Full Tilt Poker Has a Future

[ Posted October 3rd, 2011 ] by admin

Only a few days ago, the Bernard Tapie Group has been announced as the group who will look to be taking over Full Tilt Poker. The announcement was made by Laurent Tapie on behalf of Full Tilt Poker.

Laurent Tapie is the son of Bernard Tapie, a French businessman and politician. Bernard Tapie is a renown businessman with a track record of rebuilding a number of bankrupt companies and making them profitable. In 1990 he was instrumental for rebuilding the Adidas brand. He also owned a team that won the Tour de France twice and a soccer club that won the French Championship five times in a row, as well as the Champions League in 1993.

Perhaps it’s fitting that Tapie is looking into Full Tilt Poker as he record also has some controversy. In 1993, he was accused of fixing a match between his soccer club and another, for which he served a seven-month prison sentence. Tapie was also convicted of tax fraud and was sued by his banker for repayment of a $240 million loan.

Either way we look at this, it seems like we have a light at the end of the tunnel. The next few weeks/months will shed more light on what we hope is the future for Full Tilt Poker and it’s players. We may very well see Full Tilt Poker players paid the money they still have owing to them.
