Fulltilt Management failing?

If you look at http://www.pokerscout.com you will see that Fultilt is now doing about 50% of the business PokerStars is doing. The change in business has been happening steadily for the past 6 to 9 months. This should deeply concern Fulltilt's owners because less then a year ago FT was almost even with PS.

Normally, shareholders would demand changes in strategy or insist in bringing in new management (professional management).

On top of the above, FT has now has it's first public cheating scandal.

Again, if the shareholders were business people or money managers vs poker players they would be demanding answers and letting management know they are failing.

From reading the other thread it appears to have been a collusion ring (if the allegations are true). You probably should have mentioned specifically what type of cheating was involved. Though it does sound better the way you put it, right?

Re: Fulltilt Management failing?

I just transferred the last of bankroll from TIlt to Stars this week. Got disconnected 3x w/18 players< left in 2k+ runner tournament, potentially cost me 1000's of Dollars. This has never happened to me on Stars and continuously does on FTP, I have high speed Comcast and top of the line equipment no ****ing excuse.

No. But the owners of Tiltware are shareholders.

Looking at those numbers Full Tilt has almost always been <50%. Regardless, I sincerely doubt FTP management or the shareholders are all that concerned when they've doubled their clientele the past year.

Not sure what OP's vendetta is all about.
