Really, unless you are playing 2/4+ I think you can still make a decent win rate as a good player on a place like PS. If you are playing higher than that for your living, than consider moving to Canada/Mexico for playing poker, and just fly back when you feel like being "home".

If you are playing 50nl or 100nl, than your winrate isn't going to be so drastically different that it'll be worth the hassle and potential legal problems.

Thank all for your valued inputs. I decided to stick to the United States friendly sites for now.

One last question, on these non-Us sites, you need to have a foreign ip address right? If you are register at these foreign sites with foreign bank account but you have an American ip address, you get into big trouble right? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

You are almost certainly right about that, but the IP address is the easiest thing to fake. Just use a proxy like the one I suggested in my previous post. Other things are more difficult to fake, e.g. your phone number. You usually don't need it, but occasionally you do. I requested my first cashout from Party Poker to Moneybookers today, and some guy with an Indian accent called me on my mobile phone to verify that I'm the one who requested the cashout. I had to tell him my E-mail address and my date of birth.

Fredik, thanks for the link that you suggested. It's greatly appreciated. By any chance, are you a US player playing on party poker?

No, I'm a Swedish player who plays at Full Tilt most of the time, and sometimes at Party Poker.

Their are problems with your alternative idea.

1. Mexico has a two year waiting period before one can move there.

2. One must also prove you'll be supporting yourself without taking a Mexican job.

3. If one jumps the border they'll send one to a Mexican prison for two years, rather than just kicking one out.

When I found out all these things about Mexico, I thought that we should abandon our "racist policies" and just copy the Mexican system

Fredrik is the only guy he asked directly, otherwise he just asked how to break the law, which according to all action movies and shows, is not illegal

It's not against the law for Americans to play at the sites banning us-that is purely a rules violation of the site in question, for which they will close your account and steal ones funds-a good reason not to play there, even if they allow Americans again.
