Title:outrageous remarks0 out of 2 readers found this review helpful
After reading plenty of reviws with ref to Poker Stars/Full Til i think mosly the reviws are unfactual,insulting and just plain ignorant.

Firstly the wording regarding Jewish people is insulting, and other words which insults disabled people, or could do.

Also the comments of so called experiences, either in a game or few games, or a occasion of a problem regarding fund withdrawl is firstly insulting to the site and is non factual.
All poker sites have to check I/D of first withdrawl, because of strict laws that govern them.
I agree sometimes there are minor problems, and i know for sure both Poker Stars and Full Tilt are constantly making improvements.

I also know because they are at present becoming even more disabled friendly, they have both always been very disabled friendly, however they are doing even more to improve things.

All the comments regarding card fixing, cheating i refute as firstly it has no fact base and secondly it should be done heads on with the site in person.
Basically these blogs are just trying to damage the good site names because a few poker hands have been lost.
This is fact because otherwise why would certain people be insulting Disabled people and Jewish people otherwise.

Personally i want poker to expand, also get The American players back on board, none of this helps the cause.

It all seems about running the sites and people down with insults, and with no regard to honesty and peoples feelings.

I belive its better to consult the sites directly with problems and good and bad points, this way improvements can be made if needed.
This is not a fair and decent way, any sensible person knows the way forward is to post good decent topics, without insults to people and sites.

People just seem to follow on like sheep, agreeing with insults to people and sites. This is not the way forward and it offends people.

I know most of it is not meant and just sounding off, so can we please try hard and be nice and move poker forward in a positive way. Otherwise our American friend may never return.

I think deal with the sites head on with any problems, as this is fair, and also respect others and countries.

I also think ganging up on Chris Ferguson and Howard Lederer is wrong, i very much doubt they did anything wrong, just victims of other peoples mistakes.

Good luck at the tables, take care.

Title:PokerStars Review0 out of 3 readers found this review helpful
If you enjoy multi-tabling with easy but sufficient graphics, PokerStars is the best out there. They have a wide variety of games at all stakes.
The only things bad I can say about PS is that they have far to many players; the tournament late reg. time is far to much and so is the max number of players. Its hard to finish in the money because of the amount of the field of players and most of the special tournaments (where the big cashes are) have 120min late reg., so you can expect to be playing for at least 2 hours before the field starts reducing.
These are the only things I don't like about PS.
Overall, its the best poker site out there still.

Title:no rigg0 out of 3 readers found this review helpful
Im very interested to hear how the brilliant rigg works.....there are round 100k players at the site that it needs to consider just in cashgames.......many more counting in mtts and sitngoes....some are winners, some losing, others just cashed out, it must be very complicated to be able to screw all categories of their to explain big winners over long time??

pokerscout should clean up the rewiews, right now there are only badbeat stories here and people screaming "rigg" after losing with ak vs a6 twicw in a night.

Title:still delusional tho :D0 out of 9 readers found this review helpful
if a major site like pokerstars (or any other major site/network) was rigged in the way many of the frustrated losing players describe, it would be very easy to prove.

yet, as of now, nobody of you morons who cant play cards has done so. its not hard if you know 3rd grade math guys so just prove it FFS.

how do people win at these sites? there are people who live off online poker. they live off ur money, because u cant compete. thats it, simple as that.

i play both online and live and have seen brutal beats and runouts in the real as well as the digital world. thats the nature of the game, thats why u fish can win occasionally :).

i have tracked a huge number of hands and there is nothing wrong with the RNG at stars/ongame/party/pacific (thats where i play, i assume other sites have a normal RNG too tho).

the rigtards bitching about being cheated blabla - guess what its not easy to beat most online game anymore. u guys arent good enough.

take some probability classes and maybe psychology too. u will understand things like standard deviation, 1%ers happening some times etc. as well as the mental aspect, the perception of their occurance.

Title:losing players crying0 out of 5 readers found this review helpful
u guys are freakin delusional, 100s of claims from losing fish, stating that stars is rigged yet none of u dolts can give any proof based on decent sample size.

rng rig etc. is so easy to prove even my 12yr old brother could do it. are u guys all braindead when it comes to math/statistics or why arent u proving this "scam".

ive been playing on stars for years and i have won a lot of money on there. the "houseplayers" who "always win" are the sharks gunnin for your money. yep suck it up, U ARE THE FISH.

btw i win more on euro sited because fish are more widespread and less regulars are hustlin u math donks who cant compete.

Stars are by far the best site iv ever played on, good software, brilliant support and good trafic. The only problem i see is that the tournaments have so big fields it takes forver to play them and that stars in my opinion have the best players. It feels like evreyone who takes poker seriously plays there and that makes games hard.

U guys that says owners are wanted i usa u even know why???? look into that laughing my head off here when i see those comments since they are coming from people that use the "criminal activity" themselves.....

And btw, its not rigged, learn about variance and play better.

Title:Needs Improvement1 out of 21 readers found this review helpful
PokerStars is the most efficient place to play poker for real money. It has a variety of deposit options, and quick withdrawl options as well. Smooth graphics and real easy to multitable.

The problem is they don't have bet-slider options so you almost always are forced to use the keyboard to make your bets. A person like me who likes to just chill out, lay back and slouch on my chair using the mouse 99.9% of the time has to sit up and use the keyboard hahaha. So you can imagine it's kinda hard to play at PokerStars with a laptop.

That's where FullTilt is better than PokerStars, you can play alot more casually and comfortably at FullTilt because they have a few bet-slider options and you can increase or decrease the incriments as you move the arrow on the slider to place your bet. Really, really, really helpful.

But PokerStars beats FullTilt on smoother graphics, less lag time when loading, better multi-tabling stability, and quicker/easier cashouts.

Overall, I would say PokerStars is Best, but always room for improvement.
