Barnes’ tweet causes concern among players
A tweet that appeared this week from one James Barnes, who appears to be a lawyer who often tweets on insider information about the Full Tilt debacle, claiming that the Pokerstars attempt to acquire Full Tilt Poker had been derailed caused quite a stir in the industry, and raised concerns among unpaid players.
Namely, in his tweets, and without revealing his sources, Barnes stated that the Pokerstars attempt to acquire FTP had "folded"; that it was "never a real deal - just a bluff" to prevent Groupe Bernard Tapie from taking over the company and a bargaining chip in trying to ameliorate DoJ actions.
He also stated that "DOJ have rejected proposal by Isai to have civil charges dropped. He's worried about jail time," and asked: "Pokerstars have gone all-in! Will DoJ fold?"
However, asked to comment on the tweets, Pokerstars' communications chief, Eric Hollreiser, who said that the allegations Barnes presented are "false."
