In a recent blog entry, Full Tilt Poker pro Brandon Adams noted how a number of FTP players were refusing to wear their patches at the World Series of Poker.  Adams, on the other hand, insists on wearing his.

“I expect to wear a Full Tilt patch during most of the Series,” he said

“I’ll do this not because Full Tilt tells me to (indeed, Full Tilt sent out an email to US pros that leaves all US deals in an ambiguous standing) and not because I have a self-interest in doing so. Obviously it’s more convenient not to wear a patch on any given day, given the scorn and media interest one might receive, and certainly one doesn’t expect financial benefit from wearing a patch (my deal, for instance, only awards money if the patch is shown on TV, but one is not allowed to wear poker site logos on feature tables this year).

“I’ll wear a patch more out of loyalty, because I know and like the Full Tilt guys, and I trust them to do the right thing. Along with everyone else in poker, I’m devastated by the fact that the poker world is being ripped apart, and I’m horrified by the fact that Full Tilt hasn’t been able to meet its obligations in the short-term.

“I’ll also be wearing a Full Tilt patch out of fear.”

Phil Ivey, one of FTP’s most recognized pros, announced his intention to file a lawsuit against the room as he sought to get out of his contract.

Full Tilt Poker customers in the US are yet to receive their funds following a US indictment of the company and its two founders on April 15.
