Live poker tends to be significantly different than online. Rules Always protect your cards. That doesn't mean don't let someone grab them and run, it means cover your cards with something. Use one of your poker chips. If you don't, and are in the seats close the dealer, the dealer will rarely, accidentally muck your hand. This isn't their fault. It's ...

This is a little tricky. A non-verbal check is generally defined as "knocking or taping the table." So a single hit on the table with a fist does generally qualify as a check. Checking in the dark is a completely legal move. And since the bettor would have been next to act after the card is dealt, the non-verbal check motion might qualify as a check in ...

Should Hero have called villain's pre-flop raise, re-raised, or folded? The only thing you can do is call. You've labelled Villian as tight-aggressive and he's made a small reraise after you've opened under the gun. This is a fairly strong sign of strength. Let's look at your options: Jamming: KQs is doing badly against the average TAG players range in ...

Hero's flop bet is terrible, IMO. You made only bad arguments for betting on the flop. Do you want villain to fold on the flop? Really? why? Which hands do you want him to fold? pre-flop I'm almost always calling villain's 3bet (depends on table conditions, which you didn't specify). KQs is a good hand, which does well in this spot, both if more players ...

This things should be declared in the "house rules". Same for the muck rule, if you can muck losing hands without showing after paying the river. Or if it's allowed to show one of your cards in middle of the game to the opponent. etc. etc. You should always put all your chips together over the betting line in casinos. Because in the end it doesn't matter if ...

for this kind of problems you always have "house rules". the same for showdown or muck hands, sorry I don't know the exact name right now. Did he hit the table before the other guy called to see the river? When it's not his turn, he can't do any action. If it was not his time to act he can receive a warning for that ... (i got one yesterday for folding ...

I always thought that this was mostly a mental tool for helping players focus on position. If you look at your cards right away, it's easy to stop thinking about anything other than "hmm, I have an ace, but it's weak" or "nice, a pocket pair!" If you don't look right away, you'll be thinking more about the state of the table for that hand, like "okay, I'm ...
