Ok, my big game is coming up in 3 days and I had a quick question about placing. So far we have 22 coming (gotten way more support than I thought it would!) and I've talked with a few people and they want to pay out 3 places. So it will be a $20 buy in, my first question is how would you break down the payouts in the tournament? When we play our smaller game we only pay out first and second and we usually just do double the buy in for 2nd and the rest to 1st. My second question is, if we have say 4 people left in the tournament and 2 people are knocked out on one hand at the end, how do you determine who would finish in 3rd and who in 4th? I've never had this situation but I know its a possibility and want to have all my bases covered. I'm familiar with the game ins and outs just not positive about rulings in certain obscure situations such as that. I really don't want anyone to be upset over a ruling on something that might be either wrong or not as confident in that decision as I should be. I thank you guys in advance, you've been a wonderful help so far with everything I've had to deal with setting things up and I'm so excited to get things going with this game. I have my stacks already counted out and setup, I even have chips set out and ready for a cash game after the main game. Its starting to really feel like I almost know what I'm doing here! The main thing is I want this to feel as organized and buttoned up as I can so people feel comfortable coming back and knowing that there won't be any shenanigans going on. I know 20 bucks is chump change for most of the people who play on here but for the guys I play with and myself 20 bucks is a decent amount to gamble with that we can feel comfortable losing but we will get a nice bit of folding money if we win. My hope is to eventually be able to pull 20-30 at least once a month.
