One and one only.

There are certain emergency circumstances that allow someone else to take over your game-play for a short period of time, such as having someone finish a tourney for you if you have a stroke in the middle of it. Ummmm. Hiccup.

Other than that, ONE account, ONE person. On a related note, ONE person, ONE account.

To the best of my knowledge, this subject has never been raised in this forum. Hmmm.

Stars tourney rules...1.With trivial exceptions, a player may play on only one account during a tournament and may not "hand off" his seat in mid-event to a different player. Violation of this rule may result in penalties ranging from a warning, to disqualification from the tournament (with partial or full forfeiture of winnings), to barring from PokerStars.

Examples:
2.You get a phone call during a PokerStars tournament. You ask your husband, who has already busted out of that tournament, to play your hands for you. You are on the phone for ten minutes and then resume play. This is permitted.
3.You and a friend, who is a tournament pro, are playing in the same tournament. You agree that if he busts out before you do, he will take over playing your account. This is prohibited.
4.You are playing in a tournament and lose power in your home due to a failure of your power station. You call a friend and he takes over until your power is returned. This is permitted.
5.Your husband is out of town for the weekend, but gives you his password. You log into both his account and yours and play both accounts in the same tournament. This is prohibited.

No no. Sorry for any misunderstanding... I was using a stroke in mid-tourney as a medical emergency example/stroke joke.

Clarence Carter.

See, stroke stroke jokes are too tricky. I'll just stick to drunk and very dry multi-account humor...

Sorry, dude.

To be clear: An unspecified medical emergency that prevents you from finishing a tourney that you've already entered is an acceptable reason to let someone else play on your account until the end of the tourney.

Again, I'm pretty sure this subject has never been covered here.

This why there should be a limit on the number of games a player can play per month. To stop this BS from happening every month. It makes the playing field anything but level.

Having said that, what these insomniacs/team playing account holders may or may not realise is that while they can get off to a flier, eventually the big money is won once the 2700 point "choke" kicks in. THEN they will have to win pots in order to score points. Teknos and sophie tried this "play every game for 15 days straight to get the insurmountable lead and win $1500" strategy. And in the end, Teknos completely crashed on the last day to finish 8th while sophie played one game (that she didnt need to play) too many and ended up dropping to 3rd on the last day. Yes, they won $900 between them, But compared to the $2500 they were planning on winning between them (and actually had in their grasp on the final day before they unwisely chose to play games that they didnt need to play because they were 1-2 in the standings)...that is an EPIC FAIL. In the end, two BETTER players who DIDN'T go down the insomniac route (setubal and huli) took the top two spots. And DESERVEDLY so.

"This why there should be a limit on the number of games a player can play per month. To stop this BS from happening every month.

Tournament Rules. #20

Unethical Play

Poker is an individual (not a team) game. Any action or chat intended to help another player is unethical and is prohibited. Unethical play, such as soft-play (playing less aggressively against a partner) and chip dumping (intentionally losing chips to a partner), may result in penalties, including seizure of funds from the offender's account and/or termination of the account.
With some exceptions (described below), a player may play on only one account during a tournament and may not ‘hand off’ his seat in mid-event to a different player. Violation of this rule may result in penalties including a warning, disqualification from the tournament (with partial or full forfeiture of winnings), and barring from PokerStars.

Examples of permissible exceptions that we give below are intended to describe examples of unplanned but serious events which are beyond your control.

Examples of things which are not beyond your control and therefore prohibited include:

Going to bed and letting someone else finish the tournament.
Entering a tournament then getting on an airplane, or embarking on any other pre-planned trip, while asking a friend to play your account while you change location.
Deciding that it would be fun to finish the Sunday Million at Joe's house then asking Joe to take over your account, while you make the 30-minute trip to his house.
You and a friend are playing in the same tournament. You agree that if he busts out before you do, he will take over playing your account.
Your husband is out of town for the weekend, but gives you his password. You log into both his account and yours and play both accounts in the same tournament.
You have progressed to the final few tables of a tournament and somebody offers you cash equity for your seat. You allow the other player to sign into your account, or you continue to finish the tournament following the explicit instructions given by him.

Examples of things which are beyond your control and therefore allowed, subject to PokerStars being able to corroborate with evidence, include:

A thunderstorm strikes your location and takes the power down for the surrounding area, so you call a friend to take over your account while you make alternative arrangements.
Your child is taken ill and you have to attend hospital, so you call a friend to take over your account.
You are playing in a tournament and lose internet access in your home due to a failure of your ISP. You call a friend and he takes over while you make alternative arrangements.
