Disconnection Mechanism

Note: Disconnection mechanism is applicable for Ring/Cash games only.

 

Terminology for disconnection:

To proceed further one should be aware of the poker terminology that we use in online games. We are also going to mention few more terms related to Poker Disconnection Mechanism.

 

1. Blinds

Before a game starts, two players to the left of the dealer make Blind Bets called Small Blind (SB) & Big Blind(BB). The player to the left of the dealer posts the Small Blind. The second player to the left of the dealer posts the Big Blind(BB) which is equal to the double Small Blind(SB). If player does not have enough chips to make Blind Bet, player stakes everything player has at once.

 

2. Betting Actions

(i) CALL

To contribute the minimum amount of money to the pot ,necessary to continue playing a hand.

(ii) CHECK

To pass on betting. If there's no action (bet) to you, there's nothing to call. If you don't want to bet, you can just "check."

(iii) FOLD

To give up by placing your cards face down on the table, losing whatever you have bet so far. You only fold when you think your hand is too weak to compete against the other players.

(iv) RAISE

To wager more than the minimum required to call, forcing other players to put in more money as well.

(v) BET

Players may bet if no other players have bet during the current round. Once a bet has been made, other players must ‘call’ by matching the amount bet, in order to remain in the hand.

 

3. Turn Time

In online poker, Player gets a fixed duration of time window to take any betting action when his/her turn comes to play poker. That time duration is known as Turn Timer.

 

4. Time Bank

In online poker, the time bank is an additional amount of time given to all players to decide whether to check, bet, or fold when faced with a difficult decision.

 

5. Pot

The pot in poker refers to the sum of money that players wager during a single hand or game, according to the betting rules of the variant being played. At the conclusion of a hand, either by all but one player folding, or by showdown, the pot is won or shared by the player or players holding the winning cards. Sometimes a pot can be split between many players. There are three types of Pots - Total Pot, Main Pot & Side Pot.

 

Total Pot: Total pot is the pot having all the blinds, bets etc.

Main Pot: The main pot in a hand is the pot for which all active players compete.

Side Pot: A side pot is necessary when one or more players are all-in with different amount of chips with minimum three players are active in that hand. A player can only win an amount of chips equal to their starting stack from any other player. All of the chips that can be won by the player with the lowest starting stack make up the main pot. Chips bet by other players are put into one or more side pots. It is possible that the side pots are bigger than the main pot.   

 

Examples:

- Three players are all-in and they have 300, 500 and 800 respectively. A main pot of 900 (3 x 300) will be created with 300 from everyone and a side pot of 400 (2 x 200) will be created between the other players who have more chips than the lowest stack.

- Four players have 300, 500, 900 and 1,000. A main pot of 1,200 (4 x 300), one side pot of 600 (3 x 200) and one side pot of 800 (2 x 400) will be created.

 

6. Disconnection Time/Grace Time

Disconnection time is the time that we provide to the user when they are facing network issues during their own turn. Disconnection timer is dependent upon the various scenarios that we will discuss later in this document. Disconnection time is also known as Grace Time. We can use it interchangeably but throughout this document we would use the term “Disconnection Time”.

 

7. Buffer time/System Time

Buffer time is also known as the System Time.Duration of Buffer time is 3 seconds.

 

(I) Disconnection Mechanism without Time Bank

If a player gets disconnected during the turn time and doesn’t connect until the Turn time ends. Following condition will be verified and action will be taken accordingly.

(i) If check option is available then check action will be taken at the end of Turn Time & game will proceed accordingly. There wouldn’t be any need of Disconnection Timer to provide to the player.

 

(ii) If check option is not available (In case opponent player has raised/bet) then there are further two more conditions to follow:-

 A) If a player’s money is not included in the Main Pot(pot in the table) then Fold action will be taken at the end of Turn Timer.

 B) Player’s money is included in the Main Pot(pot in the table)then following calculation will take place to provide the disconnection timer:

    • 15 seconds if the Main pot is less than 5xX (X denotes the BB)

    • 25 seconds if the Main pot is equals to or greater then 5xX (X denotes the BB)

 NOTE: The amount of time awarded will depend on the Main pot + side pot (if created).

Disconnection-Mechanism

(iii) At the end of disconnection timer, an action will get performed depending upon the following cases.:-

A) Either All In protection will get occurred. (If enabled)

Calculation of All In Protection will be on the basis of below mentioned criteria:-       

Main Pot Amount (including Bet Amount) <= 20xX (X denotes the BB)

B) Fold action will get performed if All In Protection is in Disabled state.

 

C) Fold action will get performed if All In Protection is enabled but Main Pot Amount is greater than equal to 20 times of Big Blind.   

Main Pot Amount (including Bet Amount) >= 20xX (X denotes the BB)
Disconnection-Mechanism

 

(II) Disconnection Mechanism with Time Bank

Time bank is provided to the player for the duration of xx seconds and it gets refreshed after the defined Turns count. For eg: Admin has given 30 seconds for the time bank and it will refresh after 2 turns. If a player has used the entire 30 seconds at the end of first turn then there would be no more time bank for the next turn until the completion of 2 turns. Also, if he has used first 15 seconds at the end of 1 turn then in next turn he will get the remaining time bank which is of 15 seconds. And it will get refresh after the completion of 2 turns.

We are going to discuss 2 scenarios for the disconnected player along with the time bank feature.

 

(i) Disconnected for the entire turn

If a player gets disconnected during the turn time and doesn’t connects until the current turn ends, then following condition will be verified and action will be taken accordingly.

In this case, the process of “Disconnection Mechanism without Time Bank” will get followed and there wouldn’t be any need to provide the Time Bank.

 

(ii) Disconnects during Time Bank Timer

If a player gets disconnected during the Time Bank Timer and doesn’t connect until the Turn ends. Following condition will be verified and betting action will be taken accordingly.

In this case, the process of “Disconnection Mechanism without Time Bank” will get followed. The only difference is Check action (if available) will be taken at the end of Time Bank Timer and game will proceed accordingly.

 

(III) Reconnection Mechanism without Time Bank.

We are going to discuss 3 scenarios for the player who reconnects during the turn timer/Disconnection timer.

 

(i) Reconnects during the Disconnection Timer (Ist Time)

If a player reconnects during the disconnection timer for the very first time (With respect to turn) then additional time would be provided to him to take betting action of Fold/Bet/Raise, on the basis of below two conditions.

 

a)  If disconnection timer duration is less than 15 seconds

If a player reconnects during the window of 15 seconds of disconnection timer then additional time of 15 seconds will be provided to him that means disconnection timer will get set back to 15 seconds.

Disconnection time <= 15 seconds = Reset the Disconnection Timer to 15 seconds.

 

b)  If disconnection timer duration is more than 15 seconds.

If a player reconnects during the disconnection timer of 25 seconds, then there wouldn’t be any need to reset the timer. But in case, if he joins in between the duration of 1 to 15 seconds then case ‘a’ follows. (Discussed already)

Disconnection time >= 15 seconds = Disconnection timer wouldn’t get reset (reconnects on 17th second)

 

(ii) Reconnects during the Disconnection Timer (IInd Time)

If a player reconnects during the disconnection timer for the second time (With respect to turn) then disconnection timer would remain same and no additional time will be allowed to the player. That means disconnection timer would not get reset back to 15 seconds.

Disconnection-Mechanism

(iii) Reconnects during the Turn Timer

If a player reconnects during the Turn Timer then in that case additional time would be provided on the basis of below conditions:-

 

a) Either Check allowed or Money is not involved in the pot

If a player reconnects during the turn timer and CHECK action is allowed or if money is not involved i.e., Player hasn’t bet any amount yet or his money is not involved in the Main Pot/Side Pot, then minimum 15 seconds of additional time will be given to the player to take the call. Let’s say if a player reconnects at the 5th second and check option is allowed then only 15 seconds would be provided.

 

b) Check is not allowed (In case opponent player has raised/bet)

If a player reconnects during the turn timer and CHECK action is not allowed to take or his money is involved in the Main/Side pot then minimum 25 seconds of additional time on the top of remaining time of Turn time will be given to the player on the basis of below calculation:-

 

• 15 seconds if the Main pot is less than 5xX (X denotes the BB)

• 25 seconds if the Main pot is equals to or greater then 5xX (X denotes the BB)

 

NOTE:- Additional time cannot exceed the Turn Time duration. For eg.

Turn Timer duration: 30 seconds

Reconnect at: 10th second

Additional time: 25 seconds

Total time: 10+25= 35 seconds

Provided time: 30 seconds

Disconnection-Mechanism

(IV) Reconnection Mechanism with Time Bank

We are going to discussed 3 scenarios for reconnection along with Timebank feature.

 

(i) Reconnects during the Turn Time

If a player gets reconnects during the Turn Time, then time bank will not be provided and he/she can continue the game. In this case, the process of “(III) Reconnection Mechanism without Time Bank (iii)” will get followed and there wouldn’t be any need to provide the time bank.

 

(ii) Reconnects during the Disconnection Timer

a) If a player gets disconnected during the Turn Time and reconnects during the Disconnection Time then he can continue the game by taking any betting action of Fold, Raise and Call.

b) If a player gets disconnected during the Turn Time and reconnects during the Disconnection Time but unfortunately if he misses his turn then auto action will be performed as per the process “Disconnection Mechanism without Time Bank (iii)”

 

Disconnection-Mechanism

(iii) Reconnects during the Time Bank

If a player reconnects during the Time Bank duration then action will be taken on the below mentioned scenarios:-

 

a) Remaining Time Bank:

If a player reconnects during the time bank window then no additional time would be provided and action will be taken by player in the same remaining duration.

 

b) No Time Bank:

If a player reconnects during the time bank and there isn’t any time bank left then auto action will be performed on the basis of “Disconnection Mechanism without Time Bank (iii)”

 

(v) Points to remember

By now we have covered all the cases of Disconnection/Reconnection Mechanism. But there are few things left that we are supposed to be aware of before we play Poker on ADDA52 Platform. Below are few points that we need to consider:

1. This document is applicable for Ring games only.

2. If a player is disconnected then he wouldn’t be considered/involved for next game. This condition doesn’t apply to SNG/MTT

3. Player would have to leave the seat if he remains disconnected for continuous 3 minutes. This condition follows in case player is not the part of game.

NOTE: Time duration for SNG= 5 minutes (if SNG hasn’t been started i.e, game hasn’t stated yet.)

4. If a player joins room (Take/Doesn’t take seat) and gets disconnected and he logins after 7 minutes then previously joined room should not be opened automatically and table tab should not be displayed(i.e. neither room should pop up nor tab should be displayed at bottom). 7 minutes starts as soon as disconnection detects on the capsule (From server end) and disconnect status appears on users capsule.

5. In case of SNG/MTT, if a player is already disconnected then the action (Check/Fold) will be taken automatically after the duration of 1 second based on the situation unlike Ring games.

6. In case of Crazy Pineapple, if a player get disconnected then in that case 2 cases will be followed:-

a) If a player has already chosen the card to discard before the discard timer starts and then gets disconnected during the discard timer then already chosen card by him will be discarded.

b) If a player gets disconnected during the discard timer then rightmost card among the 3 cards will get discarded automatically. 

7. As already discussed, All-in Protection is not enabled yet therefore in every scenario if check action is not allowed to take then only FOLD action will get performed in case of disconnection. (Just to make it more simpler).
