You must buy-in a minimum amount of chips
when sitting down at your chosen table.
The minimum limit is equal to ten times
the lower bet limit of the game. For example
on a $1/$2 table the minimum buy-in is $10,
on a $5/$10 table the minimum buy-in is
Up to 8 players plus a dealer are seated
around a table.
You like all other players must ante before
any cards are dealt. The amount of the
ante reflects the table limits. The lower
the limit, the lower the ante. $1.00/$2.00
tables have an ante of $0.25, and $10.00/$20.00
tables have a $1.00 ante.
You are dealt two down cards ("Hole"
cards) and one up card. The player showing
the lowest card by suit (highest to lowest:
spades, hearts, diamonds, clubs) must
bring-in the first round of betting with
a forced bet of half the lower limit.
The player who is to begin the betting
will be prompted.
After the initial bet, three more up cards
are delivered (with a round of betting
after each card), then a final down card
and a final round of betting. There are
betting limits at each table. The stakes
being offered at the particular table
determine the limit or maximum bet on
any player's turn. For example, at a $1-$2
table, the limit on any bet is $1 on the
first two betting rounds and $2 on the
final three betting rounds.
We allow one bet and three raises in our
card room. The final raise is capped and
the only options you have are to call
or fold at this point. The action of the
first two rounds is set at the lower limit
of the table structure. The exception
to this rule is when a player shows a
pair after the 4th street the bet is the
lower limit multiplied by two.
All players have the option to bet the
higher limit for the second round of betting.
If a player does bet the higher limit,
subsequent bets must also be at the higher
Any five of your seven cards can be used
to make up your best poker hand. The best
poker hand wins the pot. Should multiple
hands tie, the pot is split with any odd
amount going to the player immediately
to the left of the dealer.
If all eight players are still in the
hand on the river, the total number of
cards needed for all the players to receive
their own card would not be available
in a standard deck of cards. In this case
the river card will be dealt face up on
the table and it will be used as a community
After a hand is completed and the pot
taken by the winner, the dealer button
is moved one player to the left and the
next hand begins.
