With live poker currently on a high following a record-breaking wsop and success elsewhere around the world, any sort of controversy isn’t ideal.

The court of public opinion seems to be saying that, even though a mistake at the bubble was made and many were disgruntled soon after, it’s not one that should mar the Star Sydney Champs forever.

Have you ever been faced with a similar situation as stated in the article?

Yes I think in this case the tournament director should have notified people immediately after the mistake that 64th place would pay out exactly the same as 63rd would. Any other decision would be completely wrong. Find the extra dollars somewhere!

I faced some Dealers mistakes. Never happened on the bubble like that before. On a big event they should be more carefull and organize things better.
