With the return of Full Tilt Poker brass Chris Ferguson as well as Howard Lederer has dominated the headlines at the World Series of Poker, and for very good reason.  Professional as well as recreational players still are feeling the sting of the Black Friday wounds that just mjay never be fully healed.

Bill Gaze who is the former Full Tilt red pro was hit very hard in more than just one way.  The hit first being that his wallet took a great hit.  It was stated that red pros were hit hard financially by the government and most player got very little if anything back.

The second was that his desire to play a game that he absolutely loved as well as used to make his living went by the wayside.  Bill Gazes did show up for two World Series of Poker festivals, but shortly came to the conclusion that his heart just was not into it.  The results of this suffered as he booked zero cashes, as he walked away from the game table.

Bill stated that Full Tilt was a colossal fuck up, yet it did not have to be that way.  Bill continued by stating that there were so many things that were just done wrong by so many different people.  He was not only talking about the game of Full Tilt but the way the government handled it.   Many people ended up going through a lot of unnecessary stress over the situation.

Bill continued by sharing what he thought to be the downfall to the site.

The first thing that he noticed was that the payment processing was getting squeezed.  He stated that he did not know the whole story but they lost millions of dollars by funding people without actually getting money from the people.  So what does a company do just say sorry we are closed down, no they did whatever it was and scrambled around to make end meet.
