In an interview that was released last week Patrik Antonius spoke out about the Full Tilt scandal and the money he will lose if the poker site goes bankrupt.
"This one person made an attack on me, saying I had only $100 in my account. He was right but he's not right that I'm not a very big loser in this," Antonius told the poker magazine in Cannes on Day 4 of the WSOPE Main Event.
The person Antonius is referring to is Noah "NoahSD" Stephens-Davidowitz, and Antonius is very concerned how he got his account balance and why he's telling everyone about such a confidential information.
A lot of money at risk if Full Tilt goes bankrupt
Antonius confirms that his own Full Tilt account only contains $100, but he will still lose a lot of money if Full Tilt goes under as a few players owe him more than $5 million and many of them won't be able to pay back unless Full Tilt Poker sees the daylight again.
"A lot of people owe me a lot of money and if Full Tilt goes under it's going to be very difficult for them to pay," Antonius said.
According to Antonius, one particular player owes him $2.4 million and his ability to pay back rests entirely on Full Tilt Poker continuing doing business.
Tried to cash out after Black Friday
"Full Tilt would not let me cash out after Black Friday. My manager and I were trying to contact them about why I wasn't getting cashed out and they just kept telling us there were problems. So because I was going to be in the USA for the World Series of Poker I transferred what I had to people that wanted the online money, then the entire site went down and noone could get their money off. So the people I transferred the FTP money to are refusing to pay me because it's stuck on the site and they don't see it as real money," he said.
