Full Tilt Poker Places Itself in Compromising Position

Clonie Gowen filed an amended complaint against Full Tilt Poker, the world's second largest online poker room, its related companies, CEO Raymond Bitar and 13 big name poker players who are part of Team Full Tilt.

Gowen claims that the defendants breached on their agreement to pay her 1 percent of Full Tilt Poker's profits in exchange for her celebrity promotion of the brand.  She has estimated Full Tilt to be worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $40 billion.  Gowen is seeking $40 million in damages. 

Pokerati - one of the more popular poker blogs on the Net - reports that the situation with Full Tilt Poker appearing in a court of law could be compromising to a number of folks associated with the company.

From Pokerati:

This is really interesting stuff. As I alluded to in an earlier comment with respect to this case, the rubber will meet the road for Full Tilt Poker when they have to testify with respect to the operation of the various companies and the contractual arrangements with other members of the FT Team. Looks like that will happen with the court-ordered depos of Bitar and, most interestingly, Ferguson. As I have said before, I cannot imagine that anyone with FT wants to talk about their dealings with Full Tilt Poker in such a forum, under oath, as it would seem to be tantamount to providing a knife to the butcher wanting to kill the goose who's laying golden eggs. Plus, now there may be e-mails out there Clonie references that, at least, reference her deal? Wow, again, no way FT wants to go there.
