Ape In Poker always strives for an even playing field. If you ever experience connectivity issues with your device, we have the following policies that will apply should it occur during gameplay
If a player was playing at a cash table and got disconnected, the table will wait for him/her for up to 75 seconds to reconnect. If the player logs back on during this time, he/she can simply continue from where he/she left the previous online session, with no lost moves. If the player is unable to reconnect within this time, then he/she will be folded from the ongoing hand and removed from the table. Another player can then be seated at the table instead.
At a tournament, especially in the later stages, a disconnection could have serious consequences in terms of prize pool etc. Therefore, a player is not removed from a table, but the system will continue playing automatically for him until the player returns back to the game. During this period, the software will take automatic actions on behalf of the player (i.e., post antes and blinds, and check wherever possible), but will fold whenever a bet or a raise has to be called and therefore a decision is needed. When the player reconnects, he can continue from that time. If a player is unable to reconnect, then eventually the player’s stack will dwindle to zero due to blinds and antes, and the player will then exit the tournament.
