Personally, I don't see a point in 25 antes, the chip stacks at the start of the tournament are too big for them to make any steals. I do like ante's but think they should be brought in later. In Derby I brought them in at 400/800/100 suited the recreational game quite well imo.

I would however get rid of them in Turbo's

I ran my first no limit freezeout there. It was a deepstacked 5000 chips on a 30 min clock. £30 entry no juice. The field was halved in the first 2 hands, players didn't get it at all to start with. And I upgraded from an egg timer to a laptop with actual tournament software lol, I was like a pig in shit.

I ran a £5 rebuy with 500 chips at Gala Brum, back in the day. Cardroom held 50 and used to plough through 45 rebuys a hand  Smiley
Had a £2k GTE used to make £3k.

I remember it well. Self deal, right?

Absolutely unless we had a spare hanging around Smiley

Whilst in Barcelona I went to a fish market and this contraption was being used to sharpen their knives, just thought Red-dog may be interested in this modern technology Smiley

Most cardrooms use the significant action as 2 actions with chips and 3 without chips

i.e.
fold fold or check check is not significant

call call, call fold or call raise OR check check check for example are significant.

(If you are dwelling and can't see out the corner of your eye that chips are going into the pot and action is on you, take your bloody sun glasses off, and if you never heard a check or all-in, take your bloody headphones off Smiley )

If you call time or it is noticed by the dealer before significant action. Then hand is still live.

There has been many times I have indicated to a player that the action is on them and players infront decide to pass/fold. If I call time and 5 people fold after I am not killing the players hand. And other players will get warning.

Something doesn't ring true.

If the pot was apparently (wrongly) uncontested then why would the dealer deal the river?
41  Poker Forums / The Rail / Re: All-in hand at DTD tournament on: August 26, 2013, 05:33:02 PM
Dealer should be shot then. As soon as a player is all-in only the dealer should kill the cards in a tournament.

Something isn't right here.

If it is down to 2 players before the river was known all cards should be on their backs? It is then out of the hands of the player and their cards cannot be killed unless by a dealer?

First of all can I say that I am not posting on behalf of DTD before you all try and shoot me down.

After reading the first 2 pages I was like WTF ...... never? Then after Toms post it became a little clearer.
I think only 1 person (Gouty) has touched on the proper reason in this instance.

Once the bet is called it is then a showdown and the dealer will then ask to see the hands to determine what wins.
In this instance the dealer hasn't asked and the cards were prematurely shown with no inference from the dealer to show.

Regarding the ?call? does the ?caller? believe that he has called or is trying to induce a player to expose prematurely. There are 2 questions here, is it now accepted action (as I Know It states) or is it a mistake or inducing by the caller.

I suspect it is was taken by the TD as a genuine mistake, and didn't feel that the player would have called the 6k (this is where you have to trust the TD).

Regarding the penalty, I don't know the history of the "caller" he may have had previous dubious or the TD may have given the penalty to ensure that if it happened next time it will be considered "accepted action" or to give a harsher punishment if it happened again and he thought it was a stroke.

I don't know the full circumstances and not privy to the TD's information as most of us aren't. But rulings are not made for the sake of it. As long as you believe the TD is fair, non bias and has the interest of the game at heart then you should be happy playing in a comp run by them. If you don't think the TD is up to the job or is incompetent then when you sit down, you accept what befalls you. But in my experience ALL TD's at DTD are fair, non bias and have the interest of the game at heart so would be happy playing there.

As an addendum if the caller had stated "call" he/she would be held to that action.
