Yes. Online poker from foreign providers is restricted in Turkey, and as such the internet domains and ISPs of many poker rooms are blocked.
If you are unable to connect to a poker site simply use a cheap VPN service such as StrongVPN or HideMyAss to do so. Site reps have confirmed on the forums that VPNs are not prohibited, with the exception of VPN use to play online from the USA.
