According to a source close to the situation, Stan Strickland, Director of Poker Operations at Borgata in Atlantic City, has been asked to resign. Strickland, who has headed the poker room since 2006, is rumored to be heading to the Isle Casino in Pompano Park, Florida, according to the source.
As director of poker operations, Strickland oversaw the growth of both the Spring and Winter tournament series, partnered with the World Poker Tour, and helped initiate a $1 million renovation to create an exclusive high-limit poker lounge now known as The Boardroom.
In February, for the first time ever, the Borgata Poker Room earned less than the Parx Poker Room in Bensalem, PA.
PokerNews reached out to Ray Stefanelli, Director of Poker Marketing for Borgata, but received no comment. PokerNews also reached out to human resources, again receiving no comment.
