Poker Rules

These rules apply to all games. The rules are almost identical to the ones used in Las Vegas casinos

In case of dissagreement the management decision is final

Hand ranking

The winning hand is always determined by the best hand made out of 5 cards. Aces are the strongest card, except in the straight A-2-3-4-5 when the Ace is counted as 1

If two or more players have the card of the same rank, the winning hand is the one with the stronger kicker

If the hand is still tied, kicker (stronges card) decides the winning hand

Example

Q-Q-Q-6-6 Wins Q-Q-Q-5-5
Kh-7h-5h-3h-2h Wins Qs-Js-Ts-8s-6s
A-A-K-T-6 Wins A-A-Q-J-5
J-J-J-A-Q Wins J-J-J-A-9

If there is an odd chip (1 cent) it goes to the winnign player left of the dealer

Buy-in

'

Our games are played with stakes. This means that you can play only with chips that are available at your table in front of you. There are minimum buy-ins on each table and on PL and NL tables there is also a maximum buy-in.

New Player

New player that wishes to join a game with blinds, needs to either wait for the big blind or invest the eaqual amount of the big blind to start playing from different positions.

Missed blinds

If you miss playing the blind in a particular round the house dealer asks if you want to post, that is, put in as many chips as are in the blind you missed.

All-in

When a player puts the last of their chips into a pot, that player is said to be all­in. An all-in player is not eligible to win more money from any other player then what he had at the table before the pot. The all­in player will be eligible for the main pot and if other players bet more there will be a side pot.

Server Problems

If there is a server crash before the tournament has started the registered players will get a refund of the buy-in and/or the entry fee within 24 hours. The tournament is started when the first hand of cards is dealt.

Limiti

General

In all limit games, raise has to at least the size of a previous Bet/Raise except if player is all in

Fixed Limit

On each table there is a limit that determines blinds and bets. Big blind is considered the lower limit in limit games ( for example €5/10 the big blind is €5). The lower limit is used in first two rounds of betting and the higher limit is used in the last two betting rounds. Maximum number of bets which can be done in one round is 4 (bet + 3 raises).

No Limit

in No limit games players can bet any amount in any moment. The only restriction is the amount of chips you have on the table. Minimum bet is eaqual to the big blind.

Pot Limit

In Pot Limit games, players are allowed to bet any amount at any time up to the size of the pot. The minimum bet is equal to the size of the big blind or the bring-in.

Rake

All out play money games are free. If you are playing for real money a small fee called rake is taken from the pot. Rake is taken only in pots where there had been a flop dealt. Only player that received whole cards (active players) are considered participants.

No Limit, Pot Limit and Fixed Limit:

Rake is defined by weighted contributed method which means that each player participates in rake proportionally with the amount he invested in the pot. Rake is a 5% fee from the pot where there was a flop up to the maximum of €3.

Rake rules:

  • There is not Rake before the flop
  • Rake is 5%
  • Max Rake is 3 EUR
  • You have the right on rakeback for Ring games play. (SitnGos and tournaments are not ring games)
  • Tournament games do not count towards rakeback

Rakeback Rules

  • The players have the right to 30% of rakeback of contributed rake. Each rakeback is counted individually and is rounded to 2 decimals

Example of Rakeback calculation

Total pot is 30 EUR
Rake 5% = 1,5 EUR
Rakeback - total 30%*1,5 =0,45 EUR
Rakeback individual
How many players were in the pot and how many individually invested in the pot?
Example:
4 players , ( player A , player B, player C, player D)
player A = 10 EUR or 33,33% of pot
player B = 10 EUR or 33,33 % of pot
player C = 5 EUR or 16,66% of pot
player D = 5 EUR or 16,66% of pot
Individually per player
Player A (0,45*0,33) =0,14EUR
Player B (0,45*0,33) =0,14 EU
Player C (0,45*0,16) =0,07 EUR
Player D (0,45*0,16) =0,07 EUR

Texas Hold'em

Players

At the same table there can be 2, 6 or 9 players, defined by the table rules

Dealer

In Texas Hold'em the button determines the dealer and it moves clockwise.

Blinds

Texas Hold'em is a game with two blins ''Small Blind'' and ''Big Blind''. Before the cards are dealt players invest blinds in the pot. The player left of the dealer puts small blind and the next player in turn puts big blind.

Blinds are considered ''live'' bets. If you have put a blind in the pot you only have to put the difference if there is one between the blind and the current bet or raise. Players in blind can fold, call, check or raise.

Dealing

Every player gets 2 cards face down. These cards are called whole cards. After that comes the flop which is 3 cards face up. After that comes the turn which is another community card face up. The last community card is called the River or fifth street. This comes to 5 community cards that are face up.

Betting

In texas Holde'em there are 4 rounds of betting. The first round of betting is after all players receive 2 whole cards. In that round a player left of the big blind is first. In subsequent rounds the frist active player left of the dealer begins the action.

Showdown

If there is no more betting, after all cards had been dealt, showdown determined the winner. The hand with the strongest 5 cards wins the pot. Players can use 1 or 2 whole cards, but they can also play the board which means they are using all 5 community cards. If 2 or more players show the same hand, they split the pot.

If there was betting on the River, the player that made the last bet or raise has to show his hand first. If there was no betting, first remaining player left of the dealer show his hand.
