It is with great regret that we at the Twitter Poker Tour have announced an indefinite suspension of the Twitter Poker Tour Championship Series on Full Tilt Poker. In the wake of the recent Federal Indictments of the heads of Full Tilt Poker, PokerStars, and Absolute Poker, as well as the 5 online poker payment processors, we feel that this is the safest course of action.

With our sponsor and host Full Tilt Poker suspending play on their “real money” client to U.S. players pending the outcome of the case, the vast majority of our user base will be rendered with the incapability of participating in the scheduled events. As such, we feel that a suspension of play is necessitated as we can no longer guarantee the prize pools or that the events will even take place. While we realize that some players in markets outside the U.S. will be able to compete in the series, our best and most prudent course of action is to follow suit with the poker companies actions until a clear defined resolution has been met.

We at the Twitter Poker Tour continue to believe that playing online poker is legal. We will not stand idly by while many of our fellow friends livelihoods are placed in serious jeopardy during the course of this suspension and ongoing court proceedings. We have contacted our members of congress and will continue to flood their phones with calls and their email boxes with messages of our protest for interrupting the game that we love, and we encourage each of our members to fight for the same.

The Poker Players Alliance has provided the simplest means of contacting your Government officials and allowing you to voice your opinion on the matter. We implore you to join the voices of the more than 1 million PPA members and help us in our fight to regain our ability to play poker online.

In the meantime, the Twitter Poker Tour website will continue to operate as usual with the ability to interact on our forums and post articles, as well take advantage of the other features currently available to our members. The only disruption will be the indefinite suspension of our league and series play online. Thank you for your help and your understanding.
