Hieronder de chat uit het $1K event:
FTPDoug (Director): Hi there. We will have to cancel the tournament in 3 minutes if it’s not over by then. When that happens, it will payout according to rule #31 at Online Poker at Full Tilt Poker – Tournaments: Tournament Rules
THE UTE: wow
THE UTE: told u
holdplz: Are you there
FTPDoug (Director): I am, yes.
holdplz: talk to me please ?
holdplz: how can you possibly do that
FTPDoug (Director): We have to come down for maintenance.
holdplz: we’re playing for 225k
THE UTE: we aren’t aloud to finish play?
holdplz: and you’re going to make us stop
holdplz: this simply cannot be
THE UTE: is this convo done in a couple min plz
holdplz: plz pause the tournament
THE UTE: this is insane, what do u guys want to do?
holdplz: do something
FTPDoug (Director): I can probably hold it for a couple of minutes if you’d like to work on a deal that isn’t a chip chop, but that’s probably the best I can do.
holdplz: this is outrageous
THE UTE: wow, seems insane
Vivek Rajkumar (Observer): doug
Vivek Rajkumar (Observer): how is remaining prizepool divvied up
Vivek Rajkumar (Observer): if tourney is cancelled
holdplz: This just cannot possibly be. You cannot run multi entry 1k’s and have a server restart that stops play 3 handed
FTPDoug (Director): There’s one other possibility I’m looking at.
FTPDoug (Director): If you’d like to come back in an hour, we can play it out.
Vivek Rajkumar (Observer): can you pause the tournament for 50 mins while maintenance is going on
Vivek Rajkumar (Observer): to finish up?
holdplz: FTP should give us like 5k each for this absurdity
holdplz: this is LUDA
FTPDoug (Director): Yeah, if all three of you want to do that we can do it.
holdplz: pause for 50 mins
THE UTE: pause it now.. so we can talk
FTPDoug (Director): It’s paused at the end of the hand.
THE UTE: alright so how is remaining prizepool divided up
THE UTE: click deal button
FTPDoug (Director): It’s a chip chop if it gets cancelled. Or we can pause it and the three of you can play it out in an hour.
holdplz: i think we’re pausing and resuming later ?
Markus OwnH: no way sry guys
THE UTE: id like to see what chop numbers are
Markus OwnH: was yesterday in berlin(EPT) and had only 3 hours of sleeping
holdplz: this is so ludicrous
holdplz: well markus
holdplz: it’s a MET 1k
holdplz: dont play it if you cant stay awake
holdplz: I have 0 desire to chop
holdplz: I should not be forced to.
THE UTE: lol, what are the chop numbers tho?
holdplz: Not enough
THE UTE: holdplz, $&@$ is shutting down. u dont call the rules
holdplz: i cant just be forced into a chop
THE UTE: seems like it
THE UTE: lol
Markus OwnH: gg
THE UTE: we need to figure something out before its to late
holdplz: i refuse, FTP u cant just shut it down when we’re playing for 100k
FTPDoug (Director): We do have to shut it down, I’m sorry about that.
Markus OwnH: i dont want to play along in 50 minutes
Markus OwnH: just deal according to tournament rules
holdplz: take a nap markus
holdplz: set an alarm
Markus OwnH: [12:04:37] flooo_o_o: doug just make the deal
THE UTE: ftp
holdplz: This can’t be real
THE UTE: if this shuts down. is it resuming or chip chop?
Markus OwnH: game over^^
THE UTE: id like to know how much im getting if chip chop
holdplz: And the deal window wont come up so i cant even see numbers
holdplz: I refuse to accept ICM or chip chop or any numbers that that computer gives
THE UTE: im going to freak if this shuts down and have no idea whats up
FTPDoug (Director): All three have the deal checked?
THE UTE: yes we do
holdplz: the window wont even pop up
THE UTE: 3/3
holdplz: we all have it checked
holdplz: there is no window
FTPDoug (Director): I’m going to unpause to show the numbers if all three of you have the deal button checked.
THE UTE: yes correct
holdplz: 1000 million percent
holdplz: not taking ICM
FTPDoug (Director): So with a cancel it would be “Chip Ratio”
THE UTE: Holdplz, seems we all have to agree on something
holdplz: Why cant we just resume in 45 minutes ?
Markus OwnH: no resume, game over
THE UTE: bc for one, Markus does not want to
holdplz: ok markus then give me 4k
THE UTE: and therefor server will shut down and get chip ratio money
holdplz: a tournament can finish how it’s supposed to
FTPDoug (Director): Sorry, I’m going to have to give a last call here. Either agree on a deal here within 2 minutes or I need to cancel the tournament so the maintenance can start. Very sorry about this.
Markus OwnH: finish it now according to tournament rules
holdplz: Doug how can i possibly be forced into doing this
THE UTE: seems there is a deal forced in place if we dont agree
holdplz: How can you have a 6 am server restart with a MET 1k ? How can I not just force them to resume in 45 minutes ?
THE UTE: it is just stupid tho
holdplz: If ew have the ability to finish the tournament why don’t we
FTPDoug (Director): We can discuss via email, but I do have to cancel the tournament now.
