OK, well, I got this spam on FB, like learning another language and it was an app for Stars.
I imagine it is for tablets
and phones, but when I clicked it, it opened a stars.net window and found out who I am via a short questionnaire which I mistakenly answered correctly.
Once connected, I find that even tho my million play chips show up, I am only at level 1 and can only play ring games.....not my forte at all. No clue how to move up levels, it might be really simple, but I saw no icon to click for info. Sng's and MTT's and Zoom, look to be available, but one has to move up levels.
It apparently can only handle one table and there is no obvious way to close a table once it is opened for whatever reason I wanted to close it. In my case the table filled, and all I was offered was the waiting list, or find another table. I chose find another table but it red boxed me that I had maxed out on open tables. Maxed at 1 BTW, and it was the table I wanted to leave so I could find another one.
None of this moved smoothly, The middleman comment was largely due to the Facebook window that stars is running in.
The process for Zynga Poker at Facebook is smoother. I don't play Zynga, so don't pigeonhole me.
It may work well as a phone app, I don't do things via phone, so someone else can fill in that info. If I want to play play money poker at stars, I will do it at stars. Not via a 3rd party app, even if the 3rd party is stars.
