Deal Between Pokerstars / FullTilt Close to Completion

22 June 2012


Last April came to light what could be the next bombastic news in the poker world since the Black Friday.
Back then became public real interest of PokerStars in the acquisition of its greatest competitor till black Friday, FullTilt Poker.

Little has been heard so far since what was known in social media as #RedTuesday and we are fast approaching July.

According to a publication of today, PokerStars is still working hard to close the final details of the agreement, and seems that this could be officially announced very soon.

One of the points of disagreement which apparently made the process take longer than expected was ghost eChecks deposits made by some players. Technically, these players may have been overtaking FullTilt Poker, knowing that these deposits are not withdrawn from their personal bank accounts in weeks, giving players the chance to either increase the deposit or simply order the bank the cancelation of the eCheck processing. Apparently these deposits were not correctly accounted for and is not clear if these payers with money on they’re accounts owe money or not to FullTilt.

One of the biggest evidences that the process is in final stage, is the fact that PokerStars is hiring for various departments that would deal with FullTilt poker, and also sending trained personnel to Dublin, to begin the necessary training. So that once the agreement is complete and made official, the platform would be prompt to start operating at full gear.

Therefore, and as rumored among sources close to negotiation, the deal is 99% close to completion, lets hope this 1% missing don’t take much longer!
