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.

"This is funny, but st00pid. What happens in b+m games when a player is long-term absent, especially when it gets short-handed? "

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"
