PokerStars Hangs The “Help Wanted” Sign After Massive Overlay

Is this the position of the guy who cost PokerStars $260k?

How fast did someone get fired over Sunday’s unexpected $260k overlay in the PokerStars Sunday Warmup? Well, there’s no way to be sure but a job posting for the Rational Group, parent company of PokerStars, that could be the position was snap-placed first thing on Monday morning.

An exciting and challenging new role has been created within our Global Support department for a manager who will be responsible for building, publishing and maintaining our global schedules across all time zones and local offices.

Of course, there’s no way to be sure, but you have to think that the poor guy who cost his company $260k was at least demoted, if not outright terminated on the spot. While there’s been a few whispers that this is indeed the job, you have to keep in mind that PokerStars is a massive company always looking for people to do a variety of jobs at any given time so it could be coincidence.

But if it IS that job in particular, you have to figure whoever gets it is going to have a little leverage on salary, I mean the last guy cost them no less than $260k this month alone!
