We decided to conglomerate some of the public responses from well-known poker pros who were associated with Full Tilt, starting with some former Team Full Tilt members:
Phil Gordon released a public statement: "I am thrilled to learn that Poker Stars has acquired Full Tilt Poker. This acquisition is the best outcome for players and the future of online poker. I am extremely happy to learn that players will be given the opportunity to restore their bankrolls and be made whole. I wish the best of luck to Poker Stars and poker players worldwide."
John Juanda (@LuckBoxJuanda) tweeted: "Overjoyed by the news that FTP players will soon be reunited with their money. Been steaming over the situation for quite some time."
Tom Dwan (@TomDwan) sent a few tweets, and mentioned that he'll be writing a lengthier blog explaining his feelings: "Abt time" "Lol at ppl giving the doj the credit for today. I'll do a long interview or blog detailing who to rly thank and some random stuff"
Gus Hansen did an interview with a Danish website in which he revealed he has $2.4 million tied up on Full Tilt.
While the rest of Team Full Tilt has been quiet so far, another former Full Tilt pro, Phil Galfond, sent a tweet which seems to perfectly fit the opinion of most players:
@PhilGalfond: "Props to @PokerStars for handling the last 16 months w/ extreme professionalism. Bailing us all out now is an obscenely large cherry on top."
