Player A sit on player B seat accidently or maybe on purpose
« on: August 19, 2015, 11:55:36 AM »
It is a unusual situation, but how to proceed if during the dinner break dealers are changed, so the new dealers cant know exactly who were there. players back from the break and player A sit on the seat of player B and lose some (or all) chips before player B back?

Thank you

Every effort should be made to make Player B whole by reestablishing his chip stack to the amount that it was at the break, less any blinds the he would have paid while absent.  Hopefully, Player A's correct stack has chips sufficient to correct the damage made to Player B's stack.  If all of Player A's chips are needed to make Player B whole then Player A is out of the tournament.

Obviously, this is a serious matter.  I doubt that it would have been done on purpose but I would most likely penalize Player A if he was still in the tournament so that it doesn't happen again.
