Sorry about the cheesy caps in the title, I was trying to get the word "poker" to jump out at poker players. I'm a US resident, and with some photoshopped documentation, mail forwarding, phone forwarding, VPN, and other precautions, I have set myself back up on online poker sites.
Right now getting money ON Party and Stars is fairly easy, and getting money off Party is reasonably easy as well. (They don't have near the precautions and limitations Stars does.) But the only site with any volume is Stars, so that's the place I have been playing. I've managed to get moneybookers verified and some other methods used/verified as well, but I am still having to put in a significant amount of volume on Party in order to cash out regularly with ukash and debit card linked to account (via paypal and others) and whatnot.
And sending moneybookers to Virwox to buy SLL and trade for btc loses waaaayy too much. I feel like my only other option is to look for things on ebay that I can buy with mb and then re-sell. Or wait for the Series and just do large player transfers every summer, which will set off alarms on my account.
I know I'm disclosing a lot and running some risks posting this, but are there any other US players out there on Stars?? How are you getting money OFF the site? All I want to do is play mah pokers!
And no, Micon, seals with clubs 10btc freerolls are not enough to live on.
