Full Tilt Poker - Deal Me InIn June of 2011, the AGCC pulled the plug (literally) on Full Tilt Poker.

Over the next 14 months, the poker world closely followed the unfolding saga while wondering if they would ever get their money back. The "white knight". Groupe Bernard Tapie. Phil Ivey's lawsuit. It was a tortuous 14 months for players who had significant amounts of money trapped on Full Tilt Poker.

The saga finally came to an end this past summer when Pokerstars announced that they had settled with the US Department of Justice. As part of the settlement, Pokerstars received all of the assets of Full Tilt Poker. Pokerstars declared that Full Tilt Poker would be run as a separate site and be operational within three months.

Late last week, Full Tilt Poker's poker room manager announced that play money games would begin on the site by this week.

Earlier today, play money games went live. Real money games will go live on November 6th.

Players can now head over to to download the new and revamped software.


After sixteen months of being offline, Full Tilt Poker is open once again.
