select * from Addressupdate where playerid not in (select playerid from AddressMaster)

this may perform better

insert into AddressMaster
select * from Addressupdate u left join AddressMaster m on u.playerid=m.playerid
where m.playerid is null

INSERT INTO AddressMaster (Playerid, street, city, state, zip)
SELECT Playerid, street, city, state, zip FROM AddressUpdate
WHERE NOT EXISTS (
SELECT m.Playerid, m.Street, m.City, m.State, m.Zip
FROM AddressMaster m
INNER JOIN AddressUpdate u ON m.Playerid = u.Playerid AND
     m.Street = u.Street AND
     m.City = u.City AND
     m.State = u.State AND
     m.Zip = u.Zip
)

(From the way you asked the question, I'm assuming that some of the data in AddressUpdate is already in AddressMaster.  Otherwise the simple SELECT statments will work fine.)
