About fucking time.
Full Tilt Poker CEO Ray Bitar has surrendered to U.S. authorities in New York today.
Along with the previous Black FridayTM charges against him, Bitar was hit with a new indictment. The new filing claims that Bitar knowingly misled Full Tilt customers after Black Friday in order to instill confidence that Full Tilt was still “safe and secure” as well as lying to the AGCC regarding Tilt’s ability to do business.
And oh yeah, despite running Full Tilt into the ground, Bitar is alleged to have paid himself $3M in compensation AFTER Black Friday.
Read the indictments in full, as well as an email Bitar sent to Full Tilt employees, here.
