    You find anything? We tried pokerstars but they take a cut and its too fast.

    Came on here to ask the exact same question. Surprised Paddy Power don't have this feature already. Definitely a market for it at the moment!

    We found apparently free software called https://www.pokerth.net/. Seems available on most platforms.
    Hoping to try out next. will let you know.

    Not a poker player at all but I remember reading about a disputed between two pals and Ladbroke I think. Both logged on via same IP but the company withheld winnings on suspicion of money laundering. Can’t remember the outcome or even the reason why they didn’t just play with cards but something to be conscious of if you’ve two people playing from same address.

    I was looking at this yesterday. I think you need to get at least 10 members in the club you set up, before you can divvy out the 3000 chips you get as the club owner.

    Is that for a cash game?

    I was looking at pokerstars yesterday for a private tournament. You can use the play money option, everyone can revolut one person the buy-ins and then that person can divy out the winnings after.

    Basic but does the job - Haven't road tested this one yet with a full crowd but seems promising so far

    Poker Stars have a home game option. I've been using with zoom, and it works great.

    +1 for the pokerstars and zoom. 14 off us had a game tonight and have to say it was good.

    Question re poker stars and home game option. Does that only appear on certain devices ie an actual PC? My other half downloaded the app but there is no option for a home / private game? Are we missing something ? Thanks in advance

    Home games only available on Desktop.

    FYI for this thread - A) just do play chips home games and sort entry yourselves if you don’t want to pay rake to the site

    B) Paddy Power Poker has rake free home games now

    PokerStars and 888poker are two of the largest poker rooms offering this kind of service, and are by far the best for playing poker with friends. Setting up poker games with your friends on these two sites is easy, fast and free. All you need to do is make sure you and your friends have an account with the poker room of your choice and the correct codes to access your private games.

    I can recommend EasyPoker. It's a mobile app that gives you chips and playing cards for free. Works like Kahoot but for poker.
