It’s a deal, it’s a steal, it’s the poker Sale of the fucking Century!

The successful relaunch of PokerStars Full Tilt is good and bad poker news for the industry, players and the old owners of Full Tilt Poker.

Full Tilts non US and non regulated markets players are rejoicing at the return of their bankrolls, the software and Rush Poker. But not rakeback.

PokerStars are rejoicing at the successful relaunch of FTP when a lot of players were adamant they would never play on Full Tilt again … but as its now PokerStars owned …

It's a deal, it's a steal, it's the Sale of the fucking Century!

Sale of the Century

PokerStars are also rejoicing at having been giving the poker Sale of the fucking Century when FTP’s previous owners were forced into it. With the purchase being made ironically partly using PokerStars ‘illegal to the DOJ’ rake and deposits through the same financial systems that partly destroyed Full Tilt.

Full Tilts owners must be watching the actions on FTP2 and thinking about all that rake and how much they could have got for Full Tilt or how much they should have got if the DOJ had not decided on creating the online poker monopoly that will have long term effects we wont be able to appreciate at the moment.

And what of Full Tilt Poker affiliates who will not only not be paid previous money due but have lost their entire sign ups? Who they can not sign up again. Can PokerStars not afford to pay them as they are now not paying affiliate fees on a massive database and paying less rakeback? Although they will not could PokerStars pay them in the future or at some cent to the dollar compensation?

PokerStars, the previous owners of Full Tilt Poker and their affiliates must be saying the same thing but with it having totally different meanings …


Nick the Greek: Dunno. Seems expensive.
Tom: Seems? Well, this seems to be a complete waste of my time. That, my friend, is 900 nicker in any store you’re lucky enough to find one in. And you’re haggling over 200 pound? What school of finance did you come from Nick? “It’s a deal, it’s a steal, it’s the Sale of the fucking Century!” In fact, fuck it Nick, I think I’ll keep it!
Nick the Greek: All right all right, keep your Alans on!
Nick the Greek: Here’s a ton.
Tom, Eddie: Jesus Christ!
Eddie: You could choke a dozen donkeys on that! And you’re haggling over one hundred pound? What’re you doing when you’re not buying stereos Nick? Finance revolutions?
Nick the Greek: 100 pound is still 100 pound.
Tom: Not when the price is 200 pound it ain’t! And certainly not when you’ve got Liberia’s deficit in your skyrocket. Tighter than a duck’s butt you are. Now, lemme feel the fibre of your fabric.
