The following countries are also blocked and no play money games are available: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Zimbabwe, Libya, Sudan, North Korea, Cuba, Myanmar, Yemen.

Some of the players that found early about the case managed to get a quick response from PokerStars support, which explained:
"Please note our management team regularly reviews our operations along with independent 3rd party professionals to assess the business risks and opportunities for our brands on a market-by-market basis. Following our most recent review, it was determined that we would no longer offer real money games in Turkey starting today.

We apologize for this inconvenience, and hope you’ve enjoyed your experience
