Daniel Tzvetkoff, an Australian entrepreneur and payment processor, will be a star witness in the trial of 10 men charged in connection with the operation of PokerStars, Full Tilt and Absolute Poker.
Tzvetkoff provided vital evidence incriminating the sites as part of a plea bargain after his arrest in April 2010. In a cruel twist, rumours abound that Full Tilt handed Tzvetkoff to the Feds after he had stolen $100 million from them and PokerStars. The companies had sued Tzvetkoff in court before, though were unsuccessful.
Tzvetkoff is believed to have entered the witness protection program after becoming an informant. His whereabouts are unknown.
