All the money plays. Besides the reasons others have mentioned; how sure are you he didn't win any pots? I have seen many times a player was "sure" of what happened and their memory turned out to be faulty.

Re: Player rebuys for more than table max then wins all-in

I have literally never seen the extra 100 not play. "Max buy in", morality and ethics aside, is one of those rules that's kind of loosely enforced. Unless it's utterly egregious like hiding a 1/5k chip on a 500 max buy in table, I've never seen the extra not ruled in play.

You just have to ask how much people are playing.

Fine if you wish to punish for buying in for too much, do so. I never said yo7 canít though I donít see the value of doing so. But the punishment is not or should not be the money donít play. Hand him a rack after the hand is over. But the money plays, at least this hand.

oddly the one few times I've seen this situation was at Horseshoe Hammond and the extra cash did not play...this was during a WSOPc event a couple of years ago and their were two 10-10 (I think it's horseshoe hammond that has different denominations between higher NLH and PLO) tables going, commotion on the main table as a Detroit reg in town has just lost a big pot all-in. His complaint was that the other player in the hand had been stacked the hand before and rebought 100 over the max, and he wanted the entire hand nullified (lol), he literally stopped the game until a Indiana gaming official came and made a ruling (the ruling was the extra money over the buy-in limit didn't play but obviously the hand was valid), same guy earlier tried to angle me for 3 bucks lol we get AIPF with AK v QQ and he waits until he scoops and then asks the dealer if my 3 singles play...they don't fwiw

Re: Player rebuys for more than table max then wins all-in

Dealers should be stronger about buy-in maxs at the lower stakes but that is usually not the case. Players also IMO have pretty asymmetrical views on the issue where going south between hands is verboten but going north between hands is look the other way accepted (obviously either during the hand is insta-ban cheating).
Personally, I generally let people go north and am willing to accept the higher loss if stacked, but it would serve as a break on regs going north if their was a chance of them getting free-rolled the extra dollars...

For players I don't like, I will have the dealers enforce the caps. Their is nothing like the look a stuck reg gives you when you make him take dollars off the table...)

Wow. Yeah, maybe max buy in will get enforced more. With just an episode or two like that, or even just an occasional complaint, floors will take it much more seriously.

Re: Player rebuys for more than table max then wins all-in

Another issue that has popped up is a Player 'adjusting' their stack when changing tables. I've seen this in both directions.

It's hard to expect a Floor to stand over a guy and rack him up for the push to a main game, or even just a table change, but it is an open door that some have chosen to walk through.

One guy took a $500 chip off his stack and then when the guy he won it from got the push he immediately asked where 'his' chip was ... oops, the guy was asked to rack up and leave. GL

Have seen house rules that force to go south down to the max of the new table. Seen others that all chips stay in play. Even seen a few where it was your choice but nothing in between. That third is the real, head scratcher.

Re: Player rebuys for more than table max then wins all-in

if they make you move tables then you are a new player to that table and should only be allowed the max buy in.
the whole thing is stupid as they put max buyins on tables for two reasons.

1st. was to possibly keep winners from leaving when someone matched them and they were afraid they could lose it all in one hand.

2nd. the real reason was the casino kept the pots smaller and less players went broke quickly so they got the money turned more times and increased the rake and made it that much harder for a good player to win enough to make it worth while playing.
