This is a discussion on late registration within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; What happens when you knock everyone out of a tourney before late registration ends. Does the tourney end or do you have to wait for
With all the chips that you will have amassed, it should be pretty easy.
I thought they cut off late registration once people were in the money, otherwise people could just register and cash without even playing. I’m sure I’ve noticed this on 888 but maybe I’m mistaken. Doesn’t make much sense though to allow registration once in the money.
I played some satellites and we were the minimum of players required to start, I think we were 9 playing and how to eliminate 6 players and at that moment the record was closed since it was only 1 prize
I played on Cryptonia (a new crypto room) Sunday, freeroll, 73 players, 15 remaining,15 prizes. I Late registered and was placed 13th, went all in with pocket Kings and was beat by Pocket Aces! But still finished where I started for 2% of the pot lol!
I guess I would have to say that it depends on what site you're playing on. I know for a fact that on certain sites registration ends when the money I reached. For example, I would play in a particular tournament in the wee hours, that would frequently start with only five or six players in the field. Soon enough there would be enough players for a second table to be created and so on as the field grew.
At one point, for a week straight it seemed, this same tournament regularly started with only three or four players registered. If there were four players registered and one got knocked out, then registration was closed. If the tournament started with three players, registration would remain open. But if a fourth player registered and then a player got knocked out, registration would be closed once it field got back down to three players (the money). I specifically remember this because after it happened the first time and we saw what happened, we made it a point to try not to knock each other out until there were sufficient players in the field to insure that tourney would last long enough for more registrants to enter and thus build a decent prize pool.
Another thing that I specifically remember was that there always seemed to be certain players that would try to take advantage of the fact that players were making an effort not to eliminate each other, by frequently going all-in, knowing that they were unlikely to be called but someone who not only didn't want to get knocked out, but didn't want to knock the other player out either. In fact this is the only time that I can remember actively participating in stalling tactics.
Remember, if you play long enough, you will eventually see everything.
None of you seem to understand. I'm not locked in here with all of you. All of you are locked in here with ME!

9. Late Registration: Late Registration is available in most tournaments. The length of the late registration period varies, but will always be shown in the tournament ticket in the Quick Seat lobby, in the details panel of the https://www.pokerstars.uk/locate/pokerstarsuk/lobby/tourney/all, and in the header of the Tournament lobby for that tournament. Late registration time is measured in clock time (as opposed to tournament play time). For example, if a tournament starts at 09:00 and has 90 minutes of late registration, registration will close at 10:30. Late registration will close early if enough players are eliminated to begin payouts.
Interesting question, have no idea on the answer but tournaments with late registrations usually mean very large player pools
So it would be highly unlikely for any [one] player to be able to eliminate every single player in the tournament before a late registration actually ends.
But still, I like the question.
Don't Hate da Player...... Hate da Loss ......
Late registration is when the tournament start and registration is still opens ( it can stay 10 /20/40 min depends on the tournament) . Nothing in the play changes , just play normal , blind are increasing, if u take someone one , he can t register even if it s late registration, same thing goes for you. Not all the tournaments have late registration. Check the tournament lobby to know if it for late registration or not
I'm pretty sure that the tourney won't end till the entire registration time has expired. But, it would only seem fair that if you have taken out all existing players that the tourney should end with you the winner.
So this just happened to me the other day actually - I forget the exact numbers so I'll be making them up, but what happened was I was in a Tourney with like 2 levels of late reg remaining and we were getting close to the money with 244 total entrants, 43 players remaining and 36 places paid. The next person registered and when it became 245 total entrants the prize pool expanded to payout 45 people instead of 36. When this happened late registration immediately ended, AND one player who busted right before the bubble prior to the new player (45th place) was also paid even though he was already out... Not sure if they got an alert or anything saying they placed, I'm curious what happened on their end. But yeah - here is a real life example of this, late registration ends as soon as it reaches ITM.
What happens when you knock everyone out of a tourney before late registration ends. Does the tourney end or do you have to wait for late comers and take them out too.
That's a good question Cracker. I have never seen that situation happen, that I can remember. People are saying that you would just have to wait for the registration period to end. That's pretty wild. Anyways, take care
