How does the Split option work in Pool Rummy Games?
There are different rules for 2-Player Manual Split and 3-Player Manual Split.
2-Player Manual Split: This is applicable to 101 and 201 pool tables where the game started off with more than 2 players.
3-Player Manual Split: This is applicable to 101 and 201 pool tables where the game started off with three or more players. It is also applicable if a third player rejoins after being eliminated. The manual split is applicable if the difference in the number of drops possible for any two of the three players is not greater than two during a game. The Manual Split option works in 101 pool games when the total score of all the players at the end of a round is greater than or equal to 61. The same applies to 201 pool games when the total score is greater than or equal to 151.
How is the Prize Split Processed?
Each player’s remaining drop will be equated to the player’s who has the least number of remaining drops. The excess drops of each player will be paid out from the prize pool as follows:
Number of Excess Drops X Entry Fee
Let us see an example to understand the rule better. More than three players join a 101 Pool Rummy game but only three players remain, as other players drop out of the game. If all the remaining three players accept the split option, the prize pool will be distributed according to each player’s remaining number of drops.
If Player A has 2 drops left, Player B has 1 drop left and Player C has no drops left, the calculation for the prize pool distribution will be as follows:
Prize Pool = Rs.300
1 Drop = Rs.50
Player A: 2 Drops
Player B: 1 Drop
Player C: 0 Drops
Since Player A and Player B have more drops, they will get a bigger portion from the prize pool.
Player A: 2 X 50 = 100
Player B: 1 X 50 = 50
Player C: Remaining Drops = 0
Remaining Prize Pool = 300 – 100 - 50 = Rs.150
Remaining Prize Pool Distribution = 150/3 (number of remaining players) = Rs. 50
Player A: 100+50 = 150
Player B: 50+50 = 100
Player C: 50
