Default Full Tilt Bought by Pokerstars, Everyone is getting paid

Seems like I get the honours of making the thread

http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/29...flush-1228753/

Congrats to anyone with significant funds tied up there, I had just withdrawn 90%+ of my roll to go play live so I only have low three figures there from memory, but it's HUGE for the guys with five figs etc.

Day of celebration for those of you with a lot there, glad this saga is coming to an end, I never lost hope that tilt would end up getting bought.

Also, long live Pokerstars!

I created a PokerStars, Full Tilt buyout link and information dump page to try to organize all of the relevant and interesting information from this news. If anyone has anything worth adding to that post, please share!

We recently created a PokerTips Facebook page. If you guys wouldn't mind "liking" the top link shared on there (to the Stars/Tilt link dump/informational page), we'd appreciate it. Want to try to get some exposure towards that page since we're trying to create it as a home to all relevant resources.

It's enough to make me wish I had money on tilt.

Haha... exactly. I had $0.00 on there which was awesome all the way up until today. Now I'm a little jealous (but ultimately just really happy for) all the people I know getting a windfall of cash refunded to them.
