Full Tilt Poker Relaunch: Poker Pros Tweet Reactions

Full Tilt Poker Relaunch: Poker Pros Tweet Reactions After an absence of 16 months, Full Tilt Poker finally relaunched its real-money offering on November 6th. However, instead of trying to immediately withdraw the $184 million funds allocated for ‘Rest Of The World’ players, most seemed eager to resume where they left off and within just 2 hours the poker room had over 40,000 customers playing at its tables.
As well as those able to play, there were many more looking for ways to actually get money onto the Full Tilt site. Needless to say, twitter and the poker forums were abuzz with activity as people gave their opinions and experiences of Full Tilt’s much anticipated re-launch.
