Poker Pro Clonie Gowen is certainly not happy with online poker room giant Full Tilt Poker and she proved that the other day by filing a lawsuit against Tiltware, LLC. and Full Tilt Poker. Here is the biggest breathe taker though, Clonie Gowen is asking for a large, very large sum of money totalling $40 million. Yes that is correct $40 million, if you need to take a second to take a nice big breathe then you can, I will wait. Well the reason for the filing is because Clonie Gowen is accusing Tiltware and Full Tilt Poker of breach of contracts, Breach of Fiduciary Duty, Breach of the Covenant of Good Faith and Fair Dealing, Unjust Enrichment and Fraud.
The reason for the filing to the lawsuit because during alleged meetings between Tiltware Executives and Clonie Gowen came upon oral agreements that would allow Clonie to endorse the website. The only thing is Clonie Gowen is stating that there was no written contracts signed and most of the promises were made while talking on the telephone with the Tiltware Executives. Another piece of information to note that in the filing of the lawsuit some of the Full Tilt Poker pros were also listed. Poker pros such as Howard Lederer, Andy Bloch, Phil Ivey, Chris Ferguson, John Juanda, Phil Gordon, Erick Lindgren, Erik Seidel, Jennifer Harman, Mike Matusow, Allen Cunningham, Gus Hansen and Patrik Antonius.
A statement that was released by Tiltware, LLC. Executives is posted below.
“Tiltware, LLC, has been made aware of the recent filing of a merit less lawsuit by a former Full Tilt Poker endorser — Ms. Cycalona Gowen. All claims have no merit and there are many inaccuracies improperly and unlawfully asserted by Ms. Gowen within her frivolous complaint. Tiltware LLC expects that this lawsuit will be dealt with accordingly by a competent court in due course.”
Also Clonie Gowen is no longer associated with Full Tilt Poker and no longer has her red highlighted name and personal avatar on the online poker giant Full Tilt Poker.
Wow, who would have thought that Clonie Gowen would have had problems with Full Tilt Poker? I’ve played with her at the Bellagio and she is also my neighbor, living about 10 floors below me. Very sweet woman and I couldn’t imagine why Full Tilt Poker would do this to her.
