Playing Poker stars on 2 computers--at the same time.
Here is my question.
I have my big screen on my PC. It is in my office. Sometimes I want to play a tourney that occurs at the time I need to cook dinner for my daughter, and I can play on my laptop in the kitchen while get stuff ready to cook. But I only need to be in the kitchen for 15 minutes here and 10 minutes there, the rest of the time I can play hands on my office puter. If I have stars open on 2 machines over the same internet connection - office PC over the R45 (internet) cable and my laptop over wireless - am I breaching any TOS, or can I even log on once I am logged on with another machine?
I am thinking I will play on my laptop and just log off when I change rooms, but this means I am missing a hand or 2 by the time I log on again.

If I am logged on my laptop, I can't log in on my smartphone -> I have to log out on laptop first.
You can use software like Remote Desktop (RealVNC etc), to see and interact with your PC's desktop on your laptop screen.

Why not just start the tourney on your laptop in the office, then carry it into the kitchen and back again when you need to go there? You can play hands as you walk and carry the laptop so you won't miss any. You can hook the laptop up to the big screen via hdmi cable, and log out and switch back to your main office computer during the breaks if you must.
But yeah, if that isn't an option for some reason, remote desktop software seems like it could be a good solution.
