On the rail – PokerStars.fr prohibits non-French players
PokerStars.fr has always been available for French players, and a number of foreign players that had a European bank account and came from an approved list of nations.
Sadly for those of us who have enjoyed the fun of playing with the French, this will end on February 13th. PokerStars are now in the process to email their customers of the change, and only players from mainland France or the country`s overseas territories will be able to play on the software.
In the email sent, Amaya; the owners of PokerStars says the changes are due to ‘an effort to adapt to a constantly changing environment’.
Rest assured, if you are one with funds or even StarsCoin in the client, you will be able to login and withdraw your funds, and spend your StarsCoin in the VIP Store on everything except online tournament tickets.
