Stoxpoker.com merging with Cardrunners

http://www.stoxpoker.com/viewblogs.php

Quote:
In lieu of the recent events, it has been decided that the StoxPoker website will be merged with CardRunners. This change will take full-effect on May 1st, 2010.

We feel that this is the best course of action for both the members as well as our Coaches and we look forward to CardRunners fielding the most diverse and talented roster to produce instructional videos for our members. The combination of both websites will provide a tremendous depth and breadth of knowledge and this expertise will be exhibited throughout all the content that we will produce going forward.

All of you who have memberships to StoxPoker will have your memberships honored and transferred to CardRunners. If there are any issues with screen name conflicts or payments, we will handle each matter individually and in a timely manner.

While I will continue to serve in my role as a liaison for the members as Brand Manager, I wanted to thank each and every one of you for your continued support and contributions to the community and for making StoxPoker a tremendous asset for aspiring players. I look forward to continue dissecting hands and gathering your suggestions on the CardRunners forums.

If you have any specific questions regarding your accounts or inquiries, I will answer questions in the corresponding forum as well as via email at stoxalex@gmail.com.

Warm Regards,

Alex Huang
StoxPoker Brand Manager

Re: Stoxpoker.com merging with Cardrunners

I am just curious ( as most are I am sure ) about the existing video library at Stox and if ALL of the videos will be available or if there will be a weeding out process and some of them will be taken off line when the merge is complete.

I am sad to see this happen because between the two sites, there seemed to be something released almost daily that got my interest. With 4 videos + a day made available it was highly likely that I would be able to see a new video and at the very least, go back and look at some older material.

Now with the merger, perhaps we will just be seeing +2 videos a day released and maybe some instructors will stop being able to contribute and offering their insight to the game and that would be a shame.

Of course, its all just wait and see for now, but those are my concerns.

I got spoiled having both of the sites to learn from, and I know CR will continue to be strong, but I really wish there could have been another way and the merge could have been avoided.

At any rate, lets see what May 1st brings and take it from there.

I would assume all your points would go to CR subscriptions now.

Unless they decide to release 4 vids a day, the quality has just gotten much better!

It means someone was trying to sound sophisticated, but failed rather hilariously.

Stox is (possibly colluding) MAing shortstack -scandal. Or did you mean what that sentence means in literal sense? Means someone doesn't know what "in lieu of" means.


Since pretty much all "higher profile" coaches already left stoxpoker and then Jason Ho & Stoxtrader multiaccounting scandals, I'm not really surprised that stox was about to go down one way or another.

Re: Stoxpoker.com merging with Cardrunners

Didn't they merge a while back? I thought CR was already associated with another training site. What am I thinking of?

So the cheats decide to join altogether? At least now the bashing will unify then I guess...

It isn't really a merger. Whatever coaches CR wants go to CR. Stox brand dies.

Re: Stoxpoker.com merging with Cardrunners

Brian Townsend MAing
Jason Ho problems
Stoxtrader collusion.

Once, you'd think they'd put their house in order. Twice is just bad business.
Three times and people really will go elsewhere.
I will not be subscribing.

I'm sure you were on the fence before.

Serious players can't afford not to be members somewhere at least, and many of them everywhere.

It pays to know what your opponents are thinking.

In lieu of the AP/UB scandal they changed the name of the network to Cereus and later UltimateBet changed it's name to UB.com and got a new logo, they did not merge the weaker brand into the stronger.

This is fairly savvy crisis management though imo. CR is run by some smart doodz.

i'm shocked this wasn't the first post. i seriously couldn't even read the rest of the statement because i couldn't get myself past the first sentence. i reread it like 6 times trying to make sense of it and then scrolled down to the comments.
