Playing Poker at Poker Stars

Poker Stars is home to the 2003 and 2004 WSOP champions.

Depositing

Poker Stars currently offer the following ways to deposit :

Poker Stars


Poker Stars is one of the only sites which dont offer a sign up bonus - they do have a rewards system called Frequent Player Points though.

Software

Poker Stars The software is very straight forward and should load quickly on your pc. The chat box isnt huge however they do allow you to upload your picture or avatar so that it appears next to your name at the table. The design isnt the most advanced but it doesnt need to be - its plain design all you have to do is concentrate on is poker.

There is a note system plus you can block out chat from specific players which comes in handy when theres someone at the table you dont like mouthing off.

Stakes

The lowest limits at Poker Stars are the $0.02/$0.04 tables. They go all the way up to $100/$200 tables. Something for everyone!

Site Traffic

Poker Stars are one of the busiest poker sites on the web - the lowest ive seen it have is 10,000 players which is usually nighttime in North America. It's not a site you have to wait about for tables to fill.

Tournaments

Poker Stars have a good choice of tourneys. Their most famous tournaments are obviously their satelites to major tournaments such as the world series of poker - so far two WSOP champions got through to the final due to these satelites. Their sng's fill up quite quickly but my fave is the heads up games you can have.

Freerolls

Poker Stars have a lot of freerolls. However, the money at these arent the best and they're usually over subscribed - eg thousands of people fighting over a few hundred bucks. Neverless, it gives newbies plenty of options - plus a lot of sites, including Texas Hold Em Forums, run freerolls via Poker Stars.

Bonuses

Poker Stars is one of the few sites to not actively offer bonuses. So if your a bonus whore, go elsewhere.

Conclusion

Poker Stars is one of my favourite poker sites on the web. The design is a bit bland, they dont offer bonuses but if you just want a good place to play poker then you cant go far wrong with playing at Poker Stars.
