October 8, 2009 - Why anyone would play at Full
Tilt Poker does indeed blow my mind, not to mention my
eyeballs, stomach and heart. It seriously is unfathomable to
me. But then again, what you don't know, can't hurt, right?
I guess as long as you continue never knowing about it.
That said, I hope there are people reading this. Are you
out there? Is that an echo I hear? I mean, I don't care if
nobody reads the rest of my blogs, and for that matter, they
probably don't. But if you can hear me, if there is anyone
alive out there, READ THIS!
If you are already familiar with Full Tilt, you likely
know about the cheating scandal that went down there shortly
after the huge scandal at Absolute Poker. What, maybe less
than two years ago. By the way, did you know that Full Tilt
and Absolute are owned and managed by the same group?
Coincidence? I think not.
Now, I'm not one to just go and blast every online casino
and poker room who gets complained about. But when there is
hard evidence, and the poker room has no choice but to admit
the wrong doing and reimburse players hundreds of thousands
of dollars, well then, that's for real folks. And yes that
really happened at Full Tilt Poker. And yes, it's happened
Only this time around, Full Tilt Poker acted first by
deleting the accounts of pro players, Larry Kennedy and Greg
Omotoy, claiming the pair were colluding with poker bots to
beat out players to the tune of $80,000 in winnings, which
Full Tilt Poker apparently seized. I know what you're
thinking. But that's not Full Tilt Poker's fault. But here's
the kicker. Immediately following the seizure, Kennedy and
Omotoy returned fire, filing a lawsuit against Full Tilt
Poker and citing several big name pros (who just so happen
to have ownership stake in Full Tilt), including Chris
Ferguson, Phil Ivey and Howard Lederer.
Kennedy and Omotoy, who apparently helped with developing
Full Tilt Poker's software code, say that Chris Ferguson
took part in developing poker bots to fill tables and steal
player's money. In other words, fake poker players. Those
are some serious accusations, and I wouldn't be surprised if
they prove true. It sounds to me like there was a falling
amidst "owners" of Full Tilt Poker, and became a story of
"who pulls the trigger first".
Now, if I read this, I wouldn't think twice about playing
at Full Tilt Poker and Absolute Poker, especially
considering there are many other poker rooms with impeccable
reputations and credentials. Poker Stars is one of them. And
considering their size and free cash bonuses, they get the
Poker Room recommendation here at Online Casino Suite.
