Poker Rules

The following are poker rules, outlined here for the benefit of new poker players:

1. The buy-in:

This is about the first buy-in of the player, or replenishing after going for an all-in, and then losing the pot. Anyone with chips may buy additional chips to add to their stack if they want, if they are not involved in a play for a pot.

The casino has set a minimum buy-in for every poker game. All the buy-ins and the re-buys should be for at least that specific amount. There will be no short buys permitted.

All players must abide by this rule of the table, for this is the buy-in requirement.

2. Table Stakes:

Every table has its own rules that have to be followed by players. Here are some table stakes rules:

a. Only the chips at the table before the deal begins shall be allowed in the game and in the pot (there is an exception in rule "b").

b. The dealer can allow chips that are in transit from the cashier by the house runner, provided that it has been given proper consent. Other players should be informed if this is the case.

c. Chips or money that are concealed as they are placed under the chip rack, or ash tray, will not be included in the game, especially in a non- tournament poker game.

3. Changes during a deal:

During a deal, any changes of the conditions may not be entertained.

4. Direction of Play:

The direction of the poker game is always clockwise. After a player's turn the next player on their left will follow immediately.

5. Hand Protection:

It is the players' responsibility to protect their hand. Anyone who leaves the table without consent, or comment, will be considered to have no interest in the game, or in the pot.

6. Proper Card:

Each card that is dealt by the dealer should be dealt from the top of every deck. There is a proper way to receive cards and a proper order of each card dealt.

7. Bottom Card of Deck:

This is the card that is never dealt; it is at the bottom of the deck, where it must stay.

8. Exposed Cards:

a. These are cards that are dealt by the dealer, facing up, for other players to see. A card that is exposed by the player is not technically considered an exposed card.

b. Replacing an exposed card is dependent on the ruling of the dealer. At the same time, players have the option of whether they can reject, or accept, the card.

c. The rule on replacing an exposed card should be done in a way that all the requirements of "Proper Card" are regarded.
