Gowen v. Tiltware LLC, et al. is a lawsuit that was filed in a Nevada court Thursday against Full Tilt Poker and several players presumably who represent the world's second largest online poker room. 

Defendants include the likes of Erick Lindgren, Gus Hansen, Patrick Antonious, Phil Ivey and Chris "Jesus" Ferguson. 

In her complaint, Gowen (better known as Clonie) alleges that in 2004, she was offered (and accepted) 1% ownership of Tiltware and FTP in exchange for being a celebrity representative and that she has worn FTP merchandise and promoted FTP in exchange for that ownership interest without other compensation.

In May 2007, all Team FTP members received distribution checks but her.

Nov 6, 2007, Lederer offered to pay her $250k for her past performance on behalf of company, she refused claiming this was only fraction of what was owed to her...

Gowan estimates that Full Tilt Poker is a company worth $4 billion...

Despite not being paid, Gowan continued to work and promote company until November 11, 2008, when she was informed that FTP would issue a press statement informing public she was no longer a Team FT Pro...

Gowan also has claims against the defendants related to:

1. Breach of Contract --- claiming damages of $40 million...

2. Breach of Fiduciary Duties

3. Breach of Covenant of Good Faith and Fair Dealing

4. Unjust Enrichment

5. Fraud/Intentional Misrepresentation

Clonie has placed 6th in the WPT Ladies Night II, 2006; 4th in the Fourth Annual Five Diamond World Poker Classic, 2005; and 3rd in the Full Tilt Poker Tournament, 2005.
