Detailed Review

Poker Stars is a phenomenon unlike no other, with a massive player base, a list of professional players on staff that supercedes itself, and provides players with more opportunities to go to big ticketed events like the WSOP and WPT than any other room on the net.The company has been in business since 2001 and has since than built a solid foundation for what can only be said as the worlds largest online poker room. The rooms success is based on customer satisfaction, a reliable gaming experience and financial security that is second to none.

The competition at Pokerstars is impressive to say the least. The room literally never sleeps making both ring tables and real money tournaments well populated at all hours. With this you can expect to find some challenging players at the mid stakes and above with almost every available game obtaining a high level of traffic. Play at the micro and low limit tables can range from average to very loose with many beginners seeking out the low stakes. Game variety is available at a wide range of stakes making this room popular not only among highly skilled players but even beginners. Poker Stars is one of the ideal poker rooms for any player at any skill level.

Ring games are very popular at Poker Stars mainly due to the wide variety that is offered.The traffic is fairly heavy through peak hours with the poker room easily reaching in excess of 14,000 players online. Even in off peak hours you will still find plenty of action and a choice in tables throughout the various stakes. Rake is set at the industry standard of 5%, they also support the no flop no drop rule. Players can also sit down and play with any of the Team Poker Stars players who can be found using the search feature in the menu.

Tournaments are not just huge they are massive in both player base and prizes with some of the world's largest guaranteed payment tournaments available online. Poker Stars tournament schedule features games running around the clock making qualifiers and satellites to some live events available at any given hour.

Pokerstars bonus is available to new players signing up through our tracker and provides you with a 100% match up to $50. It is less than the industry standard however players will see that the room and added money tournaments more than make up for the lack of bonus. The bonus is released in increments of $10 through regular game play. This bonus is fairly easy to clear and as an added benefit your comp points can be used in the Pokerstars store for apparel, seats to some big games, books etc. The store e is packed with anything an avid player could want.

The software is updated on a regular basis with downtime being next to non existent. The lobby comes equipped with filter options removing any unnecessary games that you do not want displayed and allowing players an easy to use navigation system. Each of the categories for tournaments and ring tables is clearly marked with tabs. The room provides players with vital game statistics which can be accessed through the menu options located at the top of the screen or at the tables or you can have your hand history emailed to you for future reference. Speed is an absolute must with Pokerstars and very rarely do they ever experience down time. The software provides players with custom table themes as well as avatars that can be uploaded for personalization along with the ability to multi table with no difficulties while doing so.

Support is only available through email. Even with this you can expect the room to give you top quality service in this area. Many of the big networks end up slacking in support probably due to mass volumes of enquiries. Pokerstars does not, you will receive a response from them in what can be less than 30 min. Overall considering the size of this room the response time is superb
