So what's the consensus view on the best site for online poker these days?

I used to play but two kids have kept me away from it for a couple of years. They're older and I'm looking to get back into it.

Sorry if OT. Just tried to deposit some money after updating pokerstars and it keeps saying "wrong zip/postal code format". Any ideas what I can do? Haven't had any issues previopusly.

Have you emailed support through the client?

They get back to you pretty quick on that

Deleted the previous post.

If you are looking for staking options, you can try alternatives such as the two plus two marketplace, but I don't like your chances with zero-few posts and no other information such as previous experience etc....

Also, I have been a mod for a about 5 years and I think thats the first post I ever deleted lol

Jason Somerville will be streaming with Jason Mercier (who is playing) the 102K WCOOP High Roller with face cards up on a 15 min delay

That is going to be one hell of a show, to see into the world of Mercier and his thought process playing the biggest online tourney ever (for buy in)

Anyone going to watch?

Looks as if the biggest threat to pokerstars in Australia is here

http://calvinayre.com/2016/04/28/business/australia-online-gambling-stance-trouble-pokerstars/

I dont have the quote, but apparently the Amaya CEO has flagged the possibility of being forced out of Australia with this new legislation
How long ago did the CEO flag this (and isn't he gone anyway?)

And haven't they been saying for agggeesssss that there is a chance they will eventually pull out?

Any idea if 888 will go the same way? That would just about be it for my 5c/10c games - good while it lasted
