Disconnect Protection

  1. Noun

    A system for online cardrooms so that a player is considered all-in if that player loses connection to the website, allowing the player to be eligible for the pot up until the point at which disconnection occurred; all-in disconnect protection.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Not all online cardrooms offer disconnect protect. Check the cardroom policies before playing, especially if you are uncertain about the reliability of your internet connection.

    EXAMPLE: "Even though my favorite cardroom folds people who drop rather than offering disconnect protection, it isn't that big a problem for me since my connection is really stable."

    APPLIES TO: Online Venues
