Full Tilt Poker Deal Finally Agreed?

Full Tilt Poker Deal Finally Agreed?With more false dawns than a transvestites’ convention, the Full Tilt Poker saga may just have finally reached its ultimate conclusion if the report emanating from Wendeen Eolis of Poker Player Newspaper is to be believed.
Over the past 15 months, Full Tilt players have had their hopes raised many times before, only to see their chances of being repaid the $390 million they are owed come to naught in the end. This time around, confirmation of the PokerStars, Department of Justice deal being struck has been brought to us by a highly reputable source, dubbed the “grand dame of poker.” Wendeen Eolis is a serving member of the WSOP Players Advisory Council, as well as the CEO of  Wendeen Eolis Enterprises, a legal/government affairs consultancy.
In her announcement posted on Friday, Eolis claims to have heard the news from “a consistently impeccable resource” before commenting:  “..it is now safe to say announcements for public dissemination are in the works. At this point I am ready to go out on a limb; FTP customers will see their monies well in time for Christmas shopping.”
Adding further credibility to her assertion, Eolis even threw caution to the wind and started handing out congratulations via her twitter account, writing:
“I let cat out of bag at http://PokerPlayerNewspaper.com ; jubilation for FTP employees/ Dublin & FTP customers..FTP to be up (relaunched by PS) for play and payouts due FTP customers.”
Rumours about the potential PokerStars/DoJ deal first started circulating back in April almost immediately following news the Group Bernard Tapie deal had spectacularly fallen through. The turning point in the Full Tilt saga may now have been finally reached after Full Tilt’s CEO Ray Bitar handed himself over to US authorities last week to answer charges brought against him in the wake of the Black Friday indictments.
We are expecting further details of the deal to be released next week, so here’s hoping we may finally see the conclusion of this long running saga.
