Almost a year after Black Friday, Full Tilt Poker CEO Ray Bitar finally decided that he has some words to share with the poker community. In a brief interview with PokerStrategy, Bitar apologized and tried to explain the unexplainable - his silence.

“There are two reasons. One is the ongoing legal process which has precluded me from providing any relevant information surrounding the on-going investigation, and of course, I have not wanted to jeopardize the process in any way,” Bitar said. "The second reason is that, along with others, I have been working every single day since Black Friday to ensure players are repaid, which has been my top priority, as well as working on the future plans of FTP. This work had to be done out of the scrutiny of the public eye." He added that he believes public statements would have hurt the prospects of a positive outcome.

Bitar also said that his life has changed drastically since Black Friday and added that he's been cooperating with the Department of Justice in the ongoing investigation. Finally, when questioned whether he had anything else to say, Bitar apologized to those who have been affected by the events. Although it's a very short interview, it was Ray Bitar's personal request that the it was focused on his apology.

Maybe should have thought about that before making illegal transactions off the book with paid pros and share holders?

What pile of BS is this. What about the state FTP was in before Black Friday, having a huge (360 M $)budget deficit.

Apologies online don't mean shit.

I was expecting a "Chael Sonnen" type of apology from this fuck face.
