DoJ Alleges that Full Tilt was “Global Ponzi Scheme”

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the situation at Full Tilt Poker is far worse than expected:

On Tuesday, the U.S. Justice Department in a civil suit accused Messrs. Lederer, Ferguson and Furst, and another director of the company behind the Full Tilt Poker website, of defrauding thousands of online poker players out of more than $300 million that is still owed to them. The government said that, in total, the 23 owners of the site had taken out $444 million in distributions over the years.

The Justice Department's civil suit against Full Tilt alleges that in 2010, Full Tilt began having trouble accepting new bets from players, thanks to U.S. efforts to crack down on payment-processing services for online gambling. But the U.S. says that Full Tilt's owners kept paying themselves millions of dollars anyway, fraudulently depleting the player funds on deposit with the company.

On Full Tilt

Take Chris Ferguson, Howard Lederer, Phil Ivy, Erik Seidel, John Juanda, Erick Lindgren, Andy Bloch, Phil Gordon and Clonie Gowen and add an innovative and fun poker client and you've got Full Tilt Poker (Full Tilt). In the last few days they've opened the doors for real money play and each of these pros will be playing a minimum of 10 hours a week there so if you want to sit down with the best and win (or lose of that matter) you can do it now.

It's worth a visit just to check out the fun and humorous avatars they have and the clean user inteface of the clients, and each pro that plays there has a custom avatar that looks like a boardwalk caricature of them. Very nice!

Good luck to them all!
