Single ante query

Been using the single Button ante for a while now and working well but this cropped up the other night. Blinds 1,000/2,000 but button only has 800 left. He puts that out as the ante meaning it's short but thats not the main issue. He didnt win the hand but if he did what was he entitled to win? 800 from each player in the hand? Or just the 800 ante he posted?

An interesting one definitely.

Imo, he'd only be entitled to win his ante back for that hand.

The next hand he'd be in the cut off and if he went all in, he'd be entitled to 800 from any player involved in the hand plus 800 of the 2,000 ante.

I'm sure someone with more knowledge and experience will answer but I think I'd be fairly close with what I said.

Would he not be entitled to the full ante?

On a similar note, when using the BB ante if a player in the BB has only say 1,000 and the Bb and BB ante is higher, his 1,000 stands as an ante or a blind?

Can actually be either depending on venue. Ante most common id imagine.

So you changed your rules without actually knowing your new rules?
