i've obviously missed something here? granted i've not been paying attention to the news of late. what's the barrier to re-entry?

along with the rush poker trademark maybe?
stars already has rush.

I'd guess the email list for players who don't also already have stars acounts would be small.

So yeah I think it is mainly the chance of future US earnings vs gamble that the US market is ever reopened to them.
i'm not really understanding why people are surprised that pokerstars is interested in buying full tilt. it's surely more common for purchased companies to be acquired by competitors than by outsiders?

the question is, does full tilt have value? are its assets and brand worth owning? if the answer is yes, then it has more value to pokerstars than to anyone else, since pokerstars already know what they are doing in this industry.
