Your Questions About Poker

Ruth asks…

Is online poker illegal in Kansas to play for real money?

I can’t find anything, I’ve tried googling and searching but I cannot find anything that states that it is illegal or not. I want to deposit $100 or so and start up, but I thought I heard a while back that they were cracking down on it and making it tough for people who just want to play some poker.

Can anyone help me or direct me to a site that could help me?
yes, this country is really bad, that’s what happens when corporations have 100% control.

admin answers:

As an online poker player located in the United States you are NOT violating the UIGEA or any other federal law. Kansas doesn’t have any specific state law regarding online gambling so the answer is no, it’s not illegall.

Ken asks…

Is it accepted to take a cut when hosting a poker tournament?

I’m hosting a poker tournament, it’s just with small money like $15 each for 10 people,
To cover the cost of the set,
Could I take $1 from everybody, and give them $14 worth of chips?
Is this normal? Would people be ok with this do you think?

admin answers:

It depends state by state. But in general, no way. That would be illegal housing for a planned gambling activity. You can’t even charge people for food or drinks. If in a home game, only players win or lose but the host doesn’t have a benefit in games, they call it a social game and is legal in most states with some limitations.

Mark asks…

Whats the lowest possible hand to win with in Poker?

I want to know whats the lowest hand you can win with in poker. I know the 2 is the lowest, but is that even possible to do? I would like to see a video of low poker hands if anyone has some. Just interested. Thanks.

admin answers:

Good answer, opurt!

If it actually comes to a showdown, (whereas both players MUST show their hand at the end), then the 2nd to the lowest hand is 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 of mixed suits. Realistically speaking, this isn’t going to happen very often!

Still, if there are 2 players playing poker, a hand of 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 would win against a hand of 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 in a showdown.

Lizzie asks…

Who is the best poker player in the world and why?

Question is as stated. I would like to know who the best poker player in the world is and the standard that is used to measure that.

admin answers:

The Hendon Mob recently published a very interesting list, which has fanned the flames of the old debate. It isn’t simply a list of career earnings in tournaments, it has been adjusted to account for inflation of the US dollar. This seems fair, considering that someone like Doyle Brunson won his two Main Event bracelets back in 1976 and 1977 and the $340,000 in prize money for the latter, would have stretched a lot further in those days than in modern times. Brunson is 15th in the all time money list after accounting for inflation (previously 35th).

Other big movers include TJ Cloutier and Johnny Chan, who move to 4th and 8th respectively, jumping six and eight places each. Chan’s Main Event wins came in 1987 and 1988 while 40% of Cloutier’s World Series of Poker prize money was earned in the last century.

The rest of the top ten reads like a who’s who of poker, featuring the inevitable names of Daniel Negreanu (3rd. Plays at PokerStars), Scotty Nguyen (6th) and Erik Seidel (9th). However, the most interesting change is at the top, as Phil Ivey (who leads the regular all time money list with $12.8 million. Plays at Full Tilt Poker) is narrowly beaten into top spot by “Poker Brat” Phil Hellmuth (plays at Hellmuth is 4th in the regular all time money list with just under $11 million in tournament winnings, but he jumps three places into the top spot once inflation is considered.
