We Saw This Coming: Cycalona Gowen Hits Full Tilt Poker With $40 Million Lawsuit

Clonie_gowen_full_tilt_poker_patc_2

A few of you, including Michael Binger, took notice back in June when we first reported that Full Tilt Poker's upper management was not happy with Clonie Gowen and that she was on the way out.

At the time both parties scoffed at the suggestion, and Clonie kept on wearing her patch.

Well, as you probably know by now, we were right. Gowen has been forced out and in return has filed a $40 million lawsuit on Friday in the Nevada District Court against Full Tilt Poker and all related parties including its CEO Ray Bitar and player/owners Howard Lederer, Andy Bloch, Phil Ivey, Chris Ferguson, John Juanda, Phillip Gordon, Erick Lindgren, Erik Seidel, Jennifer Harman-Traniello, Mike Matusow, Allen Cunningham, Gus Hansen and Patrik Antonius.

According to PokerNews:

The filing details alleged meetings between Gowen and Tiltware executives where the deal for Gowen to endorse the website was struck. In the claim, Gowen alleges an oral contract existed while admitting no written contract had ever been signed, and that most of the alleged promises took place over the telephone or in meetings with Tiltware executives in Las Vegas in 2004.

In response to the suit, Tiltware issued the following statement:

"Tiltware, LLC, has been made aware of the recent filing of a meritless 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."

Love that they called her out as Ms. Cycalona Gowen, her real name as revealed in the lawsuit, in responding. Such a bitch slap. Almost as much as a bitch slap as naming your kid Cycalona.

Relatedly, considering we were right about this, what do you think the odds are we'll be taking Annie Duke and Joe Reitman to dinner in a year?

Unrelatedly, Victoria's Secret models parading around in next to nothing.
