The King is doing the weekend update for his readers1. Full Tilt Poker.

There was another round of hopeful articles published earlier this week regarding the Full Tilt Poker situation.

According to an eGamingReview article that was published on Wednesday, "Groupe Bernard Tapie is expected to complete its acquisition of Full Tilt Poker before the end of next week." According to the site, Tapie is in the final stages of closing the deal and recently secured an additional investor to help finance the acquisition.

Will a deal be closed soon, or will Full Tilt Poker customers be forced to endure more delays?

2. "Zoom" Poker Real-Money Public Beta Launches.

Earlier this week, Pokerstars launched the real-money public beta of "Zoom" poker, which is Pokerstars' answer to the phenomenally popular "Rush Poker" that was formerly offered by Full Tilt Poker.

For now, there are currently four games of No Limit Hold'em and four games of Pot Limit Omaha running for "Zoom" poker (two real-money microstakes and two play money for each game). A maximum of 1,500 players are allowed in each game.

Pokerstars continues to tweak "Zoom" poker. Once the company has the product working perfectly, a full release is expected with additional games and higher stakes being offered.

3. "Superstar Showdown".

Viktor "Isildur1" Blom and Alexander "Kanu7" Miller will be doing battle in the "Superstar Showdown" on Pokerstars this weekend. The two players will be playing 2,500 hands of $100/$200 No Limit Hold'em, with the winner being the player who is ahead at the end of the 2,500 hand challenge.

The Blom/Miller matchup is expected to get underway at 12 pm ET on Sunday afternoon.

HighStakesDB recently posted an interesting interview with "Kanu7", which you can read here.
