In the wake of Black Friday, PokerStars has commenced paying out its US players as it cooperates with the US Department of Justice, but it appears that Full Tilt Poker is still trying to organise the process.
This week a Full Tilt spokesman using the handle FTPDoug used the popular twoplustwo forum to communicate with US players and answer some of their questions regarding the future of their account balances.
Full Tilt is still getting a formal FAQ up on the Web, but in the meantime, players may want to click through to the following twplustwo page for a preview in the form of FTPDoug's answers to players:
As InfoPowa went to press there had been no changes to Full Tilt's last official statement, which advised players that the DoJ agreement to pay players was a good first step, but that it wouldn't be able to process refunds until the government gives up control of its funds.
The company pointed out that “there remain significant practical and legal impediments to returning funds to players in the immediate future,” and noted that, thanks to the recent enforcement measures, there are now no (legal US) channels through which refunds can be made.
