      Hello,

      Do you guys have any information about regulation in Latvia? I have moved here for erasmus and can't play anywhere besides the pokerstars (even though the site is banned too), I am not able to connect to party poker acc.

      hey, NijeVaznoKoSam

      well, not really, I have read a lot of stuff on the internet, everywhere it states that the sites are blacklisted and providers should block access to them, but as I said, Pokerstars works perfectly fine (exept the internet site which is blocked), other of my poker software don't, I also read that other software should work fine aswell (from some latvian players) but I have different experience

      But thank you for reply anyway :)

      For those sites which software is blocked you can use some proxy change soft. Some of sites are actively changing their domains every week :)

      New regulations ask sites to pay a large chuck of money for the license but noone wants to pay...

      Hello,

      Keep in mind that using any means (Proxies, VPN servers, Teamviewer to a remote PC) to trick the poker rooms into thinking that you are playing from a different physical location is most probably forbidden in their terms and conditions and will result to the poker room closing your account.

      Best,
      Kamen
