PokerStars banned in Russia


Well, that was unexpected. Part of poker players from Russia will be unable to play at PokerStars from today.

Access is currently permitted only for clients of Beeline - the largest internet provider in Russia. Their decission is supported by the law because from 2009 online gambling is in Russia illegal. As far as we know, this is the only provider that blocked access to PokerStars online poker network but be aware because after that move, there can be more.
