Find another player

To find another player, log in and follow these steps:


In the lobby screen select:

  1. Tools
  2. Find...
  3. A Player

On a Windows computer, you may also use the CTRL+F shortcut on your keyboard.

  1. Tap on the Menu button (Android) or the More button (iOS).
  2. Select Search.
  3. Use the search box under Players.

Note that the PokerStars Next Gen app currently doesn't have the player search feature.

If your search does not produce any results, it indicates that the player is either:

  • Currently offline
  • Online but not seated at any table
  • Playing in a Home Game
  • Has the Hide from Search Feature activated

The Hide from Search Feature prevents anyone from using the Find a Player tool to locate them. You can activate this option by selecting:

  1. Settings
  2. Account Details
  3. Hide from Search Feature
  1. Tap on the Menu button (Android) or the More button (iOS).
  2. Settings & Tools
  3. General Settings
  4. Hide from Search Feature

The feature is currently not available on the PokerStars Next Gen app.

Your friends will not be able to find you either if they search you while this option is activated. To deactivate it, repeat the above steps to remove the checkmark next to the feature.
