Full Tilt: Very Weird Dudes Full Tilt: Very Weird Dudes

12-11-2008 , 12:51 AM
So I was doing domain research earlier tonight and found a sick list of domains owned by Full Tilt Poker (like... thousands of domains). Most were sensible purchases (ie, fulltiltpoker.com misspellings). Some were weird. Some were downright hilarious.

Exhibit A: guess who owns the domain www.jimmyfrickepoker.com? Righto, Full Tilt.

Some of their other "fun" domains:

www.sorelmizzi.net, www.chrisvaughnpoker.com, www.ansolutepoker.com, www.hallywoodpoker.com

This is a quasi x-post from my blog, the full version is here.

EDIT: oh yea, and from the end of my blog post:

"Since I’m sure this post will end up in the hands of Full Tilt execs, I’d also like to let you guys know that Costa Rica is accepting domain registrations for .cr domains. You can register them here. As of the writing of this post (12/10/2008 @ 10:30 pm CST), fulltiltpoker.cr is still available. Let’s see if Full Tilt can beat one of my enterprising blog readers to that domain."

there's some random person who owns sketchy1.com along with a lot of other random online poker screennames. i can't remember specific ones off the top of my head but the guy who owns mine:

Haritos, George greektycoon@comcast.net
JustAddChips LLC
1108 East End Ave
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15218

owns a bunch of others

So here's another aspect...

ansolutepoker.com is an alias which means the URL will remain the same in the address bar

on the other hand, domains like mattmatrospoker.com are set up as forwards and they'll actually go to Full Tilt's site.

So not only are they attempting to profit off of other poker site's brand names via typos, they're also actively/intentionally attempting to trick new players (maybe someone who saw an AP ad on TV) into thinking that the site is actually Absolute Poker's website. Oh, and I asked Matt Matros about this -- he had no idea they owned mattmatrospoker.com.

Oh yea, there are tons of domain squatters. Very normal because of all the scumbags out there who attempt to profit off of someone else's name.

But Mr Haritos also didn't call you a "freak and a very weird dude" last year.

That guy owns my name too. I don't understand how he is profiting from them because very few online players have their own site. Unless one of them binks a huge score I don't see them dying to have their domain.

I remember a post in the old Deuces Cracked subforum of 2+2 which showed that one of the misspellings of deucescracked.com went to the ftp homepage

That's not the only thing I'd do at Casino Rio Tijuana.

A year later and Howard Lederer is still looking for ways to own Gobbo, by any definition of the word.

But I don't really find anything weird about that considering your relationship with them. If I was them, I would have bought up the domains above as well...

Someone's taken www.mortallimit.com, which annoys me. I'm not good with this sort of thing, but a search revealed some sort of connection to "wehostwebsites.com." Bah. At least there's some sort of perverse pleasure in someone's having squatted my PokerStars name.
