As Booth explains it, Full Tilt had him on salary where he was “promised a certain amount [of cash] a month, rakeback” and more. This agreement was based on a handshake deal with Bitar, who handles Tilt player sponsorships. But with Booth in his “igloo” up north (awesomely his words, not ours) and out of sight, Tilt just stopped paying him his monthly deal. Since nothing was papered, he doesn’t have much recourse.
This is why you need agents, btw.
Booth made it clear he’s got nothing against the Iveys, Lederers, and Blochs of the Tilt world, as he doubts they know anything about his bum deal. But he did say he thinks Bitar is an “idiot.”
