I live in Maryland, in the USA. So how do I sign up?
I've been looking at the various sites to play online and it seems all the ones I've looked at so far say you can't play if you're from Maryland. Now I've seen people playing online at the casino (while they are playing live poker!) but I suppose they could be from an adjoining state.
How do they determine residence? Is it where you live or where you're playing from? I mean I could always use a friend's address in Virginia to sign up, my bank is a multistate bank so it has branches in Virginia.
I guess I just don't want to win and then have them not pay me.

I only have experience with PokerStars, but I imagine other sites are similar. You give them an address when you sign up.
They can tell where you are playing from by looking at your IP address (if they care - as PS does). If they don't care, or if you use a VPN, you can play.
You have to verify your identity in order to cash out. If you have been lying to the site, your cash out will be denied, and you will probably have your account frozen.
I think your question should be "Where can I play online for real money from Maryland and cash out?".. I don't know the specific circumstances of the state of Maryland, but our US based members play CC events on Americas CardRoom, BlackChipPoker, BetOnline, SportsBetting, and InterTops.
