PokerStars has just broken the 20,000,000 player mark. This is quite a feat, considering that just 3 years ago they were celebrating the 5,000,000 milestone. The lucky member “piposko” signed up on Feb. 21st, and was given a $215 tournament ticket just for joining and being their 20 millionth player! How’s that for class? You have to love PokerStars!

On the heels of this announcement, PokerStars‘ 8-game tables made their jump into the high stakes field. Now, players can play up to $400/$800 limit, and often against well recognized pros such as Barry Greenstein, Daniel Negreanu and Gavin Griffin. These 8 game tables are a rotation of Hold’em, Omaha H/L, Razz, Stud, Stud H/L, NL Hold’em, Pot Limit Omaha, and 2-7 Triple Draw. If you’re not a high roller, don’t fret. You can still play at the 8 game tables for as little as .20/.40 stakes. I think these tables are great, as it does get kinda boring sometime being limited to one game. These tables can be found in the lobby; Click on ‘other games’ > ‘mixed games’ > 8 game’.
