I have a question... We play in a regular Texas hold ‘em tourney, each round is timed throughout the evening, after the last round the two chip leaders go heads up for the win..fairly standard stuff. Last night however, the timer went , there was a clear chip leader but 2 players were tied with exactly the same amount of chips. In this situation, how would should we have decided who went into the ‘final’? Suggested solutions were..
Three way final.
2nd & 3rd play on for a set time to decide a winner but that person only takes the chips they had when tied into the final
2nd & 3rd play for a set period of time & go into the final with whatever chip stack they have at the end of that time period.
The final round is extended for a set amount of time with all contenders playing until there are two clear finalists.
Any other suggestions or actual rules would be appreciated. Thanks
