Scheme?

I didn't realize they still had an office in Dublin - I assumed it closed down! I worked there briefly pre-Black Friday.

Does anyone know if the Dublin office remained open?

the good old FT pension scheme

So what is the plan here? Buy for 4billion then close it just so you can re-open 2 years later? Interesting

I would assume it's the former PokerStars, now Stars Group offices in Dublin?

That's not a plan; that's a scheme.

Yes. Very same office. Probably a handful of the people left from pre-BF.

Re: Full Tilt coming back?

Full Tilt should come back as it's potentially a good business move. The software works and is still pretty good even by todays standards. What they don't need to do is come back and run it like Stars' little sister as they did when they first re-opened it. The player base was from the same group and I didn't see much difference on how they marketed the two products... just on a smaller scale for Full Tilt.

I imagine that they are going to focus more on the casino aspect for Full Tilt but I think there's still room to push the poker product and make it profitable.

Re: Full Tilt coming back?

What they haven’t told you is that the €3 canteen allowance is just the average you’ll get after they make you open a chest every day. Some days you’re feasting like a king, other days you go hungry. Also, once you’re settled into the system they double the prices in the canteen with no notice.

The previous canteen price was €0.10 per day, for a huge selection of freshly prepared breakfast lunch and snackfoods.

However while it was appreciated at the time by a select few, it was clearly to sustainable in the long run. At the time however nobody cared about the future they just feasted, until they alas went out of business.

Now that a much more sustainable model is in place, plenty of people complain about the price, and dream wistfully about the old lunches and the €0.10 price, but secretly realise that a good lunch does not make a good job, and sustainability and stability is everything.
