The way that I understand cashouts ( not like i have ever had one lmao) is that money that is used say for Staking, can not be cashed out, but only for game play.

Say in the future I stake somebody and transfer that money, lets say 25.00.

My stakee takes that money and by a miracle wins 2000.00 dollars, and transfer back my initial 25.00 plus 1000.00. This gives me $1025.00.

Pokerstars would then not allow me to remove that money from my account and cash out, correct? Would it not only be eligible for tourney play?

This is confusing as heck. The cashout policy is insanely complex.

My real question I guess is that if me and a stakee are constantly swapping money back and forth and make a great profit from it, can we actually ever cash it out?

I think that there is a minimum "play through" amount that has to be done before transferred money can be withdrawn. I am not sure but I think at least 10% has to be played
