2011 was quite an eventful year in the world of poker. We saw multiple new Triple Crown winners, a new golden standard of high roller tournaments moving up to $100,000 and $250,000 and the creation of the Epic Poker League. However, the most notable story of the year was no doubt based on the virtual felt, and that was the swift and sudden death of online poker in the United States.

On April 15th, 2011, like any other day, thousands of Americans tried to log on to the likes of PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker only to find that their money was no longer welcome and that the future of their careers was in serious jeopardy. Black Friday as it has become to be known, was a reminder of the tumultuous path online poker has been on since day one in the USA. That’s not where it ends though. From there we have seen the resiliency and legitimacy of PokerStars, the world’s biggest online poker site, and we have also seen the shady happenings behind-the-scenes that allowed Full Tilt Poker to operate and the public downfall of a few of poker’s biggest names.

Consequently, we at Poker Asia Pacific would like to provide you with a comprehensive page with all the information that you need on how this story began, developed and will evolve over the coming months and years. Here is our one-stop-shop for everything you need to know about Black Friday.
