Phil Ivey No Longer Full Tilt Poker’s Biggest Winner

Poker pro Patrik Antonius scooped more than $ 900,000 over the past seven days on Full Tilt Poker, according to data from HighstakesDB. Since starting to play again on the software under his old screen name “FinddaGrind”, Antonius has won more than $ 2.5 million.

While playing under his real name on the software, Antonius was up $ 11.3 million.

According to HSDB, Antonius’ FinddaGrind screen name was his old account on Full Tilt, which he used between 2007 and 2008 before switching over once he was a site-sponsored player.

Altogether, he has won just under $ 16.4 million lifetime on the software.

Phil Ivey, who since late 2012 has been playing under the screen name “Polarizing”, has lost $ 4.7 million over the past 17 months or so. While playing under his real name on Full Tilt, Ivey was up $ 19.24 million. Ivey may have bigger things than his online downswing to worry about, though.

In other words, Antonius recently overtook Ivey ($ 14.54 million in lifetime profit on the site) as the most successful player in the history of the Full Tilt Poker software.

Much of Antonius’ profits lately have come in limit Omaha eight-or-better.

In other news, Viktor Blom managed to drop just under $ 180,000 over the past week, which brings his losses on the year to $ 968,000. He was up $ 2 million in February.

Blom was Antonius’ victim in 2009 in a record sized $ 1.3 million pot in PLO.

Gus Hansen actually had a profitable week, winning $ 275,000. His lifetime losses on Full Tilt Poker now stand at $ 17.38 million, which is still a record.

Full Flush Poker Focusing On Fun And Community

Entering a somewhat crowded online poker landscape late in 2013, Full Flush Poker has been quick – and smart – to distinguish itself from the pack. Founded on the idea that online poker has become far too much about the professional grinder at competitor card rooms, FFP’s emphasis is on reigniting the fun factor in the game, and creating a sense of community among players.

Full Flush Poker, the Equity Poker Network’s (EPN) flagship, set the tone early with plenty of play-for-fun tables and weekly freerolls during their two-month soft launch beta-test period, while players relished the opportunity to get comfortable with the software and settle into the FFP space.

Since launching full real-money gaming options in November 2013, FFP has been steadily building its reputation and recreational player base across the globe, (including the U.S.), and is proving popular with those who want a fun and safe game of hold’em without fear of swimming in shark infested waters every time they log on.

FFP has firmly established itself as a reliable and trustworthy online poker alternative. An important component of this rests in consistently impressing players with efficient and friendly customer support, and some of the fastest cashouts to be found anywhere in the industry. Add to this FFP’s competitive incentive package for players new to the site, which includes a very attractive welcome bonus, instant cash bonuses, free tournament tickets, plus monthly promotions, it’s no wonder that player response has been overwhelmingly positive.

Right now, Card Player readers are eligible for a 150 percent deposit bonus of up to $ 600. Sign up today and compete in the $ 5,000 guaranteed Sunday Blowout. New depositors also get entered into a $ 500 freeroll.

Bernard Lee Returns With Full House Charity Program

For the third holiday season in a row, poker pro Bernard Lee, along with co-sponsors Chili’s and Run Good Gear, provided over 50 children in the Lawrence, Massachusetts area with gift packages as part of the Full House Charity Program.

Founded in 2011, the Full House Charity Program gives a minimum of $ 10,000 annually to organizations across New England that focus on needy children.

“I hope these packages make the holidays a little brighter for these deserving families. My family and I look forward to this special night every year, when we can help spread the joy of the holiday season,” said Lee, a Wayland resident whose son and daughter helped him hand out the packages. “The sole purpose of the Full House Charity Program Giving is to give back to the community and put smiles on the faces of these children and their families.”

The packages included gift cards, board games, toys, sports equipment, books and winter clothing.

Lee is a Card Player Magazine columnist with $ 2 million in lifetime earnings. He also hosts the Bernard Lee Poker Show on Rounders Radio, which is also available via podcast on iTunes.

GCG: Full Tilt Poker Cash Outs By Mar. 31, 2014

The Full Tilt remission process could come to a close for some during the first quarter of next year, according to the firm in charge of compensating former American players.

The deadline for most victims to file a claim was this past Saturday, and on Friday Garden City Group released an important update on its site:

There will be a limited extension to the November 16, 2013 filing deadline for players who are Affiliates and for certain players identified as Pros in the data supplied by Full Tilt Poker (“FTP”)…For players identified as Pros, it has been determined that the only Pros who will be deemed ineligible to participate in this remission process are Team Full Tilt players and other players who were playing with funds from FTP or who were compensated by FTP to play on the FTP site. GCG is working with the Government to review the status of players who have been designated as ineligible Pros. Once this review is completed, for any such players who are deemed to be eligible to participate, GCG will email the players to provide instructions regarding the Petition process. Such players will have 30 days from notification to submit a Petition. Please continue to check this website for updated information.

We are in the process of reviewing Petitions filed by Petitioners who confirmed their balances online and who have not disputed their FTP Account Balance or submitted multiple Petitions. We expect payments to be made with respect to such Petitions with confirmed balances by March 31, 2014.

In other words, for some former players the saga could be over by next spring.

Full Tilt Poker was shut down in American cyberspace in April 2011, and was later accused of operating as a Ponzi scheme under prior ownership.

There were around 1.4 million potential victims of the fraud, who were stiffed out of around $ 160 million. The former owners have all settled their respective cases.

Deadline Approaching: Full Tilt Poker Victims Have Until Saturday To File A Claim

Victims of the Full Tilt Poker fraud only have a few days left to file a claim online for possible compensation.

On September 16 and September 17, Garden City Group, the payment processor hired by the government to facilitate the cash outs, sent notices to all potentially eligible petitioners identified utilizing data supplied by the once defunct Full Tilt.

The firm said it sent out more than 1.4 million emails.

According to the Poker Players Alliance, around 35,000 petitions have been filed so far.

The deadline to fill one out is Saturday, Nov. 16.

In you haven’t filled out a claim, but would like to, click here.

Payouts reportedly could start coming in during the first quarter of 2014.

The whole mess stems from Full Tilt falling into hot water with the federal government in April 2011, a day known to the poker world as Black Friday. The site’s owners were eventually accused of defrauding players, as the company went insolvent with hundreds of millions owed to players around the world. PokerStars went on to buy Full Tilt and pay out non-American players, with the U.S. government and its hired hand in charge of cashing out Americans. After long waits, that process could finally finish sometime in 2014.

The former owners off Full Tilt have all settled their respective cases.

Full Tilt Poker Victims To Receive Emails On How To Get Their Money Back Starting In September

The Garden City Group, the claims administrator for the Full Tilt Poker money, released an update Friday on its website, FullTiltPokerClaims.com.

The firm stated:

Starting on September 16, 2013, GCG will email a Notice with instructions on how to submit a Petition for Remission online to all potentially eligible claimants identified by GCG utilizing data supplied by Full Tilt Poker (“FTP”). The deadline to submit a Petition for Remission is November 15, 2013. Instructions concerning the filing of Petitions will be included in the Notice and will be posted on this website. Please continue to check this website for updates. Please note that the registration process for email notification is no longer available.

Earlier this month there was good news for poker players as it was announced that account balances, rather than the amount deposited over the years, would be what players eventually receive in remission. There was fear that winning players would be penalized.

Full Tilt Poker, under previous ownership, shut down in American cyberspace in April 2011, as part of the federal case unveiled on what has become known as Black Friday. The site closed its doors completely in the summer of 2011, and it was later called a Ponzi scheme.

A total of about $ 159 million is owed to up to 1.3 million former players.

High-Stakes Online Poker: Gus Hansen Now Down $10.4 Million Lifetime On Full Tilt Poker

Gus Hansen lost $ 114,498 (according to HighstakesDB) on Thursday, which brings his lifetime losses on Full Tilt Poker to an incredible $ 10.4 million.

The Dane has lost about $ 3.4 million more than the next worst in the tracking history. Hansen is officially the biggest loser ever online, but Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté has been rumored to have lost far more back when he was playing under an unknown screen name.

Full Tilt opened in 2004, and Hansen’s official data goes back to 2007.

Around summer 2009, Hansen was sitting at about $ 1.7 million in profits on the site, but then went on a downswing that lasted over a year. He was down about $ 10 million. However, in fall 2010, Hansen began a massive heater. By spring 2011, he had erased about $ 6 million of those losses. But when Black Friday struck in April and Full Tilt shut down that summer, Hansen had to put his upswing on hold for months and months. The site relaunched in November 2012 under new ownership, and Hansen was reunited with his account.

So far in 2013, he has lost $ 4,003,528, about $ 1.2 million more than Phil Ivey, who despite being the biggest winner in online poker history, has lost $ 2.8 million this year.

Winners In 2013

cottonseed1: $ 3,556,082
Viktor “Isildur1” Blom: $ 3,140,715
Alexander “PostflopAction” Kostritsyn: $ 2,714,965
Ben “Bttech86” Tollerene: $ 2,405,690
Patrik “FinddaGrind” Antonius: $ 1,790,599

Losers In 2013

Gus Hansen: -$ 4,003,528
Phil “Polarizing” Ivey: -$ 2,859,477
samrostan: -$ 2,817,245
punting-peddler: -$ 1,648,452
MalACEsia: -$ 1,380,398

it’s hard to win when people can see your hole cards. You have to be fooling yourself if you don’t think there is cheating going on in online poker.

I’ve seen headlines about Hansen and his losses for quite a while now. My own experience with finally checking out FT only recently and interest in online poker in general led me to sign up here so I could post for this.

So yes, only recently within the past few months did I finally check out the (free) action at FT (I’m in the US), having put it off all this time for several years or so now. Having already seen certain extremely “questionable” patterns in various well known online poker options, all except one being “free” ones (although virtual goods is actually big $ and big business in itself wherever any paid options apply – just ask the guy who got a 2 year jail sentence over Zynga chips in 2011 – so ultimately the incentives are the same, just on a different scale), I was naturally hoping for the best with FT. And what did I find? Loved the software interface, felt it was the best I’d ever seen overall – so far so good. But…

The card action I experienced on FT was what I would describe as the absolute “stupidest,” most absurdly non-credible action I had ever experienced. I was very surprised. It was far worse than what I had experienced elsewhere in terms of that stuff. Despite how much I liked the interface, I was left with no desire whatsoever to even bother getting a chip reload or to play there again, and I haven’t

So…although it was only the “free” option on FT for me, as I read these headlines about Hansen and his incredible losses, I’m not surprised at all.

As a side note, I have spent time on the other biggest two names as well since then, PS, and the action there started out seeming as if it would be ok and “credible,” but has turned out to be only somewhat better, and really more or less the same overall. Sad. It turns out that both of them are even worse than what so many of us were observing and talking about on a famous poker app on FB which was definitely in business to make $ selling virtual chips.

This whole experience has been very disappointing, and lead me to be concerned about the industry in the US as it unfolds and finally starts rolling. It is my hope that attention will be squarely paid to regulating and examining the software itself, and that we get a solid clean industry if possible.

Somewhere along the line I came across a video I would like to share. Very ironically, it was embedded on a poker related site and the author was calling attention to it as being nonsense. The only thing the author succeeded in doing for me, however, was pointing me to a video I found to be rather valuable and which resonated with my own experiences I was having with online poker. The video is on a Youtube channel called “Robers dee” and is titled “Online Poker Is A Scam.” I highly recommend watching it and listening to what the guy says, and it’s only around 9 minutes. Here’s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b3tv-1rBJeY. When I watched this video, even though he was talking about real $ online poker elsewhere, it was as if he might as well have been describing the free-but-with-paid-options FB app I was regularly playing on at the time. I found it to be very compelling indeed.

Well, you have certainly raised one of the most troubling and concerning of the issues involved in online poker, Jill, and thanks for doing so. Hopefully these kinds of things will be addressed as the industry begins to unfold here, but sadly it doesn’t really seem to be now.

Hmmm, let me see. This guy is one of the biggest losers in all of poker as shown by his initial play online and his current play under more regulated terms. Then he all of a sudden goes on a 6mil heater right before Black Friday on Full Tilt where know owners, reps, and players were proven to be able to see hole cards using ‘god’ accounts. Funny coincidence don’t you think?

This guy is one of the worst degenrate poker players of all time and a complete douche bag as well. Why anyone would still use the words ‘poker pro’ with his name is laughable. He is as much of a poker pro as Guy Laliberte was, but at least he knew what he was an admitted playing those stakes for pure fun. If Gus is a ‘poker pro’, then I am a professional golfer with my 3 handicap down at the local golf club, lol.
