  • Sit Outs

    Hi all !!! I don't know if this issue has been discussed before but I find that sit outs alter the game to a certain extent. People register in the tourney and don't play a single hand others accumulate a decent stack and then sitout for the rest of the tourney to finish in the pôints and sometimes in the money. I know because I tried it and made 9.55 pts. So I suggest that sitouts be knocked out of the tourney after 10 minutes of innacivity; this would be showing respect for the grinders like myself and others who play for the duration of the tourneys. Thank you The Habumbup Feedback is appreciated

    as soon as the throttles kick in..... they'll lose pts, not gain them.

    you also can sitout as long as you want in live tournies too.

      So what if I want to play but just show up late? Sometimes I'll register for the late night PSO, but I don't get home until 50 minutes in. I figure that the 300-500 chips I lose (highly variable and dependent on your tables) aren't always too much to sacrifice in effort to gain some points. And until that time, I'm dead money! Free for anyone to attack.

      The old full proof PSO cashing strategy was to build a stack of about 7k and sit out. This was enough to make the money consistently. I used to enter PSOs an hour before I had to leave for work, build a 9k stack, sit, and come home to find my account balance had increased by 2 cents. Now you need more to make the 10% ITM especially with so many players stalling. Still, sitting out hurts no one, especially that deep, except the sitter. By sitting you miss out on opportunities to grow your stack, but at the same time have no risk of missing the cash.

        Ok, how many other ppl besides me think that building a 7-9k stack is not that easy? 99% of games I play I'm lucky to double up. The other 1% I get lucky and get a big stack.

          it can be easy sometimes if you play OSM bingo and get lucky a couple hands in a row.

              I had 16k chips in the last pso I played. She Who Must Be Obeyed 'asked' me to watch a film with the family. Cool by me. I sat out and enjoyed reading my congratulatory email a couple of hours later.
