Phil Ivey is Suing Tiltware and Will Not Play on WSOP This Year

Phil Ivey is suing Tiltware!

Many of you must already go hand in hand with the situation in which are the American players at Full Tilt Poker since the "Black Friday", which can not play or make a withdrawal, the situation is now beginning to be resolved because the U.S. government is already unfreeze the bank accounts at Full Tilt so that the American players can get their money!


But to everyone's surprise on last June 1, 2011 the professional poker player sponsored by Full Tilt Phil Ivey goes public with a criminal case brought against the TiltWare for damage to its reputation with this whole process. And for this reason and for solidarity with other professional poker players who are in a very complicated situation, says he will not play in the WSOP this year!


Phil Ivey official 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."


On June 2, 2011 to respond to The Phil Ivey statements, Tiltware says that Ivey actions are selfish and that instead of being helping the other American players, Phil Ivey is only damaging and difficulting the process of receiving their funds.


Tiltware official statement::

Contrary to his sanctimonious public statements, Phil Ivey's meritless lawsuit is about helping just one player – himself. In an effort to further enrich himself at the expense of others, Mr. Ivey appears to have timed his lawsuit to thwart pending deals with several parties that would put money back in players' pockets. In fact, Mr. Ivey has been invited -- and has declined -- to take actions that could assist the company in these efforts, including paying back a large sum of money he owes the site. Tiltware doubts Mr. Ivey's frivolous and self-serving lawsuit will ever get to court. But if it does, the company looks forward to presenting facts demonstrating that Mr. Ivey is putting his own narrow financial interests ahead of the players he professes to help.
