Since we are a play money site, our priority is to ensure the best possible experience for all of our players, which sometimes means doing things slightly differently than they would be at a live poker tournament.
Given this, we have implemented a new No Show Policy as of May 11, 2015.
Players that have not taken their seat and played a hand by the END of the third blind level of a tournament, will be removed from the tournament and their buy-in forfeited. Blind levels can vary from tournament to tournament, but a typical blind level is 6 minutes, in which case a no show would be removed after 18 minutes of inactivity.
This rule applies to all tournaments, both Multi-Table and Sit & Go's.
