Event structuring / KO + R/A
« Last post by Pietro3000 on Today at 07:44:48 AM »
Hello,

A request from a customer was to set a KO tournament but also allowing R/A. 

The one that will take the bounty is whoever eliminate the player the last, even if the player may be zero out multiple times and allowed to R/A within a grace period.

This sort of structure may lead to other players complaints, do you guys thing that R/A  can or cannot be compatible with KO format. Should we forced make players to pay for the bounty if zero out.

Or should I dis encourage the  customer to apply such mix formats.

Regards

David,

The TDA provides Rules #7 Alternates, Late Registration, & Re-Entries and #27 Re-buys for official guidance.  They require that a full stack be provided for a reentry, any forfeited chips are removed from play, and the rebuying player does not miss a hand.  A player is felted before reentry is implied.

That said, here in Oregon there are many variations in the Social Gaming Poker clubs for reentries, rebuys, and add-ons.  In general, they can be described as follows:
  • Reentry - A player must be completely felted before reentering the tournament.
  • Rebuy - One or more rebuy stacks, up to a predetermined amount (usually 1 to 3), can be purchased during an established rebuy period (for example up to the first break).  These are often called live rebuys and can be added to the players existing stack of any amount.
  • Add-on - An one-time buy of added chips that are not necessarily a full-stack and is usually at a discounted price.  This optional purchase is offered at a specified point in the tournament and is added to the players existing stack.

Tournaments with re purchases and add on. What is more convenient? that buybacks can be bought by having less than the initial stack or can they buy if they even play? I understand that you can buy after having less than the stack Since in this way the one with the most money can have an advantage by double buying plus the initial stack to start playing
thank you very much.

Live Cash Game Rules Questions / Re: Cash game PLO - Difficult ruling

Why bother having a rule if you’'re not going to enforce it?

Which rule are you referring to ?

For me, whether the card fell face up or face down is irrelevant.  I want the best hand to win.

We can take the time to suit the deck to ensure that no funny business occurred, and there aren't (2) Ace of Spades, if you're worried about that.

Push the pot to Player 2.

Dave,

 You've got to be kidding. You're trying to tell me that you would award the pot to the losing player. Sorry, Dave, Shehu J did the right thing.

 Shehu-J...did the players accept your decision as fair? My guess is yes they did. If I'm correct then you made the right call.

I m Possitive that the card that fell off was face up ,anyone who was standing in a 5 meter radious could identify it ,i was standing next to it picked it up and tabled it.
Really my only problem is how often do we announce winning hands with a missing card at showdown. In this situation we have 3 cards identified and 1 missing.

I disagree.

I donít object to giving him credit for having 4 cards, but one of the cards needed to win the hand was the card that hit the floor.

On the other hand, did the dealer see the card, FACE UP, as it was sliding off the table?

I agree with Nick. If you are 100% certain what the four cards in his hand were, award him the pot with a stern warning that next time the ruling might not go in his favor.

Hello Nick C ,thank you for the warm welcome and the very quick response.
I was positive player 2 had 4 cards and also saw the As fall off ,fortunetly i happen to be there when the situation occured.

Long story short ,i awarded the pot to the player with 3 tabled cards even though it felt a bit wrong ,i would feel more dissapointed though giving the pot to the worst hand.

Ur answer was very helpful ,thank you :)
