Latest Full Tilt Poker information
The latest news regarding the troubled online poker company
As we have covered lately at latest poker news, one of the largest online poker rooms in the world, Full Tilt Poker, is in deep trouble after its gaming license was revoked more than two weeks ago. Full Tilt, one of the sites that were indicted by the FBI back in April, escaped charges for a short time, but they are now in deeper trouble than ever. The Aldernay Gambling Control Comission revoked their gaming license, an action that the French gaming comission were, at one point, also considering.
First rumors, as we’ve already covered, were stating that the large online poker company would soon switch to another gaming comission, and that would allow them to be back in business in mere hours. Those hours turned into days, and the days turned into weeks, with still no palpable result in sight. After Full Tilt Poker was supposedly bought by a group of European investors, it seemed that players would be payed, thanks to the new cash inflow.
Right now, it seems that we’re witnessing another break in Full Tilt’s favor.The AGCC has announced, ever since they suspended FTP’s license, that they would hold a public hearing that would decide the fate of the site from the AGCC’s point of view. Well, after two weeks of grueling wait, the whole matter was finally settled, when the AGCC finally announced that they will be holding the public hearing on behalf of Full Tilt Poker on the 26th of July, 2011. It will be held at the Park Plaza Victoria Hotel in London. Whether you’re a member of the press or just a person who’s interested in the development of the case, you are open to watch the discussions.
Although these discussions are obviously a great step in the direction for the re-opening of Full Tilt, this doesn’t represent a certain thing. There’s a huge task ahead for the Full Tilt Poker representatives, who are on a mission to prove that the site is worthy of having its license restored, and any more restrictions would do nothing but damage the site’s reputation and the players themselves.
What will happen, we can only guess. But more and more voices are hoping that we’re just two weeks away from Full Tilt Poker’s grand reopening, and things will return to their normal status. At this moment, only time will tell.
