Full Tilt Poker News and Updates

The well-known site had to suffer because of the infamous Black Friday incident in the poker world, which in turn ended up closing the site in 2011. The only way to get out of it was if some sort of corporate entity purchased it, repaying its non-US players in full and re-launching the site. After a long exhausting struggle, PokerStars came to the rescue and acquired the operation and re-launched it successfully in November 2012. And this is how the Full Tilt Poker made a remarkable comeback and retained its reputation and popularity.

Full Tilt Poker’s customer support used to be slow earlier but after its re-launch their services have improved dramatically.

There is also a comprehensive FAQ section in their Help and Support Center, which can clarify most common queries or issues of players.
Though Full Tilt Poker offers good customer services, it lacks the personal touch. However, email response from the company is fast and very professional, usually providing answers within minutes.
