The World Series of Telecom Poker: DISH Network Corp. (DISH) vs. SoftBank

DISH matches that by calling SoftBank’s control of Sprint a national security threat. The “sale of wireless and wireline infrastructure with national strategic importance to a foreign company will weaken the security of the United States,” DISH wrote the FCC.

Fifth card — face down:
Son peeks at his last card, and considers what DISH Network Corp. (NASDAQ:DISH) might have. That hand could hold four Queens, a Queen-high full house, a Ten-high full house, three Queens, three Tens, or, at worst, a pair of Queens.

Suddenly, he raises by having SoftBank try to undercut DISH’s playing of the foreign-control card, agreeing to have the U.S. government have veto power over one SoftBank appointed director to Sprint’s board.

Ergen squints at his last card, and ponders. SoftBank is showing the Ace of Diamonds, Two of Diamonds, and Four of Diamonds. That’s a possible straight flush, straight, three Aces, or a pair of Aces – or nothing, with Ace high.

On the face of it, Ergen’s two Queens showing beats SoftBank’s Ace high showing. What could DISH meet SoftBank’s latest challenge with? And should DISH meet it?

Ergen is looking at his chips and thinking.
