We all know that US players have some restrictions to online poker, e.g. they can't play on BetMost. Norway also has a ban on online poker, I don't know to what extension though but I think it's all online poker?! Any other countries? How is things looking in YOUR country? Discussions to introduce it? What do you think about it? Could be a dumb question on a poker forum but maybe some constructive thoughts could turn up.

well in australia we can not join poker.com because its australian. but at this stage we can join any others. which seems dumb because it means all aussie players $$$$  go to an overseas site, instead of going to an australian company

A friend living in the USA told me that Kentucky banned online poker, the friend unlucky live there said that everyone there can't play online poker (not only Betmost but all poker rooms including the US allow sites).

No you won't be able to play... I doubt poker rooms let U.S Ip address play on their servers.
