According to a source with good understanding in the situation between Full Tilt Poker and Bernard Tapie Group, Laurent Tapie has moved to Dublin, Ireland, where Pocket Kings (the owners of Full Tilt Poker) has its head office. Laurent Tapie, son of the well-known politician and entrepreneur Bernard Tapie, has been in charge of completing the Full Tilt deal since the negotiations began in September last year.
The source, who's not named anywhere, says that Laurent Tapie is now finalizing the deal between Bernard Tapie Group and Full Tilt and the official agreement should be signed sometime next week. This means that Full Tilt Poker might be ready for a new launch in Europe in a couple of weeks.
However, no official statements have been made by either Full Tilt or Bernard Tapie Group since the beginning of March when Full Tilt's CEO Ray Bitar apologized to poker world (almost 1 year after Black Friday), so we will have to wait a bit longer before we know for sure what's going to happen
