Full Tilt Poker Payout

A Canadian customer of Full Tilt Poker claims he just received a check from the company postmarked and expedited 21 July

It could be the first sign that Full Tilt Poker is starting to pay customers again following their license being pulled June 29. 

An individual with close to 100 posts on the Two Plus Two forum disclosed that he received a check postmarked 21 July (the check was dated May 23).  He is a Canadian player.

If true, this person appears to be the first to have received a check from FTP this month after the company was essentially shut down. 

A hearing was held in London yesterday by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission to determine the fate of Full Tilt Poker.  A second hearing will take place no later than September 15.

Definitely from FTP. Came from TD Bank in Toronto, like usual, with all the weird little markings that make bank tellers initially think they look fake. The cheque itself was (I deposited it this afternoon) dated May 23, which is kind of odd, because I believe that's the date I requested it, but it wasn't approved until sometime in mid-June.

What was strange wasn't the cheque, but the envelope it came in. Up until BF I was getting weekly cheques from FTP, so I'm very used to getting cheques in a non-descript kind of envelope. This one, however, was sent IBMS Priority. The return address is (I kept the envelope because I found it odd): C.H.E. Airport House, SFZ, Co. Clare.

The really interesting thing is it was postmarked July 21, which tells me FTP is at least interested in keeping its cheapest playerbase somewhat happy.

Edit: I should probably add I'm not American. Canadian.

While it is conceivable that Full Tilt Poker would unleash its shills onto the Two Plus Two forums (in the past, often to attack Gambling911.com writers), this individual does not appear to have ulterior motives other than his active participation in FTP related threads and relatively short life span (one month) on the 2+2 site. 

It will be interesting to see if others report receipt of similar checks.
