Changing your Stars ID is not possible

We cannot approve a change to your Stars ID.

An important part of poker is knowing an opponent: the more you play against someone, the better you know their style of play, and thus how to react to it.

If someone changes their Stars ID, the other players will think it is someone new, but that person still knows them, thus gaining an experience advantage at the tables.

This policy protects everyone, including you. It would not be fair if one of your opponents, who knows your play very well, changed their Stars ID, and hid behind a new identity, using their experience of your play to beat you.
