Did Merge Gaming CEO quit?

by Jeremy

Even since Black Friday happened, people have been concerned about the remaining US-friendly online poker operations. In the case of the Everleaf network, sometimes these concerns are valid. However, sometimes there are events that make people jump to conclusions, such as the recent rumor about Merge Gaming CEO Anthony Taylor stepping down.

PocketFives discussed this subject by writing about how sources are reporting Taylor’s departure. The site also mentioned that the CEO leaving doesn’t necessarily mean anything significant at this point. They wrote:

PocketFives has confirmed through a source close to the network that Merge Gaming CEO Anthony Taylor has stepped down. PocketFives first caught wind of the story last week, although we were at the time unable to confirm it concretely. Pokerfuse broke the news in an article published on Monday. The news site explained, “The reason for Taylor’s departure is unknown, although it is understood that companies with a business relationship with the network have been reassured that his resignation is not cause for concern.”

Even if Taylor quitting doesn’t truly mean anything, it’s likely that plenty of people will jump to conclusions. After all, US players are still trying to get their money off of Everleaf, and nobody wants to deal with this trouble at another poker network.

The best advice that’s been given throughout the poker community is to only deposit money you can afford to lose. Sure this is easier said than done because nobody wants to lose any money. However, if you feel that you’ve got an edge in the games, it’s still worth keeping a little money on US-friendly sites so you can at least continue winning some cash.
