Title:Great customer service0 out of 5 readers found this review helpful
The customer service is excellent.

The staff are really helpful and friendly, and get back to you really quick.

Any probs - they go that extra mile to sort it out.

Only problem with the site is you seem to get donked a lot.

Idiots that go all in with 2, 7, off suit will often beat your pocket aces!

But it's all fun and sometimes the donking works in your favour.

I'd recommend this site as well organized and treats customers really well.

@xaoXian, do your homework. Poker sites actually use offshore locations to dodge taxes. If you were a business owner, which I sincerely doubt judging by your general awareness, spelling and punctuation, would you rather pay 20-30-40% taxes on your $1B GR or 5-10%? Thought so.

5/10 for PS. Great service and client, but RNJesus rarely smiles upon me. Tons under all-in EV.

Title:coordinated effort0 out of 1 readers found this review helpful
I've been playing at pokerstars since 2008 and it's changed a lot. Back in the day there was amazing traffic around the clock. Playing these last few weeks i've noticed how much it's changed. Apart from sunday's when many, many professional users flock to the site:
- less frequent tourney's (MTT's).
- anything that hasn't got the title BIG in front of it barely gets any players anymore
- the house asks a bigger fee to play
- the SNG's barely fill up nowadays
- you see people with many stars (frequent players) playing at very low stakes which means either its because there's only so few games left or its really tough.
(i don't play cash games)

There were always claims about an unfair skew within hand generation and I've always had my own thoughts on this. Personally I think if pokerstars did have a strategy, it's to generate commitment and what better way to do that than to generate a bit of beginners luck. Very often someone is on a lucky streak. Gets dealt all the nice hands and/or wins with rubbish repeatedly to grow to a massive inflated size, leaving you crushed every time you get something decent.

My suggestion is that everybody that moves moves to the same site. That way once a decent site gets enough traffic, we can all move.

Title:Related Players at single table0 out of 0 readers found this review helpful

I've had all of the same experiences on poker stars that all before have mentioned. But today had some blatant cheating. I was playing a $7 50/50 1 table game. saw 2 individuals with the same last name but initials were different. Both were from united kingdom, and had a boxed position. They never competed against each other for hands. And funny enough they both ended up with the largest stacks at the table. I voiced my objections during play and to pokerstars afterwards. Still no response. Its obvious to me that they are not monitoring the play; Or maybe they are... I've spent a lot of time playing and studying the game over the last couple of years, in order to make some money at it. So its a bit of a disappointment to me that this nonsense goes on.

Title:An honest review.0 out of 4 readers found this review helpful
I've probably been the biggest critic of PS in the past. Bad beats, coolers, and set-up hands caused me to throw it in the same bracket as other sites i've played.

I gave myself a break from online poker and have since worked on my live game. I was already successful as a live player locally but i've really improved over the last 6 months. Anyway, about a month ago i decided to reload on PS. My only intention was use it as practice to further sharpen up my live game.

Since reloading, i've actually been pretty successful. I'm paying a lot more attention to the tables and have plugged a lot of the leaks in my game. In hindsight, there were quite a few.

What i've come to realise is that online players on PS are actually very good. Even in the micro's it's really hard to get them to separate with their money. I still suffer a load of bad beats on there, but i suffer a lot of them live too. (Though not quite as much) I can only take comfort from the fact that i've got my money in with the best of it and forced my opponent to get his/her money in with the worst hand.

Seriously, if you're blaming this site for going broke then you're pointing the finger in the wrong direction. Sure, it's not live poker. It's a slightly different game. But i would strongly advise everyone to work at their own game and be more self critical. Plug your leaks, be prepared to lose a bit of money to start with and you'll soon be playing better poker.

But be advised; Most players on PS play for hours on end every day and they're good.
