Full Tilt Poker traffic now routed through Kahnawake Mohawk Territory  0   
"One day after its license to operate an online poker room was suspended by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, rumors are swirling that Full Tilt Poker may be looking to obtain a license from the Kahnawake Gaming Commission (KGC) to resume games.

While the IP address for www.fulltiltpoker.com is still located in Ireland, a trace route for the IP address shows that traffic is routed through the Kahnawake Mohawk Territory. The final destination was masked, as the trace route did not terminate, but was unable to display the next destination.

Given the nature of Internet traffic, it is highly unlikely that traffic would be routed through the Kahnawake Mohawk Territory unintentionally.

No one from the KGC was immediately available for comment.

Full Tilt was at one time licensed by the KGC. But in 2007, when the U.K. released new rules requiring online casinos, sportsbooks and poker rooms to be licensed by white-listed jurisdictions in order to run advertisements, the Kahnawake Mohawk Territory wasn't one of the white-listed jurisdictions. Full Tilt applied for and received a license from Alderney, which is located just off the northern coast of France, thus allowing the company to continue to market itself to a U.K. audience.

Like Full Tilt, the KGC has seen its share of controversy. Both UB.com and Absolute Poker are licensed by the KGC, and cheating scandals in those poker rooms — combined with the lack of a timely response by the KGC — stained the reputation of the licensing authority.

Full Tilt has had problems meeting its financial obligations since many of its assets were seized and its owner, Ray Bitar, was indicted by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York on money laundering and bank fraud charges on April 15.

According to the KGC's regulations, corporations applying for an online gaming license must have "a good business reputation, sound current financial position and financial background."

American players still have no idea when they might be paid the balance of their accounts, and players outside the U.S. have also reported problems receiving withdrawals.

Even if Full Tilt is able to find a new jurisdiction willing to grant them a license, it may be difficult for the company to find a payment processor. Moneybookers announced yesterday that they would no longer allow players to deposit money on the site, as Full Tilt had been blocking player withdrawals to the payment processor."

One thing is sure, once it opens i will hit withdrawal asap. I'll come back if the site would be bought by someone else, and they will keep have rush and multi tntry tournaments, plus moneybookers as a deposit/withdrawal option.

I'm surprised they didn't mask that hop, if they weren't prepared to make a statement.

check it out if anyone is interested.. You can actually see it for yourself. If you open command prompt (or terminal on MAC).

Hit the windows key on your keyboard - then press "r" while the windows key is down.. This brings up the 'run' dialog. Type "cmd" and hit enter. This will take you to DOS

now type:

tracert www.fulltiltpoker.com

and hit enter. And you can see the traffic indeed goes into Kahnawake territory !
