Bounty Payout when 2 winners have the same hand

Post by setspike »

Hi Kent,

Ran into a situation I have never seen before. Had a bounty tournament with 3 people all-in. Two of the three people had the exact same poker hand at showdown, while the one loser was knocked out. However only one person claimed the bounty.

The person who claimed the bounty was in the SB while the other person was UTG+1.

Can you please let me know if this is correct behavior for the server? I would think the bounty should have been split.

Thanks.

On a split pot, the bounty goes to the player in the earliest position.
