      Hi pareto;
      no, you must clear bonus before you withdraw anything from your account...

      Wrong. I asked them about this during the WCOOP last summer.

      From my email with pokerstars about this subject:
      Hello Vargan,

      Thank you for your email.

      No, there are no limits as to when you can withdraw your money apart from
      the normal security features you mention.

      What is important for us is that you earn the FPPs for the release of the
      bonus. But the money is yours, and our policy is that our players always
      should be able to handle their money as they want.

      I hope this answers your question. If you should have any further questions,
      please don't hesitate to write us again. We are always happy to help you in
      any way we can.


      Regards,

      FredrikS

      You can deposit $1000, get the full bonus. Then after 2 days, you can withdraw $1000 again and still be able to clear the bonus. As he says, they want you to produce enough rake. Most bonuses equal a 20-25% rakeback. So if you can be short of the deposit for a few days, I recommend depositing the ammount required to get the full bonus. :]

      Hope this helps.

      Thank you very much for sharing this!
      So now it's no-brainer for everyone to deposit $1k even if you play microstakes (as long as you earn FPP ofc), because those 6 months must be enough

      Too bad I don't have 1000$ sitting on my MoneyBookers account :P

      As I can see once or twice per year, right?

      ok then
      Exactly how much point (time on the site) I need to withdraw?
      Can I deposit and snap withdraw?

      Share more information if you have it...

      Best regards,

      If you deposit money, you can't withdraw anything for 48 hours.
      (This is for security reasons.)

      This was the policy last summer, I doubt they have changed it.

      I wish I had $1000 too. Last reloadbonus i got $12.50. :]

      You need 20x bonus amount, so 5000 VPP for $250. It looks like you can deposit & withdraw according to Vargan's post, so it shouldn't be problem.

      I made simple calculation how many hands do you need to play to get full ($250) bonus:

      NO-LIMIT FR:

      NL10 FR = 125,000
      NL25 FR = 42,000
      NL50 FR = 19,000 - 23,000
      NL100 FR = 13,500 - 15,600
      NL200 FR = 10,000 - 11,000
      NL400 FR = 7,500 - 8,800
      NL600 FR = 6,700
      NL1000 FR = 5,000

      NO-LIMIT SH:

      NL25 SH = 45,000 - 50,000
      NL50 SH = 23,000
      NL100 SH = 11,000
      NL200 SH = 9,400
      NL400 SH = 7,600
      NL600 SH = 7,000
      NL1000 SH = 6,300


      FIXED LIMIT FR:
      0,5/1 FL FR = 30,000

      FIXED LIMIT SH:
      FFP's:
      0,5/1 FL SH= 22,000 - 25,000
      1/2 FL SH = 13,000
      2/4 FL SH = 10,000
      3/6 FL SH = 6,400
      5/10 FL SH = 4,200 - 4,500
      10/20 FL SH = 3,200 - 3,600
      15/30 FL SH = 3,000


      PL OMAHA:
      PL Omaha 200 = 6,300

      So, let's go for few 15/30 FL SH tables and you're done in 2 days :D

      this seems fairly easy to clear even playing NL10
      125,000 hands in 6 omnths is easy
