Why are some players able to remove money from Cash and FF?
German licensing requires a Table Balance Limit across Germany. If a German players' table balance reaches 500x the big blind in a Cash Game (or fastforward), the excess funds are removed from the table.
This balance reduction only happens to German players. Any player at the table will see a lock animation and a reduction of the players table balance when this occurs.
Example: If a player is playing in a $1/$2 game, the Table Balance Limit will be $1000 ($2 x 500). If the player has more than $1000 on the game table, the excess amount will automatically be transferred to their wallet.
