So Pokerstars wants to look like the good guys with donations by requesting their customers to donate...

I have an idea since they suck so much money out of us and give it to the Russians.....

12 hours one day take all the rake the site earns and give it to Nepal...

The customers still in a way donate and Pokerstars still looks good....instead of us doing it all and them taking the credit!

Tell me where you saw that pokerstars made a donation to Russia. If you mean that russians are winning very often onthe site ten its somethink very different. Russia population is 143 millions and you probably be surprised with yhe numbers of poker players. Yes some are making money and a lot of them are losing like any other country.

For every 1$ donated by the players - PokerStars will donate 2$.

I think it is very nice of them, and all of us could give at least a dollar of two - we sure can skip one tourney and donate the money instead Smile

when there is a disaster like this, pokerstars always gets players to donate, and with the amount of russians playing on their site, they are prob getting more donations then any other country.

And the only way they suck money out of a player, is if the player sucks.

And in that case, as usual they are a sore loser , complaining the poker site ripes them off.

many Thumbs Down Thumbs Down Thumbs Down Thumbs Down Thumbs Down to this thread

It is always a dilemma when a billion dollar organisation asks for charity donations from people who could themselves be in poor areas of the world,also I once read about big companies using these schemes as a tax reduction ploy.
Are they going to match all donations themselves?Are they sending you straight to the charity to donate or will the money be donated in the Amaya or Pokerstars brand?It could just be a decent thing to do but unfortunately the cynic in me says to just go to the proper site and give money as if you are in the UK the charity will get tax relief and it will be matched by the UK government.
