After years of denying requests to make heads-up cash games for their players, PokerStars finally gave in and implemented 1-on-1 heads-up tables.
The addition of these tables can be attributed to the TwoPlusTwo heads-up poker forum. On August 2nd at 4am a member suggested that they all email PokerStars support to request heads-up tables. No more then 12 hours later, the heads-up cash game tables were available all throughout PokerStars.
The best part about the new heads-up tables on PokerStars is that they only charge a maximum of $.50 cents for rake. If you play heads up on any other PokerStars tables, they’re going to rake up to $1 per hand. Players receive 1VPP per hand if the rake reaches 40 cents, which works out to 28% RakeBack for SuperNovas, when spending your frequent players points in the VIP FPP store.
