Withdrawals can only be made after at least 48 hours from the last deposit 

If you withdraw before PokerStars has a deposit deal for your account, you will not be entitled to the discount until you make a deposit.

Withdrawals will be processed according to the deposit form you used, from the most distant to the most recent. Only the winning number, greater than the amount you have deposited, may be removed by the process you have specified. 

Example: You are depositing USD 100 with Skrill. If you withdraw less than USD 100, the money will be moved to your Skrill Tk automatically. If you remove more than USD 100, USD 100 will go to Skrill, the remainder will go to Skrill or some other system of your choosing.
