Online Poker Network Blocks Canadian Players

The Entraction Poker Network has taken the unusual move of banning Canadian players effective this month.  Additionally they will not be allowing players from Russia, Norway, Israel and Turkey.

It was not immediately clear as to why Entraction would begin blocking access to Canadian poker players though individual provinces have considered regulations and restrictions in the past including Alberta and Ontario.  The later province has gone as far as to suggest it might begin blocking IP access to online poker websites. 

Entraction is currently the 11th largest online poker network in the world and averages around 1200 real cash players per day.
