Thank you for contacting PokerStars regarding your poker party.
Please note that players from the same location or household are not allowed to play at the same ring game table or Sit & Go with 45 players or less. This restriction does not apply to scheduled 2-player heads-up matches or Multi-Table Tournaments (MTTs). In heads-up matches, since there are only two players, the only person with whom you can share your cards with, is your opponent, which serves no benefit to the players participating in the heads-up match. In MTTs, due to the large numbers of players competing in these games, friends or relatives are unlikely to be seated at the same table.
When it comes to Zoom ring games, players from the same location are able to join the same Zoom pool, but the system will prevent them from being seated at the same table.
Additionally, please note that players from the same location are able to play in the same Home Game ring games and tournaments.
Please let us know if you have any other questions and thank you for playing at PokerStars.
