Poker Stars is the largest and most popular online poker room for a reason. They are known for having the largest and most varied tournaments (e.g. Sunday $1.5 Million, rebuys). They spread a wide variety and tables at almost any limit or game. They are well known for great customer service. While they don't offer rakeback, they make up for it by having the best player points system and store to spend them in.
