When playing the pick two numbers Ace through King and if they both come on the flop everyone throws you a buck game (cash game). When a player is not at the table with no cards dealt and their prop hits, do they get the money? One of the rules was that the dealer was not allowed to point out if you hit or not and that you were responsible for announcing that you hit. Also, if someone hits and your away from the table with no card dealt to you, do still owe when you return to your seat.
1. My opinion is that if you hit and you weren't dealt in and away from the table too bad.
2. If you are away from the table and someone else hits you should have to pay the prop when you return...just like if you miss a blind you should have to post when yo get back.
I'm not a fan of prop bets since it just slows down the game. And if you are paying off prop bets with chips then you can have issues with someone being all in pre-flop then hitting their cards on the Flop. Does the money that they collect or owe get included in the all-in as well?
That said, if you're going to play it just be consistent about what constitutes being involved in the prop bet. I'd go with something definitive like saying that if someone has chips on the table (or playing behind) then they are eligible to win and need to pay if someone else hits.
