You had to see this coming – Victory Poker Closes Up Shop.
All Victory Poker players found an e-mail on May 31st announcing that their accounts would be turned into Cake Poker accounts on June 1, and all your funds, Gold Cards and Gold Chips and tournament tickets will be transferred to your Cake player account.
Dan Fleyshman the CEO of Victory Poker is ending his dream of Victory Poker. He voluntarily left the US market right after the Poker Black Friday, by instructing the Cake Network to block all USA players. Fleyshman has stated that 1/3 of the Victory Poker players were residing in the United States. That number seems low to me, but he would know. It is public knowledge that Dan Fleyshman resides in Las Vegas, Nevada so you can’t blame the guy.
And to think, right before April 15th (Black Friday), Dan was in meetings with the Cereus network (UB & Absolute Poker) to move Victory Poker to Cereus.
Fleyshman has posted on his Facebook page:
“The brand will continue doing strategy, news (and) videos as an affiliate site, I will be focusing much more on my upcoming charity, consulting other companies and helping with Victory marketing.”
Better luck next time, magic man.
