lol, removing his red pro status for a 1 month after they made 4 millions from isildur... i guess for it was worth it. they should punish him harder, a normal player would probably get banned from full tilt. well, as someone who is used to play with multiple accounts he will still have another account there

As a red pro he would get 100% rakeback. So banning him makes them some money, if he shold continue to play.
Looks like Hasting got his red pro status removed too.
In this instance, the money involved will require a lawyer and at least 1 lawsuit. FTP, I assume, will be looking into their program and making refinements to prevent a reoccurence in the near future. Personally, I can't stand cheaters in anything. All the cheaters here should have been banned at least 6 months and have a complete review of their histories to prove that this is an isolated case or a trend with other players as well. No poker site wants bad publicity ( Absolute and Ultimate Bet) for there is nothing to gain and everything to lose. FTP will need to do more to fix this problem
