Firstly it was said that Full Tilt was sold to Gillete Corp. After that, it was said that Pokerstars was about to buy it. Finally, the cruel reality. More than one year waiting for our money. What's happening with it!!? I started getting tired and upset. Is nobody in prison yet?? What a shame!

Hi DaMessiah666!

Tired and fucked. If someday FTP give us the money we must pay a nice 25% of our bank to the goverment.

The poker world is a joke. I see some of the owners of FTP walking, and playing, in big live MTTs... and nobody says nothing about FTP. Shame, really.

Really?? Humm ... it's not fair. In fact, I read in other forums that The Tresuary Department will be able to review what we did in poker for the last 10 years!! They are inviting us to go out from Spain. No future here

Full Tilt is not the first poker room to go bust, and in most cases the players lost all, or at least most, of their money. Maybe the deal with Stars will change things here, but i am still sceptical.

Try to forget that you had some money,you never see them back.Is a saying that to take money from smart guys was invented Stock market and for fools lottery was enough.Poker is a source of income for greedy states,so expekt worst for the future

very well said- at first when news appeared on full tilt they were making one feel excited about all stuff, but with the whole thing dragging on for so long, it is beginning to feel like: "ahh full tilt, yeah maybe they will be back someday" i thing the whole thing should have been solved quicker Worship

im sick of the whole thing now!
i think the doj should of excepted gbt's offer. no people wouldnt be able to withdraw their money straight away but at least the site would have been up and running again by now and people would be playing their way to withdrawing.

it totally sucks. i hope it gets sorted soon.
im just glad i only had $100 on there and not anymore.

Was hoping for something, because I don't like PS, fed up with Party, and end up almost not playing at all this year.
I check every week for news, but fed up now.
By the time it happens all Govnments will have locked everything down.
In fact it has more or less happened with Spain joining the club this month in the Government "Grab from All" European Stakes.
Disgusted and have more or less given up on the whole thing now. Sad

Forget about it Jack, if we get our dosh back all well and good, but my $1800 (its been that long it may be more) is lost if i get it back great bigger bankroll for me. Try playing other sites like 888(plenty of fish a lot of bad poker players) or SkyPoker (not sure if they allow european players) Plenty of good high stake players, but low stakes easy money. Their Bounty Hunter MTTs are fantastic no other site does Bounty's (Knockouts) like Sky. Big Smile

When cases involves monstruous amounts of capital, usually everything in the Law tend to become more slower... Don't worry, a big country like USA will not let this pass without compensating the losers (read "those who had money there and lost it because of the huge and complex scheme behind the company" Blink.

I'd love to play 888 and a bunch of others, but the Belgian Govt is publishing lists of all the sites we're NOT allowed to play at and adding to it regularly.
They can't stop us right now, they say, but we have been warned that they are illegal!! and fines are HUGE. Scare tactics but definitely not worth the risk.

I liked 888 and it was easy money, but shortly after I signed up there and quadrupled my deposit I had to shut my account down.
In addition to most of the sites where I had an account.
Saw the list in February and had to shut down almost all my sites that week.
Basically nothing left except Party (they mention only Bwin Confused ), PKR and PS.
Very disappointing, this whole business... Sad

It was sometime that i didnt thought about Full Tilt until now seeing this thread.
Probably the best thing you have to do is to start believing it will not reopen
and forget about completely.
A life mishap which you need to put behind Smile

I think that the chances of full tilt poker to be back online are now very slim considering GBT is out of the deal...

As it has been rumored i think the only option would be for stars to buy it but thats a really long shot.

Pokerstars made a great move in his bussiness breaking the GBT deal. I think for Pokerstars FTP is a gift. They must pay around 750-1000 millions to the USA goverment so, why not pay a little more and kill the 2nd big?

The last I heard was on the news a couple nights ago and of course it was bad news. Full Tilt is out even more money due to they were sponsers of MA Fighting. All the DOJ did was ruin another business that would have been fine without the U.S. Government stepping in. Yes, behind closed doors they were in debt, but they would have pulled through with all the players and it's kinda like a rolling ball. The money was coming and going out. People were making a living from FT, not just poker players, but their employees. The U.S. stomped on families and like usual tied up a business to put them so far behind they could or can't dig back out.
