Let the Consolidations Begin!


Rumors have been swirling for weeks about an ensuing bumrush of online poker site consolidations, so it should come as no shocker that PartyGaming, the parent company of PartyPoker, the (former) online giant started by an ex-phone-sex operator and the unfortunately named Anurag Dikshit, and 888 Holdings are reportedly in prelim merger talks worth about $3B USD (or 1.6B pounds, if you’re into that kind of thing).

We’d have more to add on this, except both companies were such nancy boys after the UIGEA was passed that they make us sick and simply deserve each other. Kind of like when Anna Nicole and Howard K. Stern got hitched. No one was like, "Finally, true love prevails!" It was more like, "Those two fucking idiots deserve each other. Good luck with that."

    On your previous post about the WSOP it states that the Main Event will start on July 17th…. I believe this is incorrect since it states that the “Final table” of the Main event will start on July 17th… Not sure when that means the Main Event will start… My son is getting married July 7th so hope it doesn’t start that early !!!!
