HNR 3/27: Full Tilt Poker Licensing Review; Black Friday Plea Deal

Dustin Gouker : March 27th, 2012


Full Tilt Poker’s licensing body undergoes an independent review, and two Black Friday defendants cut plea deals. It’s all in Tuesday’s edition of the PTP Hit and Run.

Full Tilt update: No new news on the sale of Full Tilt Poker to Groupe Bernard Tapie, but there was some news on the Full Tilt front. An independent review was released on the Alderney Gambling Control Commission’s handling of the Full Tilt case. And according to that report, the AGCC acted appropriately. More on the review here.

Black Friday defendants take plea deals: No big trial for online poker. John Campos and Chad Elie, who were allegedly involved in payment processing for online poker, cut deals with the U.S. government. More on the news here.

Live poker updates: The European Poker Tour’s Campione stop in Italy is in day 1b; you can get live updates here. Lots of pros are still alive, including Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, Patrick Antonius, Dario Minieri, Victor Ramdin, Liv Boeree and Melanie Weisner, to name a few. More below:
