In an interview with poker pro Patrik Antonius, the Finnish former Full Tilt Poker spokesperson says he will likely be among the “Biggest losers” should FTP fold for good.  He claims to have a significant amount of money tied up on the site, which was shut down June 29 and has had its license permanently revoked. 

Antonius came under some degree of criticism for continuing to play on the site and represent Full Tilt Poker long after the company was forced to flee the US market, stiffing all its customers.  Executives of Full Tilt Poker were indicted and charged with money laundering and bank fraud on April 15.  Last month the US Government named three of its pros in a civil complaint, accusing them of running a ponzi scheme. 

"Obviously I had nothing to do with the management", Antonius says during the interview with PokerTube.com.
