Pump Poker and the OPU

The Online Player’s Union (OPU) has the following statement on their website:


“Online Players Union is an independent watchdog (directory) and information service not (*owned by) any casino or sports book.”

It has come to my attention that Pump Poker, and Money Pump, is owned by Damian Dunlap, owner of the OPU. The dot com for Pump Poker uses a “domain by proxy”. The dot net is registered to Damian.

If you were to go to the OPU at this time, Damian and the staff are heavily promoting Pump Poker, yet they are acting like they don’t know who owns it and just happened to find this awesome poker site/casino/sportsbook and rave about it. Why are all of the moderators acting as shills for Damian? Why all of the deception and secrecy? It appears that some of the staff from the OPU are posing as staff for Pump Poker also.

I believe that it is a real conflict of interest for a (self-proclaimed) watchdog site. I’m very concerned about the reasons for the deception.

Beware of Pump Poker and beware of the OPU.

Why don't you come right out and say who you are?

“Online Players Union is an independent watchdog (directory) and information service not (*owned by) any casino or sports book.”
That is pretty much standard language, and us promoting a poker room does not indicate that we are owned by any poker room or casino.

It has come to my attention that Pump Poker, and Money Pump, is owned by Damian Dunlap, owner of the OPU. The dot com for Pump Poker uses a “domain by proxy”. The dot net is registered to Damian.
It has come to your attention??? Can you show me which law is broken by us owning a .net domain name? And where is your proof that Damian Dunlap owns pump poker or money pump?
The dot com for Pump Poker uses a “domain by proxy”.
So what?
The dot net is registered to Damian
Again, so what? The poker room is aware of this, and they have no problem with it. Why do you?

If you were to go to the OPU at this time, Damian and the staff are heavily promoting Pump Poker, yet they are acting like they don’t know who owns it and just happened to find this awesome poker site/casino/sportsbook and rave about it.
Ummm....have you ever heard of a media buy? We promote several casinos and poker rooms. But because we bought the .net domain name, all of the sudden we are guilty of something sinister???


It appears that some of the staff from the OPU are posing as staff for Pump Poker also.
HEY scumbag....you better damn well have proof of that! Because I can PROVE otherwise!

I believe that it is a real conflict of interest for a (self-proclaimed) watchdog site. I’m very concerned about the reasons for the deception.

HUH!!!!!! Why is this such a big concern to you??? Do you own a poker room and are concerned about some competition? Or are you part of the small group of people that read our site everyday and complain about it?

GET A LIFE! PLEASE!!!!!!!!


And please. for the love of god, can a moderator here PLEASE remove my partners personal info.

Hi all,

Please bear in mind forum rule 1.8

I don't mind members having concerns on how websites are run, but let's keep it mellow, okay?

Thanks!

That's a very serious statement IF it is true, but I don't see it substantiated anywhere in this anonymous post, which imo reeks of a vindictive motive.

DD and I have personally never hit it off, and never will but I find this sort of cloaked accusation distasteful and unfair to say the least.

The fact that the accuser does not have the guts to come out into the open with it helps me discount the claims he (or she?) makes.

Ditto. You need to provide proof of ownership before going on a rant. Do not abuse this board with misguided postings. Thanks.

Let's pretend for a moment that Casinomeister and staff all have signatures promoting 32Red, and 32Red staff come here to thank Casinomeister and staff for all of the business being sent their way from this site (that is what is going on at the OPU with Pump Poker).

Then a "whois" is done on 32Red and we discover 32Red is registered to Bryan Bailey. It would all be cool? No one would question anything or be upset at anything?

Things would sit better in my mind if Damian and staff had just "fessed up" and told the members that the OPU (or Damian himself) owned or were part of Pump Poker.

Disclaimer: ;) I have no intention to start a portal war, nor do I have any hidden agendas

However I am concerned that an organisation such as the OPU which is designed to represent players, should be truly transparent, and there should be no hidden motives or agendas.

There are a number of coincidences here , which I would like to see clarified by either Damian or Mark.

What is the true nature of the relationship between the OPU and Pump Poker?

Also why is the ownership information for Pump Poker marked as private? Surely a trustworthy and transparent operation with nothing to hide would not need to hide this information from prospective players.

Why were the domains pumppoker.com and pumppoker.net registered on the same day - if there was no prior discussion between the OPU and Pump Poker how did Damian know that this domain extension was available? They are also both on the same nameserver.

The evidence points to a link between the two organizations - the question is why would they not just transparent with their members instead of handling it as they have.

I think that is remarkable but not conclusive. Remarkable enough for a further and more specific and clarifying denial from the OPU, perhaps.

You seem to be doing a lot of work on this, Heerlen - is your interest purely casual or do you have an axe to grind in this like the instigator of this thread?

There was a post a little earlier asking some pertinent questions for clarity, and perhaps Mark would return and address those points, which in turn would presumably give the lie to the anonymous people at work here?

Ouch! I guess that takes it from remarkable to very suspicious!

All the more reason for a clarifying statement.

It takes very little time to do a whois search. I love a good mystery!

As far as the axe to grind question, I don't really care for DD and I am disappointed because I thought that the OPU was going to be something good for the gambling industry and unfortunately, it isn't turning out that way. Other than that though, I don't give them much thought.

Theres too many coincidences here for it to be nothing.I think the questions Pam7122 posted there are good ones.Even the posts by "Ashley" and Damian....both have the same spelling errors......basteball No depoist

Re. misspellings: Spammers use them all the time to pass through filters, like most all of us know all too well.

Also, site owners often use them in SEO efforts or at pay per click engines to get those visitors who misspell what they are searching for in the search engines.

Both people could have copied some text to post that was originally purposefully misspelled.

This thread has obviously been instigated by someone who wants Damian's axx, Damian has certainly offended a lot of people. Because of that, I take it with a grain of salt, or maybe a whole salt shaker.

As far as the facts regarding pump poker, it does look like Damian might have a hand in it to some degree or other.

There are all kinds of creative deals regarding financing and ownership of poker rooms as well as all other gambling properties.

Due to the special situation with the OPU, this financial relationship does need to be made transparent now, if there is one.

I just wish I didn't have such a bad taste in my mouth about the motivations of the original poster.
