One small step for Groupe Bernard Tapie, but a big step for world wide online poker community who used to play at FT and those who, although not playing there, have heard so much about it in the last months that now feel great appetite to go playing there. It can only end well!

That is why they bought full tilt poker. A lot of people loved the platform! I probably won't reinstall full tilt but I have to agree the program itself was a good one.

Well, lets wait and see, first they will have to apply, second they will have to pay tax, third there is a risk of bird(but I doubt that will happen)

Is it just me that thinks this all stinks.

No one has come out of this with any form of credibility, least of all the DOJ who appear to have been on nothing more than a complete witchhunt, and rather than dealing with the gambling issues they claimed were the rational behind their actions, they in fact were simply on a witchhunt against certain individuals associated with Full Tilt.

Whether or not they were worthy of such a witchhunt is open to speculation, but given the lack of action against other sites and the way that Full Tilt has been the only site to actually go under because of Black Friday, it seems to me that all this stuff by the DOJ was more of a method to get at Full Tilt owners.

To me, this all stinks to high heaven, and I personally wouldnt trust Full Tilt again for the subsequent revelations of whats gone on. I have no sympathy at all for them, but on the other hand its clear that the DOJ marked Full Tilts cards and they set out to get them. It had nothing to do with the players or the laws. They just wanted FUll Tilt out of the way, and by the way its gone, they've succeeded.

Well, yer, they way it has gone has shown its not about justice, should just be Department Of...
Due to the deal made it looks like FTP will be back in action and owners just get a little scare along the way, yep they will stay quite wealthy, in time re-own FTP IMO, and no come uppance.
But there is a lot more than meets the eye, the DOJ are just as corrupt IMO, this was an attack on the US players, not the site owners(operators) and they are happy to keep money that is not theirs, even spend our money saying its all for us!! Well thanks for the favour.
I find it very odd that they claimed to seize(forget actual figures) 300mill+ then after deal is made/in process they remembered it was only around 150 mill.
What about the assets from the owners, surly owed to the players.
How can they slag FTs accounts when they don't get their own right.
Just money rape, and only the players will foot the bill.

I'm kind of skeptical about your "conspiration theory" but well, I don't know much about the case. At least if the players get refunded, it will be a very good thing.

All is see in the so called news is : blah,blah,blah,blah,blah........

The only NEWS for me regarding FT will be this.

"Full Tilt poker is up and running. All players can log in now and cash out their money!!!"

Well I guess time will tell now! I would like to get my small BR from the site, but I'd rather see the site up and running again. I miss playing at the site and if the U.S. wants to tax U.S. players on cashouts then sobeit. I mean isn't that w3hat this is about? U.S. GOV getting what they feel is their share. Crooks! They tax our pay every week then everything we purchase after that. So I can't play poker without them wanting their so called share plus from the site itself.
