This story involves a dentist office, a porn site, a shady company, major casinos and massive bidding war – and don’t worry its SFW – it is the Marriott, Starwood Hotels and Anbang fight.

It had three players, six bids, and nearly reached $14 billion dollars in value. Now the Anbang, Marriott, Starwood drama has it’s very own infographic.

If you struggled to track who made which bid when, and are left puzzling over why China’s Anbang Insurance went from the world’s boldest buyer to the globe’s quietest company, we hope our blow-by-blow guide to the bidding war will help.
