Stars has recently claimed the title of biggest online poker room. Stars have a sizeable player base, including a lot of fish who are still being attracted by Daniel Negreanu and Chris Moneymaker (the guy who played a PokerStars super-satellite, then won the online qualifier, then went to the big show and won it all).

Poker Stars have one of the better software packages of all internet poker sites. The tables look good, and the action buttons are huge. The software has proven more stable for me than any of the other sites and allowing personal avatars is a nice touch.

Poker Stars is rightly famous for its tournaments. They have the best selection of events, the most generous starting chips, and slowest blinds increase of all the sites. This means that the games are more about skill, and less about luck.

Poker Stars cashouts are very quick; most are between 6-12 hours. Support is also quick (I've had emails answered as quickly as 15 minutes before) and knows what they are doing - responses actually answer your questions and are written in English.

Finally, Poker Stars offer much smaller-limit ring games than most other sites, which makes it a great place to start - you can deposit $50 and play in the small games until you've built up a bit of experience and bankroll.

Deposit Bonus Information:   (Updated: 06/09/2016)
Poker Stars bonuses clear at about $8 an hour for a $1-2 player (you can try clearing them at the microlimit tables, but below 50c/$1, it's much slower). It's worth having an account prepared to recieve the bonus (plus this is *the* place to qualify for big real world tournaments).
