20 Most Influential People
#5: Ray Bitar
Former Full Tilt Poker CEO Ray Bitar should garner considerable attention in 2013 as he addresses a legal battle which could result in life imprisonment for financial crimes. The 40 year old turned himself into U.S. authorities in July after having aided the eventual sale of Full Tilt Poker to PokerStars. Bitar faces nine-counts of charges and is the DOJ’s most sought-after target from their Black Friday indictments.
