WellI sent this to The Epic Poker League Ethics committee (email@example.com) and am currently awaiting an answer.......
I note with interest and applaud your stance regarding David “Chino” Rheem after he won your inaugural event as poker needs to have a clean cut image and seen to be doing the right thing.
However I would like to know what your stance is on the involvement and participation of any Full Tilt Poker shareholders in your league either as players or within your organization itself?
They have obviously received dividends over the years that are now seen as having come from player deposits in one way or another (directly or indirectly) and as such have benefited financially to the detriment of completely innocent players who signed up to the site and who look likely to lose $100’s of millions between them.
Just find it very interesting that you have no public opinion/statement on this as the current Full Tilt Poker debacle and the missing player funds is to say the least a significant event that has brought poker into greater disrepute than anything else since the UB/AP controversy.
Your soonest response with your comments would be appreciated.
...and got this out of office reply earlier today so we will see if a full reply is forthcoming.
