In a lengthy interview with Quadjacks.com Full Tilt Poker pro Mike “The Mouth” Matasow stated that the primary face of FTP, Howard Lederer, is having trouble talking to anybody these days as “he is so depressed”.

Full Tilt Poker has not paid back its US players since an indictment was handed down against the company’s two founders on April 15.  Both were charged with money laundering and bank fraud in connection with misrepresenting online poker transactions as dog food and golf balls.

On June 29, the Alderney Gambling Control Commission yanked Full Tilt Poker’s license, essentially knocking what was the world’s second largest virtual card room offline.  Players around the world have been unable to receive payment.

Matasow continued insisting that FTP will pay back everyone.

Other talking points, a la PokerKing.com:

*FTP was spending "something like $15 million a month" in marketing to compete with Pokerstars


*Tom Dwan has $1 million on FTP

*Dan Cates has $6 million on Full Tilt

*Someone who has it out for Phil Ivey is leaking "wrong" information to the website SubjectPoker.com and "hurt chances of FTP players getting their money back"

*Phil Ivey's lawsuit against FTP was a "crock of shit" and he "didn't think when he filed it"

And, drum roll please….

No offense to Mr. Matasow, but we've heard this one about 75 times already….

*"I believe by next Friday that something will come out"
