Add chips change. Tourney surrender.

Post by rundmc »

Would love to see a change to the add chips feature. As it is now, if you are felted, and don't have the auto rebuy feature activated (which is not ideal for many players), you either have to add chips while the hand with your chips is in play and often end up with more chips than desired if you win, or wait until the hand is over and then miss at least the next hand (especially annoying if you are in the blinds because then you have to miss more than one hand and either put in extra chips or wait a round). should be an option for the admin to add in some time, like 20 seconds, to allow felted players the chance to add more chips, like there is with the rebuy option in tourneys.

Speaking of tourneys and rebuys, I would love to see a feature to allow players to surrender their chips in order to rebuy at the end of the rebuy period. You could make it an option within the menu and allow players to access themselves at any point during the rebuy period, or just give all players the option to surrender their chips and rebuy at the end of the rebuy period.

Thanks!!

That's what the Add-on option is for, a last chance rebuy with no balance threshold involved.

Thanks Kent.

Add-ons are different from rebuys however in that the latter doesn't allow our deep-pocketed players to build a higher chip stack than starting. Not everyone in our group loves the rebuy option either but at least with that, there's no advantage other than just having the ability to fire a second bullet (as opposed to being able to buy a bigger, deadlier bullet!)

I haven't played the major online sites since before Black Friday, but I believe surrendering was an option for re-buy tourneys. It definitely is in live casino tourneys that have rebuys but not addons.

+1 for surrender to allow players to surrender small stack and then do re-buy + add-on. It's one of the most requested features from my players.
