Late last week internet rumors began swirling regarding poker players finally being paid their funds by former online poker giant Full Tilt Poker.
The rumors began after two poker sites PokerPlayerNewspaper and Gambling911 claimed independently that PokerStars and the US government had mostly set a deal into place that would see PokerStars take over Full Tilt and pay players their positive account balances.
Wendeen Eolis of the Poker Players Newspaper noted that: "Without giving away the identity of a consistently impeccable resource, it is now safe to say announcements for public dissemination are in the works. At this point I am ready to go out on a limb; FTP customers will see their monies well in time for Christmas shopping."
Gambling911's Chris Costigan asserted that: "...all players owed monies by Full Tilt Poker will be receiving their funds with an announcement forthcoming directly from the US Attorney’s Office very shortly."
