The times they are a changin’

Dave’s final table was devoid of the paste on logos that were a secondary revenue source back in the good old days.

Times change!

 

After months of speculation from the poker community, it’s now official… Oldford Group Limited, parent company of Rational Group, owner and operator of PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker, is being acquired by Amaya Gaming Group.

The total purchase price is $ 4.9 billion. The boards of directors of both Amaya and Oldford Group unanimously approved the agreement.  – Diamond Flush

How much of this is to white wash away the cloud of indictments still there after failing miserably in Atlantic City leaves open how much change this actually represents.

ADDENDUM:

The government in protecting us from ourselves and money launders has reduces us to this.

It helps show why P* is going away and a “new” ownership will happen.

    I think Dennis Phillips had several logos.

    And, if you’d been at a final table before Black Friday, you’d have 10K and got a cut of the rake when you played at the site as an associate pro if you did halfway well. And, had you won…

    Whatever Dennis had I doubt was a P* or FT logo. Remember Harrington at a final table with a green hat and a piece of black tape over a Boston Sock logo? I am guessing they are quite as stupid about logos now.

    Had it been in the Moneymaker era, Katy bar the door. There was some truly serious competition then.
