10/13/09 – The $80 000 lawsuit against Full Tilt Poker.com filed in California recently by two players banned for multi-accounting and robot play has triggered an official statement from the company.
 
In the statement, the company claims: Pokerstars
 
“Full Tilt Poker has been made aware of the recent filing of a baseless lawsuit by former Full Tilt Poker customers – Ms. Lary Kennedy and Mr. Greg Omotoy.  Both of these player accounts were appropriately terminated for multiple violations of the express terms and conditions governing fair and lawful play in the Full Tilt Poker online virtual cardroom, including their own admissions of using multiple accounts.
 
"The usage of multiple accounts not only violates the clear terms and agreements governing fair and lawful play, it creates an unequal and unfair advantage that Full Tilt Poker does not and will not permit.  We aim to protect our players at all cost, thus we terminated these two claimants’ accounts.
 
"The claims of these former customers have no merit, their complaint is frivolous, especially given the lack of candor during extensive investigation and the unequivocal and unambiguous admissions of using multiple accounts. 

There is no reason to play poker anywhere else, the most tournaments, the top ring games, biggest prizes and most players. In addition we will give you $600 free on signup. Visit Pokerstars to play. 
 
"With respect to alleged use of prohibited automated systems, the claimants’ false assertions will be revealed as such in due course.  Full Tilt Poker has never knowingly allowed "bots" to play on its site.  To the extent either of these claimants indeed used such prohibited “bots” in violation of all applicable rules, such impermissible use by the claimants was without the knowledge of Full Tilt Poker.  When fraud, collusion, and cheating of any kind is uncovered, Full Tilt Poker investigates extensively, and then acts accordingly and appropriately, as was the case involving these claimants.
 
"As always, Full Tilt Poker remains committed to protecting their players from anything that might compromise the integrity of its games.  Full Tilt Poker expects that this erroneous lawsuit and its spurious claims will be dealt with accordingly by proper courts of law and other appropriate tribunals.  Full Tilt Poker expects that these claimants will be obliged to compensate the aggrieved defendants for any harm that may arise out of their false allegations, and for the wrongful institution of these bad faith legal proceedings.”
