      ask them why they think it's dangerous. They'll answer some shit about poker sites stealing your money, or something equally short-sighted. Slap them in the face, call them an idiot, then cash out however you want.

      Seriously though, I really don't see what the problem could be. It's not like anyone can steal your money even if they somehow got your account number or IBAN, so in a way it's even safer than e-wallets. I've done loads of bank transfers from partypoker (and moneybookers for that matter), never had a problem.

      If you're cashing out less then 100k then the only way it's dangerous is if you give your money to 2 guys with long beards and strange eyes, each with a Kalashnikov on their back, who have a rusty van and promise to transport the money where you need to.

      That 100k it's put with no reason, i think your money would be safe no matter how much are we talking about.
