Pokerstars Review


The biggest online poker site in the world.

Pokerstars players

First Encounter:

2003 was my first time playing online poker for real money at Pokerstars. I’m not gonna lie, vibe and design of Pokerstars then was boring and old. It took me sometime before I really gave Pokerstars a fair shot.

Back in 2002-03 the tournaments were not near the volume or prize pool they are today at Pokerstars. Then tournaments become larger and larger. Soon enough their were enough poker players you could play around the clock if you wished.



Poker Stars has cemented themselves as the top product in the international online poker industry.

Although they are still not operational in the U.S. (Since 2011) they probably have more players than all of the other sites put together, and that is no exaggeration.

There is no match for their tournament/satellite schedule, cash games, and sit & go selection.  They have games of all buyins, high and low, running 24/7.

They have the fastest and most reliable cash-out and deposit options, as well as a 100% deposit bonus up to $600 if you sign up now through Online Poker Pass.

Their customer service is primarily email based, but still very fast and top notch.

And Poker Stars’ stellar reward program that they offer their players is the icing on the cake.  No other online poker site can match them when it comes to giving back to their customers.

All in all, they are just the best product that there is currently in the online poker world. Full Tilt Poker comes in a fairly close 2nd in terms of best international poker sites.

They are also expected to join in on the emerging U.S. legal online poker market by 2015.


Everything.  Too many to list, they are the masters of the industry at the moment.

Could do better:

Service their American customer base by getting back into the states.  They want this just as bad as their customers, and look to make it happen soon.
