I can think of at least one prominent PSOer who can no longer play real money games.

I read this list but dunno if all have no real money games as of today:
Malaysia, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Egypt, Qatar, Jordan, Kuwait, Senegal, Nigeria, Tanzania, United Republic of Bahrain, Afghanistan, Occupied Palestinian Territory, Kenya, Mozambique, Rwanda, Vatican City

I suspect either UK or New Jersey regulations are to blame.

The list of countries has been posted elsewhere. Official FAQ on how it affects players is here: http://www.pokerstars.com/poker/room/jurisdiction-faq/

Here's an article someone posted over at 2+2 - http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/sh...&postcount=122

People think Canada might possibly be next ... wonder if maybe I should hurry up and use my School Passes in the next 30 days

PS Also, wonder if GeoVARTA was affected

Personally, I think it has to do with cutting funds to ISIS in all possible ways
Look at the countries listed, they all have one thing in common.........terrorism

As for Canada, for now it's all rumors
People like to start rumors and then you have those that like to fuel it.

So funny

Vatican City?

There's a Buddhist nation in there too. Think they are just leaving markets where it's never been legal or is at best a grey area.

No 2+2 Pokercast available as yet. Anybody else thinking that Mike knew exactly when to wave goodbye?
