do you think they will have enough to attract customers? last time i looked at the pokerstars stream on twitch they seemed desperate pairing up two meh players (spraggy and whatshisface) to double team because .. well, by themselves they arent up to par to lead the stream i guess.

but all the long time pros are moving out, i doubt D-neg stays around much.. he's obviously more invested in hockey than poker right now, anyways. and then whos left. team run it up? Kmart? lol.

if the pro's are moving away, how long before the rest of us follow? do you think it will effect their bottomline? is it the beginning of the end for the corrupt poker giant?... one can only hope :)

Who cares about who is in their team.

Daniel 2 hours ago on Twitter: "I’m playing a FULL WSOP schedule." Plus, he just won $3m like a day ago in live Poker..

There's nowhere better to go. Pokerstars offers a great client.

No. Regardless of any of Pokerstars' history I consider them very trustworthy as a poker player on their site. Do you want to give your personal details to these dodgy AF sites popping up?

don't you worry about PS cause they are not worried at all. They are by far the largest poker site. And there are so many players who would literally sell their souls to be sponsored by PS.

Never once was there any consideration to who played at a poker site as any factor to where I would play. Bottom line will be affected on policy they decide. Risk to reward on what they are willing to give back. People will leave once they have incentives or perks taken away.

Good Pro players come and go all the time. If they are playing high level they have a sponsor, if not for some time the sponsor live them. poker stars is the top site and will be around for a long time I guess...
In my Country brazil I hope the casinos open again, it will be great. New jobs, more tourism and a lot of good things with it.

Like other posts here I could care less with which poker pro plays on PS.
PS is still one of if not the largest online poker sites out there, and as such the traffic is still a valued quality that players look for.

I don't think it will scare people away from pokerstars; but it will reduce the inflow of new players. Becourse they look at the pro's and see what advertising they wear, and if it is another site, they probebly will check that site first.

stars online pro's are great imo. nothing wrong with spraggy or easywithaces and kmart or lex. They promote the product and do a good job. The players that play for a living have or will be moving away from stars to other platforms as stars rack and lack of rakeback makes the games hard to beat imo.

When poker finally becomes regulated in the US, poker stars will flourish more than any other site.
Just give it time.

Stars is going to run itself into tha ground one day, just waiting for a new site to come along and smash it like stars used too.

I personally don't see stars going down anytime soon. They are by far the biggest online poker site and i do not see anything much better on the horizon that threatens their position.

If you are going to play online poker stick to the big three Stars Party and 888. The new site is Breakout Poker with their own useless crypto junk currency that don't pay out. Stay away from small new sites.:cool:
