File a bug report.  Include screen shot as an attachment.  I don't think
there are any bug reports for this program.

If you can include all terminal output, including any that exists from
the program's installation package.  Please do an installation in a
fresh user space Wine directory ($HOME/.wine).  If you have many
programs installed under Wine, it is possible to do this by using the
WINEPREFIX system environment variable. 

Run in terminal:
export WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.winepokerstars
wine notepad (this does some setup for Wine).

Run the installation program from the installation CD/DVD:

cd /media/cdrom (or the location where the CD mounted to)
wine PokerStarsInstall.exe

cd to $HOME/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/<directory where pokerstars
installed to>
wine pokerstars

Post all terminal output as an attachment to the issue.
