Posted on 24 April 2012 by "T".
According to numerous sources, PokerStars has reached a settlement with the US Department of Justice (DOJ) to buy Full Tilt Poker and settle its outstanding legal matters. No official statements have been made by either sites so far, but according to Alex Dreyfus, CEO of Chili Gaming, PokerStars has paid $750 million to acquire Full Tilt and settle its outstanding legal issues with the DOJ - $330 [...]   Read more » PokerStars buys Full Tilt Poker?

Everyone knows the real value in the VIP system @ stars is only really seen by high stakes/volume players, such as Supernova.


This is true - and I think regardless of how they play it - it's pretty unlikely they would keep FTP 27%.

If Pokerstars buy FTP we will see a lot of changes in the classic FTP reward system (iron man, black card, rakeback). And we can say bye to the system FTPs dealt (hi contributed, as rake).

If pokerstars buy FTP we can say bye to the classic no deposit promotions we love. And say hi to reload bonuses.

damn thats some epic s**t!

lol Dlkiv, i know what you mean he does my head in these days Smile anyway was it stars you had a thing with you never said in that mystery post you did ages ago lol ive been wondering all this time i thought it was FT



@ Flippedchips and Arithmajik as well as to GoTrixo

I am not a fan of DN because I have met him during live play. I did not play against him but he was playing at a special tourney at same casino as me. We happened to be at the bar getting drinks when he came in and to tell the truth he is a jerk to many,( seen this), and was insulted that I did not want his autograph. I mean really why would I ? Hi style of play ,I am not a fan of or anything else about him . I have never been someone who has ever wanted an autograph from anyone,( managed a huge very well known nite club in Toronto and had many celebs in there and never once asked for an autograph from any). Seeing how he was to some who had no clue who he was,( and did not care when they found out), just turned me off. That is why I am not a fan of him, and as I said his style of play never amazed me or gave me any respect for him. Those are just my thoughts and opinions. Smile

@Flippedchips. No it was not FT or stars but a site that still exists and sorry still can't say. Smile

Allright im getting a better view now. Thats kind of silly to be insulted about someone not wanting an autograph. Can't blame you then, if its true. Probably being a Celebrity.. boosts your ego to no limits. But maybe he was just kidding?

Nah dear he was not kidding. He was not happy that not everyone knew who he was and those that did really had no interest in him. I personally had no interest in him, and really have never been in awe of any celebrity, but that is just me Smile

to be fair it is a big surprise- even though financially it may be wise, still this was totally unexpected...just interesting to see how will this be incorporated- two brands gonna operate separately- they are competing for customers? so how this issue will be treated...interesting times

Everyone’s talking about FTP and having the chance of playing there again. The most impaired with this situation would be Pokerstars, the biggest online poker company in the world, who would have again a big objector in it’s market. So what is the best way to eliminate this threat? Terminating it, buying it, now, even if they decide to keep it separate from Stars and with other promos, it will be money coming from two sides to the same pockets. Seems good to me, just don’t know if they will keep it separate or if they will regroup everything – this must be more like it.

I agree with you Fakiry. Pokerstars do the best for himself. No other site will use FTP soft and no other group will buy and relaunch FTP, removing a part of the business.

Ha ha, so Daniel is a bit of a deuche in real life eh? Heh heh, can't say I'm surprised, money and fame often does that to a person. Autographs are a funny thing too, I can't believe people often charge money just to give them.

Is that club you used to run still open?

Pokerstars should not use .com domain then the DOJ can seize it whenever they want. That's why a lot of websites switched to other domain like cakepoker, bodog, doylesroom.

GREAT ,( insert vomiting face thingy here ), now we get to see more of Daniel Negreanu !!

When I played online I did play at FT but have always hated PS. Hate DN even more. Just my thoughts but now I will never play at the new FT.

Because of 'Daniel Negreanu" I think we need a vomit 'facey" thing in the 'Insert smiley' thing from below.


what's wring with daniel,dlkiv? i think he's quite funny at times.
Smile

oops didn't read your 2nd post,now i know why Blink
