Pokerstars launched in September 2001 and quickly became the largest poker network in the industry. During its peak hours, it hosts games for a bigger total player base than all other sites combined. Players can find the biggest tournament guarantees as well as cash games of all stakes at all hours of the week. The VIP program at Pokerstars took a hit in 2016 which decreased the total possible rewards for all player sizes, but together with the big $600 deposit bonus, the total rewards are still competitive enough for Pokerstars to be a great addition to all players game schedule.
