PokerStars.net Real Money Review

By: KJames

Poker Stars is the largest online poker room in the world and accepts players from nearly every country including the US. Poker Stars has refined software that may not look pretty but is very functional and players have come to swear by the simple, fast and no frills software. Poker Stars runs the largest poker tournaments including a weekly million dollar tournament and has multiple guaranteed poker tournaments happening hourly.

Poker Stars is known as having above average players and I would have to agree. The poker skill level is pretty high with most players competent and you won't find many weak players at their mid to high stakes games. Though, Poker Stars does a lot of advertising their Poker Stars.net website and this does bring in beginners to their lower limits that can be fish.

PokerStars.net Bonus Code

Poker Stars has recently updated their bonus and have matched other poker sites giving away up to $600 dollars! They now offer a first time deposit bonus of 100% up to $600 dollars. This is one of the best bonuses of any poker room because players have 3 deposits to claim the full $600 bonus. It is also relatively easy to clear with 17vpp's per $1 dollar and the money hits your cashier account in increments of $10 dollars.

Poker Stars has frequent reload bonus codes that allow players that already have an account a chance at an additional bonus if they decide to deposit. In my opinion, I like this better because I would rather have frequent reload bonuses than a large first time deposit bonus because once you run through your first time deposit its nice to know you can have another bonus chance later down the road.

www.PokerStars.net Software

Poker Stars has the industry standard poker room software. It doesn't look like anything special but it is very functional. The cashier is nicely laid out and allows you to check your real money and play money account status and check how many Frequent Player Points (FPP) you have earned.

One of the things that Poker Stars does exceptionally well is allowing players to multi-table. You can easily have 4 tables open and resize them so they can fit on nearly any size monitor. If you have dual monitors or really good eye sight you can have even more than 4 tables open!

Poker Stars.net Real Money Cash Games

If you are looking for a cash game then Poker Stars has hundreds for you to choose from. The poker room has so many players that it has action at any limit and any game including less popular games like Omaha, Stud, Razz, HORSE and Hose.

One great thing about having so many tables to choose from is you can be picky and find a table that will suit your poker game. You can sort the games by Average Pot, Plrs/Flop, H/hr you can also view players stacks that are sitting at the table. With so many players and tables you are bound to find the perfect poker game.

Poker Stars Tournaments

Poker Stars has so many tournaments it is almost hard to find what is starting and what tournaments are coming up. I have found that sorting by the date and scrolling down to registering which will be about mid way down is the way to go. The tournaments at Poker Stars have a large amount of player entries with guaranteed tournaments usually 500+. I usually don't play many tournaments at Poker Stars because I do much better with smaller fields. Players who like to go for the big score and like to play in large tournament fields will love playing tournaments at Poker Stars.
Just remember to clear your schedule because Poker Stars tournaments are usually 6+ hours. They have huge final table prizes so players can accumulate a large bankroll from just one tournament score.

Poker Stars currently offers a weekly $1.5 million dollar guaranteed poker tournament every Sunday (the largest weekly poker tournament in the world). Along with a $750k Warm-up event and a $300k Second Chance event.

Poker Stars is very good for qualifying for major tournaments that are played live at casinos around the world. They are currently running Poker Stars 2010 WSOP satellites and plan to send over 1000 players to the main event! They also run satellites for the WPT, LAPT, EPT and their large buy-in tournaments.

Poker Stars FPP

If you become a frequent player at Poker Stars, they reward you with a great VIP club. They keep track of your play with frequent player points (fpp) which are received when you pay rake in cash games or buy-in to tournaments.

They have 6 levels of VIP Status starting with BronzeStar, SilverStar, GoldStar, Platinum Star, Supernova and finally Supernova Elite. Each VIP level has benefits including special promotions and free tournaments for each VIP level with huge prize pools and are invite only.

Poker Stares.com also has an FPP store where players can use their points and buy small things like a shirt or hat all the way to flat screen TVs, buy-in's to live tournaments and even cars!

Poker Stars Deposits and Withdraws

Poker Stars makes it very easy to deposit and they accept Visa, Mastercard, Westen Union, Cash Transfer, Instant eChecks and money orders. I have never had a problem using my Visa or Mastercard and they have a very low minimum deposit of $10 dollars.

Poker Stars does a good job with player withdraws which is a concern for US citizens because waiting for a check is never fun. They say it can take up to 15 days for your check to come once they process it but in my experience it is much faster than this and is usually within a week.

Poker Star.net Support

Poker Stars is a bit lacking in this category because they only offer email support. I haven't really had to contact support often but when I do I have received a prompt response. They also have a FAQ section which does answer basic questions.
