Full Tilt Poker's marketing manager quits

Lothar Rentschler, the Chief Marketing Officier at Pocket Kings Ltd. (Full Tilt Poker's parent company), has decided to step down from his position and leave the company after nearly 3 years. There is no doubt whatsoever that Rentschler, just like many other employees, has decided to quit due to the complicated situation at the company since Black Friday. Rentschler's duties at the company will officially end on September.

"This was, after almost 3 years with the company, not an easy step... It was 3 years with many challenges and also many successes... However, given the current circumstances, I do believe it is a long overdue step towards the right direction.
"

"I do apologize for the inconvenience the current circumstances at PKL have caused for you personally as well as for your respective companies. Our hands in Marketing were bound and at the end even every communication was stopped. Again, I can only apologize for this situation. The future will hopefully see a better, well organized structure and a return to business as usual. To see the brand FTP going down that way, hurts a lot." Lothar Rentschler writes in an e-mail dated August 16.

I cant understand his reason to quit. Ok, so there's no point in trying to sell what is not for sale, but, if he had the job, why didnt he waited until he was fired? This way he would receive more than just quiting.

True that this sounds bad, but who knows what it means. I'm still pretty sure that atleast non-american players will get their money back. Players from other countries were not doing anything illegal, and even if they did, that doesn't mean their money isn't theirs anymore...

Full tilt poker has all the legal rights to keep players money (this is what you agreed to in the terms and conditions), and thats why they will keep them.

Someone has to pay for this mess (the lawyers fees) and the players money will be a part of that payment. Time to forget your money on FT ...

I hate to admit it, as I've tried to remain optimistic throughout this whole debacle, but I am starting to come to the realization that the players, myself included, will never see our rolls again.

It's not like the $ I had on there was life changing, I'm more upset about the time and effort I put into building my roll and accumulating all the points I had.

Oh well, c'est la vie I guess, time for people to move on and migrate elsewhere or stop playing.

It does sound a bit ironic saying they have "all the legal rights" doesn't it? of course ur right m8 but if they were minding the law there they wouldn't be in this mess from the beginning...

What a mess. I am sure that sites like PartyPoker and others that got out of the United States market years ago are now pleased with their decision. Pokerstars seems to be alive and kicking, but the effects of Black Friday will be felt for years to come. I know that for myself, keeping a bankroll of a decent size on any site is not something I would consider anymore. GL to all still with $$$ on FT.
