Eric “Rizen” Lynch Online Poker Employee of The Month – Lock Poker August 2011

Eric “Rizen” Lynch

This month, Gambling911.com has nominated Lock Poker Manager Eric “Rizen” Lynch the “Online Poker Employee of the Month”, and with good reason.  *Note:  Mr. Rizen acts as an independent consultant for Lock Poker and is not a direct employee of the firm.

If you haven’t visited the TwoPlusTwo.com dedicated Lock Poker thread, we urge you to do so. 

There, Mr. Lynch spends his time corresponding with Lock Poker and Casino customers, answering all of their questions to the best of his ability.  Gambling911.com has a strict policy that forbids any of us from gambling online, however, if I were an online gambler, I would feel especially comfortable playing at Lock based on Rizen’s interaction with customers (We also know the owner, which gives us an extra warm fuzzy feeling inside). 

Sure they are one of our big sponsors, but we’ve also had similar praise for the CEO of Hero Poker, a company that does not advertise here and who regularly engages his customers on an open forum.

It has been a rough go in the online poker world over these last four months, but when the primary complaint on the Lock Poker Forum is “Why is it taking so long to open the Lock Poker Merchandise Store”, I think we have a winner (the much anticipated Lock Store is due to open this week for the record).  Lock has gone above and beyond these past few months and everyone anxiously awaits their re-entry back into the United States (note: the Lock Casino does accept US customers)

It’s also important to note that the Lock Poker thread is one of the few appearing on the Two Plus Two forum where Gambling911.com does not get bashed.  For the record, Two Plus Two is an excellent resource for the poker community. 

"I am personally looking forward not only the opportunity to continue to work with the outstanding LockPRO team," said Lynch upon his hiring "but also to interact with the Lock players and really explore what we can do to improve on all levels. My dream has been to really get involved in the daily operations and have a serious impact on how things are done. I'm excited have the opportunity to bring my unique insight as a professional poker player to the table to help Lock continue to innovate.”

"We are determined to lead this industry in product, service and player experience," says Jennifer Larson, CEO of Lock Poker. "Eric brings the insight, passion and personality that we really need and that this role demands. I cannot think of a better way to take Lock to the next level than with one of the world's best online poker players at the helm!”

Gambling911.com applauds Riszen for a job well done and his efforts have not gone unnoticed here.  We look forward to meeting the Lock Poker team in Milan, Italy at EiG later in September.
