PokerStars was founded back in 2001 and was from the beginning a huge success, but not the largest poker room. The largest poker room at that time was PartyPoker. But when the "Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act" was introduced in 2006, PartyPoker lost all their American poker players and instead PokerStars took over as the world's largest poker site as they still accepted American residents. On December 30th 2007, PokerStars entered the Guinness World Record books for having the most players simultaneously playing online (151,758) and today PokerStars has over 20 million customers, the biggest guarantee tournaments and approximately 24,000 active cash game players around the clock, all year round.

I prefer play on smaller rooms where you can still have chances to win a tournament

| Probably the best poker software, but also many good poker players. At smaller rooms players are usually weaker ))|
| laama||11/03/2009 16:46:14 GMT|
| I wonder how many players have come through BRM?|
| zsiz88||12/03/2009 10:18:20 GMT|
| i dont like pokerstars... i think partypoker the best|
| TMM_HH||12/03/2009 12:46:44 GMT|
| is there some information available how many total members other rooms like fulltilt or the different networks have?|
| GeneYuss||13/03/2009 02:21:28 GMT|
| 20 Million people is equivalent to everyone from New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles having an account on PokerStars. That is 1 in every 338 people in the world having a Pokerstars account according to The U.S. Census Bureau's World Population Estimate of 6,766,151,869. Now, I'm pretty sure many players have duplicate accounts and many are play money accounts too. |
TMM_HH, I would like to know that too. I searched but couldn't find any info. Not even on Pokerscout.
| rowdylad||13/03/2009 06:44:00 GMT|

| alwaysafish||13/03/2009 15:32:16 GMT|

| Hmmm that much customers. They must have also much employees.|
I just saw one car here in Helsinki, which had PokerStars sticky tape over it.
I wonder if they have offices located in here too?

Still 200.000 players. Should be enough to find a game.
| Cranberry||16/03/2009 08:37:13 GMT|
| That's a whopping number but I have to agree with the inactive thing...|
| ChoonT||16/03/2009 09:14:39 GMT|
| most of them are playing with playmoney... at ebay tehre is active trading of clever pokerplayers collecting easyplaymoney and give it overpriced to new pokerstars-players....|
ok i did this too... i bought 1million playmoney in my poker-beginning to check out bigstack strategy but if they play crap at realmoney how should they play at playmoney
i sat down at a pm-table with 2 other workcolleagues after nightshift and playing bigstack as hell but it was funny

| Flangel||06/04/2009 12:41:37 GMT|
| Thats because yet another smaller room was forced to to let POkerstars over control and all the players of the room were transferred to Pokerstars. I think It was bugsy Club|
| massit-tanne||06/04/2009 13:27:44 GMT|
| yes yes thats right... 20 million is lot players. Pokerstars is the best because so many players, uou can allways find the games you want to play... !|
