Tourhment Play "Sitting Out"

Postby gomer » Sun Aug 03, 2008 9:50 am

When you are playing in a tournament you should not be able to sit out during the game and come back in later. It allows you to sit out while others are playing and come back in later. It seems that because you still have money it lets you play. It shouldn't be that way. In normal online tournaments if you leave or sit out you can not continue to play. Sevral users brougth it up to my attention.

Thanks

Sitting out is just the equivalent of folding every hand, which you have the right to do. You already paid the entry fee and can therefore play those hands (or not play them) in any way you want.

You are 100% wrong about that. Tournament sitters keep playing until they are blinded out. In every online site I know of. And in live tournaments, including the WSOP. It's only ring games were sitters are removed, because they don't get cards and don't pay blinds.
