As a sign of their growing importance in the industry, Lock Poker has now announced the addition of two more pros to their growing stable of players representing the site.
The two new pros who have signed deals with Lock Poker are Bryan “PrimodialAA” Pellegrino and Bluff Poker Challenge winner Michael “bigguylegend22” Drummond.
Rising star Bryan “PrimodialAA” Pellegrino has already gained a reputation of being a fearless mid-high stakes HU Sit N Go specialist, with his skill demonstrated by an 8th place finish at the 2009 WSOP $10k Heads Up Championship for $92,580.
As well as boasting $181,588 in live tournament winnings, Pellegrino has also earned another $88,269 from online tournaments, according to pocketfives.
On the other hand, 24-year-old Michael Drummond is a New Hampshire resident who earned a place on the Lock Poker team after winning more than $90,000 on the site in April. Commenting on his latest deal with Lock Poker, an enthusiastic Drummond explained:
“I actually just got on Lock Poker earlier this month and it’s been awesome. I’ve been getting a ton of action and running well, which is always a deadly combination. The software is great, customer support is fast, and I look forward to continuing to play on this site.”
The duo will now take their places amongst the LockPRO team, which consists of another 14 poker players. Lock Poker also has a LockPRO ELITE team comprising of a dozen members, including Jose Macedo, Eric “Rizen” Lynch, Brett “gank” Jungblut, and Lee Childs.
Located on the Merge Gaming Network, Lock Poker has around 2,000 players online at any given time, with that number rising to over 3,000 at peak hours. It has also seen its cash game traffic increase by 333% year-over-year, as it moved to fill the gap left by the big three poker rooms post-Black Friday.
