PokerStars All-in Cash Out: everything you need to know about the new poker room feature
Recently, PokerStars introduced a new feature called All-in Cash Out.
When playing for real money at PokerStars cash games, a cashout is available for players directly during the all-in. This reduces the risk of losing and allows players to get financial value for their equity.
How does All-in Cash Out work at PokerStars?
When a player is all-in, he will be offered the amount of All-in Cash Out, depending on the player’s equity at the moment, taking into account only open cards. The function is available before the river and only on condition that the player has at least some chance of winning, but not 100%.
- If a player rejects Cash Out, the hand will take place as usual and in case of victory, he will take the whole pot for himself.
- If a player chooses Cash Out, he will immediately receive the amount offered by the room to his stack, but will not be able to claim the pot in case of a win. In such a situation, the hand will be played out as usual, but the player who received the cash will no longer have the right to win the pot. If the hand of the player who selected Cash Out wins, the bank will go to PokerStars. If he loses, then the opponent will get the pot, as in the usual hand.
- If both players choose the Cash Out option, they will be credited with the corresponding Cash Out amounts to their stacks, and at the end of the deal the pot will go to PokerStars, regardless of the hand’s result.
- If no player chooses Cash Out, the hand will continue in the usual way.
The new PokerStars feature is only available at micro limits (NL2 – NL10 and PL2 – PL10).
It works at the NL, PLO and 6+ Hold'em cash tables.
Zoom tables do not have this option.
If, suddenly, you do not like this feature and you want to disable it, you can do this in the "Settings" menu of the PokerStars client. Just turn off the All-in Cash Out function and you will no longer be offered to make a cashout during the all-in. For your opponents nothing will change.
