Merge Poker is claiming they are no longer obligated to pay funds to PIC Club after severing their contract agreement.  PIC Club is a payment platform that has stated Merge owes over $100,000 in fees.

Anthony Taylor, CEO of Merge Poker, supplied Gambling911.com with his official statement on Wednesday following reports that they were refusing payment to PIC Club Poker:

"It has been brought to my attention, via comments in a public forum, that there is some confusion regarding a relationship we have with a payments provider. To be clear, it was Merge Gaming, who served notice on our agreement with Pic Club, and the contract ceased to be in affect on October 18, 2009 at 11:59:59 PM (EST). The reasoning behind this is a matter of private record. Merge Gaming attempted to resolve the issue brought on by Pic Club, one of its principals and one of its members, and without resolution, felt it was in the best interest of our customers to end this relationship immediately.

"It is regrettable that I have to respond to the statements of the past week but our hand has been forced. We've cancelled our agreement to protect our players, our network partners and our reputation going forward."

Chuck Kidd, CEO of PIC Club, responded:  "The contract was ceased by Merge only after we set a deadline and threatened to cut them off if they didn't pay."

That deadline was set for this past Friday and no payment was made.

Kidd has in his corner a number of individuals from the Costa Rican online gambling sector who have maintained stellar reputations over the years.
