Just when you think it can't get any worse....

I go on a rant a couple days ago about how much I miss full tilt and what happens? The entire company is proven to be a scam. Having said that, the thing tilt always seemed to get right was the software. Like most companies, there was a huge disconnect between management and the worker bees. Too bad management is a bunch of crooks. I still find it hard to believe Jesus, Furst and Lederer knew everything and still let the company go down the shitter. Or not.

Funny how ultimate cheat is just as bad, but drops off the face of the earth entirely....

  1. A fair number of FTP's software developers came from Poker Academy. First FTP hired some away, and finally just bought out the company, essentially leaving us PA members out to hang three years ago. They slashed and burned their way through the poker world, which is expedient, but never a really sustainable business model.

    If it turns out that those three guys knew what was going on, I can't imagine they'll want to show their faces in any poker rooms for a while. But then again, maybe this is just an updated version of the poker cheats of yore and is nothing more than part of the ethos we don't like to talk about, like the gambling addictions of some of poker's biggest stars.

  2. The whole thing lends new meaning to the word sordid. A shame, really.

  3. I didn't know that bastin. I started out on PA, I still think it's one of the best programs for getting people up and running. The play chips there are about as close as you're going to get to real competition without real money. I did feel kind of burned by them when they didn't upgrade prospector, but now I guess I know why...

    I think you're not too far off with the comparison. I haven't been paying too much attention, but it seems like there are a few online scandals going on besides the tilt saga.
