I don't think it means anything, its just a new fancy symbol as far as I can tell

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.

Thanks. Pretty sure I had (I guess have) an account with Pokerstars - I'll have to check.

Do they have an Iphone app that you can play real money on?

Jumped on last night, had some cash in the account still. Played a $33 20k guaranteed and cashed. But man I am rusty.

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?

yeh these kind of threats have been around for ages but it seems they've taken a big step this week to becoming a reality
