Oh Look! More Speculative News about the Full Tilt Sale!

The trend of a new speculative news report in poker media regarding Full Tilt Poker’s sale to Groupe Bernard Tapie (GBT) continues as PocketFives.com reports Laurent Tapie, managing director of GBT, has relocated to Dublin, home of Full Tilt headquarters, to oversee the acquisition and relaunch of the once second-largest online poker room. According to the article which sites an unnamed source, the acquisition is “a done deal” and “should be signed next week”.

It will be interesting to see if this latest update follows the months-long trend of news about the Full Tilt sale failing to come to fruition. Most recently, EGR Magazine reported that the deal would be finalized by the end of last week. This prediction proved false when that deadline was missed days ago.

In February, it appeared the deal was in jeopardy on news that former sponsored pros of the site owed $16.5 million in outstanding debts.

The poker world has continuously been left to scratch their heads throughout the lengthy negotiation between GBT and Full Tilt. Poker media outlets continue to make reports based on speculation passed down from unnamed sources. Although this onslaught of unreliable reporting has been frustrating, it does represent vastly more information regarding the sale of assets and repayment of players worldwide than has been offered from the Full Tilt Poker camp itself. It remains anyone’s guess as to if and when this deal will be completed as clearly little faith should be placed in the rumors and deadlines being distributed by various poker media outlets.
