Lock Poker is one of the more popular online poker sites for players in the United States currently, and this is for quite a few reasons. Lock Poker is a part of the Merge Network, which also has Carbon Poker, and is one of the few networks who still allow online poker players from the US to play! Currently, Lock Poker features one of the stronger lists of poker pros outside of the biggest sites out there like PokerStars. Their current roster consists of a combination of well-known players, and also just some excellent players including Chris Moorman, Leo Margets, Eric “Rizen” Lynch, Bryan “PrimordialAA” Pellegrino, and Brett Jungblut.
We can now add one more name to the team LockPRO Elite as of yesterday, since they have decided to add another well-known poker pro in Melanie Weisner. Weisner has been incredible in the online poker tournament world over the past few years, and is considered one of the top heads-up Sit-and-Go players out there. Weisner was a pro on the well-known site Full Tilt Poker, so she definitely had her choice of many different games to choose from, and she ranked near the top in all types of different categories for Sit-and-Go’s in 2010. Her overall rankings for any stakes in any games featured her as 20th overall out of any player out there. As far as her heads up game goes, she was 9th in the rankings for heads-up Hold’em games between $301 and $1,000, and in overall heads-up games she was 14th overall when it came to Hold’em.
When you really take into the account the total number of players that these numbers include, the fact that she was consistently in the top 20 is very impressive. She hasn’t been on the live poker tournament circuit much until this past year, but when she got on it, she brought in results. In total she has won over $388,002 on the live poker tournament circuit, which included a 33rd place finish at the World Series of Poker Europe Main Event, a third place finish at an event at the European Poker Tour London, and a fourth place finish at the EPT London in another event. She has also won two events in her career as well.
She’ll be a fun player to watch on Lock Poker in 2012, and hopefully in the coming years after that as well.
