yes I had the same reaction, the deal made no sense. why not wait and get at least third place.

As a TD I would state that much and then let them decide on the deal.

Wow.

People’s stupidity never ceases to amaze me.

If I were playing, I’d sooner dump chips (or double up in the process) and take the 3rd place money than agree to chop for less.

Frank...I know it occurs on a regular basis but I've always been against management getting involved. If they want to chop or work out some split arrangement, let them do it in the parking lot.

As to your question. If the chip leader has an enormous chip lead, I imagine I'd settle for less in second or third position.

Nice to hear your replies, Boris and Bill. Always enjoy the back and forth.

Wow...hiding and throwing cards off the table? Sounds like your players need background checks before being seated. :D

 Not an expert on auto shufflers but my guess, if one of your players was that devious they would find a way to slip in a couple of extra aces and ditch a deuce or two.

 I don't believe your shuffler can detect two aces of spades...can it? 52 cards are no guarantee.

Anything can happen in gambling, a cheater is not always a serial cheater. In some countries in Europe, cheating is not subject of fine nor jail time. Most of the time, you just get a temporary ban from the casino/club. At worst, you get a lifetime time ban on gambling places in the country.

About the shuffling machines, new ones can sort the deck =)

Hello Everyone,

Anyone had the situation where with 3 players left, the chip leader negotiates a chop where the other 2 players are getting less money than is calculated by the prize pool? For example: The official prize pool is: 1st= $1000, 2nd=$600, 3rd=$400. The chip leader talks the other 2 players into taking $300 each and making 1st place $1400. Would you let the other 2 players accept the deal or intervene on their behalf? This actually happened!

Let's take a look at TeamPoker again and see if it has merit in Tournament Poker?

February 23, 2019 the Australian Poker Tour (APT) Launched its Australian National Team Series along with their standard tournament structures.
Team Poker has been integrated into our Partners' www.CasinoWare.net Poker Room Management software and is available to test and play for free. The Team Poker System allows any size team to compete in poker tournaments and the none-contact seating protocol doesn't allow teammates on the same table with opponents so there is never a chance of collusion.

 Years ago, when working on the floor, I would often refer to Chuck Ferry's book...RULES OF POKER. "When strict enforcement of a rule will cause an obviously unfair result, the floorperson shall have the unrestricted right to waive any rule and make the decision.



 I had an incident that is worth mentioning, primarily because it happened to me and I still remember it 35 years later. I was playing in a low limit stud game at the Sams Town Casino in Las Vegas. I was holding a high flush on sixth street. While pitching the river card, the dealer pitched me two cards that were stuck together. My hand was dead. So, instead of winning the pot I got my money back.
Still pisses me off! ::)

I know Roberts Rules is not for tournaments but we often turn to them when these weird situations occur.

Roberts Rules of Poker applies to both cash and tournament play and distinguishes differences.  It also includes Section 15 - TOURNAMENTS.. Quoting from the introduction: "The author has strongly supported uniform poker rules, and applauds the work done in this direction by the Tournament Director’s Association (TDA). Nearly all the rules herein are compatible with the TDA rules, although there are some slight differences in wording."

How about returning all bets and re-deal?

I know Roberts Rules is not for tournaments but we often turn to them when these weird situations occur.

MISDEAL
 An incorrect number of cards has been dealt to a player, except the top card may be dealt if it goes to the player in the proper sequence.


It is part of a discussion from several weeks about opening a window for players to force a misdeal.

My example was about someone not happy with his cards while action pending. Decide to hide/throw a card outside the table and declare he is missing a card. Yes, this is actually cheating and subject to many differents penalties including jail in some places, BUT the time it could take to discover the rabbit could be longer than "OK Misdeal".

If the table does not have a shuffling machine (and the dealer does not count the deck after this), you can't realize the real situation.
If the table does have a shuffling machine, you will discover the real situation once the redeal is started, since your 51 cards deck is in the shuffling machine and it will take between 25 seconds and 1 minute to complete the machine shuffle (and obviously twice this time because 99% of the dealers will just relaunch the shuffling machine thinking about a false positive from the machine, like it could happen something like 10 times in a day)

Definitely not re-dealing =)
