Cyprus is one of the most popular places among Russian-speaking players, and poker abounds there, even considering the fact that in the southern part of the island gambling is prohibited.
The Republic of Cyprus, which has more than 1.1 million people, is divided into two major parts – the southern, actually the Republic of Cyprus, and the northern, the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
Gambling in the south is officially banned, although poker clubs still exist and they are many. Recently, they have been actively closed, and they say that there will be the legalization and the arrival of large investors. However, in the northern part there is a real paradise for poker players: several dozen casinos, many of which have their own poker clubs.
