There is probably no wrong or right answer to this just wondered what the general opinion is.
To set the scene. I was just playing in a tourney where we got down to the final 6 and 5 paid. The chip leader at the start of the final table never came back from the break and we all agreed to let them blind out. All apart from one guy who continued to play normally and put a couple of us at risk of going out on the bubble.
I guess there are several questions here really:
Would you say that this is considered some form of collusion?
Were we wrong to do this?
Or since the guy clearly figured he would survive the bubble does it serve them right for sitting out the remainder of the tourney?
What would you all do in this situation?
Finally was the guy that continued to play normally right to try and take advantage of the fact he knew we were all folding, even with decent hands?
