First site I ever played on, has improved no end since and thoroughly enjoy playing there then and now!! Nothing compares to the number of games and buy-ins anywhere online. Now with Homeclubs all the USA friends we have can play with us in any type of game :-))

I like this room because it has a great variety of games styles. A good field of players. Many leagues to play in. and there are always special games to play and you dont need many money to play there as you have all kind of buy-ins

I like to play zoom poker (omaha) at low stake. There is a lot of players and also the sit&go are really nice. Small stakes from .50 to 10$ and you don't have to wait for a player. Best poker site.

Im in USA so money play is not an option for me at this time. I still play in league games within the home game area. It makes the best place for this kind of play. A group/forum can make games up as they wish, when they wish and cancel them and make corrections themselves. These games are private to members making chat area more freeing knowing that the public is blocked from view. I have .com and .net downloaded on comp. I can play both but both are restricted to non money games. This was my first poker site so my poker name there is different than any other site. My avatar i capture was an animated alligator's eye with the reflection of a group of tourist in it......I'm from Florida so I thought I was being so clever coming up with it.As soon as USA is allowed to play money I'm so on it. hope it gets here soon.

I really miss playing on Pokerstars. There is so much you can do there. Tables fill fast. Mostly everyone I encountered was friendly. Before they closed down the US I heard there was bots setup there. Neverlose was one of them. Is that true? Can't always believe what you hear you know, but it's possible. Hands down, Pokerstars was the best site I ever played on. Hope they come back to US soon.

The Best site for playing poker . I have been looking for sites to play poker on and i came across pokerstars. I think its the best site for playing poker online they just need to allow usa players to play on real money tables thats the only down fall to the site other than that its a great site for playing poker

I LOVE STARS!!


I downloaded PokerStars in 2013 to participate in a forum's 'HOME GAMES. '

I did not realize that a few months later I would be playing poker everyday.
I can give the software a 10/10. PokerStars promotions are always outstanding !

I also joined PokerStars Online PokerSchool and try my very best not too miss a LIVE TRAINING event. This also recently in December 2013. With the different timezones the LIVE TRAINING events are usually in the early hours of my mornings. I make a point of not missing them
With me being a beginner poker player 'rookie'. PokerStars & it's School has everything I need to eventually become a better poker player.Now all I need to do is make some $ there and I will be ecstatic

There is only one downfall is the fact that Stars does not accept my poker friends from the US.
Maybe, just maybe one day that will change!

Best software I've played on, also has the most tournament/best value tournaments. There's buy in range's for every kind of player. The fields are massive but that can either be good or bad, one win can be your whole month, but the variance is insane. Support is good, usually get back really quickly, and if you need asap and write urgent in email its normally no longer then 5 mins of waiting. Very clean layout and easy to multi table on. The fpp/rakeback is also very good imo.

I had not been playing on pokerstars for awhile because my husband tends to play there on the weekends and i have so many other sites to play on I didnt want any conflicts. But my recent cashes kept me going back and playing more often during the week. The service is still top notch and I was amazed when i put in for a withdrawl on Stars to my Skrill moneybookers account. I got the email from Stars saying it was approved and literally 2 minutes later i got an email from Skrill moneybookers saying i had received funds. That can not be beat considering everywhere else we are waiting weeks upon weeks for our cashouts. I am so glad i found my way back to playing on POKERSTARS.

I just love the PokerStars site. I can not wait for them to come back to the United States with a strong comeback! I did enjoy their micro-games, double-ups, and especially all those guaranteed payout tourneys that start around 9 pm EST...
I can remember back in the day starting a guaranteed $5000 or so around 2 am, not really planning lasting/playing over 2 hours or so, but the game winded up lasting into the morning, like 5-6 hours...had to call in to work and tell them I would be late. Made a few bucks, but next time when I start a tourney I will plan on playing for more than 6+ hours...if & when that happens again!

Without a doubt, Pokerstars is the Cadillac of poker. They have the best customer service and best VIP system in the business, hands down. They always have a large listing of events and games are consistently lucrative.

Unfortunately, after Black Friday, PS is unavailable to US players, but hopefully that will change someday. For anybody else reading reviews, PS is your go-to room for anything poker related.

Black Friday took you away pokerstars and I miss you everday. Never did i have to wait to full up a micro tournament and could multiple table with the greatest of easy. Your fields were huge your promotions were good but your random hand generator was set to river bad beats still you were the best site by far.

Now in the dark days of poker I cant wait til I can one day get sucked out on by the river on stars!

I have to admit that PokerStars is one of the best I've found for the variety of games offered to players; the availability of Home Games to help limit players; and the overall support given at any time needed is something you just don't find at any of the other sites. I like the availability of allowing member changes though US are limited for much of what was allowed before Black Friday. It would be nice if some of this could be overlooked to allow for all members to get the same privileges other than playing the money games until that is resolved. One site, one attitude.

Used to be good til they disallowed US players to deposit or play freerolls.
It is easy to use and has good filters, but until it allows US deposits its boring.

Pokerstars offered so much for the players, and even when black friday happened they still showed why they are the best with quick payouts to all American players. They are by far the best site around they deserve a 10 star rating really.

When this site was in the USA. Its by far the best Poker site in the world. No other better site to play on. Has all games and every cash level from a penny to whatever you can afford. I only dream of them coming back to U.S. If you aint in U.S.A log on quick and start your roll. Join there league. Good luck.

I'd give Pokerstars 5 stars because it's the best online poker site.
But because US players can't play I'd give it 0 stars.

Thus I give it an average of 2 1/2 stars.

Sure wish I could still play on Pokerstars. I started my online poker career on Pokerstars and played there primarily right to the day the dropped WA State. So unfortunate, they are a cut above in software, support, and game selection. I'm fighting hard to help them return to the US, can't wait!

Pokerstars is by far the most reputable site there is , it's no accident it's still the biggest site there is even without the US market , the variety of games and tourneys available is unmatched ,
and the home game system is awesome , if there was any chance of
them letting US players back in I'd be first in line

Stars is the worst site for me.....seems I can't win a hand there. Play Chips of all things too!
Since USA players arent allowed to play for Real money the least they could do for us is allow us to rail friends from euro playing in real tourneys or ring games....

Ill give them 0 thumbs up .....yup ....they do love the Euros thats for sure...LOL

PokerStars it's in my oppinion the Biggest online poker platform in the world. the reward strategy is huge, being rewarded not only with vpp's but with fpp's too, and can play in tournaments, for cash or in sattelites with them so the reward is doubled.on pokerstars are subscribed millions of players and the diversity of the games is really huge.

I am starting with a question: "Why when i am nuts in one 3-players hand, one have second nuts and the third have always a good hand?" This site scary me a lot...and i can't imagine why...here is also a lot of poker! The biggest room from Terra have huge oportunityes to bring some changes in your life...but u must wait a little for it! My negative points:i couldn't withdraw no money from here...and i can't say i am a looser player in online games, have not a premium design that i ask from the biggest site from the world poker, the sounds make me crazy, the PROs ....who represent the company? There are to much! I guess 200 was great number of them...but daily appear new one....the freerolls are BAD...if u have no money u will die slowly for qualifing in the weekly freerolls ...when u of corse will be out with your dog- freetime, no? And after all...worry about Fulltilt ...that was bought by them!!!!! Jokerstars.

Poker Stars always had the best online tournaments with the biggest payouts but their cash games are 2nd only to Full Tilt. Now that they own Full Tilt, I would really like to see them implement some of the software of FTP on the Stars site (Chip animations, avatars, ect.). Cant wait for the day that US players are allowed back on both sites.

Poker Starsis one of my favorite poker site by far . The variety of games are unlimitedand it also has a lot of player traffic , each day compared to other sites . I alsoenjoy their Home Games feature that allows players and poker sites to set upand run their own games so that the US players can still play withfriends/clans/teams . Even though I’m Canadian , I still play on Poker Starsbecause of the decent competition that Poker Stars offers .

Poker starrs was one of the best poker sites on the net until black friday. it taught me that if you have patience when your playing 2000 to 3000 person freeroll and you can win you can win any where. maybe lol I did like poker starrs alot but now no more.I do not play now and I wonder if they got there hand in orther poker sites because in the U.S. that was ALOT OF MONEY being spent. my guess is yup. but it is just not the same.

For MicroStakes ya cant beat Poker Stars.

10c & under...zero rake
25c...2c rake
50c...5c rake

Compare that to Lock

10c...10c rake! Are you f*cking kidding me with the 100% rake?!?
25c...10c rake! 40% rake?!...again,are you shitting me?

So shop around.I realize some of you arent free enough to spend your hard-earned,already-taxed dollars & cents anywhere you damn well please,but for value & integrity,Stars is a cut<---get it?

Ps was my favorite when we could play there (we being U.S. players). favorite was the 1.10 and 2.20 sngs where u won $11 Sunday 1/4 million tickets. Also, you could use the tickets like cash and play in whatever games you wanted to play in. Could play in a lot of micros with those $11 tickets. Also had an afternoon 2.75 with gtd. 10 to 12 thousand.

Despite what many say, about this site being fixed, and what not. I do not think this is true. I have good days and bad days, and this site is very consistant with their hands.Depositing here is easy, as a Canadian, but withdrawing is a problem, as I do not win enought here to withdraw funds, so I cannot comment on it.
With the smileys, I can do without, but to each their own, some times comlcal, and other times annoying, as some go way overboard with it, oops, thats another site.
The addition of the smileys here is a nice touch, and makes it easier for some to give you an atta boy.

Good Luck all.

This has to be the clear cut number 1 poker site available. It has the most volume and the best selection. The software is very reliable, support is great. They handle cashouts quickly and responsibly. I can only dream about living outside of the USA to play on stars. They are the face of online poker. Best site out there without a doubt.

Poker stars is loads of fun, but I can only play for fun there and that really sucks. I know it is not their fault so I won't hold it against them. I use to load money on there and will again when it becomes legal for them to let me do so. It is one of my favorite rooms.

I love the new features that PokerStars has added (the BOOM replayer and the Home Games system) to the already good stuff that is there, i.e. customer support, amount of games, "traffic" and customizability. Sometimes you are on a poker site and you are looking for example a good Razz cash game and all the tables are empty....well not at Stars lol...there is always a game there in every poker game available. It would be very cool if real money for US players would return to Stars. The only downside I have with Stars at the moment is the fact that the Home Games system only limits you to ten clubs.

+ Available for Mac
+ Variety of games
+ Home Games
+ Customer support

- Home Games only limited to ten clubs

Never really played at Pokerstars until last week and I have to say that Stars is the best. 1- Great software - customizable (you can make SNGs one theme, MTTs another, you can have different themes for individual themes also. + they are ALWAYS updating/improving their software. It's better than FTP's. 2- unbeatable traffic -- you can get a game going at any time of the day 3- best support -- they respond quickly and are extremely knowledgeable. I've yet to see a poker room that has a tech team as competent as these guys. I've actually learnt quite a bit from them and I consider myself very tech-savvy. No surprise that they are the largest room in the world -- they win in every category. Pokerstars will always be the king of online poker. Besides, poker dreams are built here.

I enjoy their Home Games feature that allows players to set up and run their own games so that USA may still play with friends/clans/teams. The variety of games are unlimited. The recently added BOOM hand replayer is nice. In my opinion, their integrity is top notch as they were fairly quick to payout any monies owed after Black Friday hit.

Other than Im in the US.......stars is & has always been one of my FAV sites and was my absolute FAV until the BF bs........due to the huge # of daily freerolls that included any and every game one wanted to play! I also love the the 'home games' and the BOTC & RB rankings that are also there & am proud to be able to be a part of them all!!! Hope the day is here sooner than later to be able to once again play all the freerolls as well!!! I would be a happy happy girl! & miss playing them quite a bit!

I like this site, the flow and functionality of this one is very nice. My only issue is if your a tight player, you stand no chance. I've tested this theory. If you are tight the board doesn't fork for you, but you are playing loose, its like you'll river every time. I'm not the only one who's noticed this. A few people at my old work noticed that too. It's just not my favorite because of that and they are no longer aloud to let USA play for real money.
