Wine/Pokerstars on PS3

I just finished installing YDL6.1 on my PS3. I am now trying to install wine so that I can run from my PS3. I have read a little about it off the internet and have tried what I have read, but have gotten no where...Is anyone familiar with this setup which I am trying to achieve? Any help would be appreciated.

WINE isn't an emulator, it is just a Windows compatibility layer for Linux. It can't run Windows programs on anything other than an x86 processor, which the PS3 certainly is not. WINE will never be able to run any Windows programs on a PS3.

You need to first emulate x86 with QEMU, and install Windows into that. Then you could install and run whatever software you wanted through the virtual Windows installation.
