  • Missing player - minor madness

    First off - kudos to JamesG who handled a funny but filthy situation with grace and good humour :wink: . But ...

    School PLO8 satellite, and after much carnage it's down to me, James and Acedan. Acedan has been missing for the last hour and is blinding out. But ...

    I have about 18,500 , James 1,000 and Acedan 500. The blinds are big. Well, I'm gonna call any bet with virtually any 4 cards, James knows this and is playing as cagey as possible aiming for 2nd.

    But the missing player keeps winning halves and sometimes scooping every time he's all-in, and James loses chips.

    Eventually (after about 20 hands) the ridiculous comes to pass and the all-in missing player and me each take half the pot and James is busted vs "The Ghostly One" 8O

    With 19500 vs 500 it then takes about another 8 hands before I eventually scoop against TheGuyWhoAintThere.

    This is funny, but st00pid. What happens in b+m games when a player is long-term absent, especially when it gets short-handed?
    Do their hands play all-in ??? Even if they're at the hospital having emergency heart surgery?

    Whatever - Happy New Year folks :lol:

    I don't understand. Being beaten by a player who isn't even there sounds pretty typical for James G.

      Obviously I wasn't being cagey enough! :wink: We had fun though Rosita!!

      It was an awkward situation for both of us, but next time I get the disconnected player on MY left!! :twisted:

          James lost to a phantom!! His new name should
          be spirit-boy. But how can you believe anything
          he says after that?

          I'm betting a small percent of my bankroll that he
          is still on the roster after January 1st. And I'm
          betting he's on the first page a month after the
          rankings are reset...

            Jim, I was only teasin' you. On the other hand, I would love to take your money in a heads-up match. Monday night at 9:30 eastern time. You and me for $1,000.

            Now, if for some reason you happen to beat me, well, then the better player will have prevailed.

            Peace, Stephen

            PS. Don't go.

              to answer rosita's original question is quite simple

              if the player is not at the table to play his hand its folded by the dealer

              this should happen on-line as well

              its something pokerschool should be looking to rectify
              as other on-line poker sites have b+m rule "not present to play - hand is folded"
