The London Telegraph is reporting that monies due to players for a tournament show has failed to arrive from the world’s second largest online poker venture, Full Tilt Poker.  This has cast some doubt on the company’s solvency, writes Alistair Osborne.

Presentable produces the programming and was holding the event in Cardiff, Wales. 

The show featured celebrity poker players, including boxer Audley Harrison and writer Victoria Coren as well as Full Tilt-sponsored professionals, such as Erick Lindgren.

Megan Stuart, Presentable’s managing director, said: “The money hadn’t come through for some of the players, basically the Full Tilt ones. We would have been staging the tournament under false pretences had we carried on.”

Full Tilt Poker was indicted along with PokerStars and UB.com on April 15, charged with money laundering and bank fraud in the US.
