PPA’s VP of Player Relations Rich Muny Reports on FTP Remissions

The remission process for Full Tilt Poker's U.S. players fits into the category of 'being hopeful with intent to make you wait' with a bit of uncertainty thrown into the mix as to who will receive what. Rich Muny, VP of Player Relations at the Poker Players Alliance, has posted a report on who is to be excluded from receiving funds that have been in lock-up since Black Friday, April 15th, 2011.

Muny's weekly update states that he received information from "multiple trusted sources who received it directly from Claims Administrator Garden City Group."

Muny goes on to say that he contacted GCG about the authenticity of the email and they did not deny the information but they weren't willing to add or detract from the news either which leads him to believe the information he's received is completely reliable. The following is the information Muny shared:

The following persons are excluded from the Remission process and are not eligible for payment from the Full Tilt Poker (“FTP”) Fund:

i. A past or present employee of FTP or any of its past or present affiliates;

ii. A past or present vendor of FTP that received compensation through FTP players’ accounts;

iii. A past or present Team Full Tilt player;

iv. A past or present shareholder of FTP, Tiltware LLC, Kolyma Corporation A.V.V., Pocket Kings Ltd., Pocket Kings Consulting Ltd., Filco Ltd., Vantage Ltd., Ranston Ltd., Mail Media Ltd., or Full Tilt Poker Ltd.;

v. A past or present officer or director of FTP, Tiltware LLC, Kolyma Corporation A.V.V., Pocket Kings Ltd., Pocket Kings Consulting Ltd., Filco Ltd., Vantage Ltd., Ranston Ltd., Mail Media Ltd., or Full Tilt Poker Ltd. or any of their past or present affiliates;

vi. A defendant in any civil action or a claimant in any forfeiture action brought by the Department of Justice related to the violations alleged in this action, or any related action (or any of his or her affiliates, assigns, heirs, distributees, spouses, parents, children, or controlled entities); and

vii. A person who, as of the Petition filing deadline, has been the subject of criminal charges related to the violations alleged in this action, or any related action (or any of his or her affiliates, assigns, heirs, distributees, spouses, parents, children, or controlled entities).

Muny's report goes on to remind everyone that has an account balance at Full Tilt Poker to be aware of the narrow window — September 16th to November 15th — in which to file their application for remission of their funds.
