Quandary

It's a good problem to have, but the amounts in my poker accounts has risen to a level that I'm not comfortable with leaving in online accounts.

I haven't really worried about this problem before, as I trusted poker rooms too much with the responsibility of protecting my money. I'm trying not to make that mistake again, but things are just not as easy as they once were.

If anyone out there has requested a payment by paper check from PokerStars or Full Tilt Poker, could they please leave a comment telling me how long the process took from beginning to end. Please bear in mind that the original deposits were made via Neteller some time ago and I will have to begin from square one. I expect to be especially difficult since I have moved to a new home address since I opened both accounts.

I have been very lazy in my duties to open a new online money transfer option for myself, but I think my procrastination has been in hopes of some "Knight in Shining Armor" coming to my rescue with a perfect solution. None have arrived.

In the meantime, please check out this full tilt poker review, this titan poker review and this party poker bonus. Thanks.

I'm in the process of withdrawing on FT via check. First I had to send an email to support with a copy of my license and a bill sent to the address listed on my FT account. They responded within 24 hrs. Then I had to sign onto FT and request my withdrawal. I haven't gotten the check yet (its been less than 2 wks), but when I do, I'll post all about it. Overall, though, I've only heard good things, especially if you don't need the money right away. Good luck.

If I ever have your problem.. which I hope to.. I am going to sign up for an ePassport account.. I think their ATM option lets you take out like 300 a day or something without fee's.. and then siphon it off a little at a time in cash..

Withdrew from FT and Stars for the WSOP, both checks in hand within 10 days.

FT you need to send in personal information though.
