French online investment firm Groupe Bernard Tapie reportedly attempted to poach some of Full Tilt Poker's managers over the past week, however most of the employees in the company's Dublin office turned the offer down.
The move came as GBT CEO Laurent Tapie emailed offers of employment to some employees of Full Tilt Poker, revealing that his company would be developing a new poker software and launching a gambling firm in Paris.
The offer was reportedly turned down by most of the Full Tilt Managers, who are sticking things out as the company is waiting to be bought out by another third party.
Last month GBT announced that its proposed deal to purchase Full Tilt had fallen through, as reports that gambling giant PokerStars planned to purchase the troubled poker site began to surface.
