No, it's no different than sitting in and folding every hand.

In cash games you don't pay blinds when sitting out.

I'm not sure but I think some seating scripts reserve seats at many tables, waiting for a recreational player to join, and then instantly sit in at that table. Apparently this is spoiling the game for those not using seating scripts.

Obviously for MTTs sitouts are a good thing.

you can't kick out sitouts because they have chips
they must stay till their stack is gone
and why you hate them ? just take their blinds and be happy about it
i usually see sitouts in freerolls
but other than that , no one will buy-in with their money then sit out
good luck superthight in your poker journey , hope to see you in pokerstars

There is no reason banning these players.
For one reason or another, all of us at some point have been in that place and it helped a lot
logging in and still fin ourselves in the game.
No to mention that in some games they are pretty helpful, when you take their blinds for free.

absolute/ultimate bet poker used to have the best software for this, after the first blind level, play would pause, and all sitouts would be removed from the game. (freerolls only) then the game would start again.

The reasonning of pokerstars and i suppose many others sites is that if let say you have 1 000 entrants in a tournament with a 1 500 starting so at the end there must be 1,500,000 chips at the end of the game.IMO its a fair reason. Smile Smile

Then the problem needs to be addressed by removing the multi accounts not by removing players that are sat out.

Well their loss if they are playing multi accounts they are wasting time and when they will try to withdraw they will get blocked and they will have wasted time getting some money, it would not be worth it , anyway good luck at the tables if poker site is doing something about that then it will be ok, but sometimes there are advantages especially in sng which is heads up, if somebody timed out for like 5 minutes i could get all of their chips!

if you can't beat the sitting outs then i wonder what can you beat? and what's the point in banning them- aren't we living in a democratic world where we can go from the tables whenever we want (to bring some beer, take a quick snack, piss or sh1t) and come back after doing our side business... i can't imagine pokerstars banning sh1tting players because they took too much time doing their routine...

Sit outs aren't too bad when you wind up at a table where EVERYbody is sitting out,...and you are raking it in every hand...! Big Smile Dollar

The faster you play,...the more you make...! I've actually sat at a Hubble's Freeroll on PS for about 25 minutes and turned like a 10K stack into a 65K stack...! Big Smile

If I was the only playing at the table sitting in I wouldn't be complaining.I do hate it though in a tourney where the blind levels go up quickly and the software allows a player sitting out to win the pot.If you are not there I don't think you should be able to play a hand. Smile

Poker sites should remove players who don't show up during the first 5 or 10 minutes after tournament start.

Of course it should be a freeroll only policy. If I pay I should be free to do what I feel like.

Som pokerrooms already adopted this policy and, in my humble opinion, everyone should.

Ive played 3-4 spin n gos with sitouts before n i must say it was fricken excellent Cool my last one i played one guy came to play with less then 100 chips n i had a kool 1400+..He wasnt to amused about it and blamed the software. I do agree in freerolls boot them out unless they were actively playing at the beginning then siting out.

Hi mates.
Is a problem, lets say this way, that maybe isnt a big problem because like above been said, in same tournaments is a good thing, in cash not a good thing, and in some parts of the tournaments can be helpfull other is a obstruct to play our A-game.
But this poker you have fish, sharks, good, bad, strange and predictable players, and you have to play with all of this circunstantions and things that happen.

Enjoy sun and life, keep playing safe.

If you pay an entry then I suppose the site has to let you do what you want and if you forget or have connection issues then you deserve the chance to play.
What I don't like is freerolls with only a very short registration period,say 15 minutes,within minutes there are a couple of thousand entries but then minutes later when the game starts half the field are missing.......wonder why that is Smile
