I live in the U.S and I cannot register for any of the open league games. I get a message stating that people inmy area cannot play. I thought these were freerolls so what gives? Can anyone provide any info? Thanks.

You cant play freerolls either,you can play "play money" but nothing that involves a money transfer for the time being. Americans have been locked out since Black Friday.

Google that Black Friday and poker to get a idea of whats in play here.
As for PSO it has a monthly prize so your not allowed to play it for that reason.

What cookies said pakrh8r and welcome to the forum.

Don't fret though,even though we can't even play in freerolls here and grind up a BR with absolutely NO MONETARY RISK to ourselves our illustrious government douche bags are still perfectly fine with us bailing out the Wall Street casinos the next time THEY crap out.

So we may not be playing but we're gambling baby.

U.S. players are not allowed to take part in ANY games involving real money at all on the Poker Stars Client.

As the PSO open league involves competition for real money prizes, this means U.S. players are not allowed to play even though they need not pay any entry fees.

All of those in the U.S. who enjoy playing Poker on line anxiously await the time when our country once again allows us to do with our money what we wish.
