Poker might be considered a "gray" area in Brazil but it's like 90% "white".

While Partypoker blocks signups from Brazilian players, Pokerstars signs Ronaldo. You see the difference.

scary for all the ROW players perspective, if i had funds on party atm would be withdrawing straight away.

Also its pretty ****ed up how business laws for so called "poker companies" are completely different to the laws applied in the real world, they can just snatch money if they want it without anyone being able to touch them

People still play on this garbage site after they emplimented "fairplay" without telling anyone first? I insta left lock when they started it just on principle. And they warned everyone month in advance. This should be the nail in the coffin for party poker.

New accounts will not be accepted, but existing accounts will be allowed to play.
