Note: If you decide to play a game of High Stakes Pool on the Pogo site, the best idea is to use an email address which is not your everyday email address. The issue here is that Pogo do tend to send out a lot of game related emails pushing the player into new games on the site. This can become a bit annoying when you only signed up to play online pool at the site and not to be hassled about other games they have on their site.
Good luck for your next game!
