ccording to Josem, Full Tilt customers should expect an email from the online poker room within the next few days on how the merger will affect them.
The merger was already confirmed in February and is expected to have only a small effect on the overall liquidity for PokerStars.
Full Tilt has been losing players rapidly after black friday and has currently just under 600 ring-game players on a seven-day rolling average according to Pokerscout.com. In comparison, PokerStars has 13,000 ring-game players.
"Full Tilt players will join the PokerStars platform and liquidity on May 17, as the two player pools will be combined to form one market leading poker experience. In many cases, Full Tilt players who already hold a PokerStars account will not need to update any information or transfer their account assets (loyalty points, cash balances etc) which will be transferred automatically to their PokerStars account and they can simply log in to their PokerStars account and enjoy all the great benefits on offer, including even more game choices and bigger tournaments.", said Michael Josem, Head of Public Relations for PokerStars.
