      hi,
      i'm new to just about everything in poker, below is an extract from the Submit A Bug form to FTP earlier today, any thoughts? cheers

      Hi,
      We were 3-handed in the SNG below and as soon as the 3rd placed player was eliminated, my opponent started folding instantaneously.
      I only noticed something was wrong after a few hands. I was playing as per normal up to then.
      I thought it might be a silly trap on his part, but the folding was too quick.
      After a few more hands of "testing" him, I proceeded to go all-in every single hand and eventually ran his chips down to nil.
      It definitely seemed very strange and I suspect it was a FTP software glitch.

      Kind Regards
      Robert Adams

      Couldn't it just be that your opponent lost his/her connection? Besides, if it was a software problem, your opponent will surely report it anyway. To be honest, I'd just take the money and run if I were you.

      Hi Robert,

      I wouldn't call it a bug, more just you getting lucky :D . Villian will either have timed out or been disconnected and therefore he folds each hand as you described. When I used to play SnG's I noticed it quite often in the micros, it is something you should watch out for even in the early rounds as you can pick up extra blinds early on.

      Also you said you were open pushing each hand to run down villian stack, I would advise against this and just min raise, it does exactly the same but if villian suddenly reconnects you don't have all your chips in the middle with air!

      Check the 'last hand' button, it will tell you whether the player is sitting out or not.

      This is another annoying thing about Full Tilt...

      A) It should tell you if he's not there by flagging his username with 'Sitting Out', if you were playing live and the player wasn't there you'd know so I don't see why online players should be getting away with it, it does this on PokerStars.

      B) When the player is blinded down and is automatically all in on the blind/ante then their hand should be considered dead and mucked, just like on PokerStars AND in live play, it's ridiculous when some sit out triples up with AA when they're not even there.

      I love it when a blinded out guy cracks my AA with smth like 74o :D Because I only lose MAX 1 BB, and the next 4 times I have AA are "safe" :f_biggrin:

      At least in the Casino in Gibraltar your hand is not dead if you are on sit-out. So you can double and triple up again. In live poker there are no rules, which apply to every casino so it can be different for each one.

      Cheers,

      Not every casino is using these rules.

      See for example

      SECTION 4. BUTTON AND BLIND USE
      3. In heads-up play with two blinds, the small blind is on the button.


      Even online casinos are having differences here. On PartyPoker the Big blind is on the button.

      Rules depend on the house rules of each casino. They are all quite similar, but sometimes they have small differences.

      Cheers,
      Hannes
