Is it just me or do others have problems with the server on Pokerstars. It seems that they are always getting disconnected. I have a very fast broadband connect and I really feel bad for the poor dial up people . I think they must be getting creamed, trying to log on after disconnects.

yea theres alot of disconnections there, probably because the amount of traffic on that site. Empire poker is even worse. it seems like everybody that dosnt have roadrunner internet takes forever to make a move. its a real pain especially when your playin in a tourney

Hi - I have dial-up and have never been disconnected at Poker Stars. I have heard that many broadband people get disconnected tho. Maybe dial-up ain't so bad!
P.S. You can also tell your connection percentage. Mine is usually around 99%.

re: Poker & Pokerstars
I can think of 3 times in the last year or so that I have been playing on PokerStars that I have been disconnected for a short amount of time. However, these disconnections were due to the set-up at my house being screwed up. I have been at tables where 7 people suddenly get disconnected for 2 minutes and me and one other guy just stole the blinds every hand, but that has been the only time I've seen a mass connection problem.

ive been playing on stars several months already and honestly cannot say that i have had any serious lag/disconnect problems. maybe a tiny lag/10-sec d/c once every week or so...but that's really it.
oh, and im on dialup.

I play a lot of SNGs at Poker Stars and the only time I ever had problems was when I had dialup. I now have Road Runner cable and it runs better than ever.
Just my $0.02 worth.
