Rumors of layoffs at Full Tilt Poker

Things are still neutral on Full Tilt Poker (FTP). Recently, several sources have relayed information that several U.S. employees were dismissed from their employer. Other rumueur adds that international Department, FTP should or will be deleted ("this rumor comes from a tweet from Nahuel Ponce, Argentine journalist for ESPN who wrote:" "Full Tilt has suspended all activities of his international Department.) Ouch").

The sources include Bluff Magazine and Wicked Chops. These sites defend themselves by claiming repeatedly checking their information. The laid-off employees received their wages for their work after April 15, 2011, date on which FTP had been closed in the United States following Black Friday.
Full Tilt Poker has a new worldwide license

This is the Kahawake Gaming Commission of Quebec which affirmed the new: FTP has been granted a second license of games (a second, in addition to that which is suspended we hear). The Commission issued a statement: "the Commission replied and approved the application for a second license of games 'Secondary Client Provider Authorization' ("Secondary CPA") to Kolyma Corporation A.V.V. ("Kolyma"), operating as a"Full Tilt Poker", effective August 1, 2011, for a period of (2) years".

The Commission also contradicts the rumor that FTP was intending to move its servers to the Canada.

Despite some good news, as mentioned above, everything is still on the neutral and it is still not possible to play poker online on FTP (or withdraw its funds, for those interested).

When the question of investors, the news is not very encouraging either because they are, at the very least, discreet.  Despite this new Full Tilt Poker (such as PokerCollectif had already spoken you) paid the £ 250,000 (CAD$ 400,000) in license fees to the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC).
