Tiltware Issues Statement on Phil Ivey
Companys Blasts Poker Pro, Claiming He Owes Money
Less than 24 hours after eight-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Phil Ivey publicly criticized Full Tilt Poker and filed a lawsuit claiming $150 million in damages, Tiltware, the company that provides software and marketing for the online poker site, issued the following statement:
Contrary to his sanctimonious public statements, Phil Ivey’s meritless lawsuit is about helping just one player – himself. In an effort to further enrich himself at the expense of others, Mr. Ivey appears to have timed his lawsuit to thwart pending deals with several parties that would put money back in players’ pockets. In fact, Mr. Ivey has been invited — and has declined — to take actions that could assist the company in these efforts, including paying back a large sum of money he owes the site. Tiltware doubts Mr. Ivey’s frivolous and self-serving lawsuit will ever get to court. But if it does, the company looks forward to presenting facts demonstrating that Mr. Ivey is putting his own narrow financial interests ahead of the players he professes to help.
Ivey, regarded by many as the best player to ever live, won nearly $20 million at the virtual felt on Full Tilt Poker –- tops all-time in the digital game.
