Which Games to Play

No-limit Texas Hold’em is played in $2 through $5,000 margins and from time to time at higher limits. In $1,000 no-limit games and under, there’s always a great choice of active tables. Tables have two standard sizes: the six player and the nine player tables. One of the remarkable features of Poker Stars is the highly professional level of its average players. In other poker rooms, the game play is not as skilled. Not that you will find this to be true every time you play, but it does make Poker Stars a great place for practicing poker skills.

You will find a highly intense game of Omaha here as well. At any time of the day you can find some active tables of pot-limit Omaha with $2 to $5,000 limits. Few poker rooms can feature such a wide variety even in Texas Hold’em.

Depending on the amount of FFPs gathered during the month, players get various VIP status such as the SilverStar. This VIP status is assigned when players reach 1,500 points, which is generally not a problem to collect for a player who plays several low limit games ($50 no-limit or even $20 no-limit games) daily to collect. Higher VIP status is the GoldenStar and the PlatinumStar, which are assigned for every 4,000 and 10,000 points respectively. The next VIP status are Supernova and Supernova Elite, which are assigned once a year for over 100,000 FPPs. There are various VIP FreeRolls available for VIP players.

Another good thing about the VIP players is that they collect more bonus points faster than others. SilverStars get 50% more FPPs and GoldenStars get 100% more FPPs, while PlatinumStars get FPPs 150% faster. VIP players also have a variety of other tempting privileges. This kind of bonus system makes Poker Stars the sweetest place for regular visitors and encourages a more dynamic game.

There is also another function for the Poker Stars bonus points. You can use them for shopping at the local store and to buy places at multiple tournaments, including the largest land based events.

Interface

Poker Stars’ client program should satisfy the most selective of players. It is easy to navigate, great game filters with tons of options and a simple, convenient way to search for favorable tables and tournaments.  Poker tables support photo-avatars, so players can introduce themselves to the community in a unique way. Employing nice sound and an adjustable table size (both shrinking and enlarging) make the game easy and comfortable. The only drawback we can think of is the lack of proper description for the size of the bet. Otherwise, the client program is stable and fast.
