Phil Ivey boykottiert WSOP und verklagt Full Tilt Poker!

Wie Phil Ivey gerade auf seiner Homepage philivey.com bekannt gegeben hat, wird er die WSOP boykotieren und dort nicht erscheinen. Wahnsinn! Undenkbar! Eine WSOP ohne Phil Ivey? Eine WSOP ohne den besten Spieler der Welt? Das geht doch gar nicht!

Geht schon, denn Phil Ivey hat die Schnauze voll. I am deeply disappointed and embarrassed that Full Tilt players have not been paid money they are owed. I am equally embarrassed that as a result many players cannot compete in tournaments and have suffered economic harm. I am not playing in the World Series of Poker as I do not believe it is fair that I compete when others cannot. I am doing everything I can to seek a solution to the problem as quickly as possible.

Aus Solidarität, so sein Statement, zu den Spielern, die aufgrund von „Nicht-Auszahlungen“ auf FullTilt nicht an der WSOP teilnehmen können, habe er sich entschieden, kein einziges Event bei der WSOP zu spielen.

Des Weiteren wird die Firma Tiltware (Macher von Full-Tilt) verklagt: My name and reputation have been dragged through the mud, through the inactivity and indecision of others and on behalf of all poker players I refuse to remain silent any longer. I have electronically filed a lawsuit against Tiltware related to the unsettled player accounts. As I am sure the public can imagine, this was not an easy decision for me.

Nach der gestrigen Presse-Erklärung folgt nun der nächste Paukenschlag in der Sache „Full-Tilt“.

Hier das komplette Statement:

For many years, I have been proud to call myself a poker player. This great sport has taken me to places I only imagined going and I have been blessed with much success. It is therefore with deep regret that I believe I am compelled to release the following statement.

I am deeply disappointed and embarrassed that Full Tilt players have not been paid money they are owed. I am equally embarrassed that as a result many players cannot compete in tournaments and have suffered economic harm. I am not playing in the World Series of Poker as I do not believe it is fair that I compete when others cannot. I am doing everything I can to seek a solution to the problem as quickly as possible.

My name and reputation have been dragged through the mud, through the inactivity and indecision of others and on behalf of all poker players I refuse to remain silent any longer. I have electronically filed a lawsuit against Tiltware related to the unsettled player accounts. As I am sure the public can imagine, this was not an easy decision for me.

I whole heartedly refuse to accept non-action as to repayment of players funds and I am angered that people who have supported me throughout my career have been treated so poorly.

I sincerely hope this statement will ignite those capable of resolving the problems into immediate action and would like to clarify that until a solution is reached that cements the security of all players, both US and International, I will, as I have for the last six weeks, dedicate the entirety of my time and efforts to finding a solution for those who have been wronged by the painfully slow process of repayment.
