Deal Making

So… What’s The Deal?

When you make the final table in a multi-table tournament, you can take advantage of our Deal Making feature. This is where you and your opponents agree to end the action and split the prize money. All tournament play stops and the money is instantly deposited into your account.

The Deal Making feature is entirely optional. It will be available at the final table of our scheduled multi-table tournaments once late registration is closed and if the number of payouts in the tournament is equal to or greater than the number of seats at the final table.

Deal Making is also available in a knockout MTT, but bounties are excluded from the deal amounts and each player keeps their bounty at the time of the deal.

Want To Make A Deal?

To make a deal, click the “I Want a Deal” button at the final table. The button will appear in place of the “Live Dealer Blackjack” button at eligible final tables. Once the first hand begins at the final table, all players will see the deal instructions dialog box.

When you click the “I Want a Deal” button, the circle surrounding your avatar will turn green and an animation will appear on the table.

Once all players have clicked the “I Want a Deal” button, you will see a message that reads: “All players would like to make a deal. After this hand, the tournament will be paused and players may review the terms of the deal.”

When the hand ends, the tournament will pause and all players will see the deal prompt. During this time, table observers will see a blank table along with the message “Players are deciding whether to make a deal.”

When the “Make a Deal” window appears, you have 5 minutes to click on the “Accept this deal” or “No deal right now” buttons before the timer elapses. You will also see the tournament prize structure, remaining players, current chip count, and the current deal amount for each player.

Deal amounts are calculated by the ICM calculator and are not negotiable.

Deals only pertain to the regular prize pool. In a bounty tournament, players will keep their current bounties in the event of a deal.

When you decide on a deal, you will see a green checkmark displayed beside each player who accepts the deal. A red checkmark will be displayed beside players who reject the deal.

If one or more players aren’t interested in a deal, all players will see a message that indicates “The deal is not accepted by all players. Play will resume in 20 seconds.”

If players reject a deal, you can make a new deal at any time, based on your new chip stack. If all players accept a deal, the tournament will end and you will see a message indicating that a deal has been accepted, and how much you’ve won (including any applicable bounties).

ACR Poker will pay out the agreed-upon amount plus any bounties. We will also update the list of winners in the tournament lobby to reflect the deal. Players who participate in a deal will be highlighted in green.
