Hearing some interesting Full Tilt Poker news from our across the pond sources.
While we’re waiting on full confirmation, the sources are solid and both points seem inevitable, so here’s what we’re hearing.
:: Ray Bitar is out. Word is that on Sunday Ray Bitar was voted out as CEO of Full Tilt. This shouldn’t come as a shocker as we’d imagine any potential investor (i.e. the Ivey White KnightTM group) doesn’t want to buy a company and have someone indicted by the United States government running it, but from what we’re hearing, it’s happened and he’s out. Backing the tip up, we’ve spoken to Tilt employees who say there has been no direct communication from Bitar since at least Sunday (although to be fair, there hasn’t been a ton before that either).
:: AGCC to unsuspend license. Some Tilt employees are being told that Alderney will unsuspend the company’s gaming license by the weekend, possibly as early as Friday. While Tilt and its prospective buyer are in discussions with the AGCC, it still seems early (to us, at least) to unsuspend the license. However, from what we hear, Tilt is preparing for it and has already moved its DNS back to Alderney.
As we hear more info, we’ll update this post.
