    Never saw this one coming!! Stars buy Tilt! Stars buy Tilt!!

    I'm trying to live blog it here http://i-reraise.blogspot.co.uk/

    but heres the cliffs

    it doesnt get taken down, mods confirm without confirming, noahsd says it isn't lies.

    Chillipoker CEO tweets: alex_dreyfus Pokerstars buys FullTilt for a consideration of $750m, including settlement with DOJ and full balances of players (330m). I'm impressed.

    more as I can get it.. Excited!

    Looks like this might be true.

    Not sure what to think of it if it is true. Obviously it's good news for those people with money stuck at FTP, but going forward, Stars having a virtual monopoly on online poker can't be a good thing.

    Would be great, but the list of goodies includes FTP being open to the US. That seems very unlikely and so puts the rest in doubt. Someone is just stirring a shite storm if you ask me.

    Hmm, I see that the US thing is from shaundeeb. Very unlikely that that is true, but maybe the rest and we get our monies.

    Well, if Pokerstars has any hope of ever getting back into the US market someday it makes sense to settle with the DOJ-US govt and then with all of us players who got screwed. Sure, PStars paid us all back promptly and I thank them for that,but to make all of the poker players whole again who lost their rolls on FTP sure would go along way to restoring "good faith" in this shattered thing called online poker for those of us who live in the US.....

    Seems the Wall Street Journal and Reuters are both confirming that PokerStars is in talks to buyout Full Tilt.
