The Hendon Mob Distances Itself From Full Tilt Poker

The Hendon Mob Distances Itself From Full Tilt Poker 0001

One of Full Tilt Poker's biggest and well-known affiliates, The Hendon Mob, have officially cut ties with the stricken former online poker giant with immediate effect. The Hendon Mob were the first European players to sign with Full Tilt Poker as “Red Pros” and over the past five years they have brought thousands of players to the tables through their affiliate scheme.

The Hendon Mob, made up of Barney Boatman, Ross Boatman, Joe Beevers and Ram Vaswani, posted a statement on their popular forums which reads:

"Like everyone else in poker we have taken a close interest in the development of recent months and we are saddened by the problems that continue to beset Full Tilt Poker.

The Hendon Mob were the first European players to sign up with FTP and this site has been a major affiliate. In the past five years we have made many good friends amongst the Full Tilt staff, Red Pros and of course the growing Hendon Mob community who played with us on the site and supported our league. For all their sakes, and for the wider poker community, we would be delighted to see positive developments in the weeks and months ahead.

We are well aware that a great deal of players including many who signed through The Hendon Mob still have money on FTP, as well as steps tickets, player points etc. going forward, and in any scenario where Full Tilt Poker resumes trading, we will as an affiliate continue to look out for the interests of our players and to try to achieve the best possible outcome regarding their funds. We do not take the loyalty of our community for granted.

The Hendon Mob employs a sizeable staff of full and part time people who are dedicated to maintaining and improving the database, the forum and everything else that the poker community expects from our website. We are currently running at a substantial loss and this is not sustainable in the long term.

We have therefore chosen, as well as ceasing to be Full Tilt Pros, to end The Hendon Mob.com’s exclusive relationship with Full Tilt Poker. This frees us for new opportunities, both as a website and as players and we look forward to an exciting future that we hope you will all be a part of.

The Hendon Mob"

This latest action is another blow to Full Tilt Poker as if they do come back online they will have to attract players without one of their longest-running and most-recognisable affiliates. Where The Hendon Mob go from here is unknown but as soon as any news emanates on that front we will bring you the full details.
