After this agreement, I guess there may be other identities who still have to pronounce before FT can restart action again. This are good news, things are going fast, but calm down. I just hope BRM can get some good promos for us with FT when they get back to business, that would rock!

I read this on the 14th, over a week ago, from sources close to the matter and blar blar, the whole report was full of "expected" etc. It also goes on to say after the sale there willl be a 4 week build up, so that's 6 weeks then even after sale. I don't see what's so hard about the sale anymore, to me its just stalling for time for whatever reason.

I just hope things work out so they can make a come back in the electronic poker world. I know they owe players money, but whether or not we get it will depend on the DOJ. The DOJ may require taxes be paid on any monies withdrawn although the truth be known we should have been paid interest on the money.
My biggest thing with FT is they had it going on. They had better variety of games at all levels. Hell, even there freerolls were better when it comes to variety. I enjoyed playing RAZZ and RUSH poker to. You would think some of these poker sites that are operating would have implemented some of the gaming structures FT dominated in. There's not one site operating that can compete with the offers FT once had or the amount of players. I don't care what's said. If it weren't for the DOJ jumping in on the #1 site they'd still be #1. There's not a close 2nd out there at this time!

yes my $0.03 will be back- and the first thing i'm gonna do is apply bankroll management so that in three years my bankroll would safely grow to an amazing amount of $0.07 my only concern is that full tilt wouldn't go bust by the time i am attempting to reach this amazing goal
