The Full Tilt Poker Hearing - Much Ado About Nothing

By Matt Kaufman, Rakeback.com Poker News Staff Writer

Alderney Gambling Control Commission

Earlier this month it was revealed that the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) would hold a public legal hearing on July 26th regarding the future of Full Tilt Poker. The AGCC had previously suspended Full Tilt's license, making it impossible for them to operate.

That hearing happened yesterday at the Park Plaza Victoria Hotel in London. Despite it being open to the public, nothing regarding Full Tilt was actually revealed.

Full Tilt was represented exclusively by lawyers and legal assistants. No individuals associated with the direct management of the company were in attendance.

The company decided to request an adjournment of the hearing until a later date to allow them additional time to get their financial situation in order. When a Full Tilt lawyer made this request and the AGCC decided to consider their application for adjournment in private, it caused a number of groans from the public - especially poker pro Harry Demetriou.

Demetriou left his seat and shouted "What about the players?" before calling Full Tilt a "corrupt company" and leaving. His outburst was met by a round of applause.

Ultimately, the AGCC granted Full Tilt's request and will hold another hearing no later than September 15th. Hopefully Full Tilt will get their situation under control by then and maybe the next hearing will contain more useful information than this one did.
