NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. prosecutors made new allegations on Tuesday in a probe of the Full Tilt Poker website, accusing self-styled "Poker Professor" Howard Lederer and professional poker champion Christopher Ferguson and others of paying themselves more than $440 million while defrauding other players.

Prosecutors unsealed the earlier charges on April 15, accusing three Internet poker companies -- Full Tilt Poker, Absolute Poker and PokerStars -- and 11 people, including Full Tilt director Raymond Bitar, of bank fraud, illegal gambling and money laundering offenses.

Honestly, I would rather it be legal and taxed and backed by the FDIC.... Full Tilt has a nice chunk of my change that I will never see again.

Yeah, a lot of people screwed over by this. I only have 1k left on there because I fortunately cashed almost everything out a week before. I have some friends with up to couple hundred grand on there though. Really feel bad for them.
