According to a post by Joe Sebok on Poker Road.com, Shronk passed away on Sunday of natural causes.
Sebok, who heads Poker Road, wrote, “The poker community lost a fallen brother this past Sunday when Justin Shronk passed away.
He had built a tremendous number of friendships, which isn’t surprising since he was always the first to lend a helping hand to anyone in need.” Shronk was just 27.
While in the hospital, Shronk’s wit took center stage on his Twitter page.

The Carbon Poker Last Man Standing promotion starts May 1st, 2012 and lasts for 60 days (2 months) during which players earn as many VIP Points as they can by playing at Carbon Poker’s real money games.Making this contest a bit more exciting (and competitive) than other types of points races (or leader board races), Carbon Poker is setting a certain quota of VIP points that players must earn by certain target dates in order to be allowed to continue in the competition.Players failing to meet those quotas will be eliminated from the running.Gavin Smith had the unfortunate task of informing the 300 players in the field that Shronk had passed away.In addition to Poker Road, Shronk had also worked with Card Player on the company’s “Circuit” show and with Poker News, establishing himself in the industry.
