Extra buy-in for late registration
« on: August 28, 2006, 12:41:00 PM »
Hey all,

I'm planning a tourney in October and I'm really trying to get people to pay in advance to minimize the cash taken at the door. As such, we are planning to charge an additional buy-in for those late comers. What would be the best way to do this? I'm thinking my options are an additional rake at the door or increasing the buy-in that day. The additional buy-in would either go to the main pot or be added to a "later buy-in" increased bounty on someone's head.

Thanks!

I've been thinking about my own question and I think that I've come up with a solution. What I'm going to do is add the additional money collected for late registrants and add it to the home contribution and using that for an additional bounty or add to the pot. That way you don't have to alter the buy-in for any player.

Or give late registers and buy-In's 10-20% less chips! Works splendid.
