Default Real money on Pokerstars?

I want to start playing with real money and will set a budget. I just want to know if its safe to play it on Pokerstars.com. Anyone ever had a problem with it? Any tips or advice when you play with real money online? (in terms of security?)

yes, pokerstars is about as safe as they come.

however it would be remiss of us not to mention that the owner of pokerstars is facing a total of something like 50 years in jail for money laundering and bank fraud, but the joke's on the doj because he isn't going to live that long.

Here is an article on that subject. The main thing is just not to log onto your online poker accounts from a public computer or really any computer other than your personal computer. You should be fine. Just use common sense.

Pokerstars is the safest online poker site on the internet fwiw

Independently audited RNG (what decides the cards randomly)
Segregated player funds from operating funds

etc.

Stars is a good choice. Good luck!
