After a long period of public silence, a wave of action began in March and has seemingly continued to build towards a relaunch of FullTilt in some form.


Fresh off the one year anniversary of the darkest day in the company’s history, there are signs that Full Tilt Poker is about to finally stir back to life at the hands of Groupe Bernard Tapie.

After a long period of public silence, a wave of action began in March and has seemingly continued to build towards a relaunch of Full Tilt Poker in some form. The latest news involves the formation of a company called “New Full Tilt Limited”. The company, incorporated in Dublin on February 14, lists Laurent Tapie as Director. A similar company was incorporated one week ago in Malta.

Bernard Tapie’s Fingerprints Now All Over Full Tilt Poker

Bernard Tapie’s Fingerprints Now All Over Full Tilt Poker | This Week in Gambling - Poker News | Scoop.it
Several months after it was announced Group Bernard Tapie was to acquire shuttered Full Tilt Poker, Tapie’s name now appears on the company’s registration.


On Tuesday, a sharp-eyed 2+2 forum poster (Gunner171) uncovered two newly registered companies in Malta under the names “Full Tilt Holding Ltd.” and “New Full Tilt Ltd.” Another 2+2 sleuth (Capt36feet) discovered GBT principal Laurent Tapie’s name as director and secretary on an Irish registration for New Full Tilt Ltd., which was incorporated on Feb. 14 with a declared capital of €1m. And a third 2+2 poster (GrassyKnoll63) found Bernard Tapie’s fingerprints on a Russian-made bolt-action rifle in Dealey Plaza in Dallas. (Just kidding on that last one.)


Full Tilt Poker was among three websites that were forced to exit the US market in April 2011 following an extensive investigation by the US Justice Department. Bank accounts connected to FTP were also froze. US customers have yet to be paid for more than a year now and there are no guarantees that an acquisition by Group Bernard Tapie will result in payouts. Tapie in recent months has suggested that his firm may not be able to refund US players, leaving that in the hands of DOJ officials.
