Last week we talked about how Amaya Gaming purchased The Rational Group for a mind-boggling $4.9 Billion. The Rational Group owns two of the most popular online poker sites called; Full Tilt Poker and Pokerstars.
Since the news broke, some additional details have been released about the sale and the new structure of the company. The founders of The Rational Group, Mark and Isai Scheinberg will be stepping down from the company, once the merger has been fully completed. However, the operational executive team and all other employees of the company will be kept on.
Amaya Gaming has also stressed that players at Pokerstars and Full Tilt Poker will still receive the same standard of high quality play and that they are simply aiming to make the sites available to more people legally across America.
