yeah. i'm assuming that these aren't a feature of the 750 figure.

how much of those debts are debts to players though? ie player funds? because those aren't going to go flying out the door.

And alot of those people surely would already use Stars.
just like they did 18 months ago.

there are a number of advantages to having multiple brands in a single marketplace. that's why yum owns pizza hut, kfc and taco bell, why general motors owns buick, chevrolet and cadillac, and why unilever owns almost 100 home and personal care brands.

I'll be surprised if it comes to fruition.
it would certainly be in pokerstars interests to drive the price up...and doing the former owners a favour couldn't hurt.

i'm pretty sure PS will try to purchase FTP. not because they think its worth the 750m, but for other reasons:

- be cool w/ the DoJ and get the chance to enter the us market if regulated
- publicity
- get rid of a potential competitor
- Dikshit did it, and so will scheinberg. buy a 'don't go to jail' card

if anyone doubts the rumor, i can only say, that the WSJ had an article about it, and i'm sure they have their sources.

Apparently some statement from FTP/Stars is expected by the end of the month.

I hope so! Give me my money back you shits!

Can't even remember how much I had on the site it was so long ago, like $500 or some shit?

Be a nice lil BR boost if the deal is done.

PS have proven themselves to be trustworthy and shit, with more assets they will (in the voice of Bill Fillmaff) "DOMINATE!".
