Daniel "Jungleman12" Cates (of the second "durrrr Challenge") made this post on his Twitter account today:
"Recently heard some very promising news regarding full tilt. Can't share it because it's confidential, but things looking very good :)"
Make of that what you will..
4. Davidi Kitai Wins Triple Crown.
