Full Tilt Poker's Alderney Hearing Scheduled

This story was published more than 12 years ago.

Full Tilt Poker has a date with the Alderney Gambling Control Commission. It was confirmed today that the AGCC has scheduled its hearing with Full Tilt Poker on July 26th at the London Plaza Victoria Hotel at 10am.

In June, the AGCC suspended Full Tilt Poker's license in the wake of the actions by the United States Department of Justice on April 15th, a date which is colloquially referred to as Black Friday. Following the AGCC suspension, Full Tilt has seen a loss of more than half of its players (around 9,300), with more than 5,000 of them choosing to play elsewhere.

AGCC Executive Director issued a statement last week stating, "AGCC’s choice to hold a public hearing into the future of Full Tilt Poker demonstrates our willingness to act transparently, and we will welcome members of the public and the media. As ever, and at all times, our primary concern is the protection of the player.”

It has also been rumored that foreign investors are looking to purchase a stake in Full Tilt with an overall goal of refunding American players and getting the one time poker giant back in an operational mode.
