    Unfortunately, it is full of malicious spyware such as ........tygame and waste of time.

    Sorry, I just hate those types of games and they are one of the most boring games out there in my opinion.

    Thanks for your response but I'm a little confused.

    He's saying the only thing bad about pokerstars is that you are stuck playing a boring game thats a waste of time.

    To answer your question I haven't heard of any spyware with Pokerstars. Why not just run a spyware program and see for yourself?

    Well it took me about 4 days to clear out the spyware last time I did that. It even respawned itself after having Ad-Aware, Spybot S & D, and MS AntiSpyware all on and supposedly cleared them.

    Anyway, I'm not too fond of Poker really. I've usually given it some negative feedback. But I just thought I'd try it. Thanks again.

    Have you used many other programs, bassy? I'm going to Vegas soon and need to start playing again, since I've barely played at all in the last 9 months or so.

    only the UltimateBet cardroom Cheez. i quite like the pokerstars layout though (and i'm jealous that you're off to vegas - you should give David Sklansky's The Theory of Poker a read before you go)

    I was thinking of picking that up. I've got this, but I haven't read it in quite awhile. Sklansky's book is a little steep, but I suppose if I win a couple pots because of it it's already paid for itself.

    I'm actually going there to perform a wedding - the gambling's just incidental.

    edit: It appears I may not be performing the wedding, but I'm still going to Vegas
