    If Spain and Italy can't work it out after 2 years, I guarantee US regulators won't act any quicker, hence I don't believe player pools will ever be merged again.


    They're gonna have one heck of a time over here just figuring out how the domestic interstate poker compacts are going to work. The big states are going to want bigger pieces of the pie than the small states, different tax rates, different regulation, different lobbyists......

    Would like to see Party Poker in the scene. I always felt the hands received was legitimate in the day.

    God I hope not. One company with that much market share is bad for the industry IMO.

    You must not have played there in a while. The games, outside of tournaments, suck compared to other sites. Sure they are plentiful, but the quality of them is poor and if you're playing mid-stakes plus, you need all kinds of automated seating scripts and extra software to even have a chance at competing and getting a decent seat!

    True that I stopped playing at Stars a long time ago. With the extra rake and new foreign exchange fees I doubt I will be returning there anytime soon. Even the micro stakes cash games suck comparatively speaking.

    Yes, I think Amaya will make PokerStars much more profitable with their sportsbook, casino changes and additional squeezing of poker players. However, the experience for poker players, especially winning poker players, is going to greatly diminish in quality. I suppose that opens up opportunities for other sites though

    Pokerstars' edge is they established their brand during the years where most operators vacate the US market. And even after all the negative press, when US players go play poker online, their first online destination that comes to mind is Pokerstars.

    Curious to hear if anyone is having good success with New Jersey so far? Also, are you seeing PokerStars revenue change much since the new rules went into effective for time limiting earnings off players?

    Default Legalize!

    I just hope it happens. If horseracing is allowed, then poker should be allowed. Both are sports, both are bet on. Heck! Even Wall Street is the biggest gamble with major limits and available for individuals who are not licensed brokers.
