Pokerstars has a very legit random number generator. Making flops more juicy to create bigger pots and thus more rake would be really stupid since they have a reputation to keep up. Big pokersites would never have a rigged deck.
The reason you are still losing could be because of two reasons.
You are just unlucky. Your sample size simply is not big enough. ...
The size of a pot-sized raise is calculated as follows:
Match the standing bet, and then
Raise by the size of the pot after you have matched the current bet.
The formula for calculating this is 3x current bet + dead money. Why does this formula work? Let's use actual numbers so we can see more clearly:
Example 1: SB posts 250, BB posts 500. You are UTG ...

There is no proof that Pokerstars algorythms are in any way "rigged". External auditory is performed on its dealing system.
Anyway you can ask for 15.000 extra chips every 4 hours so I don't think they're getting too much from players buying play money. The limit is probably set to prevent players from endlessly going all-in every hand
It depends what you enjoy more and/or what you are better at.
However, in my experience, the heads-up field is generally much tougher than 6-max, but rake is usually the same. Therefore I recommend 6-max tables. Besides, they require much less concentration and, depending on the stakes you are playing, you have to worry less about being exploitable.
I think you answered yourself at the first question, if it is legal. Yes, it is. Not only Pokerstars confirms it, but all other poker affiliates site say as well. And I don't think anybody would dare lying here.
If it's worth it, there is a whole other discussion. According to this link, there were 211 players at most, in the last 24 hours, 95 average on ...

PokerStars recently announced a deal with New Jersey to allow players from that state to play, though they'll be playing only against other NJ players and not from the global pool of PokerStars players. At least it's a start. A restart.
Officially PokerStars currently does not allow players from the U.S. At some point in the distant past, I remember seeing ...
It is powered by RNG (random number generator) and there never been any statistical anomalies over a long period of time, so you can be confident that they are not doing anything sketchy with it.
It is quite easy to notice these things for outside auditors, and scandal like that would put a huge blow to the whole company including their real money site, so ...
Same as any triple draw poker game (Badugi typically plays with a triple draw). Get hole cards, round of betting from under the gun. Draw, bet a second round. Draw than bet a third round. Draw then bet a fourth round. Same as hold-em. You can play it triple draw, single draw, limit or no limit. Badugi is just a four card draw game with a different way of ...
"PreFlop aggression : 60%"
If it is not a heads up (1 on 1) but 6 or more seats poker than it is too much. It is almost impossible on a long run play profitable with such preflop aggression. Especially playing as aggressive on a postflop streets.
It is not clear what do you mean by "win rate". Do you mean that you win 60% of hands where you put voluntary in ...
Point wise answer
Here is a beta for andriod HUD
I don't think HH is stored on the phone anymore. If you make an HUD it will have to determine actions literally by looking at the action
Pokerstars will point you to the list of allowed features in an HUD but not much more. once it is ready they will ask for a demo copy of the software to see it does not ...

From that frequency table, you can figure out your EV, based on the bankroll that you want to start with. That gives you the total number of tournaments that you can play and then the geometric distribution can give you the probability of getting a shot at the ...
