Re: JNandez Leaves Upswing Poker Statement Thread

Doug Polker is the only Supreme Leader I know, who is this Mason guy deleting threads? So many others get slandered here on a regular basis and it's perfectly fine. These guys were airing out the truth and it's nuked, amazing.

Re: JNandez Leaves Upswing Poker Statement Thread

Sounds like all parties (including 2+2) are taking the best outlook on what could have been an ugly situation.

Doug, very good of you to offer refunds to your paying customers. A lot of companies give the impression that they would take this sort of action... but very few do when they have to exercise their words into practice.
Hopefully you get a wider range of PLO coaches so you don't leave yourself too vulnerable.

Re: JNandez Leaves Upswing Poker Statement Thread

So many times so much butthurt has arisen out of a move Mason has made with his business.

He must be doing something right. Go take a look at what an uncensored free for all poker forum looks like these days. RGP.

That's where 2p2 haters used to congregate. Now it's like three guys talking about Trump.

Re: JNandez Leaves Upswing Poker Statement Thread

And in case Mason is still reading, good for you giving them both time to step back. Basically we all should be so lucky that when we start spouting off online, someone would clean up after us.

Even if I did want to rubberneck and see the car crash myself....

Re: JNandez Leaves Upswing Poker Statement Thread

Polk accuses JN of trying to steal customers and basically pocketing money, and you want more? Tough crowd!

Hi Doug. I am US based player interested in the position. Right now I'm crushing 2PLO at a clip of 42.56bb/100 (and I have the screenshots to prove it). I noticed in your tweet about the opening that you are offering a very generous compensation package. One way in which I stand out from the other competing applicants is that I am willing to accept alternate forms of payment in lieu of aforementioned salary. In this case, I'd be willing to do some sort of NLH/PLO coaching trade (payment to be remitted up front of course). Four hours ought to do the trick, please let me know.

They really weren't bad. About the same as what you see here. More accusatory and less political, but it hadn't spiraled into any serious mudslinging or anything, as far as I got to see it anyway.

Doug said jnandez was unethical, jnandez said he wanted to do things differently and had the right to do so.

I guess there was some stuff about timing and who said what, and also how refunds would work (the question being if jnandez would contribute to refunds via his pay).

Really confusing that it was removed.

Poor Doug gets taken advantage of again. Reminds me of the Ben toblerone situation.

However it seems like he’s his own worst enemy, how does he not even know his own contract and then complain about it...lol

Re: JNandez Leaves Upswing Poker Statement Thread

One thing that was discussed in the original thread (that hasnt been mentioned here) is that Doug/Upswing probably had to have that clause (that allowed JNandez to leave) in the contract to make it legal. While Doug probably still should have known that clause was in the contract, it sounds like his lawyer probably had that in the contract as a standard thing.

He likely made 10s if not 100k+ sitting on his ass, how was he "taken advantage of" again?

He's offering to pay a new coach $100-$250K to take Jscamnez's spot, think he made a little more than that....

Is it really your contention that if you make a bunch of money "sitting on your ass" that you can't get taken advantage of? Really? Besides that, let's ignore the time, money, and effort that was put into creating, promoting, and maintaining Upswing so JN can have the opportunity to get known and bail. Doug sounds lazy af.
