Sad news, Cardschaters.

I have failed to open poker web sites in my browser.
pokerstars, 888 Poker, unibet poker... are now down in Belarus.
Looks like Belarusian players will not be able to play poker online anymore.

Drives me crazy that governments, big tech and banks want to be glorified babysitters. Honestly, let people make their own choices. Isn't that why we all pay taxes? Here is your money, now leave me alone. Whole world has gone to poop.

This clearly has something to do with that incident a few days ago regarding the plane flight that was diverted and made to land in Vilnius, I believe it was?

Tragic news, I think my Team Captain in the CC League is from Belarus, but perhaps I am mistaken... he has said nothing about this so far, but I cannot be certain where he lives.

The poker world continues to fracture into many pieces, who will care for us? Governments continue to fight amongst themselves, our world is evil and corrupt. Can't we just all get along? sigh

If this is true, it would be terrible news for recreational players in this country. Professionals can find another country to continue playing, as with players from other countries

Complicated situation, I hope it is not definitive or for a long period as we have seen in other countries.

Ah, yes. This very well could have something to do with that issue.

And for curiosity's sake, I did happen to check yesterday's PokerStars freeroll and noticed there were a couple of members from Belarus who finished in the top 60. Whether or not they are actually in Belarus, I have no way of knowing.

What a shame that this is happening with Belarus. Can someone give a link to see this history of the plane, I have not had time to see the news and it sounds very interesting. Thank you for any information you can provide. Regards.

I don't know which country you think I am from but it's certainly nothing like that image.

I have been searching for any kind of information to recognize your statement that Belarus has been banned from playing online poker.

This is my 2nd request to provide reported information on this topic.


Sorry for answering so late. I got home a few minutes ago. I could not find any news today and yesterday (partly because our main news web site is down (tut.by), but it is impossible to visit pokerstars.com, 888poker.com, unibet.com and other sites. I tried to do it from home and from work. When I tried to open PokerStars.com from work there was the following message: "Access to the information resource is limited on the basis of the decision of the Ministry of Information of the Republic of Belarus, adopted in accordance with the Law of the Republic of Belarus "On Mass Media"
When I am typing pokerstars.com now, the following message appears: you can not access this website. That's it. Nothing!

I was able to open my PokersStars account a few minutes ago, but failed to open Unibet and 888 Poker.
