Although one of the top poker rooms on the iPoker Network, Titan Poker has ended its relationships with team pros Marvin Rettenmaier and Sam Trickett, leaving the poker site without representation by any professional poker players.
Titan made no formal announcement regarding the decision to deplete its pro roster, yet both players took to Twitter to inform the poker community about the amicable parting of ways. Trickett tweeted his departure on May 3, while Rettenmaier said this through his account last Sunday, “@titan_poker has decided to part ways with its Pro Team. I am very thankful for the opportunities and I had a great time representing them.”
Both players signed with Titan in March, 2010, and both also renewed their agreements last June to continue through 2011. Trickett had an incredible 2011 as a Titan pro, winning an Aussie Millions $100,000 No-Limit Hold’em event and taking second place a few days later in the $250,000 Super High Roller No-Limit Hold’em tourney. He also won the Partouche Poker Main Event in September in Cannes, France, and made final tables in events at the European Poker Tour as well as the 2011 WSOP Europe.
Rettenmaier cashed in 25 live tournaments last year, pocketing more than $600,000. The German pro recently won the €2,000 No-Limit Hold’em event held at the EPT Grand Final. Expect both pros to sign deals to represent other poker sites in the near future.
