Another issue has shown up in the sale process of Full Tilt Poker. In total, a group of 19 players owe the company about 16.5 million dollars. Just to mention a few of them: Phil Ivey, Erick Lindgren, Barry Greenstein and David Benyamine. Groupe Bernard Tapie, the upcoming owners of Full Tilt Poker, are currently working out repayments plans for all the players.
Laurent Tapie, the son of Bernard Tapie (the founder of Groupe Bernard Tapie), said in an interview the other day that some of the players already have accepted to pay back money owed to the company, and some of the repayment plans will shortly be settled.
According to what representatives from Group Bernard Tapie said earlier this year, these outstanding debts might create a serious threat for the deal to be completed if it's not regulated in time.
