Exactly. That lousy $5.12 buyin. Otherwise I'd already be out of the game. I don't think it's H-3C, though, COMS itself as an ongoing concern is the fundamental problem. I can't judge whether they themselves are a sinking ship (like the mentioned 3 CEO's in a years time) just hoping to prop themselves up with a "real" concern, H-3C, or hoping H-3C makes them look better for a buyout pick. Yeah, personally, I like the buyout prospect better for myself, but again, with the cash they have sitting around, if they make a play to buy more of H-3C with that cash, it makes 3COM look even worse for my $5.12 investment.

Dang, I did better at the table last weekend throwing my $$$ into the pot than I am with 3COM today!
