Sharing the wealth is not a phrase that you would instantly think of where poker is concerned. And this was certainly true of the innovative PokerShare.com, which after a few months of trading, collapsed acrimoniously at the back end of 2005, with legal action being sought and players left short of cash.
Well, it seems that despite all this, the site is all set to make a miraculous return this week, after settling its disputes and partnering up with new companies. The initial idea was to offer players who registered the chance to earn back the profits of the site. It proved an instant hot but came unstuck when its partner, Excapsa Poker Network, realised that it was taking away business from its other sites, most importantly UltimateBet. Excapsa got mad and banned US players, withdrawing their software in the process. What followed was an English court battle, although this was quickly settled, allowing PokerShare to team up with Tain Network and relaunch as before.
So, if all that makes sense, it could just be the place to win and make a mint in share profits in 2006.
