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 ...

This is a raise to 7000. I'm assuming the dealer or floor ruled it was just a min raise or a call? It's a full raise.

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 ...

Hand stays mucked if it touched the muck, which you said it did. If it hasn't been killed by the dealer it can still be live, will depend on the TD, otherwise its dead.

Well on two different tables I think you have to take each table as a individual, independent scenario. It is unlikely to happen but it happens. So for a single specific hand the odds are: (2 / 52) * (1 / 51) = (2 / 2652) => (1 / 1326) Which in percentage gives you a probability of 0.0754% for this event to happen once. From here you can multiple this by ...

If I am to understand your question correctly. You're not looking for names of hands IE Rockets, Big Slick, The Doyle Brunson. You're not looking for names of positions like BB, SB, Under the Gun, Hero Villian etc. You're wanting to see if there are terms for a specific series of cards dealt to all players in the hand. So a name for the hand as a whole ...

Not entirely sure if you are looking for specific hand nicknames or names of the positions at the table. For hand nicknames check this out. For table positions check this out. Hope this clears things up. If not let me know what exactly you are looking for.

The heads up game is much more complex than this. you need to adapt to your opponent. Effective is probably not the right word. In heads up bluffing is necessary. You need to play more hands. the tighter your opponent is, the easier it should be. Better even is a loose opponent preflop and tight post flop :) Also bluffing requires a good understanding of ...

So you've got the question, the answer, and the reasoning behind it. Yes, bluffing is more useful and effective in a two player game (heads-up), compared to bigger tables. The only thing left to mention here is that your opponent probably knows this fact. The thing that can make bluffing in heads-up a bit more "complicated" than bigger tables. And as a side ...

If you and your opponent are heads up, you can say something like "I'm not folding", which basically communicates the same thing (if you raise, I'm going to call), and avoids the rule stated above in Dr.Drfbaglll's post (you haven't stated any action, you are just stating what you won't do). If there are more players in the hand, you should not say anything ...

If everyone is folding to your raises more often than they should, raise more hands. This is particularly true if you have tighter players on your left and action is folded to you. You can either steal blinds pre-flop or win post-flop with a single continuation bet many times when your opponent misses. Sometimes when you have a great hand like AA, nobody ...

It is a split pot. You both have the same hand. Both of you have 5,5,10,9,9 See the 5 card rule.

Create a token that you can use as a "dealer button." Something that indicates the dealer position, and let someone else deal for him (player who just dealt, for example). Poker is a game for everyone. Make it so he can play.

You only have to square the 1326 if you're going to pick a specific hand to begin with. Otherwise it's 1/1×1/1326.

Yes, the more players you are up against, the less inclined you should be to bluff. Not only is there a chance that one of them might have hand, but also even if you know they don't have a hand (and neither do you), they might just decide to float you (i.e. call with nothing to see if they can steal the pot or catch a card). Since there's some non-zero ...

I take it that you are not seeking exactly two-pair probability, but rather "hitting with both cards once each". In such case, 5 cards of the board must contain two of your cards and any of three other cards. P = C(3,1)×C(3,1)×C(44,3) C stands for "Combin".You divide that result by C(50,5) and thats your answer. Please note, the above calculation will ...

AA is the best starting hand in poker. You should always play pre-flop. You don't know what the other person has and statistically you beat all other hands pre-flop. I've never and would never fold AA whether it's a tourney or cash game. This is statistically the best starting hand pre-flop. It doesn't matter whether you're on the bubble or not. Play ...

As krikara said this is very similar to the birthday problem. Which means the more hands you get the higher the probability that this occurs. It is easier to think of the probability of NOT having two identical hands. To simplify, lets suppose you are playing 5 tables simultaneously and each table has 6 people. There are 52 choose 2 ways to make a two card ...
