      Hello fireboltops,

      Welcome to PokerStrategy and the Forums,

      Im not actually 100% what would cause this problem. I think you should check this link--> http://www.pokerstrategy.com/quiz/platform/ . If that doesnt work then please contact support via the ticket system and explain the problem to them.

      Best Regards,

      -Jack

      Pretty sure main reason pokerstars isn't offered as a choice is because it is REALLY hard to clear the starting capital playing micro limit poker. This is because the rake in any given hand seldom reaches enough to generate strategy points.

      I'd recommend starting with an iPoker site (Bet365 is as good as any) as clearing the additional $100 is much easier here than at PokerStars. At micro limits this additional starting capital is a pretty welcome addition to your bank roll.

      As long as you have never previously held a PokerStars account you can switch to it later when you start playing some decent limit poker - and therefore are more able to clear bonuses etc.

      Having said all this.. if you are also depositing some money because you've played previously then you could start at PokerStars.. if not, then don't go near it untill you have a decent bank roll and are playing reasonable limits.

      Trust this helps. :f_grin:
