PokerStrategy Sues Full Tilt Poker, Pocket Kings for $1.2 Million

eGaming Review Magazine this week revealed that the online poker portal, PokerStrategy.com, has sued Full Tilt Poker for $1.2 million claiming unpaid ad revenue.

PokerStrategy was a major partner of Full Tilt. EGR revealed that at the height of its relationship with Full Tilt Poker, PokerStrategy was sending 30,000 players per month to the room. Whether those were general sign-ups or depositing players remains to be seen, but Full Tilt, thanks in part to sites like PokerStrategy, became the second largest online poker room in the world in terms of cash game volume, second only to PokerStars. 

PokerStars this month acquired Full Tilt Poker as part of a settlement arrangement with the US Government following indictments that were handed down on April 15, 2011 against both companies. 

"We only filed the claim this week, as we did not want to stand in the way of Full Tilt Poker reaching an agreement with the DOJ to return missing funds to the affected poker players," PokerStrategy's Chief Executive Officer Dominik Koferto explained in regard to the timing. 

PokerStrategy reportedly provided Full Tilt Poker with the bulk of its non-US traffic after it was forced to abandon the American market last year. 

Full Tilt Poker has been the target of other lawsuits in the past 12 months, most of which were eventually thrown out.
