I am sure most of the show surrounds the likely revival of the Pokercast League right? Excited to listen.

In all seriousness though, I'm very hopefull that the DOJ makes this as painless for players as possible. We'll see what happens...

Re: PokerCast Episode 232 - PokerStars Settles with DOJ & Acquires Full Tilt Poker Assets

Great show guys! I especially appreciated the obvious effort both you and your guests made to clarify when you were talking about known facts and when you were speculating. You got a lot of good info out there while also raising many important questions for future resolution, and that's truly the best you could have done with such a big and evolving story.

He was having dinner with Howard Lederer at Ellis Island. The two were discussing the remissions process for U.S. players.

I don't why, but since hearing about this deal I've just been imagining Howard Lederer scurrying out from under a rock:

"O HAI GUISE. GLAD I GOT IT ALL SORTED FOR YOU. K?"

Probably not, but I do wonder how long before we have an HL sighting though.
