I would like to take this opportunity to clarify PokerStars policy and the explain the actions that were taken in this case.
We were contacted by '$indabank111' on 28th May. A copy of the email was earlier posted in this thread. As a resolution to that email, the playing restriction covering both accounts was removed. We can confirm that this action was carried out in error. The playing restriction on both '$indabank111' and 'bigbluffzinc' has now been reapplied.
PokerStars policy on players with financial agreements between each other playing with each other can be found at:
Point 9 states:
If you are involved in staking, swaps, profit-sharing, or any kind of bankroll sharing agreement with another player, you may not play at the same cash game table or in the same Sit & Go tournament as that player.
We would like to reiterate that this rule is still in effect and PokerStars will continue enforcement. Please accept our apologies for the error and any subsequent confusion that was caused in this case.
If any poster has further questions on this case, or any related queries/concerns, please feel free to contact me at
