Asian million glitch

i just entered the asian million tournament, but there were some issues with my internet which prevented me from entering. after about 10 minutes it was fixed and i wanted to enter the tourney, but i saw my chips already got to zero, so i checked my last hand just to be sure. but the thing is i still had 2940 chips left (start is 3000) so except for my few BB’s i lost i should be able to continue the tourney, but instead i just got kicked out withou any reason. could someone please fix this as it is a waste for the chips and for the tournament.

It also took Me 5+ minutes to get through but still had chips. Might be the Strange chat on the sign-up page.

@yiazmat I don’t think it’s a glitch. I think you just timed out due to inactivity for longer than 10 minutes. You can double check with support, but I am sure that if a registered player doesn’t join and remains inactive for 10 minutes or longer, they get timed out and knocked out of the tourney.

imo 10 minutes is quite quick, it’s even too short to fix a minor problem (like i had yesterday), hopefully it gets changed soon.
but at least i know now. ty for the information.

Interesting. I thought you only got bumped from a tournament if you were inactive for the first three blinds levels. Is that something they’ve changed?

I’m not 100% sure. You could be right. The 10 minutes time could just happen to be the time it takes for the first blind levels in most tourneys. It’s just that every time I “timed out” it was after about 10 minutes of inactivity (from the beginning of the tourney of course). If you have played at least 1 hand, then you get disconnected or check the Away box, you don’t get time out for some reason :thinking:

If you don’t play a hand for the first 3 levels you forfeit your chips and get booted. Usually the blinds are 6 minutes so after 18 minutes from the start of the tournament you have not taken your seat you are dumped.


ty 4 the information all of you,

obviously i’m not sure which of the reasons is the right one either. but there are a few things i can clear up:

  • first of all i can tell you that it was about 10 minutes (not exactly 10 minutes, but i’m quite sure it wasn’t 18).
  • when i checked my last hand after i got kicked out, it showed me my stack was 2940, and the strting stack is 3000. so logically it was probably still the first blind level (10/20), or maybe the second (15/30). meaning it was quite quickly i got out and almost impossible to reached the third level (even more so to finish the 3rd level).
  • it is true however i haven’t got to play a single hand, i got into the tournament but didn’t even make to see the first hand as my internet probably got lost just before that (table kept reconnecting without result and i saw my internet was out).

This particular issue isn’t a glitch, though we do want to improve the logic here. What happens is that if you haven’t taken a seat by the end of the third blind level of a tournament, you’re considered a no-show. Even if you sneak in and respond to a single hand, if it ends up being at that cut off, you’re removed from the tourney.

This particular tournament started at 9am ET, you registered at 9:17, and the blind levels were 10 minutes each, so you were removed at 9:30.

In the meantime, since you were having trouble connecting, I went ahead and refunded your buy-in as a courtesy.


thanks a lot for the explanation and the refund @fizzymint .

haven’t thought about the late reg but i guess it makes a lot of sense now.

my apologies for the trouble with my pc.
