Borgata Director of Poker Operations Resigns

Borgata Poker Room
Share this reported on Monday that a source close to the situation stated Stan Strickland, Director of Poker Operations at Borgata in Atlantic City, will resign his position.

Strickland, as director of poker operations, helped grow the spring and winter tournament series and helped initiate a $1 million renovation that created The Boardroom, an exclusive high limit poker lounge, along with partnering with the World Poker Tour.

Ray Stefanelli, Director of Poker Marketing for Borgata, did not respond to with a comment at first and later denied reports that Strickland was asked to resign. Also denying those reports was Joe Lupo, Senior vice President of Operations for Borgata Hotel & Casino.

Strickland posted on TwoPlusTwo later that he wasn't being forced to resign and he is on the way to Isle Casino:

This is not true. I was not asked to resign. It is true that I turned in my two week notice Saturday night so that I could take the offer of Director of Poker operations at Pompano Beach Florida. Since I turned in my two week notice, I will be at the Borgata until I leave for Florida on April 6th. Please stop by and see me before I leave. Or, say hello in Florida.
