Home Games – Own Poker Club on PokerStars
PokerStars offers its customers an exclusive opportunity to create their own poker games online – Home Games. “Home Games” allow players to set up poker club to organize their own tournaments and create their own cash games, in which only members of the club can participate.
Thus, PokerStars users can create tables for a game, where only their friends or acquaintances will participate, and you cannot do it at the regular tables. Having set up your club, you automatically become its manager and can manage it on your own. In other words, “Home Games” allow you to open your own mini poker room on PokerStars.
