Tom Dwan Comments On Full Tilt Saga

Following the indictment of Full Tilt Poker by the DoJ, the site’s roster of sponsored pros were subject to a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) preventing them from speaking out about the situation facing the site.
However, this week, now that he considers his relationship with Full Tilt over, online poker superstar Tom “durrrr” Dwan has finally broken his silence in a frank interview with PokerNews. As he explains:
“I was under an NDA [non-disclosure agreement] that I never saw, but I know it was very large. …I wanted to talk about a lot of the stuff I’ve talked about for the last few days, but I felt like that would have been inappropriate. The DOJ made it easy for me because they said all the things that people had only known inside the company.”
During his interview, Tom Dwan said that he would never have signed or wished to be affiliated with Full Tilt if he had known that they didn’t have all the player deposits.
He also expressed regret that Full Tilt customers had not yet been repaid, and that the DoJ had already made it quite obvious that failure to do so would lead to prison sentences for the Full Tilt decision-makers. Tom Dwan also added:
“I think a lot of the owners should at least offer something…Most of what I’ve heard is ‘Oh, my lawyer advised me not to,’ which to me seems like bull.”
Turning his attention towards the implication for some of the sponsored pros on the site, the 25 year-old former member of Team Full Tilt said that he was bothered that a lot of people were personally angry at him and that there was a chance he’ll have to pay back the money earned while at Full Tilt, despite not even being a shareholder in the company.
Dwan also confirmed that along with other players, he received loans from Full Tilt and that he intends to repay any money loaned to him either directly to players, liquidators or investors.
As a final point, Tom Dwan said he believed the potential investor situation at Full Tilt was looking more promising than most people appreciated, and elaborating further commented:
“I don’t want to go into much detail there. There’s way more questioning going on out than there should be though.”
