It was almost three years ago that World Series of Poker Bracelet winner Blair Hinkle chopped up, and took the lions share, of one of the biggest online tournaments at the time – FTOPS XIX $600 Multi-entry Main Event. The poker professional negotiated a final table deal which awarded him over $1.1 million dollars – which got trapped online when Black Friday hit.
He served as a poster boy for all the victims of the Ferguson/Lederer/Bitar Full Tilt incompetence and “ponzi scheming” by becoming a virtual millionaire with little to no recourse to receive his potentially life-changing payday. Finally though, with the announcement of Full Tilt payments coming this week, as reported by pokerfuse, Hinkle will finally be able to make it rain.
Congrats to Hinkle and all of the US accounts that will get a little boost to their bankroll this week.
