Full Tilt Owes Pro Player Millions

This story was published more than 11 years ago.

A prominent online poker professional told online poker site CardPlayer that his account balance was around $7 million before the site was crippled by the Black Friday indictments.

Daniel "Jungleman12" Cates said that up to 80% of his bankroll was locked up when Full Tilt went offline on April 15, 2011. Cates said that the action slowed his momentum on Full Tilt's high stakes tables where he was winning a substantial amount.

It is currently unknown how much players will get back in reimbursement from the former poker giant, who was acquired by former rival PokerStars after the firm struck a deal with the U.S. Justice Department.
