Big Blind Tournaments
« on: February 11, 2020, 06:01:23 PM »
 Has anyone ever done a Tournament using a Big Blind Format. I having a problem looking for a answer here is a example.

     We started with 10 players we are now down to 5 players. The small blinds are $200 and the big blind is $400 and the big blind ante is $800 which is the ante for the whole table. Everyone calls the big blind except chair 7 who only has $100 left and goes all in. So that is 4 players $400 and 1 Player at $100 plus the big blind ante which was $800 for a total of $2500. So the all in player would get $500 from the blinds and $500 from the big blind ante for a total of $1000 if he wins, or would he get $500 from the blinds and all the big blind ante $800 for a total of $1300 since everyone has been putting in the big blind ante for the table as the game moves on.

Thanks Vernon

The all in player is eligible for the ante, plus $100 x 5 players, so $1,300. There is a $300 x 4 players side pot of $1,200, which the all in player is NOT eligible for.
