Blanca games, UB.com and Absolute Poker's parent company, has just announced that they have been forced to let go of 11 pros. The affected pros are Joe Sebok (picture), Prahlad Friedman, Eric "Basebaldy" Baldwin, Maria Ho, Brandon Cantu, Tiffany Michelle, Scott Ian, "Hollywood" Dave Stann, Adam "Roothlus" Levy, Bryan Devonshire and Trishelle Cannatella.
It can't be fun for Blanca's management at the moment. They just had to let go of 300 employees in Costa Rica and now they have to let go of 11 US-based pros + they have received lots of criticism in the past week due to the bankruptcy rumors. However, according to a press release, the company is still in discussions with U.S.Attorney's Office to reach an agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice to facilitate the return of US players funds. So let's hope that all U.S. players will get back their outstanding funds soon.
