Online poker in the Netherlands: legal background
Although the Netherlands can be considered as a very liberal country in several aspects, when it comes to online gambling, the situation is highly different, at least on the paper. In theory, Dutch players can only join licensed poker rooms, and it's illegal to join offshore sites, but in real life, a few poker rooms have restricted access to Dutch users. Even recently the Dutch Court of Appeals ruled that PokerStars.EU profits were tax-free. In short, despite the many attempts of the Dutch government to shut-down online poker, it's quite alive, and players keep joining the best online poker rooms.
