When to remove chips from play on a DQ'd player
« on: April 19, 2018, 02:16:36 PM »
Weird Situation the other day.  5 way pot, with 3 players all in.  One of the all-in players basically loses it while dealer is trying to sort out the side pots.  Ends up getting DQ'd before the flops comes out.

Once the chips are in the pot, they belong to the pot - and the winner of the hand.

Your poll is missing some options regarding the cards. The chips are in the pot, but the hand is dead and should be mucked. I.E., He cannot win the pot.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown.
But how much does it cost to knock on wood?

Very interesting scenario Ralph!
  • A legitimate wager was made, and as Dave said, those chips are in the pot.
  • The wagering player is DQ before the hand completes.
  • The DQ'd player's hand is dead.
  • The rest of this hand should complete with the remaining live hands.

So, I wouldn't vote for either of the two options currently in your poll.  Instead, all of the chips in the pot would be distributed to the winners with live hands - as Dave said.
