Online poker is legal in Denmark although player rewards are offset slightly lower by some rooms e.g. PokerStars to compensate for state taxes.

Yes! As shown in the table above Danish players are not segregated from the rest of the international PokerStars playerpool (in the way e.g. France, Italy and Spain are).
The domain name is PokerStars.dk but the game experience is identical to the dot.com client, same players, stakes, deposit bonus, Supernova VIP program etc. Plan your yearly VPP goals with Rakeback.com's exclusive PokerStars Rakeback Calculator.
No. There is currently no internet censorship applied to online gambling sites in Denmark, whether lottery, sports betting, casino or poker related. As such a VPN is not necessary. However if you experience difficulties downloading poker clients in the future or while travelling outside Denmark, follow the guidelines below:
Other countries in Europe's regulated online poker market may censor primary domains of poker rooms. While the poker site's domain may be down, preventing new players from downloading the client, those who have already downloaded the software can still log in and play unrestricted. The sites are based offshore (e.g. Malta / Gibraltar) with EU licenses - balances and cashouts remain safe despite one country's internet censorship.
If you are unable to download a poker client simply use a cheap VPN service such as StrongVPN or HideMyAss to do so. After install it is no longer necessary to use a VPN although some grinders continue to do so if playing over public wifi, for extra security. Site reps have confirmed on the forums that VPNs are not prohibited, with the exception of VPN use to play online from the US.
PokerStars obtained the assets of Full Tilt Poker as part of its agreement with the US Department of Justice and re-opened the online room for real money play in some regulated EU countries on Nov 6th, 2012.
Unfortunately PokerStars has stated that they currently have no plans to seek licenses to operate Full Tilt Poker (FTP) in Denmark, France, Italy, Spain, Belgium or Estonia. Full Tilt no longer offers flat rakeback and has 1/10th the traffic of PokerStars.
