Default Full Tilt Bought by Pokerstars, Everyone is getting paid

Seems like I get the honours of making the thread

http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/29...flush-1228753/

Congrats to anyone with significant funds tied up there, I had just withdrawn 90%+ of my roll to go play live so I only have low three figures there from memory, but it's HUGE for the guys with five figs etc.

Day of celebration for those of you with a lot there, glad this saga is coming to an end, I never lost hope that tilt would end up getting bought.

Also, long live Pokerstars!

It's on Pokerstars website, and Diamond flush's. I even broke the news an hour late when the info was already on stars website. Your internet search skills must not be so good.

not that i can find, it's certainly absent from their press release page.

it's on their blog i'll grant you, but that isn't where a sane person is going to go to find press releases, especially when he has to rush to be first to reply to a thread...the blog post also links to their press release page, where there is still nothing...that or my isp are filtering it because it's got a naked ten year old on the cover.

i said a halfway reputable news site, not a dirt sheet run out of someone's basement.

i'll certainly hold my hands up to that. i foolishly restricted myself to press releases and business news. i'll know to include rumour mills next time.

KC, the PokerStars press release has been available since this news first broke yesterday. It's been linked to on the Stars/Tilt buyout link dump page. Also, Diamond Flush is the stone cold nuts and has been an invaluable resource in digging up information pertaining to Black Friday sites.

I still don't get how poker stars profits from this, but people with a lot more money than me apparently see the value. Good news for those waiting.

The NY Times article is really bad. It suggests stars is paying all this money as punishment for something it did wrong.

mm delicious chronology.

someone go to www.pokerstars.com/press/ and tell me what the most recent update on that page is please. i get forwarded to a .co.uk page that's had nothing new for a week.

we differ in what we consider a reliable news source. when someone does a half a billion dollar deal with the DOJ, I'm reading about it in the business news.
