Withdrawing with bitcoin

Hey friends, I just binked a 5k first place finish in an online tourney on ACR. Wondering if anybody has had any experience with withdrawing Funds by using bitcoin through Coinbase?

I used to solely play on Pokerstars but recently moved to the US. I don’t have any experience withdrawing from ACR yet.

I have read some people recommend setting up an intermediary bitcoin wallet before transferring to Coinbase to get funds to your bank account. However I just did a direct transfer to Coinbase.

Is it okay to directly transfer to Coinbase?
Or should I set up an intermediary wallet for the future?

Thanks for any thoughts or stories of previous experiences.

    Do NOT try to withdraw direct into coinbase

    Instead set up another wallet(ie blockchain) and send BTC from ACR to blockchain. Then send funds from blockchain to coinbase.

    Congrats on your MTT win :)

    Thanks! I did not know prior and just requested a withdrawal straight to Coinbase. The 5k showed up in my Coinbase wallet without any problems. Out of curiosity, how would Coinbase know where the transfer is coming from if it’s through bitcoin?
