Merge Network Loses Hero Poker


According to the latest reports, a non-US online poker brand Hero Poker has departed from the Merge Poker Network, and its players have been moved to one of the flagship sites on the network.

It has been revealed by Hero Poker CEO David Jung that he may start up another poker site in 2013, presumably on an alternative network.

Addressing Hero Poker players, he assured them that their funds were secure, and their migration to another Merge site would be "relatively painless."

He said: "In terms of player VIP points and coupons, I have received confirmation that VIP point balances and tournament tickets will be transferred to your new accounts.

"You do not need the client to get access to your funds as you will be able to transfer your account via a weblink, which I will be posting once the client has been disabled tonight. But for those with the client, they will be prompted with a message screen to that effect."

He also added: "I do want to thank the Merge gaming management for making this transition as smooth as possible as it has been clear that it has been both Hero's and Merge's priority to ensure that the players are well taken care of," Jung wrote, promising to remain active on the message board.

"I expect to do a full update within in the next couple of days on where Hero is going, but for the moment, I'd like to focus on ensuring that our existing players are able to transition properly," he wrote.

"While I'll save my own personal statement on all of this later, again, I'd like to be clear about 2 things right now. Simply put, Hero and Merge weren't going the same direction any longer and it just didn't make sense on both sides to continue."

Regarding the future plans, Jung noted that "Hero Poker will be relaunching on a new network for early 2013, but it was decided that this was the best course of action for existing players to enjoy the full tournament MTT guarantees and more payment processing options."
