Full Tilt under investigation

Tags: chris ferguson, free money, full tilt poker, howard lederer, investigation, no deposit bonus.
Posted on 07 April 2010 by "T".

The poker giant Full Tilt Poker is being investigated by a federal jury in Manhattan at the moment. The main owners of Full Tilt Poker, Howard Lederer and Chris Ferguson are 2 named persons in the investigation. They are accused of money-laundering and breaking the american gambling laws.

According to Nelson Rose, an author of books on gambling law, the government is trying to make example on Howard (right) and Ferguson (left) because they are both 2 well-known faces in the poker world.

Full Tilt denies that they have been breaking any american gaming law as they claim that their business in run from Alderney, an Island in the English channel. We will probably have to wait a few weeks or even months before the jury has completed the investigation.

The $25 no deposit at Full Tilt Poker is finally back! Don't miss out on this great offer!

i dont know if this link will work, you can google full tilt manhattan da and get another link to the article.

so, sources say da is investigating full tilt. quite frankly, this would suck but ivey, lederer and feguson, etc. are most likely the best defendants we can get on this issue. bring it on you misguided fuks imo.

Since UIGEA has been challanged by poker communities as being unconstitutional, the government is trying to sway public opinion back into their favor by trying to prove that online sites are criminal. Part of their campaign is to have a high profile case against a well known site. Just wouldn't have the same effect to go after BigBet or Doyle's Room since they are small in comparison to FTP. FTP has also been the most vocale in fighting the legislation so makes sense to go after the loudest critic.

Lots of US players will be pissed if FTP closes their doors to US players. what i can see now is these people from the us might migrate to other countries so that they'll be able to continue playing poker. i know some people who moved from the us to other countries just to be able to play.

best place to come for them would be the UK for the tax reasons on gambling that would be good we would get them all on the poker shows here more often doing battle with europe

I must have been in a new bubble just lately... i didnt know anything about this...
Oh well im sure it wont make any difference to FTP they are getting bigger and bigger this news will just add to there fortune im sure.
Also it'll bring FTP to the front of the poker news so they will then get even more players... new sign ups ect.
Any publicity is good publicity... or so they say.

I thought youre gonna say full tilt was rigged. Is it? I play heads up on sit&go and i win my first 5 games than i lose 5 games. That a rule. So i just lost the rake (aprox 2$). On losing games i get very good cards before the flop and nothing down, and on winning games i get like 7 2 or 83 and always win.
 Alelkz1618/04/2010 20:57:32 GMT
ok if the americans are banned from the ftp, then it would be easier to win but the site would be smaller than ipoker and sometimer a dont find enought player at the ipoker network

what they should be investigating is how rigged full tilt is . i would love to take a bat to the machines that " randomly'' deal the cards. ive never seen so many flushes overr flushes or bigger full houses over smaller full houses or runner runner flushes in my life!!!! its almost comical
 JASintra23/04/2010 15:49:00 GMT

..Yeah, it sucks bigtime when you see stuff like this happen, doesn't it?.. but people keep playing there, and the pros keep playing there vast amounts, and after a while everyone seems to forget these comical bad beats and they keep feeding the FTP machine with cash... not to say that the same hilarious things don't happen on all the other sites... it's just that FTP is so ahead in giving its players what it promised to give in the first place: T I L T!!!!!! Worship Worship Big Smile
One and only advice I can give to anybody: PLAY FREEROLLS - YOU GOT NOTHIN' TO LOSE!... (whoa!.. this motto is so good, I should make it a bumper sticker... lol Big Smile )
