Please keep in mind that this is a headsup tournament. Here is the PokerStars Heads Up format ...


HEADS-UP TOURNAMENTS

Another form of a shootout tournament is a Heads-Up tournament, also called a 1-on-1 tournament. This is a tournament where players are matched in pairs, and play a ‘bracket’ tournament until there is only one player left.  Just as in other shootout tournaments late registration is not allowed in Heads-Up tournaments.

There may not always be a number divisible by the power of two (2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64) registered for a particular Heads-Up tournament, which is necessary to fill a heads-up bracket.  When this happens, not all players will be able to play the first round – they will receive ‘byes’.

For example, if 10 players enter a Heads-Up tournament, there would be more than 8 but fewer than 16 players. In order to play the tournament out properly, the tournament will first need to be brought down to 8 players. In order to get the number down from 10 to 8 players, 4 players will play (thus eliminating two) and 6 players will get a ‘bye’ and are automatically in the quarter-finals.

We offer Heads-Up tournaments with byes and without byes.  This is clearly marked if you click the ‘Tournament Info’ button in the tournament lobby. If a tournament does not allow ‘byes’, the last players to register may have their buy-ins returned in order to get the event to an ‘even’ starting total of players. In the above example (with 10 players entered) the last two players to register would not get to play, as 8 is the lower number to fill a bracket.

Many Heads-Up tournaments have a ‘Show Bracket’ button in the lobby where you can see a visual representation of how the matches will play out.

Couple problems already ...

1. Sitting out the first round is a drag

2. There is a table with two "Sitting out" players. Neither player ever bets. The game will never end until the blinds get so huge that one player is all-in. That should only take about four hours! I have alrerady emailed PokerStars support.

Good luck, nutn

I think that PokerStars support just killed the table with two players sitting out.

Looks like this will be the first and last 1v1 tournament. Sitting out the first round sucks. Waiting for other players to finish their game sucks.

Good luck, nutn

Thank you for your email regarding PokerStars Home Games.

Unfortunately we are unable to grant your request. Once a tournament has started, there is no way to manually 'kill' a table, even if players are sitting out.

Please note that after a number of hands where all players are sitting out, however, the largest stack will win automatically. After reviewing the table you mentioned, this seems to have happened already. Please refer to our Tournament Rules:

"In Shootout and Heads-Up events, if all players at a table are disconnected and / or sitting out for a large number of hands (typically 250 hands or more in real money tournaments), the match will end and the player with the most chips will advance to the next round. "

http://www.pokerstars.com/poker/tournaments/rules/

Please let us know if we can assist you further. We wish you the best of luck in your Home Games.

Regards,

PokerStars Support Team

Thanks for having this!  If the winner will email me - Mike@FlamingFrogPoker.com - I will get the gift certificate sent right out.

I would like to suggest that we do much quicker structures in the future.  I understand that people want to get a little play but a 10PM start time makes it real tough on those of us that get up at 5AM.  Plus I really enjoy the turbo structure!

I agree...I think another HU would work with a 5min structure...that would be plenty of time.

Thanks to Flaming Frog for the chance at the gift certificate.  It was a good time (despite the whiners).

I got pwn3d in the finals....had a pretty good chip lead (>3:1) and donked it away in no time.  lolz
