Ray Bitar became the CEO of Full Tilt Poker. They were in the middle of big scandal when the US gov shut down Full Tilt Poker. Money mismanagement. Player funds and operations cash were being commingled. Bitar was taken into custody and I believe is still waiting trial. One respected sports bettor called him a "buffoon".
Some damning statements about Bright Trading. While once a hugely prosperous operation, today I find and believe that the parking lot is all but empty. The dozens of traders are gone and not likely to return. Of all the people that have taken this training and joined Bright - practically none are still there today.
While to me the legacy of Bright Trading is is a long history of broken bankrolls and broken dreams, I believe the victims of Full Tilt are better off than those of Bright Trading because at least they have some chance of getting their money back.
