Hello,
I am a professional poker player from Seattle, WA and pokerstars.com just recently banned all players from real money who are from the state or WA. I am trying to find a VPN that will allow me to play poker at pokerstars.com. I have used StrongVPN but that product does not work for pokerstars. It just keeps trying to connect. Please help. Thank you

your connection the pokerstar.com is based on your IP. Therefore you would have to be able to VPN into a system that is not located in WA to be able to connect to pokerstar.com

I did connect outside of WA via StrongVPN.com. I was connected to San Fran. CA. But this VPN does not work for some reason. pokerstars.com just gets stuck on the connecting to network status. I am willing to transfer fund or pay for a working solution. Thanks for any input.

It's always possible that PokerStar.com is aware of specific VPN servers and is blocking their respective IPs as well.

What I suggest is finding a friend outside WA who will let you use their VPN server. Obviously PokerStar.com can't detect individual VPN servers.

Or perhaps try the TOR network. TOR is an onion router. It’s similar to a VPN, but in this case, your traffic is sent through numerous servers before reaching the destination IP. Its purpose is anonymity. It’s much more difficult to determine the original source IP when the access path is so deep. It’s also FREE. But it comes at a price; performance. Obviously the more machines, the longer it will take. And since you’re leveraging peers (i.e., other TOR users), there’s no telling the performance and capacity of individual machines. Also, you can’t control the IP address of the last machine, it’s a bit of luck. But I would think/hope on average you would get an IP address that was highly unlikely to be on PokerStar.com’s blacklist.

The only thing you want to be careful with anytime you use a VPN server (even commercial services) or TOR is that you're using SSL, so at least you're assured your data stream cannot be eavesdropped by the endpoint.

P.S. I guess you could also use just a plain ol’ public proxy. You can usually finds lists of public proxies via Google, but they’re not always reliable (sometime they work, sometimes not), lists are not always current. That can be a headache if you need it on a daily basis. But it’s simple and cheap. Again, just be sure PokerStar.com is using SSL all the time so your traffic can’t be eavesdropped.

Even if you are able to bypass the ban by using a proxy the problem then becomes How do you load money into the account or receive payouts since all US banks can no longer send funds to them or receive funds from them so you will also need a method of getting your winnings sent to you. (and they will require some method of verifying you are the account holder so will probably only send the funds to whatever country your proxy says you are located in.)

Hey B, I have an account with Pokerstars. Is Kebrum's speed fast enough for 4 tabling? Do I need to get a bank account outside the U.S.? You can email me at peter@theheartlandteam.com

I remember my friend was using NordVPN.com to bypass location restrictions and played at PokerStars. He's living in Denver, CO.
