Hi I'm new to pokerstars and I don't know how to cashout my funds coz i don't have paypal or credit cards and my bank account has been freezed for a while for some circumstances. Is it possible to transfer my dollars account to my friend and let him be the one to cashout via direct bank trasnfer to his account? Am i going to be traced by pokerstars or is it legal to do that? I haven't tried contacting pokerstars support coz I'm afraid that they will suspend my account or its illegal. Thank you.

I don't know what the rules are at Pokerstars but I once did a transfer of 50$ to another account at 888poker. Before he could withdraw the amount of 50$ he had to play for at least the same money. So he had to play until he payed a rake of 50$.
But that's a while ago and don't know how pokerstars handles this

It's free to open a Moneybookers account and then you'd have no worries! Although if you open a Moneybookers account (Skrill) you would have to have a bank account to transfer the money to from the Moneybookers account.

well from what I read here if your bank account is frozen , then you have a lot more things to worry about then playing poker let alone with drawing funds from the account. I think you need to get your life in order.

The best way is to transfer on Moneybookers , and then on credit cardsif you have it , if not u can call your friend who have Moneybookers , then transfer the money to your friend , with tax of 1% rate 100 dolar , 1 dolar tax. So it's your choice you can withdraw on 100 ways you need right connection.

Does your friend currently play at PokerStars? If so transfer him the funds and have him give you cash. As long as he goes on playing for a while shouldn't raise any flags. They're only watching for money launderer's.

It will be better to open an ewallet first and do the cash out that way. Tell your friend to send you money in your ewallet (Moneybookers, Neteller) and use that money to deposit into Poker Stars. Then request your cash out.
