Full Tilt Poker VS PokerStars in High Stakes Poker
Recently Full Tilt Poker decided to pull their team members from the High Stakes Poker TV Show, the decision came about when Pokerstars got the sponsorship for the show and bought the rights previous episodes of High Stakes Poker.
The reason FullTiltPoker pulled their pros was due to the fact that viewers maybe confused that the Team Full Tilt Poker pros were sponsored by PokerStars.
The decision may have been in the best interest for Full Tilt Poker, because of the recent slandering of High Stakes Poker Season 7. Many viewers were not impressed with several changes on the Poker TV show.
