So it appears that Full Tilt must cease operations until at least July 26th.


  1. So, did the management at Full Tilt manage to prepare for anything? If the reports are to be believed, they turned down investment offers so they could maintain control. If that’s true, then they’ve managed to turn a billion dollar enterprise into a smoking hole in the ground. It seems that at every turn in the last year they zigged when responsible managers would have zagged. Does anyone there understand risk management?
