Harrah’s buying PartyPoker?

by , Nov 15, 2007 | 12:48 pm

Business Week is reporting that Harrah’s may be shopping around to acquire an online poker site in the U.K. How awesome for poker would that be? Imagine if Harrah’s owned an online poker site and players from all over the world (except the US of course) could qualify for the WSOP online. I’d take over 10,000 entrants for the next WSOP for any amount you can count.

    Let the conspiracy theorists go nuts with this little nugget.

    I was thinking more along the lines of comps at the hotels…

    SOS, comps only happen when you play the ASS LINE strong.

  • son of sue

    You know the ASS LINE always plays.

  • i hate to sound stupid.. .but wouldnt the ceo of harrahs then have to leave the country for fear of going to prison? it doesnt seem to matter to the us government if your site allows or doesnt allow us players…

    but if this does happen it means that harrahs is prepared to put the bucks up to get online poker legalized in the good old US of A. and other corporation casinos will follow suit.

    good for poker.

    You seem to be forgetting Steven Lipscomb and the WPT, who have an online site.

  • honestly, nothing could make me happier than if this were to take shape. now if only one of those entities owned wsop.com.

  • By the way, speaking of pending marriages and matches made in heaven … big congrats to Mr. Goldfarb and Green Lisa who probably at this very moment are consummating their blogger love.

    Rumor has it that they tied the knot yesterday. I have tried to get them to live-blog their nuptials and honeymoon, but for some reason neither of them right now are returning my calls.

  • You did get married, though, right?
