Paradise Poker No Longer Accepts Canadians

Sadly, Paradise poker has closed it’s doors to Canadian players. Paradise Poker was one of pioneers of online poker earlier this decade, but the poker site has seen a steep decline in recent years.

After being sold to “Sportingbet” in 2006 for $300 Million, Paradise Poker was supposed to be the poker client of the biggest Sportsbook online. However, after laws were passed effectively making online poker illegal in the United States, the site saw a massive drop in revenues.

Paradise has since bounced around and served their clients through different poker networks but have now landed up on the “Entraction Network” whose dealing prohibit them from serving players from Canada. If you are a Canadian looking for a poker site, then see our list of poker sites for players from Canada.

Martin Jacobson is the WSOP 2014 Winner

Martin Jacobson is a 27-year-old professional poker player from Sweden that got his start playing online, now he is now the improbable WSOP 2014 winner and takes home a cool 10 Million in prize money.

After entering the “November 9” at 8th place in chips with only 15,000,000 in chips, while the leader (Jorryt Van Hoof) had 38,000,000, the oddsmakers at the Pinnacle online betting site had Jacobson pegged as a 7/1 longshot to win the 2014 WSOP.

The 2014 WSOP marked the first time in history that an American failed to make the top 3 spots. There were no Canadians to reach the November 9 this year.
