Just a sidenote - in Pot Limit Omaha, where you are forced to use exactly two cards from your 4-card hole cards and three from the board, QT would have won obviously. In holdem however, one can use 0,1, or 2 of the holecards to form a 5-card combination. I cannot remember where I read it, bu there is a holdem variant that urges to use both of your ...
From my experience dealing it depends. Not only on the venue/event, but on what the player is saying. In the WSOP as long as the player doesn't actually say I have X,Y in my hand and there can't be anymore significant action, I.E. their talking can't effect a player who hasn't acted, it is fine. It's frowned upon, it's considered rude by many, likewise it's ...
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.
I think you'd find that enforcement of this would vary widely from room to room. While it's true that player 3 is the only player left to act and cannot influence other players' action, it's still likely to be ruled illegal. Any penalty that might be applied is likely to be making the player sit out a number of hands. I would not expect his current hand to ...
Depends on the casino/venue/event and its rules. Usually yes and always considered rude....still happens a lot regardless
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. ...
The pot is split to the lowest chip you have in play, typically a one dollar chip. That gives each player 33 dollars with a one dollar remainder. Typically this dollar is given to the player in the earliest position. Sometimes the odd chip is given to the last player. Sometimes the odd chip is given to the dealer. Sometimes the odd chip is left in the ...
Split the pot as evenly as you can; then the remainder is distributed one minimum-value chip at a time starting with UTG and working round in order. In your example, assuming $1 chips are the smallest and D has the button - A,B,C get $33 each, then A gets the final $1.
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 ...
That was the wrong way to do it. It should have been a split pot. They both had the same best five card hand.
