word type: poker slang
- Having no money on PokerStars.
At one point in online poker history, PokerStars had the highest-stakes action and the biggest buy-in tournaments. Thus, it was the site most likely to eat up a bankroll. When someone would ask to borrow money on PokerStars, a typical response might have been, "Sorry, Brokerstars."
The term is somewhat antiquated now that players can lose their bankrolls more quickly and easily on Full Tilt Poker.
Shane "Shaniac" Schleger coined this term in 2006.
