Officiali you can play PokerStars, TrioBet (MicroGaming), Olympic-Online (IPoker) and Paf (OnGame). Other sites are blocked but in reality if you change your dns to google DNS you can play on every site (u can do it in less than one minue)
Just right now one of my US friend moved to estonia (SNE in PokerStars, known 2p2-er, he can out self if he wants) 3-4 weeks ago and now getting recidency. It costs like €1000-€1500 and u getting it for two or three years. Easy to get.
Estonia is very good for poker players because in the winter, quite cold here (-10 to -30 degrees celcisu), daylight is only 7-8 hours not more and it's very good time to grind. In the summer days are like 16-17 hours long (the sun rises like 2-3 AM, sets 23 PM), very hot and warm summers.
Also Estonian IT services are very good and probably most developed in the world. Free wifi is absolutely every pub, hotel, gas station, even in the parks.
Living expenses are quite cheap. You can get very baller appartment into Tallinn old-town (best and almost most expensive block in Tallinn) for €500-€600 per month.
Also we have lots of woods, very beautiful beaches and in the winter time you can travel to southern europe/north africa very fast and cheap for vacation.
Finally we have lots of pokerplayers in Estonia, some of them are very good. According the PTR: http://www.pokertableratings.com/top-countries
we are in 5-th winning country in the world. So I guarantee it's very good place for poker players.
If u get boored u can travel somewhere else in the europe, it's not the big deal.
If you have any questions - feel free to ask.
EDIT: one thing more. lots of people think that Estonia is 'standard' eastern europe russian style country. But it's not true, estonia is more to western country than russian.
And almost everyone speak here english, so no need to learn any other languages
