At WPT Poker, we are constantly improving and augmenting the service we offer to our players. Now, we're bringing you another great feature – a deal making facility.
Deal making allows players at the final table of a tournament to make a deal for all or part of the remaining prize pool. Deal making is part of the automated process that allows players to choose pre-determined deal structures and custom payouts. Note that during the game itself, a deal is not finalized unless all players have agreed to it.
Deal making is available for most real money, multi-table tournaments with a cash-only prize pool. It is not possible to use the deal making facility in a tournament that offers some of the winners the chance to take their payout in the form of an entry into another tournament.
To check whether a tournament features the deal making facility, go to the Poker Lobby and select a tournament to open the Tournament Lobby. If deal making is possible, it will say 'Final Table Deal Making Possible' in the top bulletin board message.
In the uncertain world of poker, where you can lose your stack on a bad beat, cutting a deal can make sure you still get a slice of the pot!
