Full Tilt Emails Players to Prep for Nov. 6 Re-Launch


It’s been confirmed that the new management of Full Tilt Poker has sent emails to players to verify their accounts in advance of the online poker room’s November 6 re-launch.

The news first came to light on poker forum 2+2 when users began reporting emails from FTP, requesting documents and information to verify their identities.

Shyam Markus, who has been representing FTP on the forum, quickly tweeted that the emails are indeed legitimate but have only been sent out to a small group of FTP players.

The email reads:

As you are aware, Full Tilt Poker is preparing to re-launch by November 6th, 2012.

Action Required: You will need to verify your identity to access your account.*

In the interest of account security and in accordance with the anticipated Isle of Man regulatory requirements, you are required to verify your identity.

Providing valid documentation now will ensure that your account is fully verified and active upon re-launch. Once relaunch and system testing has completed, you will have unrestricted access to your Full Tilt Poker account, including all cashier functionality and poker games.

Please reply to this email, attaching the following documents:

This news further strengthens the hope that PokerStars.com’s acquisition and re-launch of the FTP brand is going according to plan.

An estimated $300 million in player funds has been locked up on Full Tilt Poker since Black Friday, a sum PokerStars has agreed to cover in its recent deal with the US Department of Justice.

The plan calls for non-US players to gain access to their Full Tilt Poker accounts no later than November 6, while Americans will have to go through the DOJ to recover their funds.
