Online poker forums were abuzz on Monday after players detected activity had been detected on Full Tilt Poker's website after a year of inactivity.
Players discussed claims that up to 411 players appeared to be online and playing on the website, which was crippled by the actions of the U.S. Justice Department on Black Friday of last year.
The news prompted rumors that the activity was a test by the Group Bernard Tapie to re-launch the former poker giant. The French investment firm has been negotiating to purchase the company.
