I saw a mention of this acquisition in a newsletter and figured this would be of interest to many people here since it might allow Pokerstars and Fulltilt back into the US online poker market. Here's a link to a story from the Toronto Globe & Mail:

And here is a link to Amaya Group's press release on the acquisition, which is expected to be completed by the end of September.

  1. I saw this on another site as well ,hopefully this is good news foe on line poker in the U.S.,I don't play the stocks but almost want to dip my toe in here

  2. I don't see how this can hurt anyone other than WSOP, PartyPoker and other sites that will be competing.
