      TwoPlusTwo Pokercast host Adam Schwartz, who is a respected and influential personality in the online poker community, claims to have heard a rumor that states that the sale of Full Tilt Poker is now done.

      "Heard a rumor that the FTP sale to French investors was done," Schwartz told in his Twitter earlier today.

      Later Schwartz also hinted on 2+2 that his source was "very reputable":

      "I was told by what I feel (and most of you would too btw) is a very reputable source. The person doesn't want me to say their name.

      Obviously I wouldn't have said it if someone sitting next to me in the $1/$2 game told me. If some of you are unhappy that I tweeted it, what can I say, I felt it was worthy of some confidence"

      However, no official statement has not yet been issued about a possible deal, and Schwartz's comment is still just a rumor.

      Jeff Ifrah, a lawyer associated with Full Tilt, has told earlier, that any deal would include full repayment of all player balances.

      Highstakesdb.com will be following the case as it develops.

      Hi guys,

      Right now, it's nothing more than a rumour and as soon as we hear anything more substantial at all, we'll let you know exclusively right here first.

      Best,

      Marc

      Why would you do that? I mean if you had money in there then you must have liked that poker room, and it's not like they will reopen and continue what they did, the buyers are putting so much money into this so why would they fuck it over? I think because of this it will be one of the safest poker rooms to play on and AGCC will keep a close eye on them. And I heard one user here saying, "Don't blame children for the parents crime".

      yes, I like software and FTP and so on, but I will not make that mistake again of keeping all my money in one place. and after they reopen (if this is true) I imagine there will be a lot less people playing than before. but we'll see what will happen.

      Not very sure about that, their reputation is very badly damaged and they'll be loosing a lot of their former member. However, hopefully a new bunch of fishes will join to kindly donate their money!
