Poker Client - What happens when I disconnect while involved in a hand?
If you are disconnected, and therefore unable to act on your hand while having chips invested in the pot in a ring game, you may be given extra time to reconnect.
While each user is responsible for his or her own Internet connection, we make an effort to protect players who are disconnected during a hand or final stages of a tournament (with a buy-in), by allowing you time to reconnect, known as Disconnect Extra Time (DET).
The exact amount of extra time given depends on the type of game and the size of the pot at the time of your disconnection. However, if you do not reconnect during this time, your hand will be folded, regardless of your investment in the pot or the strength of your hand.
