Poker FAQ

A - Setting Up Your Own Table
B - Seating At A Table
C - Game Play
D - Official Hand Rankings


Section A - Setting Up Your Own Table

Setting Up A Regular Table

There are several options to setting up a table, I will explain each option and how it affects the game.

The first possible option is the name of the table. This is what you will tell friends to look for when searching to join your game. Usually using your nickname in the table name will help people to find you.

The second option is Stakes. This is the amount of money the first two players after the dealer will pay, Each player afterwards will be given the option to call this amount or fold. If the stake is set at $20, The first player after the dealer will pay half of that amount (called small blind - $10) and the second player will pay the entire amount (called big blind - $20) to begin the game.

The third option is Bet Limit. If left on, the amount players can raise is limited by the option above. If off... bets are unlimited, or limited to the amount of money they have at the table.

Fourth option is Minimum Money. This allows you to set how much money a user must have to be seated and play at your table.

Fifth option is Maximum Money. If you wish to limit how much money other players can set with, this is where that amount is set.

The sixth option, is Speed. This controls the refresh script, and determines how long a player has to make a move before their hand is automatically folded.

The seventh option is Minimum Level. This allows the table creator to limit what level players can be seated.

and the last option, Password, allows you to password protect your table, forcing players who wish to play to know the password to join. Players who do not know the password will not be able to seat themselves or watch the game.

Setting up a Tournament Table

The first option is Name, This is the name of the tournament. This is what you will tell friends to look for when searching to join your game. Usually using your nickname in the table name will help people to find you.

the second option is 'Buy In'. This is what it will cost others to join the tournament. This can be set to any amount allowed by the dropdown, and determines what the costs will be to play. In a tournament game, all buy ins are collected and become the prize for the tournament (if 5 people buy in at 10,000... the tournament prize will be $50,000) In a tournament game, each player is given 1000 dollars to play out the tournament, the last person left at table with money... wins the prize!

The third option speed, This controls the refresh script, and determines how long a player has to make a move before their hand is automatically folded.

The fourth option is Minimum Level. This allows the table creator to limit what level players can be seated.

and the last option, Password, allows you to password protect your table, forcing players who wish to play to know the password to join. Players who do not know the password will not be able to seat themselves or watch the game.

Section B - Seating At A Table

How do I Join A Game?

To join a game our tournament, Visit the casino and click the link to Poker. When you have opened the poker window, you will see two lists. The top list is a list of regular poker tables, the lower list is a list of running tournaments. If you are seeking a particularly named table, scroll down the list til you find the table you seek. If you are looking to join a table that you can afford to bet and play at, view the available options listed after each table name. To join a table, click the 'Join' link beside the one of your choice after the table options.

What do all those options mean?

The options listed after a table can be somewhat confusing to people who are unfamiliar with poker. Most can be explained above. I will quickly summarize them here.

Name - Name of game given to table by the table starter.

Players - Number of players and seats currently available. 3/8 means 3 people are at the table with a max of 8 players.

Stakes - This is the small and big blind amounts, also the minimum betting amount.

Bet Limit - This can be On for limiting maximum bets, Or Off for unlimited betting.

Min Money - This is the amount of money you must have to seat at the table to play.

Speed - This is how long you have to make a decision when it is your turn. Taking longer
then this time will force you to fold.

Level - This is the minimum level you must be to play.

Password - If set to yes, you will need to know the password to play.

Section C - Game Play

A Texas Hold'em poker game goes as follows:

Each player is dealt 2 cards face down. These are called your hole or pocket cards. Five cards are placed in the center of the table, these five are called the community cards.

The two players to the left of the dealer, then pay blinds (these are determined by the table settings, see above), and gameplay begins with the third person in the first round of betting. This is called the pre-flop betting round. You place your bet by either calling the blind amount, or entering an amount to bet (or sliding the slide bar) and reraising or you can also fold your hand if you do not wish to play your hole cards. This betting method is used in all rounds of betting in the game.

When betting for that round has completed. The dealer then displays what is called the flop. The flop is the first three cards of the community. These are communal cards that anyone can use in combination with their two pocket cards to form a poker hand.

The player to the left of the dealer begins another round of betting.

When betting for that round has completed, the dealer flips one more of the center cards. This is called the turn card. Players can use this sixth card now to form a five card poker hand.

The player to the left of the dealer begins another round of betting.

When betting for that round has completed, the dealer then flips over the final card on the table. This is called the river. Players can now use any of the five cards on the table or the two cards in their pocket to form a five card poker hand.

There is one final round of betting starting with the player to the left of the dealer.

When betting for this final round has completed, all of the players remaining in the game reveal their hands. Players use a combination of their pocket cards and the community cards to form a poker hand. The player who shows the best hand wins! There are cases where players with equal hands share the winnings.

TOURNAMENT GAME PLAY - In tournaments, all buy-ins are collected by the bank, and each person starts the tournament with $1000. In tournament play, if you go broke... you are removed from the tournament. You cannot rejoin. The last player with money in a tournament wins the money held by the bank.

Section D - Official Ranks Of Poker Hands

#1 - Royal Flush - A, K, Q, J, 10, of any single suit
#2 - Straight Flush - K, Q, J, 10, 9, Any suited straight, all one suit
#3 - Four of a Kind - A, A, A, A, K, The Kicker determines ties
#4 - Full House - A, A, A, K, K, - 3 of a kind calls winner (Aces full of Kings)
#5 - Flush - A, J, 8, 7, 3, - of any single suit, Highest card determines winner
#6 - Straight - K, Q, J, 10, 9, - Highest card determines winner
#7 - Three of a Kind - A, A, A, K, Q, - Highest kicker breaks ties
#8 - Two Pair - A, A, K, K, Q, - Highest single pair determines winner
#9 - Pair - A, A, J, K, Q, - Highest kicker breaks ties
#10 - High Card - A, 8, J, K, Q, - Next highest card breaks ties

Other Considerations: No suit ranks higher than any other suit in traditional poker. In community games, it is common for two hands to get the same hand, even big hands. In that event, determine the winner by the rules above. In the event that two players in a community game have the exact same hand, kickers and all, split the pot.

Enjoy your games!

A little visual back up on the different hands:

I was just on the poker site. I played a few games and I saw that there are differen tables with the same players. So the players who join more then 1 game are really slow, so the games progesses very slow. And thats very annoying. So keep your mind just at one game.

Great tutorial.

My guess is that earned poker score is your net amount earned over time.

So you are in a tournament ,, and TC slows down ,, you try to get back in and you time out ,, why can you rejoin the table ,, when you still have money on the table ,, and you lose it all in the first hand ,, Ched should do something about that ,, this is not the first time or the last ,,,

Heh - the level 13 thing is annoying. The check option is like passing - you don't need to put more money in but it doesn't force others to either. If other people have bet before you then you can't check. Hope that helps Crusnik.

I am not positive but I think the score is based on the hand you win with not the money involved if I am not mistaken, or other wise players with 400+million would stack the scores.

I know I got 100k points for quads and 50k for a full house, and both pots were about the same.

SORRY IT WAS AN ACE HIGH FLUSH

MnQueen won the pot of $1,178,149 with the hand: Four of a Kind Sixes
Earned poker score: 100263

MnQueen won $1,138,627 with the hand: Flush, Ace high
Earned poker score: 50014

Why on earth are people making up their own silly rules like "No preflop"? seems to be reducing the game to childsplay....

I think there is a mistake in betting structure.

Betting should be twice of big blind for turn and river.

e.g. big blind = 5000
flop bet 5000
turn bet 10000
river bet 10000

People - stop with the "no pre-flop raise"-games. That's not poker!
When I play, I play aggresive - if you want to see the flop holding 72 - pay for it!
