Any chance of adding one of these for APT live tournaments? When a person sitting out has a substantial stack and has to leave they might just prefer to bail instead of just sitting out or dumping their chips.

Just curious

    I failed to explain what prompted this suggestion and decided to revisit it. Recently I observed a final table where a player with a substantial number of chips had to bail out leaving 4 others, 2 who were shortstacked, to fight it out while.he was, slowly, blinded down. He eventually came in 2nd which seemed a bit out of line to me. I think if there was a way to dropout he would have used it rather then sitting out. Syn

    I was on that table for awhile and would 2nd synth's request. Things would have progressed much faster if that player had the chance to bail.

    He came in 2nd?! :)

    Ok. I'll look into whether that option exists. This multiplayer software is just something we licensed, so we are limited to the options available. But if it exists, I can see the benefit of having that.
