If things shut down for too long they either refund the buy in or split up the prize pool between players equally. Problem happens when a player is at final table and has 90 percent of chips, instead of getting 90 percent of prize pool they get 11 percent.
Also if mid hand in a cash game they split the pot, you could just have pushed all in with a flush, and the pot gets split with the person u caught bluffing.
On a large scale it would be tough to really proportionally divide prize pools, so the way they do it makes sense.
I have also wondered, if someone knew how to make full tilt servers crash, they could play for any amount of money and if got behind in a hand or close to getting knocked out of tournament, send a death ping to full tilts servers and crash it all, gets the player their money back, or a portion of prize pool.
