Full Tilt Poker Relaunch: Poker Pros Tweet ReactionsNovember 7, 2012 1:53 pm
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. Here are a selection of some of the comments coming from the poker community:
“At $50/$100 PLO now at FTP. it feels so good, i have been waiting for this for sooo long.”
“@REALGeoNio: @TomDwan Why are you not playing on @FullTilt yet?!?!? Please go now…” I’m in the us for the next week. Will play soon..Seems like doj should’ve made an announcement or something today- since non-americans can now get paid. Did they and I missed it?
