How are these US guys playing on Pstars?

The rest of us mere mortals can't play on Pokerstars in the US. How are Vegas-based pros like Negreanu and Doug Polk playing on Pokerstars? And then streaming it. Are they leaving the country every time they play???

How likely are you to get caught and account closed if you are using a VPN and an offshore bank account to play on PStars?

So every time Jcarver streams he has to travel?? Where is he based out of? Toronto must be at least a plane ride from wherever he's at in the states.

I guess he doesn't stream all that much these days. When he used to stream every day he lived in Toronto, right?

Highly unlikely you could even do it, unless you had a uber expert in VPN stuff helping you even the youd likely get caught shortly, PS has ways... they have ways man.. I wouldnt even waste your time & money trying with anything you could get off the net, just won;t work.

Yeah don“t even try it. Obviously Pokerstars hates having clients and will of course try to have less clients by actively looking for ways to ban them.

You have a valid point, but you're also missing a huge one - DOJ could slap them with huge fines; DoJ let PS off the hook with the agreement that they wouldn't allow U.S. players back on.

PS likes money - and if that means avoiding huge fines, then they'll do it.

I seem to remember when trying to play on Wsop.Com, they send a text to your phone or something and then determine the location of your phone to verify your in Nevada to allow play. Stars may do the same.

They all leave the country to play. I don't know where the rest of them go, but if you follow Doug Polk on his social media he always puts up a ton of posts in transit to wherever hes going.
