Full Tilt Poker Dismisses Jonathan Little

On March 8th, 2008, We renege our conditions and you will earn some punishment, no matter who you are in the poker games circuit. That is the message that Full Tilt poker is apparently trying to impart on the general public by dismissing World Poker Tour winner Jonathan "Fiery Justice" Little. The decision by Full Tilt to fire Little was personally announced by Full Tilt Poker administrator TilterRick in the forums of Full Tilt Poker.

The statement said that while having a good run on the World Poker Tour, Little is no longer affiliated with Full Tilt Poker because he violated the agreement that he should have not told anyone the details of his account. Full Tilt Poker said that while they encourage their poker professionals to play as much as they can, they want to be fair with all of their dealings. It is generally assumed that Little has been trying to increase his rake back without actually personally playing in the game. Suspicions were generated on the PocketFives forum when poker player rusypolano notice that Jonathan Little played in about 1,227 sit and go tournament in just a week.

Other members of the forum said that Little was playing on Full Tilt Poker while playing in the NBC National Heads-Up Championship. Just earlier this year, Sorel "Imper1um" Mizzi was caught while loaning his account to a friend. Even online poker player Josh "JJprodigy" Fields was caught using multiple accounts. Little became known in the poker circuit when he finished in the 1st place at the 2007 World Poker Tour Mirage Poker championship, after achieving success on the online poker circuit.

Aside from that, Little finished in the 7th spot at the Gulf Coast Poker Championship, a 2nd place finish in the World Poker Tour North American Championship and a 53rd place finish at the recently concluded Doyle Brunson World Poker Classic. Little has earned more than $2 million dollars in the World Poker Tour events and has a lot of cash ins at the World Series of Poker events.
