Top left of avatar at the table?
One in the top middle means the player is on .net.
Don't think I've seen the top left though. Didn't play since Saturday.

I believe for some themes, such as the new nova ones, the "dot net" star has been moved from the top to the left side. I'm also finding it the fastest way to locate the American players. Strangely enough, I'm still operating through the "dot com" link. Been hearing rumors that PokerStars is hunting down those of us who haven't switched and are shifting us over to that site.

You sure about that?
I see quite a few of them in money tourneys... or at least in freerolls for money, not too sure, I thought you couldn't play for real money at all on the .net

Also I use to get them sometimes for no apparent reason, probably just in play money tourney yes, but I never used the .net.

Generally yes, a white single star in the middle top of the avatar means this. However, it has been questioned to glitch once in a while for a long time.
The explanation of the new theme may be the answer to the question. I don't use one.

The glitch star.
I actually called it that a while ago, as it puzzled me in its randomness, I was asking around (in chat) and getting no explanation.

So I'm getting curious again here, as present explanations don't quite solve the mystery.
And I'm not one to leave a mystery unsolved... actually that's not quite true, if I weren't I'd be totally insane by now (as opposed to only partially insane), but still, even if the explanation is just the glitch star, I'm still curious, I get this silly Sherlock itch you know, if anyone got some more clues, this isn't bad for a mystery thread.

You CAN play in the freerolls for money on the .net version.

You just CANNOT join REAL MONEY games, with a buy in, on the .net.

I started with the .net version, and started my Bankroll with the freerolls, then switched to the .com client so that I could access the REAL MONEY games.

Americans CANNOT play for money on either of the versions, whether it be freeroll or not, at the moment.
