I hope stars does not get back in. We need a truly American site covering all 50 states and allowing international players.


While I agree with suvivorman that we need a truly American sites service all states who choose to participate, I think not letting Pokerstars back in would be like not letting foreign players play at the WSOP and other American Tourniments and if we lock international sites out of our market they will lock us out of the rest of the world market and the game of poker would suffer as a result.
Personally i always liked playing on stars and they were the best site to play on at the time I would venture to still the best site out there today.
Would I like to see Stars comeback? Yes but there would be a few caveats one they would either have to have a land based casino operation in this country or they would have to set up technical support staff in the US to solve customer issues and more importantly employ American citizens.
And with the exception of Bovada (UB and Absolute Poker are history) we should encourage sites who are currently offering real money games to come in from the could once a licensing regime is set up.
Its seems with its possible purchase of the Atlantic Casino Pokerstars would meet the caveats needed for a return to the US Market and buying a failing casino would not only allow people to play on there favorite site but would also save US jobs which are still important in this fragile recovery.
Again I will say this Pokerstars is the best site out there and they set the bar pretty high, having said that I always would like to see something come from the US Market thats even better and I believe it can happen but it would happen overnight and the likely of homegrown online pokerrooms that are even better than stars are years away.
