New Full Tilt owners could offer a co-ownership to players

Bernard TapieIn a Wall Street Journal report, was discussed today an idea that could make peace between Full Tilt and their players offering them equity stake in the new company. The players who still need to be paid by Full Tilt Poker will have a meeting face to face with the owners (the players that have a lot of money to restore from Full Tilt) will have an equity stake , that is calculated around the money that they have to withdraw from Full Tilt. The Bernard Tapie Group (they want to buy Full Tilt Poker) asked for more than $300 millions to be returned to the players.

Yesterday, Benham Dayanim, one of the Laurent Tapie (son of Bernard Tapie) lawyers, confirmed that they haven`t  settled the final sum that is needed to pay the players as a co-owners in the company. Another interesting idea is that Bernard Tapie could ask for the actual owners of Full Tilt Poker to invest in the new Full Tilt company, but without any managerial rights.
