Checking Around Checking Around

In what seems to be fortuitous timing for PokerStars, the week that the online poker room starts leaking details of an apparently imminent launch in New Jersey—registered trademarks, player meetings and Senatorial teases dominated the headlines—was the same week that both partypoker/Borgata and WSOP suffer public embarassment.

“This whole situation really makes one look forward to pokerstars’s return” “Pokerstars can’t get here fast enough!” “Epic fail … Where art thou, Pokerstars?” “Looking forward to PokerStars for sure… hopefully they will be handled much better.”

These are all comments collected from two threads in the official customer support forums in the last week.
