I think this question is a little different than the usual question that needs the standard Best Five Cards answer. In this question, the nuance is whether player 2 gets any special consideration for having his 10 counterfeited. Does player 2 get some sort of bonus for being able to play both of his cards to make the best five-card hand, while player 1 could ...

I am going to ignore the bet amounts and your stack size first and give you a general answer, you have no fold equity anyway. Well in live, yes you can, there is nothing stopping you from physically turning your hand over and if you're all-in your hand cannot be made dead. However it is extremely bad etiquette. I have been a poker dealer for 3 years, ...

This is false. The hand will play out as usual with the flop, turn, and river. I'm not sure where your friend heard this or why he believed it. There are plenty of televised heads-up tournament matches available with a quick youtube search where you can see how heads-up hands get played.

No, B folded. They are no longer in the hand. Cards are tabled, main pot of 75$ goes to A or C, depending on who has the best cards. If a side pot exists it goes to C.

The best five cards play, so the remaining players at showdown split the pot. In the case of a full house, if somebody has a better pair in their hand or make of 4 of a kind the best 5 card hand wins. If there are 4 of a kind on the board, the highest fifth card wins. I flopped a full house once. Nines full of sevens. I lost when the turn and river ...

Both players tie and should split the pot. They have the same poker hand as each other: KK77A When in doubt, just remember that poker hands are always five cards.

That was the wrong way to do it. It should have been a split pot. They both had the same best five card hand.

Tournaments are different from live play. Once the all-in bet is called, both hands must be turned face up immediately. Neither player is allowed to fold. Both hands are live, and remain face up while the rest of the cards are dealt.

The standard casino rule is that the dealer is not supposed to count the pot for you. He may, however, "spread" the pot on request so that its contents are more visible and easier for a player to count (especially if there are buried high-value chips). An exception to this rule is if you pre-commit to a bet. For example "I bet the pot" or "I bet half the ...

The reason it is penalized is to stop collusion and giving an unfair advantage to other players. Let me just give you two examples to the above reasons. Player A and player B are working together to try win, this could entail anything from soft playing each other to just straight dumping of chips. So lets just say in a hand we get to the river, maybe 3 ...

General dead-button or forward-moving-button rules apply when three or more players remain. When you get down to two players, whoever most recently paid the big blind posts the small blind, the other player posts the big blind, and the button is moved under the small blind.

Common casino rules are these: Pots are split as evenly as possible down to the smallest betting unit of the game. In a typical small game, that's usually a $1 chip, but in some games it might be a $5 chip or even bigger. The "odd" chip(s) left over after everyone gets the maximum equal amount are distributed differently depending on the game being played. ...

Assuming you're referring to No Limit Texas Holden, the answer is yes. Player No.2 can go all-in in that situation. To make things clear, Here are the three betting rules in no limit Texas Holden: Any player facing a bet at any stage of the hand can fold, call, raise, or go all in. Any player facing a check, or he's the first to act, can bet, go all in, ...

No matter the subsequent actions of player 1, as soon as player 2 folds, player 1 should be awarded the side pot, even if his cards are never seen by anyone. Player 3 should never, ever be awarded the side pot, since he didn't have enough money in the pot to earn that from the other players. He was all in for less than the others had, so he should never be ...

This doesn't apply universally, but anywhere that uses the TDA rules would use this: 34: Misdeals A: Misdeals include but are not necessarily limited to: 1) 2 or more boxed cards on the initial deal; 2) first card dealt to the wrong seat; 3) cards dealt to a seat not entitled to a hand; 4) a seat entitled to a hand is dealt out; 5) In stud, if any ...

In this case absolutely it's a misdeal from every place I've ever worked. But once every player has gotten a card the situations for a misdeal change. I have worked in some places that will call it a misdeal regardless of when a card is exposed during the deal, I.E. button's last card exposed, misdeal. Likewise I have worked in places where after every ...

Each player in a basic game of poker is given five cards to make their hand. There are variants to the game where players receive more then five cards and players have community cards. However it is the best five cards of a players hand that make their hand. If the best five cards you have, are not better then another players best five cards you loose the ...

Depends on the rules in use. Two common sets are Roberts rules and Tournament Directors Association (TDA) rules. From Roberts Rules: IRREGULARITIES: If the dealer prematurely deals any cards before the betting is complete, those cards will not play, even if a player who has not acted decides to fold. Also Section 5 (HOLD 'EM): If the ...

TDA Rule 44: Re-Opening the Bet In no-limit and pot limit, an all-in wager of less than a full raise does not reopen betting for a player who has already acted and is not facing at least a full raise when the action returns to him. In limit, at least 50% of a full raise is required to re-open betting for players who have already acted. See Addendum. ...

Must be visible at all times, you can get a penalty for hiding them. You'll get a warning normally first but you will get a penalty if you keep hiding them in most places. In general I'll ask a player once to move their large chips out in front of their stack, after that I'll call floor if they don't. You as a player have the entitlement to know what size ...

From Robert's Rules of Poker: "Deliberately acting out of turn will not be tolerated. A player who checks out of turn may not bet or raise on the next turn to act. A player who has called out of turn may not change his wager to a raise on the next turn to act. An action or verbal declaration out of turn is binding unless the action to that player is ...

I am a little confused about your described hand action. The fact that you use A, B, and C to denote players implies to me that they're acting in that alphabetical order. If A bets 1000 and B calls 1000, then C calls all-in for 500, there's no reason for A to fold, because he owes no additional money to stay in the hand. Can you please clarify that action? ...

It seems quite plain to me that the sequence of events it crucial to resolving this situation. The fact that villains hands is mucked, and that a live hand is in play means Hero should be awarded the pot. It seems irrelevant to me that the Hero's four hole cards aren't all exposed. It also seems disingenuous that the game runner should award himself half ...

The pot belongs to player 2, and he can claim it with his face-down cards. However, called hands may be shown on request, so if either player asks the dealer to show the other hand, he will (if it is retrievable). In this situation, it would generally be considered rude to ask. Also note that player 2 asks at his own risk--since he is the apparent winner, ...

Player three wins the money from the other players that match player three's money. In this case player three is going to get the main pot, which is seventy five. That is twenty five from player one, twenty five from player two and player three's original betting. Player one or two only wins the seventy five in the main pot if he can show down a better ...

The button is dead for the next hand. Easiest way for you to see is for me to show you an example. Table looks like this before player busts: Player 1 is button Player 2 is SB Player 3 is BB Player 4 Player 5 Table after Player 2 busts: Player1 Dead button is moved to where player 2 sat(you can just leave it with Player 1) Player 3 is SB Player 4 is ...

If they have cards but no money left they're all in and thus the other player cannot bet more to make them fold. Whatever money was in the pot before the other player bet is all the money the person with trips can win. The player without any money left cannot be bet out of the hand. Run the cards out and see who has the best hand, if trips person ends up ...

TL;DR A side pot is a pot when certain players have no participation due to lacking the required amount of chips. It is the way to accept bets when players have different chips amounts. This situation can only occur when involved active players are all-in or under special circumstances in the table rules or online poker services. Disclaimer: With such ...

Dealer's hand is flush, K-J-8-5-2. 4th hand (winner) is a full house, aces over nines. Dealer beats everything else given. 4th hand: Full House - Wins A⋄A♣A♥9⋄9♠ Dealer: Flush - Second 2⋄5⋄8⋄J⋄K⋄

I find the simplest way to remember the side-pot rules (at least an equivalent version of them...your naming conventions may vary as TacticalCoder remarked). Whenever a player goes all-in a side pot is immediately created and the portion of any players total bet (past or future) in excess of the total bet of the all-in player becomes a bet in the side-pot (...
