It’s fantastic - been waiting for this.

The promotional tournaments (NY day 50$ 50k and 100$ 100k) both surpassed their guarantees.

the 100k guarantee - 2 day tournament actually doubled its prize pool - pretty awesome to see.

As a tournament only player - I’m hyped.

I'm waiting for pokerstars and similar sites to be open to all of the country and able to play against other countries around the world rather than fencing off player pools to within a state. However, this news between NJ and MI is great news and doubly better for me being a resident of Michigan :)

Reeeally cool...

Hopefully these are the first steps to make it legal throughout the whole country again.

Kinda been wanting to have US players in PS also.

Want to see if there's a pattern in their play style.

It's good news for only a few US players. I'm not sure I understand how that will be bad news for the rest of the world?

It would be wonderful if we could ALL play on PokerStars together but sadly that is not the case and likely won't change in our lifetimes.

Hopefully Ct is on the short list of the next to open. We. Allow antasynsports and they are even allies with the casinos foxwoods and Mohegan. Pretty sure Mohegan operates in a state with Pokerstars so hopefully they get the legislation etc together.

They will be able to play with the rest of the world, because when I started at pokerstars 6 years ago, I noticed that Americans only played for play money, not the real game. Then I went to research, and found out that pokerstars was banned from the United States for fraud.

The horse racing lobby in my state will never allow online poker I'm afraid.

Not true , full Tilt was taken down for fraud , Pokerstars paid off their debts and let Full Tilt players outside of US transfer their account including their funds to PS

The fraud accusations where the perfect excuse for politics to implement stringent rules on gambling.
PS left the US market

And now American people will be able to play on pokerstars with players around the world, or just among Americans.

Americans will be allowed to play poker with folks in regulated states. In this case on PokerStars only, the players in Michigan and New Jersey will be combined - no other players will be joining them at this time.
