It may be necessary to withhold player winnings until the completion of game play reviews.
Violation of this rule may result in penalties including a warning, disqualification from the tournament with partial or full forfeiture of winnings , and barring from our platform. Examples of permissible exceptions that we give below are intended to describe examples of unplanned but serious events which are beyond your control.
In the event of a server crash, the hands in progress at every table will be restored by rolling back those hands. Each player's chip count will be reset to the amount at the beginning of the hand. In special circumstances, when a tournament needs to be cancelled because of a crash or some other reason, players will be compensated according to the tournament cancellation policy see below.
Doing so may result in the revocation of all awarded Leader Board points for the deal-making players in the tournament. A player who eliminates such an opponent wins the cash bounty. A bounty is placed on every entrant. You win a cash prize for each opponent you eliminate. There are also Progressive Knockouts, where your bonus increases as you eliminate players.
A bounty is placed on every member of Team PokerStars Pro who enters the tournament. This is because a player cannot be eliminated by a low hand only. Odd cents will be awarded in turn to the players in the earliest positions.
If a tournament advertises a bounty on a particular player, but that player does not register for the tournament, no bounty will be paid for that player. Players may not make any agreement amongst themselves to eliminate a particular player in order to claim their bounty award.
Such agreements are considered collusion, and are grounds for disqualification from the tournament or other penalties. For more information, see rules 6. If we have to cancel a tournament for any reason, we make a concerted effort to compensate players in the fairest and most equitable way possible. There are three different possible compensation methods, depending on the exact circumstances and timing of the cancellation.
Which method is applied is the sole discretion of the tournament Management. In this case, we are "rolling back" the tournament as if it never happened - if you were registered for the tournament, you get your buy-in and fees including rebuys, add-ons, and knockout entry if any refunded. Also, the buy-in is refunded in exactly the same format with which you bought in. Roll Forward No Players in the Money: If a tournament is cancelled and we do a "roll forward" before the players are in the money, we refund each remaining player his tournament fee and knockout bounty if appropriate , and then divide up the prize pool based on the following formula: Roll Forward Players are in the Money: When a tournament is cancelled, and players have already reached the money, we refund each remaining player his tournament fee and knockout bounty if appropriate , and then divide up the prize pool based on the following formula: Particularly if one player stays connected while the other player does not, the first player can effectively win the tournament while the second player is disconnected.
If a tournament with a guaranteed prize pool is cancelled, we will refund only the total buy-ins, not the guaranteed amount. If a tournament with Fixed or Team Pro bounties is cancelled, we will refund only the regular prize pool and knockout pool if applicable , not the Fixed or Team Pro bounties. Tournaments which award tickets, satellite entries, or material prizes in addition to cash will only include the cash in the refund amount.
Non-cash prizes will not be included in the roll forward or rollback equation. In a Heads-Up tourney players compete in a multi-round event against a series of opponents until they are eliminated, or defeat the last player standing. Exact details of tournament structure and prize pool can be found in the tournament lobby.

Other players will play an extra first-round match, and the tournament will play down to 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 or 64 players before progressing to the second round. No players will have byes past the first round, and all byes are randomly selected from the field of entrants.

We do not accept any responsibility for a player disconnect except in the case of a server crash. While each user is responsible for their own Internet connection, we make an effort to protect players who are disconnected during the final stages of a real money tournament, by allowing extra time to reconnect.
If a player times out during a hand, whether connected or disconnected, his or her hand will be folded if facing action, or may be checked if facing no action. There is no rule against a single player choosing to sit out; the player doing so will continue to have blinds and antes posted and cards dealt. Two or more players may not make any agreement to sit out simultaneously, whether at the same table or different tables.

Deal Making Deal making is allowed in tournaments, unless otherwise specified in the tournament lobby. If all remaining players in a tournament agree to split the prize money according to a formula of their choosing, we will accept this agreement, and alter the originally published tourney payouts to reflect the numbers agreed to in the deal.
When all remaining players have checked this box, the table will automatically pause at the end of the current hand, and our customer support team will be notified. A staff member will come to the table to ensure a smoothly arranged deal. We cannot guarantee that a staff member will arrive in a timely fashion although every effort will be made to avoid delays.
We will not participate in the deal making process, but will serve as a facilitator to ensure that everyone is in complete agreement before executing the transfers per the above conditions. The amount of money required to be left in play, if any, will usually be specified in the tournament lobby message. It is the players' responsibility to determine total agreement. In the absence of oversight at the table by our support personnel, chat records alone will not necessarily validate an agreement.
However, we may enforce a deal if it was clearly agreed to by all parties. Only players at the final table may deal for the money, and all deals must include all remaining players.
