PS Women Suggests PokerStars PLAY

It's no secret that most poker players prefer PokerStars over any other online poker site on the planet. The downloading process is easy, and there are more perks to playing on PokerStars than we can list here.

But what about those players who want to compete without downloading a program? There are poker fans who simply want to jump online and play some hands while browsing their favorite online news and social media sites. The answer is simple: PokerStars PLAY.

Anyone can access it via Facebook through this link or by typing in any web browser. It's the most exciting new app available, and though it's still in beta mode, there are already more than 188,000 players signed up!

The latest deals and promotions are listed there, and clicking the "Play Now" link takes you directly to the site, with no download or delay.

The home page shows Daniel Negreanu alongside sports legends Ronaldo and Rafa Nadal, all of whom regularly play on the site and advocate it as a great way to get acquainted with or practice the game of poker.

The welcome message from Team PokerStars Pro and PS Women advocate Liv Boeree introduces you to the games and gets you started. And you'll receive 10,000 chips play-money chips just to get started.
