They will make exceptions if you contact support (ie. for playing priv. tourneys).
In most cases this happens when it's more than one person in the same family playing on a poker site (ie. husband & wife, etc.).
Just sayin.... the auto ban for life thing is a bit extreme.... BUT for sure you should be aware that doing what you're planning on doing is against the rules on every poker site (you can't be multi-accounting... OR playing someone else's acc't.). Read up on the rules on the poker site you're playing on.
^^^^All good advice. On the 1st point in bold, however, I would hope they did now allow exceptions to the 45 rule. Some of our buy-ins have had only 2 tables. And while collusion can happen via severals venues, IMO it's not fair to all the others (unless everyone regiatered approves) knowing that 2 people could
be sitting right next to each other on the couch at the same table.
On the 2nd highlight in bold, This may be true, but probably impossible to prove. Maybe I should never put this in writing, but there have been a handful of times where my boyfriend had to drive home (10 minutes away), had a big stack, and asked me to play until he gets there - most often a freeroll donkfest. If anyone sees that as unethical or morally corrupt, well... too bad. We live together now, so not an issue. And we do play in the same MTTs occasionally. FT says not a problem at all.
To the OP, it can be done and you'd probably get away with it. It is
against the rules. You didn't ask for advice or opinions, so I'm not gonna give you any. Just the facts (or what I believe they are).
