Title:Some thoughts regarding losing.0 out of 2 readers found this review helpful
Really just 2 points to help you and any anger you may have towards losing on Pokerstars.
1) Just because you get AA, you don't automatically win every time. This is true in live also. It's ok to fold AA.
2) If you are playing small stakes, the players are mostly bad and will draw out on you a lot. It's because the money doesn't matter, it's not enough. Play tourneys where the buy-in is $100+.

Title:I will never figure people out0 out of 3 readers found this review helpful
Pokerstars has the best software, security and people working and all of you complain.

I will never understand this?????

Site is not rigged. It's the same everywhere. Bad beats are expected.

We ay different online. Just different.

There must be a reason why stars always has 10x more players than anyone??

There iphone app is amazing.

Site is just the perfect place to play poker.

Final note. Over the last 7 years, I was down over 50k. Since august 2013, I am now only down 20k. I checked my rankings.

I suggest you all stop crying.

Poker stars is the place to be.

Title:Hello0 out of 4 readers found this review helpful
Been playing on and off since late 2000's

Yesterday I folded KK preflop numerous times in my tourny. I ended up 6th. 4500. Not bad.

Got to be careful boys. Many set ups in poker. Online or live is the same thing.

Stop thinking it's rigged. It's not.

Whatnis rigged is your brain. Your brain can make you do and see things online. Make you play different etc...

Play smart and all will be fine.

Title:STOP RATING 1/10!!!1 out of 12 readers found this review helpful

I'm sick of reading how bad PokerStars is, because some idiot lost with AA! That's STANDARD! I'm a winning player and had some extremely bad weeks too. So what? That'S variance! Yes, that's annoying, but if you're good, you will win in Poker longterm. Even the best players out there will lose shortterm.

Why should Stars manipulate decks, so some $ 1.- SnG-Donk loses his money? Stars already got his money from the Rake. It's irrelevant, who wins the SnG. They already made a profit It just doesn't make ANY sense. Stars is that big, because they have the best software available. It's stable, well designed and easy to use and costumize! Sometimes the variance hates you, sometimes you'll win like crazy!

You see people playing 16+ tables? Guess what! They're not bots, they are pros! I'm one of these guys.

Title:My wish for online poker0 out of 1 readers found this review helpful
Is that all online poker sites get shut down, and there should only be 2 giant poker rooms for the entire world, that will be Pokerstars/Fulltilt as they are primaraly the same running owners, and the original giants of online poker which is Party Poker, between these 3 sites everyone will have a ball. You look at any other room online and its reviews and everyone is unhappy to say the least, this is my wish for online poker. Some will agree, some will even disagree, but at least with minimal poker rooms, there will be less complaints, your money will be safer in transit and payouts, and the traffic will be overbooming, its pretty annoying that there is over 20 Rooms to choose and the traffic is split for everyone else to get a share of the spoils. And I will give you my reasons why these 3 sites alone should be left standing. These are the top dog sites of online poker, Party started the whole boom, when Fulltilt opened, it grew massive before its Black Friday incident, but lets not forget that Fulltilt originally started RUSH POKER, and every online site has copied there form of rush, just a different name of it and their OWN rake rates, copyright in my opinion but other sites are still getting credit for their form of RUSH POKER. Then we move over to Pokerstars who totally annihilated Party in terms of traffic and gauranteed prize pools and satellites to extensive main events and 90%+ of professionals trust and play at Pokerstars. I do not know what more to tell you, these are the 3 biggest sites in my opinion and I am sure will be for now and always, Microgaming, Merge and ipoker and all these other networks are just leaches. I think its highly unlikely my wish will be granted, but it will happen if everyone does not support the smaller sites and moves over to these 3 sites because the smaller networks really on people to make their system grow, remember, its all about the people and what they want, any other site besides these 3 majors should be scared of this post because even they know its possible that they could be run to the ground if everyone decides to leave their micky mouse networks. One more thing, ipoker just made all there tables euros, and said goodbye dollar, we dont need you, have you even seen the new rake changes and rewards? you as a player are losing as you play longer than you did when ipoker was still playing in the dollar tabling, did you know that? Party Poker still has the same rates, its the magnitude of online. Then lets look at 888 poker besides it complaints, if you look at the traffic report, 888 is losing its traffic by the month, its traffic from 1/2c - 3/6c is the same, but from there up its going downhill, check the stats for yourself. Party Poker, Fulltilt, and Pokerstars is Thee Best Online Poker Sites and will be the Giants until proven otherwise or a brand new site launches which has a service better than Pokerstars, and the chances of that happening? Whos going to challenge Pokerstars? You tell me?

Title:pocket money0 out of 2 readers found this review helpful
Why is it that people that deposit $1000 or less into a site all claim the same thing here on Pokerscouts? All these reviews are not even information, its like reading total crap. Might as well tell me how your weekend was, and where you from and hows the weather up there. Cause I just see badbeat story's, I feel no sympathy for people who deposited and lost, because complaining about it on a forum is not what adults do, unless everyone thats posts these story's are under 18, I would not like to think that adults in this generation are this childish, but anyway life must go on, and to the player that lost his $40 bankroll, I will pray for you at church okay.

Title:A fair ground trick0 out of 1 readers found this review helpful
Pokerstars is one of the front runners in poker offering all types of structures and formats.

The prize funds are attractive and the buy-ins can be from as little as 10c.

I have played all of the major sites on the internet. I have found all internet poker to be flawed by fundamental errors.

Pokerstars as a higher variance ratio than most other sites, this is due to the high volume of players been attracted by the small buy-ins and big rewards offered at times.

People forget that internet poker is not poker, variations in process making the internet way, a different way to live.

Normal poker skills are not required, gamblers are welcome.

Online poker is nothing more than a fair ground trick, knock the coconuts off and you win.

Poker stars has more coconuts than any other site, the fish variance is great, and the fish love to chase .

However the fish on stars get lucky a lot, in fact a rigged conspiracy amount of times.
However, I hate to say this , it is not rigged, but it is process flawed that makes an illusion of corruption.

Title:Response num 10 out of 3 readers found this review helpful
If you dont like the site then you should not be playing on it, In my opinion I prefer fullilt better than pokerstars, and no, playing 12 hours a day is not healthy at all if you want to know, I will play 3 hours max on stars, or any site for that matter, but to be safe, 2 hours should be the limit because you start to feel tired after 1 hour of cash tables, tournaments is a much better format, because its slightly less stressful, and sure, people go through bad swings on a cards, or constantly as you put it, I make most of my money on players mistakes and catching them on bluffs, getting it in with the best hand preflop on on the flop I consider poker disasters, anything can happen and this is where players get frustrated with the most 'unbelievable beats' so its been put out there.

but as a whole, the cards itself is not manipulated, the problem that people face in the low - med level limits is the amount of recreational players in the game and they are 100% sure thing to be playing bad hands , making calls preflop for the gamble, and these players will hit the board more often than not because the board can run anything from the flop to river, I really do not know how to explain my story, I play according to a strategy as does every poker player , so not to be rude, I will not reveal how I play etc and how I generate profits, sure I pay rake towards the site, but I do not play to work a bankroll, my trick is simple, have a floating bankroll, and withdrawal everytime you make between $150-200, this whole idea that pros have of having to build a bankroll from 250 to a 5000 , changing limits etc, thats just total BS, just make small profits, withdrawal every week, even if its $50 , its something, this is my greatest tool of making money online, it works like a cherry, once you make a bankroll like this, then you hop to other sites, and deposit large and clear 1st deposit bonuses, I hope this was helpful Peace

Title:Galvanise0 out of 3 readers found this review helpful
I just signed up to Pokerstars, I will let you know when I win the Sunday million, will let you know when I qualify for the world series , and then I will show you how I am going to win the World series of Poker, I have got the bug, I know the complaints, I know the hurt and pains of badbeats, but I don't care, because Im a man on a mission, I don't need anyone to wish me luck, I am just going to prove it to myself, rigged or not rigged, I am going to master this game, now give me some inspiration and dislike this so I feel more motivated to achieving my goal. Yee Yee Yee Yeeeeee
