Sandy asks…

When you play poker online or in Vegas what kind of game of poker is it? Texas hold em or ?

What is the most common game you can find (version of poker) and what are the rules ?

admin answers:

No Limit Texas Hold’Em

Basic rules go…
-you’re given two cards
-round of betting occurs in order
-flop comes, 3 community cards
-round of betting occurs
-turn comes, 1 card on the community board
-round of betting occurs
-the river card completes the 5 on the board
-round of beting, followed by a showdown

now..anyone can go all in at any time on their turn to bet, and if they are vs 1 perosn, everyone turns up their cards…also, most hands dont go all the way to the river due to people folding out instead of calling or raising

Question about rules of poker?

when playing at a casino, does everybody at the table have to agree to put a straddle in the game? is there any reason to do this in a cash game?

admin answers:

The straddle is just something that is allowed to get more money in the pot before the hand starts. When you are the „under the gun“ (the person to the immediate left of the big blind) you are allowed to „straddle“ which means you put in an amount equal to twice the big blind before you get your hole cards. The straddle is essentially another blind bet. The person to your immediate left acts first after everyone gets their hole cards. The straddle is a „live“ blind which means when the action gets back to you, you are allowed to either check or raise.

At a friendly table someone may ask if everyone will agree to the straddle and if everyone agrees then there will be 3 blinds for each hand. You don’t have to agree to it. But it is considered bad etiquette to agree to the straddle and then back out when it comes around to you after everyone else has put in the straddle when it was their turn.

What are the hands to mexican poker?

I am looking for the rules to mexican poker.

admin answers:

From the Bike’s Website:

Mexican Poker is similar to 5-card stud and is played with a standard deck “stripped” to 41 cards. The 8’s, 9’s and 10’s are removed, the Joker remains.

To receive a hand, each player posts a collection when required. The cards are dealt clockwise, beginning to the left of the dealer button. The dealer button rotates clockwise after each hand is complete.

Each player receives a total of 5 cards, of which 1 card must be face down. After the first two cards are dealt (1 up and 1 down), a betting round begins with the high card clockwise of the dealer button, making a forced opening bet to start the action. After the betting is complete, the players may expose, if they wish, their down card. This action must be complete prior to the deal of the third card which may be delivered up or down depending on whether or not previously dealt down cards have been opened. When the third card has been delivered, betting then occurs.

The fourth and fifth cards are then dealt and played according to the same format. The player with the highest ranking hand wins the pot.

The joker is “wild” in all cases when dealt face down; however, when dealt face up, it is “wild” only with Aces, Flushes and Straights.

The player with the highest card clockwise of the dealer button will make a mandatory opening bet. (When the Joker is dealt face up, it will be considered an Ace for purposes of the opening bet.) The opening bettor has the option of opening at either the lower or upper limit.

The highest hand will start the action on all following rounds. Hands are considered to be of equal value whether or not one hand may include the Joker. The closest of such hands to the dealer acts first.

If any down card is exposed by the house dealer, that player will receive his next card down and will be permitted to declare “all-in”. If the “Joker” is inadvertently exposed, it will play as if it had been dealt face down—“wild” in all cases.

The following hands are considered the same as a straight due to the removal of 8’s, 9’s and 10’s from the deck: “4–5–6–7–J” “5–6–7–J–Q” “6–7–J–Q–K” “7–J–Q–K–A”

If cards on the initial deal are dealt out of sequence, a misdeal will be declared. Two instances of action, however, will indicate acceptance, in which case there will be no misdeal. The hand missed will be fouled. Because cards on 3rd, 4th or 5th streets are dealt either face up or face down, any cards dealt out of sequence on those streets will be moved face up to their correct position. The deal of the affected street will be completed if necessary. No betting will be permitted on the affected street. Any following street will then be dealt and betting will resume. Any bets made by players who receive out of sequence cards, which had not yet been returned to their correct position will be denied and returned to the player.

If a player exposes a card, during other than prescribed times, it is not considered an exposed card and will be required to play a it as a down card.

A card will be burned on each round, following the second round.

Check and raise is permitted.

All raises must be at least equal to the size of the last bet.

Cards speak—hold your hand until you are sure of what your opponent has.

Once a card touches the muck, that hand is considered fouled. However, at the Floorperson’s discretion, it may be considered retrievable.

No string bets or raises.

One short buy is allowed for every full buy-in.

Deal rotates clockwise.

If you show any cards to one player during or after a hand, any player at your table may demand that you show those cards to all players after a winner is determined.

No rabbit hunting. Once the cards are out of play, players cannot look through the discards or ask the dealer what is coming off the deck.

All players will act in turn. If a player checks, the player who checked first must show his hand first.

A player who indicates action towards betting will not be held to that action unless he caused action behind him. A player calling will be required to complete that action with a minimum bet. However, if a player is unaware of a raise he will not be held to that unless action has been taken behind this act.

All Bicycle Club rules apply. Management reserves the right to make decisions in the best interest of the game.

All Management decisions are final.

Nancy asks…

If you were going to create an on-line poker league/club what do you think the rules should be?

admin answers:

Don’t know what site you play on or how much you want to play for but I have a few ideas for you. will host private tourneys just send an email to customer support for more info on setting up a private tournament.

As far as league rules go:

Set up a season of 6 to 10 weeks or even 3 months.

Have a small league fee like $5 or $10. If someone has a few bucks invested they will be more likely to stick around for the whole season.

Then have a points system.

1 point for playing in the weekly tournament.
1 point for finishing in the money.
And 1 scoring point (SP) for every player you have outlasted.

If there is 30 players in the tourney the first one out dosen’t get any SPs. 10th place would get 20 SPs for outlasting 20 players. The winner would get 29 SPs.

A system like this is self adjusts for a changing # of players and rewards consistancy. And it easy to figure out the scoring after the tourney by looking at the tourney lobby.

You could also add bonus points like 1 point for each knockout or place a 3 point bounty on the previous weeks winner. But that would real time score keeping.

Good luck
