The PokerStars software is top quality and a market leader. The slick design makes
it very easy for any player to navigate around the lobby and find a game perfect
for them. The table software makes multi-tabling very easy with a queuing system
that brings the next table that needs a decision to the front and pushes the most
recently played to the back. There are also many options to choose from to customize
your PokerStars playing experience.
CUSTOMER SERVICE - 9/10
Their support is regarded as the best in the industry with very quick and helpful
email responses. Although unfortunately PokerStars do not offer a ‘Live Chat’ feature.
TOURNAMENT SCHEDULE - 9/10
They also have the biggest and best tournament schedule if cash games aren’t your
scene. They do a weekly Sunday Million tournament with a guaranteed prize-pool of
$1,000,000 along with a $250,000GTD, a $200,000GTD and a $100,000GTD tournament.
They are also the home to the World Championships of Online Poker (WCOOP) and the
Spring Championships of Online Poker (SCOOP), two of the biggest tournament series
CASH GAME TRAFFIC - 10/10
PokerStars has by far the largest number of cash game players. They also have the
widest selection of games available. Their micro stakes are always a hive of activity
all around the clock with some fairly juicy games running at most times. The downside
to PokerStars is that a lot of good players use this site due to the ease of multi-tabling
so from the $0.50/$1 level and up, you will face some fierce competition.
RAKE - 8/10
The rake they charge is also one of the most competitive in the industry as they
take 1c for every 5c in the pot, whereas other sites take 5c for every 25c in the
pot, the PokerStars method makes it slightly cheaper than other sites.
Cash Games Sit & Go’s Multi-Table Tournaments
PokerStars is by far the biggest online poker room. They comfortably average over 20,000 cash games players at any one time with multiple tables running at any stake and any game.

Pokerstars is an awesome site for traffic and I can always find a game to play in. The software is one of the best I have played on and has many customisable options. Ou can also upload your own avatar which is awesome.
The customer support is generally excellent, I usually get a response to an email within hours of sending it and they are always very helpful.
The bonuses aren’t great for micro stakes players so you won’t earn loads of rakeback at Pokerstars but the games generally are softer than most so you can make up for lack of bonuses by playing the terrible players.
