He has to win the final table in able to live a decent life as a poker pro. He could have taken some vacation time from work in advance.

Worst decision ever coming from LIDLL. I guess the boss didn't expect that his ultimatum would show up in the media, now LIDL lost many customers which represent much more than the cost of replacing someone for 1 day.

Lets hope that his job quit will pay off eventually, if thats not the case i guess it will be pretty hard to get another job in these times...

Best of luck to him, i would never personally quit my job to play a poker tournament...

Quiet sad they don't support him for making it to the final table. I geuss the boss doesn't like gamblers. Or is just really strict to his workers

The same in Holland. LIDL is squeezing their employees to make more profit.

Hard discounters always squeeze their employees, they must do it so they can maintain very low prices... but they forgot the marketing factor there lol

well, playing poker is time consuming .. so maybe he should consider some small private business.

Very true Logix, if it already had such wide attention it was silly to put themselves in such a bad light. Though i'm guessing it was more to do with the hard-ass that was his boss, hope he takes the top prize and rubs it in his face.
