Full Tilt Executive Arrested In New York

Full Tilt's Ray Bitar was arrested yesterday in New York by federal authorities.  Bitar's statement is below.

Today, I returned voluntarily to the U.S. from Full Tilt’s headquarters in Ireland to face the charges against me. I know that a lot of people are very angry at me. I understand why. Full Tilt should never have gotten into a position where it could not repay player funds. for the last 15 months, I have worked hard on possible solutions to get the players repaid. Returning today is part of that process. I believe we are near the end of a very long road, and I will continue to do whatever is required to get the players repaid.  I hope that will happen soon.
Thank you.

I feel so much better knowing Mr. B will "continue to do whatever is required to get the players repaid."

Uh huh, sure you will.


  1. I used to think the FT guys who were involved were amateurs who made mistakes. Now I think they are people who broke the law and are deserving of jail terms.

  2. Perhaps he can tour the local golf courses with OJ searching for buried funds.
