As you may recall, in April of 2011 the US Federal Bureau of Investigation had seized the pokerstars.com domain. As long as there are charges that need to be adjudicated PS has agreed to not contest their site being seized and restricts access to their site in the USA.

One work around is to employ a VPN ( such as strongvpn.com ). It is a unique way to hide your current ip address in order to unblock geographically blocked sites ie: PS. For instance, you may physically reside in North Carolina, but through a VPN you can make it appear as if you are in Canada / UK or any other country that the specific VPN has an established office in.
