Juicy: PokerStars vs. Full Tilt

Poker after Dark snubbage

PokerStars won the battle of patch warfare by signing up 6 of the November Nine (and booking the win via Peter Eastgate, giving them four of the past six WSOP main event champs) … and now, apparently the fight grows, as word has it that PokerStars is forbidding its players from appearing on Poker After Dark — making the show that much closer to a full-on Full Tilt infomercial.

Personally, I’m having a hard time thinking of PokerStars players who’ve appeared on the show. But regardless, I think that means fewer special episodes — like there will definitely be no “Recent WSOP Main Event Champs Week”.

    Daniel Negreanu is a team pokerstars pro, so is Barry Greenstein. I think Chad Brown has been on as well. Humberto Brenes? Not sure, buy I seem to remember Vanessa Rousso on there too.

    Jason Alexander recently signed as part of their “celebrity team” surely wore a PokerStars logo. I’m sure that whatever squabble is between FTP and PS will be settled by the time they tape again (probably late April?)

    Speaking of Alexander, a note to Pokerpages: the episode with Jason Alexander was taped last year, so he will appear on Poker After Dark.

    I hear what you’re saying, and I thought of Negreanu, too … but really, didn’t think of him being a factor in too many episodes of PAD. When I imagine the show in my mind, it’s little red triangles all over the place.

    If PokerStars and Full Tilt were to merge, however, they could become a really powerful international bank.

    Yes, Daniel Negreanu is at PokerStars as well as Boris Becker

    C’mon, don’t tell me Boris Becker was on PAD. I don’t recall that! Have I just missed every Stars player to cross my late-night NBC eyepath? Matt Clark would be so pissed at me if that’s true.
