That would make sense, is Showboat AC not the last of the Showboat brand?

I believe it is the last Showboat around

I think this sets it up perfectly for CET to purchase Revel

Which tells me they are out on Revel....which means Caesars buys Revel??? Sorry Ace, I usually believe your AC sources but this makes zero sense for HR if Caesars gets Revel. This is the worst deal for these people since Manhattan. What is Loveman.....an Indian Giver.

Note, I am all for Daniel Snyder changing the name of his NFL team, so I am clean on these comments.

I agree with that, and Caesar's buying the property of Atlantic Club with no intention of operating a casino at that location makes even more sense if they were planning on selling Showboat the whole time.

I never claimed CET would buy Revel - that was my speculation after hearing that Hard Rock bought Showboat

Understand, but who else is left as a qualified buyer. I always thought it was down to these 2. Take one away and you are left with....Loveman and crew

I'd believe it if they purchased both casinos, but not Showboat by itself. Credible people have mentioned seeing Hard Rock executives at Revel but no mention of Showboat I've heard.

If they bought Showboat, Loveman would just be tricking them into allowing them to get Revel. I don't see both properties being a fit besides their close proximity to each other though, but this is as it currently sits without any kind of remodel.
