Who is this guy?
Shyam Markus is the Poker Room Manager in charge of ring games, tournaments, software features, and promotions at the soon to be resurrected Full Tilt Poker.
He has revealed that he was the man behind the handle 'FTPDoug', which for years fielded questions on the forums in regular 'FTP Answers' threads. Since 2006 he was the sole source of player support on the TwoPlusTwo poker forums, then becoming absent after Black Friday.
In a long, frank forum post, FTPMarkus apologized to the online poker community for the difficulty of the past 15 months, thanked PokerStars for their decision to purchase FTP's assets, and promised to field questions as openly and transparently as possible.
