Tonight I played a satellite to the main, qualified, then my toddler started kicking off so I unregistered uncertain if I could play.
I was a bit surprised when the entry wasn't credited to my account so I contacted live support (short out Emily H, was very helpful) and was informed you cant cash out a ticket after satellite qualification. I was put back in to the tournament so no big loss but raises a few questions.
Why is this the policy? Didn't used to be this way on Sky Poker and isn't standard on other sites.
What happens to the money after I unregister? It's not a promotion the buy-in was generated by the field does Sky just keep it now? that doesn't seem reasonable.
Back when I played satellites I would often play concurrent satellites to the same tournament if I qualify for more than one do I just lose the others? If so why punish players who are utilising the game features at a higher volume, makes no sense to me at all.
Anyway not a huge gripe I will know for the future but really curious to hear the justification for what seems like an unnatural line here.
