him.
While the news may seem cordial enough, the manner of Habegger’s departure is not without controversy with the PLO expert claiming that he had unexpectedly found himself excluded from the Upswing Facebook group where internal members share their strategies and organise training sessions. Taking to YouTube to present his side of the argument, Habegger said that after he was “kicked out of the PLO FB group” he would now be releasing new poker training videos via his YouTube channel, with the intention of launching his own site called JNandezPoker.com before too long.
Meanwhile, Doug Polk and fellow Upswing Poker founder Ryan Fee took the opportunity to express their dissatisfaction as to Habegger’s action on the 2+2 forum. According to their comments, Habegger had left Upswing Poker before his agreed contract term has concluded, and furthermore, in a harsh rebuke to the player, stated that “he plans to steal our customers and use that to begin his own site.”
Nevertheless, Polk has said that Habegger would not be in breach of his contract provided that he continues to produce poker content for Upswing over the next few months. Polk also accused Habegger of holding on to his share of the courses money he was supposed to be involved with, which was met my a firm denial by Habegger who said:
“This is infactual, I am not pocketing anything. I have already talked about this with the whole Upswing team (including you) prior to your post and agreed that we are together refunding the members in full.”
Following the departure of Fernando Habegger, Upswing Poker now boasts a team of five trainers, including Polk and Fee themselves, in addition to Pratyush Buddiga, Matt Colletta, and Parker Talbot.
