Probably makes more sense. Running 2 sites is a bit inefficient.

oh well, at least Pokerstars saved the players from Bitar-et-al's actions

A bit of an end of an era, although the Full Tilt skin will remain....just not the software and semi-individuality

Better make the last FTOPS a good one!

I think all points will be converted to Pokerstars equivalent

Here's the email I received:

Quote:
We're contacting you to let you know that from April the Full Tilt brand will run on the Pokerstars platform. You'll still have The Deal, the Full Tilt avatars you love and, on top of that, you'll get to enjoy the many benefits of extra liquidity, bigger promotions and increased prize pools.

In short, you'll have instant access to the strongest gaming experience around.

Here's a bit more detail on what's happening:

Q: What do you need to do?
A: Nothing for now, just keep doing what you're doing. We're simply letting you know that we're working on the upgrade and it will be with you shortly.

Q: What will happen after the upgrade?
A: Once we make the change, when you log in you'll be prompted to update your software and account. With your new account, you'll have access to the Full Tilt, Pokerstars, CasinoStars, BetStars and StarsDraft brands, as applicable in your jurisdiction, via one great platform.

If for any reason you don't want to upgrade to our new platform, you are free to withdraw your funds from your Full Tilt account at any time. For information on how to make a withdrawal click here.

Q: Where can you find more information?
A: You can read our FAQ page here - it contains all the latest information on the software upgrade.

Thank you,

Full Tilt
