Full Tilt Poker Room Shut Down

Full Tilt Poker has had their gaming license and poker room is shut down.  Poker News Daily has more details, but here is enough to hold you in case you’re in a rush.

Today’s action by the AGCC is the biggest blow to Full Tilt Poker in the two and a half months since Black Friday.  In fact, many in the poker community believe it is the final dagger for the once high-flying company.  What had previously been the world’s second largest online poker room by a longshot had already lost half of its player base since Black Friday after it had to shut out all U.S. players.  Now, with poker operations completely stopped for at least a month, the company will fall into an even deeper hole.

I guess Phil Ivey‘s lawsuit may have a little mustard to it.  This can’t be a good sign for Full Tilt Poker.  At the same time I don’t think this has any adverse effect on legalization of poker in America.  I’m sure more domino’s will continue to fall.

    Full Tilt, Half Tilt, No Tilt… whats the difference?

    I remember all those poker scandals about on line tournament play and superusers able to see all hands in their entirety. Most of those celebrities just didn’t seem all that quick to come down hard on the offenders and refuse to be associated with those sites that failed to act promptly. When no one seemed to much care, the entire industry was tainted.

    So eventually the Attorney General decides to go after the biggies … well, why not? You have to be pure as the driven snow, not pure as the driven slush.
