Poker After Dark's Last Hurrah?
1. Ivey/Benyamine Revelations.
Subject: Poker (link below) published a very interesting article earlier today titled "FTP's Financial Relationship with Two Pros".
Subject: Poker was allegedly able to obtain "access to Ivey's and Benyamine's account history on Full Tilt's internal systems".
Plenty of interesting information in the Subject: Poker report - I suggest that you give it a read.
If Full Tilt Poker isn't saved by the mysterious European investors, then I would expect a flood of similar information to make its way to the public over the coming months. You have to figure that there will be some disgruntled Pocket Kings employees who will talk if the company ends up going under..
