You know how poker works right...? You take money from players - not the poker sites, the poker site profits AS you are taking money from players (Rake). They always win.
I completely agree, but with one addition.
A poker room like PokerStars
probably has hundreds of millions of dollars in the accounts of the players. Somebody is making money on that balance and it's a good bet that it's PokerStars, at least in part. Making a withdrawal would cost them money in that sense but I'm sure that wouldn't affect their decision to let you withdraw funds. As was said above, they're making plenty on the rake.
The thing that worries me, and prevents me from keeping too much in my account, is that they can arbitrarily suspend my account and deny me access to my funds if they sense some impropriety on my part or on the part of someone who they can connect to me.
