When i first started playing on pokerstars i messed around with different games and came accross one i was pretty good at, and that was the 4 man heads up sitngo's. For some reason i gave it up (Not sure why... maybe i had a few bad losses) but today i came back to them, i only now noticed that the buy-in went from i think $2.20 to $3.50 and that there aren't any $1.50 4man ones.... at least i don't think there are. Anyways i was playing one today and i think it was about the 3rd hand against my 2nd opponent and he disconnected. Wasn't a big surprise, happens pretty often. But as i remember before the player i think recieved about 60 secs to act and if he timed out he would be recognized as sitting out. ( Then you can take his chips without doing anything. I love it when that happens! I'm so bad , lol) But today my opponent timed out and recieved 120secs to act, it ran out. Then recieved 60secs, and then 30secs.And also every turn he had to run out his 10secs and wasn't put as sitting out, and believe me taking 10 and 20 chips every turn while waiting 10secs bugged me a little. I know that it was probably a bit unfair before but i think thats a bit much, maybe i'm wrong but i think a minute or two is enough to give them, i mean it's not pokerstars fault that the player disconnected. I don't mean to sound mean or anything its just how i see it.

That usually only happens when the players are on the Final Table.

Or in this case the FINAL Heads Up.
