FTP forlenger ikke avtalen med sine “Red Pros”

Full Tilt Poker

Stadig flere spørsmål kommet siden lanseringen av Full Tilt Poker som eies av Rational Group, som også er eiere av PokerStars. Et av disse spørsmålene som har bekymret de tidligere FTP “Red Pros” som har blitt utelatt av det tidligere FTP styre. I en e-post som ble mottatt av PokerNews Frankrike har den nye ledelsen informert alle “Red Pros” at de ikke vil kunne fortsette med sine red-pro statuser, eller at deres kontrakter fortsetter.

“The ‘Red Pro’ team is not being continued by the Rational Group and a new team has been launched under the name of ‘The Professionals’. Unfortunately, we do not have any immediate plans to expand the Full Tilt Pro team at this time.”

Denne e-posten ble skrevet av den nye lederen for Team Pro for FTP Dustin Iannotti og sendt ut til tidligere FTP Red Pros,

“We do not rule this out as a possibility in the future, and because of that, we will keep your contact on file should that plan change at any point.”

E-posten fortsatte videre med: “Other than the non-US player balances, The Rational Group did not assume any liabilities of the previous Full Tilt Poker companies and therefore previous contractual agreements that Full Tilt Poker may have had including with FTP Red Pros were excluded. As such, The Rational Group is not liable and will not pay for any amounts which may have been due to you under your agreement with any former Full Tilt Poker company.”

Videre inneholdt e-posten at dem kunne beholde sine “screen name” eller endre dette tilbake til det de hadde før dem fikk sin “Red Pro” status og muligheten til å beholde sin avatar eller endre denne til en normal avatar.

Her er e-posten i sin helhet:

Hello,

I understand many of you have had little to no communication with regards to your Full Tilt Poker Pro status for quite some time. I was just recently brought in to assume the role of the new Team Pro manager for Full Tilt Poker and relay some of the information below. While I cannot take responsibility for the silence you dealt with for the past few months, I can tell you that I can understand and appreciate how frustrated some of you must have been. The news below will likely answer some of the questions you have had during this time.

I am contacting you today to give you some information on the following:

- FTP Red Pro Team Status

- Your FTP Screen Name and Avatar

- Rational Group Liabilities with concern to the old Full Tilt Poker

============================

FTP Red Pro Status

The "Red Pro" team is not being continued by the Rational Group and a new team has been launched under the name of "The Professionals".

Unfortunately, we do not have any immediate plans to expand the Full Tilt Pro team at this time.

We do not rule this out as a possibility in the future, and because of that, we will keep your contact on file should that plan change at any point.

============================

Your FTP Screen Name and Pro Avatar

For players who changed their screen name once they became sponsored by FTP, we would like to give you a one-off opportunity to change your Screen Name back to the name you used right before you became a sponsored player. We will not allow you to change it to any new screen name, or any screen name used other than the last one used right before you began representing FTP.

We do intend to announce to the poker community via forums that we will be doing this, and we will also keep a list with support staff that can be mailed to any FTP player that writes in and requests a list of players who changed their screen names as a part of this process. We feel this is fair to you, and also fair to your opponents who play with you on a regular basis.

You are welcome to keep your screen name what it was changed to after signing with FTP if you so choose. The same goes for your avatar. If you choose to change your avatar to a Public avatar, you are free to go into your account settings from within the client and change as you wish.

If you wish to change your screen name back to the name you used just before being signed by FTP as an endorser, please reply to this email and state the following:

I want to change my screen name back to (Insert former screen name).

*This way, we can confirm we have the same information.

============================

Rational Group Liabilities with concern to the old FTP

Under the settlement agreement with the Department of Justice, The Rational Group committed to make available for withdrawal the online poker account balances of all non-U.S. players of Full Tilt Poker. As you know FullTIltPoker.com launched on November 6, and since then non-U.S. players are able to withdraw their balances which relate to previous player activity on the site.

Other than the non-US player balances, The Rational Group did not assume any liabilities of the previous Full Tilt Poker companies and therefore previous contractual agreements that Full Tilt Poker may have had including with FTP Red Pros were excluded. As such, The Rational Group is not liable and will not pay for any amounts which may have been due to you under your agreement with any former Full Tilt Poker company.

============================

Regards,

Dustin
