7/31 Update: The deal has been confirmed!
After the disappointing rumors that were reported on last week, there is now good news floating around. It has been reported by various sources (first by Poker Players Newspaper) that the negotiations between PokerStars, Full Tilt, and the DOJ have come to an end.
This article has caused mass hysteria and speculation, mainly because there has been no formal announcement from the DOJ or PokerStars. However, kevmath and Diamond Flush have tweeted confirming good news is coming:
Diamond Flush @Diamond_Flush
Long awaited news coming at Diamond Flush Poker next few days. No speculation, no rumors, real news.
Kevin Mathers @Kevmath
Apparently, there will be an announcement regarding Stars and FTP on Monday. #staytuned ?
Both are very knowledgeable in the industry and have numerous inside sources. Although we can’t say what’s up yet, I think now is a good time to use the power of… ONE TIME!
We will report more on the story as it comes in.
