PokerStars -The Players Choice

Share this
PokerStars has long been one of the most popular poker sites on the internet. The fact that it is one of the few poker rooms still open to Americans is just one of the reasons the player traffic is so huge. Another reason is Features. PokerStars has always been the leader when it comes to innovative features to enhance the online poker playing experience.

One of the most unique features PokerStars offers is the choice of table/room themes. Want to play on the beach? Now you can with the Marine theme. Like the look of an old west saloon? Then you may want to try the Saloon theme. You can even play among the stars in the galaxy with the unique Stars theme. In all, there are 11 themes besides the original default theme.

Another option that applies to all the tables is the choice of no images, for those that don’t want to look at player’s avatars. You can even make the table look just like home, with the custom background option. After you have your table looking the way you want it, you can choose from six different deck colors of red, purple, blue, green, gold and brown. And, don’t forget to add your own avatar, whether it is of you or one of your favorite people, animal, objects, or places to be!

Have you ever overlooked your hand because you thought a heart was a diamond? If so, you may want to try out the four color deck feature. Once you try it, you will be amazed at how nice it is to see blue diamonds, red hearts, green clubs and black spades.

How many times have you thrown your hand away and then forgot what you had? All you have to do is put your mouse over your seat position and your discarded hand shows in a grayed out format.

While you’re playing in any game, you can check your stats to see how you are playing and your % of wins at showdown, wins without a showdown, etc. If you’re playing in a tournament, just click on the info tab and it will tell you what your position is in the tournament, how many players are left, and it may help you make a very important decision when you’re close to the bubble.

While PokerStars doesn’t yet have a “change seat” option, they do have the Sit Here feature. If you have a favorite seat position, like in the middle of the table, you can sit in your preferred seat in any game you play. Your position does not change, just your view of the table.

The unique features and options on PokerStars don’t stop with the table scenery. You can also take notes on players, transfer funds, request tournament history and hand history, cash out history, buy-in history, mute all chat and see what tournaments you are registered in.

Have a friend that plays on PokerStars? Use the “find a player” feature. After you enter the players name just once, their name will stay on your list. The next time you want to find your buddy, click on their name and PokerStars will tell you where they are. You can then join them in their game, or just observe them and chat.

For players who prefer to play multiple tables at once, the multi-table feature is very handy. When it is your turn to act on one of the tables, that table will pop up, letting you know it is your turn. You can resize the tables also, or set them to adjust side by side for easier viewing.

When you play in real money games, PokerStars rewards you with Frequent Player Points (FPP’s). These FPP’s can be used to buy into real money tournaments or you can spend them in the FPP store. There are almost 100 items to choose from in the store, ranging from teddy bears and books to leather jackets and casino quality chip sets. Not only can you get some very cool stuff by shopping with your FPP’s but the shipping is free!

PokerStars is not just a hit with Americans, but with the additional language options of French, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Polish, Norwegian, Hungarian, Finnish, Danish and Swedish, PokerStars is the global favorite poker spot as well.

At PokerStars you will always find poker games at any limit you desire, experience the best poker software, and unique player features. Whether you want to play for free or win real money, you can do it by downloading PokerStars. Use the special PokerWorks bonus code First2007 and get a 100% deposit bonus, up to $50 AND $25 FREE!
