Players Still in the Dark After Alderney Hearing on Full Tilt

Online Poker, 2011-07-26, by Ozone

A day that some were saying was the most important for the poker world since Black Friday turned out to be a lot of nothing. The Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) held a hearing today with Full Tilt Poker, the site whose license they revoked on June 29th. The closed-door meeting ended with AGCC publicly stating that, "in [the] best interests of FTP customers," they are giving the beleaguered site until no later than September 15th to get a potential deal in order.

Full Tilt is allegedly in talks with investors to sell part or possibly all of their assets. The request by Full Tilt lawyers to prohibit media from accessing the meeting was granted by AGCC.

The result of today's meeting falls nicely in line with Full Tilt's modus operandi since Black Friday: keep everyone, players included, in the dark and guessing. Hopefully the poker world will have some real answers with regards to the couple hundred million trapped on Full Tilt by September 15th.
