I don't want the FBI showing up at my door.

I'm a USA player.
Okay, so I was beyond bored the other day. So i decided to download poker stars and play some funny money zoom. Something to waste my time on and have some fun.

Anyways, when the Stars lobby pulled up, I noticed it had the real money poker tables. I immediately thought wtf, how am I able to rail real money games on poker stars? I know for a fact it did not have real money cash games and tournaments on my friends lab top the previous night. My first thought was to close the program and uninstall it. Which i did, of course after looking at the Sunday million line up left. To realize BIGDOGPCKT5'S however you spell it, was doing quit well with two tables left. As bad as I wanted to rail my favorite tournament in online poker, I did not want Pokerstars to find a real money program installed under my IP address in America . So i closed the program and uninstalled it.

So, the question is, can Americans still rail real money Pokerstars tourneys?
I would love to rail the big Sunday tournament, especially if one of my friends or well known players are making deep runs.
As of right now the program is uninstalled, does any American have it installed? I'm not trying to get some government conspiracy call just because i wanted to rail a couple buddies.

Cliffs.
-download pokerstars as a USA citzen
- has real money games.
- wants to know if its illegal to have program installed
