From PokerStars.com regarding the issue
1. Your money is completely safe at PokerStars. It's kept in a segregated account at one of the largest banks in Europe.
2. You do, and will, have 24/7 access to your account funds. You will always be able to get to your money.
3. We have not made a decision one way or another as regards closing our American accounts.
The other thing that I can promise is that we'll keep the lines of communication open to forums such as these. Stay tuned.

PartyPoker, PokerStars to pull out of US market
Gambling911.com has learned that PartyPoker and PokerStars will likely be following 888.com suit and be pulling out of the US market.
Sources close to both poker rooms have informed Gambling911 that statements should be issued some time Monday from the two firms.
PartyGaming, fearful of its share price tumbling, is expected to announce that it will focus exclusively on the European and Asian markets as well as Canada.
The poker sites are going to take the biggest hits as they rake in billions from the US alone I think.
