Pocket52 poker tournaments will not distribute prize money when a tournament is in the late registration phase. The tournament will keep on running till the late registration period is over.
If the tournament is left with only one player then that player has to wait for the late registration period to get over to receive the prize money.
This policy has been made to keep the tournament gameplay fair to all the players irrespective of the joining time in the tournament
If a tournament has to cancel for any reason, Pocket52 will make a concerted effort to compensate players in the fairest and most equitable way possible. There are three different possible compensation methods, depending on the exact circumstances and timing of the cancellation. The method to be applied shall be the sole discretion of the Tournament Management.
In this case, the site is "rolling back" the tournament as if it never happened - if players were registered for the tournament, they get their buy-in and fees (including rebuys, add-ons, and knock out entry if any) refunded. Also, the buy-in is refunded in exactly the same format with which they bought in. For instance, if one bought into a tournament using a Ticket, then he will get the ticket back which can be redeemed for an equivalent cash prize.
Roll Forward means that the site is distributing the money from the tournament based at least partially on the results. Let’s say that if a tournament is cancelled and the Site does a "roll forward" before the players are in the money, it refunds each remaining player his tournament fee (and knockout bounty if appropriate) and then divide up the prize pool based on the following formula:
1.2.1. 50% (fifty per cent) of the award pool is distributed evenly among all remaining players; and
1.2.2. 50% (fifty per cent) of the award pool is distributed proportionally according to the chip count.
When a tournament is cancelled, and players have already reached the money, the Site refunds each remaining player his tournament fee (and knockout bounty if appropriate), and then divide up the prize pool based on the following formula:
1.3.1. Each player receives the minimum prize not yet awarded at the time of cancellation
1.3.2. The remainder of the award pool distributed is distributed proportionally according to the chip count
A private table is a cash game table that is created by a pocket52 user to play a game of poker with his/her friends and family. A User can create a maximum of 5 tables at a time in the private game lobby but he/she can join any number of tables to play the cash games.
The commission is a set percentage of the rake generated on the private table that will be given to the owner of the table.
The commission will be 'X % (Currently X = 10) of the net rake generated ( Rake without GST component) Commission earned is updated in user transaction history after every commission cycle.
The Commission cycle is the duration for which the commission will be calculated for the user and then it will be transferred to the user’s wallet in the next six hours. Duration for the commission cycle is 24 hours (12:00 am to 11:59 pm). Eg. if a user generates the commission of Rs. 100 during a commission cycle then that amount will be transferred to his/her account within 6 hours after the commission cycle completion.

If the parties are unable to resolve the Dispute amicably within 30 days of the notice of such Dispute, POCKET52 may elect to resolve any Dispute by a binding arbitration in accordance with the provisions of the Indian Arbitration & Conciliation Act, 1996 (hereinafter Act).
