PokerStars Software

The PokerStars software is among the best available and is a dream if you enjoy multi-tabling because you can play up to 24 cash-tables and an unlimited amount of tournament/SNG tables at any one time with the option to tile or cascade them. The graphics are crisp and each player can upload their very own avatar and customize their table and backgrounds. One of the best features is their hand replayer which lets you quickly view previous hands without having to leave your table to search hand histories. In 2007 they launched a Mac-compatible version of their software to allow Mac users to download the softare directly, and they are constantly updating the software to further improve it and stay a step ahead of all other sites.
