Well, since Greeks are banned from this competition (don't ask me why) maybe some guy can tell those people about Stratego.
stratego = chess + poker ?

Zak I was outraged when heard Greeks were not allowed to participate. Then I went to link and found this---
- General PSPC Terms & Conditions apply
- -- Players from Italy, France, Spain, Greece and Portugal are not eligible to participate
- -- Your game must be your own original work and should not be copied from other sources
So I think it is fair to say they are biased against the Mediterranean in general .
Yes Professor Nortrom I have heard of some strong sentiment coming from some European countries that have very strict rules around gambling. I think Don Homer and I were posting about a video game and the sale of loot boxes. It is a bit odd how different countries view such activity but understandable. I recall when Star Wars came out back in 70's it was a fun PG-parental guidance rated movie. Then we in the states hear that a Scandinavian country labeled it as X-adults only rated over there. Gaming /Gambling was always illegal in most parts of the United States for a majority of the 1900s now most States run a lottery to raise money. Heck sports betting is now opening up for most of us here.

Any idea why's that? I once tried to get some easy €€ out of betting on darts matches, but the betting site didn't accept Dutch citizens due to 'kansspelautoriteit' which is the authority in NL for gambling related activities. Apparently some Dutch laws are too much hassle for them.
It may not be due to pokerstarsalive having anything against said countries, but their own laws making it undesirable to allow players from this country.
It seems kinda stupid to rule those countries out, but oh well..
