Motobaka72,

 Excellent response. If I were running a tournament I would make that announcement before the tournament begins. Not a lecture just a brief simple message. " Act in turn...make your intentions clear." Other rules could also be explained about re-buys or any special conditions that might apply but if you get those two points across, it could make a big difference when the time comes for you to make a decision using rule #1.

Poker TDA Rules & Procedures Questions, General / Re: player absence

Our policy is that we do not remove the Bags/Receipts from the table until a player shows up or is blinded out.

Thusly, we have the player's information, and will pay the money into the Cage get the winnings to the player when we see them again.

We have been using BB Ante at our casino for two months now.  Also, very positive reviews.

 Yes, of course, what you say is true. The problem comes from those "photo finishes" when players are arguing over which was done or said first. Another unclear action that the floor must sort out.

...

What I do in situations like this is to let the players know that they are risking not being happy with the result of the interpretation of the floor.  If you want to play it close, that is your prerogative, but it is also the floor´s decision on whether if it was close enough to be considered a raise or not.

At a Knock Out Tournament with re-entries what happens with the bounty if someone decides to surrender?

I'd add it to the prize pool.

Being “close to the money” is irrelevant. After all, how would you decide how close is close enough? Similarly, stack size is irrelevant.

There’s no rule stating that an absent player could be penalized merely because of their absence. Therefore, once a player has bought in, they are entitled to be absent as long as they want.

Bottom line, the stack remains in until blinded off. If the stack manages to make it into the money while being blinded off, so be it. The prize money will be set aside until it can be given to the player.

I think he means what happens if in day 2 (where I guess there are no more registrations open) a person close to the money is absent.  Also, if the stack should remain in place until it is blinded off or should it be removed after a while.
