when I play tournaments in online poker, usually a few people at the table are in sitout ... but when some people play against people who are in sitout, it seems to me that they don’t see this .... because any raise gives them a win but they persistently check and lose ... maybe for some players it’s not visible that they are playing against people who are in sitout or is it just inattention?

it’s very difficult not to see that your opponent is in sit out ... it is very clearly shown in any poker room ... If a person is in sit out it is displayed on the gaming table .... probably when you play poker you need to look not only at of your card but also on how your opponent acts .. or is it a very bad player

Or maybe they play a lot of tables, and don't pay atention (for a few minutes).

Plenty of players have many open tables when they play and in this situation they do not notice this thing. They hunt freerolls in several rooms and it is difficult for them to concentrate. Do not worry about this because i am disappointed that the table is moving too fast with these sit out players but this is it.

Of course, I understand that a person who plays in the tournament may be busy with some other things ... maybe he is playing somewhere else or is engaged in something else and as a result is distracted and does not clearly see the possibility of winning ... but this obviously and displayed on the gaming table .... Okay, let this remain a mystery

There is a possibility to find out this. Ask in chat what is going on and see what these players will say. I don't think many will answer but some will explain. Have you thought about the fact that many are playing on the phone and it's much harder to see that. Anyway, i'm not interested in that because many times i like sit out players.

It may also be the device and or os and or game room.

I seem to recall a few years ago when playing at party on my android tablet, you could not distinguish between players and sitters. They were not identified as sitting out.

this is how it seems to me the most rational explanation of the situation in which I could not find the logic .... If you do not see the player’s opponent’s state, then you can play illogically .... Of course, if you see that if the player is out of the game it’s logical to make a rate increase ..... But if you don’t see this, everything changes

You have to get used to it because freroll games are not very importance and many players register but do not play. That's not fair, but some people are not thinking. It's difficult to play but you can't do anything. People are trying to win something without playing. Aww crap!

I have seen it many times too.
Two things are happening here. Either they are new players, not knowing what is
going on, or they are not paying much attention to the game, as they should Smile
maybe due to multi tabling.
I have made this mistake also a number of times Smile cause i do not pay attention.
Drives me mad every time....

Yeah, a lot of people just do not pay attention or are multi tabling and don't care about stealing blinds.

Some people don't seems to understand how important it is to win small pots not just big ones. They do pile up and give you extra bulllets to fire and grow your stack more later. Every pot matters!!

Good luck in your tournaments guys!

Pajalnik. How you doing? I too notice this especially at new sites or maybe new players. It is very frustrating as it allows sit out players to win pots that they should not be winning and have no right to be entering in the first place. I like the approach at stars where sit out players just lose their money and can’t win a hand if they sit out. I think it’s stars. I’m sure it’s stars. I scream at the screen......just call....they are not there! LOL

Pajalnick, today you have the chance to play a few games again in 888 level. I hope you will have some free time and maybe we will meet at the tables. We have met only rarely in the last 5 years because you play more in other places. Good luck with your games.

Nobody thinks about the easier explanation which would be that most of these players are just bots waiting to be activated for the right play situations.

the truth is that I do not give much ball to this type of thing, since many times they play while at work or doing something else and do not pay much attention to what they do, more if they are usually freeroll tables since the many people who enter only a few have the chance to win prizes Sad Sad Sad

These sitouts are frequent on tournies of $10+ buyins too (at least I've seen them multiple times), how do you explain those?

In the past some player do that in DON SnG´s without a turbo modus to reach the prize pool. But a lot of poker rooms changed their structure and so it was no more possible to make proftit with this strategy. A other strategy was to wait the first levels with low blinds.
