Title:Word to the wise8 out of 9 readers found this review helpful
 
This applies to every poker site online, stay away from REBUY tournaments and REBUY sng's, anything whereby you see a REBUY tourney or 1R or even an addon , just stay the F away from it, its the most handicapped thing to evenly distrubute prices and places, the only time you will see a true deal in online poker is in a "Freezeout" tourney, I know all these facts are true, you will notice your Big house Poker celeb players play only "Freezeouts", because even they know that the deal is their to bring up the pools, push the weaker players into big tourneys, and then getting taken out by better players in the later stages of the tourney. You don't see Joe Cada and those chaps playing Rebuy tourneys. Why? Not because they see past the "No value mark" but because its the fruity c---tail of the sites money scheme. Take my word for it, and if ya don't believe me, watch 6 Rebuy tourneys at once accross 24 tables, and watch it for yourself, it looks more like highlights than a live tournament, stick to freezeouts everyone if you know whats better for your bankroll.

Frenchies have to pay by far the highest rake (+tax) in the online poker world. For serious grinders and for any person with a brain all french sites are a no go.

Title:Rake and tax kills86 out of 89 readers found this review helpful
 
I was a small winner at NL 100 at a com pokersite and had a very good RB deal. Cause I played some decent volume I was able to cash out about 3 k every month.

Even the players at Stars.fr are weak and due to a incredible number of suck outs I'm losing money now. Paying nearly double the normal rake is just horrible.

Due to the vip system at Stars where you have to put in a lot of hands, combined with a longer bad run and the high rake, it's just not worth to play there.

Software is good, customers service too, but I'm not playing poker to make Stars and the french gov rich, so I just stopped playing there.

If you complain about the high rake at "normal", com sites play some hands at the french sites. lol lol lol

Not the way to treat players Stars and Sarko, hope u both will fail in the future.

Title:pointless playing stars.fr90 out of 93 readers found this review helpful
 
Most of the players are in the micros and small stakes.

Rake and tax will kill most of them, even if they are small winning players. If you look at poker like a hobby and you dont care about loosing your roll even as a winner go for stars.fr

If you dont want to be milked like a stupid cow stay away.

Title:stupid french politicians29 out of 31 readers found this review helpful
 
High rake in euros, tax for every pot and now they will even tax the players winnings in addition. Why are they so greedy and taking away any fun. People just wanna play a bit of poker and dont want to be robbed.
Austria has a gov runned site with 2.5% rake and everyone is happy.

But hey, vive la France, la grande nation.

Title:the pond will dry out71 out of 74 readers found this review helpful
 
I'm pretty sure french online poker will die on its own.

The game requires weaker players for the stronger players to survive. The high rake and the tax will kill weaklings very fast. I'm sure the sites will not find enough new players to deposit again and again, so a natural healthy cycle is not given.

It's like killing off the bottom of the food chain and watching the predators at the top go extinct.

Same for every french site, not only Stars.

Title:Terrible place to play!!!!!!!!70 out of 73 readers found this review helpful
 
This is one of the worsts sites to play. The rake is huge and unheard in the business - 7.5% up to 1.5euro for HU play, 2.5 for 3-4 players and 3 for 5-9.
The only games that can be played profitably are the highest limits and they don't exist there.
This site makes money for the french goverment who rapes his own people. They made a law to forbid the french to play anywhere else and are rake-raping them now.
Plese don't play at this site - boycot the greedy french government.
