As many of us already know, about a month ago, a Pokerstars
Update intentionally broke the application for USA & USA territories use. (pretty shitty trick since we couldn't play anything but play chips anyhow.) I wrote an e-mail to p-stars support concerning the issue and the continual re-direct to the .NET download. I finally got a very non-responsive reply around 72hrs later stating blah, blah, wonk, wonk, crappity crap. Sorry for the .... try our .NET, no feature software instead if you wish to still play. I was far from amused by this reply. My experience with most of the players from the .NET world of P-stars is dealing with the maniac, push-n-pray, coinflip cowboys. Sorry, but Prefer playing poker. I decided to look for a working solution to restore access to the P-stars.COM version with all of the features we've come to enjoy. I had a "Eureaka" moment and thought, what is the first application luanched when you start up Pokerstars ? It's the P-stars update application. ;) A few search terms later and I found what i was looking for. Direct download from the P-stars updater site itself.
Here's what you do to Restore a fully functional Pokerstars.com.
(a) Sh-h-h-h. don't tell P-stars, or it's back to Jokerstars.NET for all of us.
1. Uninstall the total piece of sh*t, .NET version.
2. Download and run http://update.pokerstars.com/pokerstarsinstall.exe
3. Launch and update will restore you to the full functioning .COM version
Enjoy it while this fix lasts. I know I do.
