Titan Poker Clarifies Depletion of Pro Team

The recent departure of Sam Trickett and Marvin Rettenmaier from the pro roster of Titan Poker had many observers wondering if the poker room was closing shop, but the site formally announced that the depletion of its pro team was not based on any solvency issues.

Titan Poker announced on its website that it would hereafter center its attention on “pursuing a new branding strategy which moves away from focusing on a pro team and emphasizes our appeal to main stream and recreational poker players.”

Both European pros had incredible runs in 2011 representing Titan, which is one of the top sites on the iPoker Network. Though Titan’s rather short explanation regarding a strategy aimed at attracting more casual players is duly noted, it can be argued that popular pros such as Rettenmaier and Trickett have tremendous appeal to recreational players.
