Ray Bitar in need of transplant

By Ben Ludlow

Ray Bitar, founder of (in)famous poker room Full Tilt Poker and the man accused of misusing player funds for company operations, will be pleading guilty as part of an agreement which should allow him to avoid prison and obtain a heart transplant. According to John Baughman, lawyer for Bitar, they will strike the deal during a conference with US District Judge Preska in Manhattan federal court. Bitar will be absent due to health issues.
