What is the most reliable way to deposit $$ for pokerstars and fulltilt poker? Since many banks block transactions to poker sites, a third party organization is needed to complete the process. Which one is best? Lowest fees, most reliable, etc..

Online Poker at: Poker Stars
Game: NL Holdem
I use Instadebit without any problems.
You can keep funds there in $US to avoid multiple currency conversion charges.
As far as fees are concerned I am not sure. I think there is a withdrawl fee.

re: Poker & Canadian Deposits
If you look back a couple of weeks on this forum (17th November by Rijckenborg), I think you will find the answers you are looking for. Simply use "Electronic Transfer" straight into your bank account (for deposits and withdrawals), it is very fast (usually 2 or 3 days) and its FREE of charge. Just like you, I also play on Pokerstars and I have a bank account at National Bank of Canada and the "Electronic Transfer option" is fast and convenient. I think any Canadian bank works with Pokerstars.

Your 'fastest' method to deposit is probably MasterCard GiftCard.
pick one up at any 7/11 or Shoppers DrugMart (get MC GiftCard, not Visa)
