It matters. Assume 6 player sit down at an 8 player table starting at the button. If I am #6 I want to know if the other 5 are going to sit and wait for the BB. If they are going to wait then so am I. It is silly to pay a BB to come in on the button when the button is the next hand. The most fair way is starting at the button and going clockwise ...

Casinos may have different house rules, but the "standard" rule is this: since the hand reached showdown, any player involved in the hand may ask that player 2's hand be shown. If anyone except player 1 asks, the dealer will pick up player 2's hand and make a show of touching it to the muck to emphasize that it is a dead hand, then show it. If the ...

From my experience, it is only enforced that the last aggressor must show first then the others may muck. In your scenario, player 2 would not be obliged to show. Herb's source ( Wikipedia's 'Showdown (Poker)' ) implies that there can be reason to view a mucked hand if there is some suspicion of cheating or siding. Despite this, "players do not have an ...

To answer the question: Are all blinds posted clockwise starting from the dealer button regardless of the blind type (missed or not)? Action would be clockwise regardless, each player who posted will have an option. I have seen this happen recently at Crown Casino (Melbourne, Australia) where four players returned at the same time. Dead blinds will ...

It's statistically impossible for you to reach the long run for tournaments in your lifetime. The #1 thing you should be doing is playing cash games and refining your game through other games. I tell my students all the time to learn a new game, it opens up your mind to new lines and betting strategies you hadn't thought of before.

Line the cards up (in your head) from small to large Add 4 (not 5) and do you get two more cards Paint just memorize 7J 8Q 9K TA Or you can count J as 11, Q as 12, K as 13 and A as 14 If there is just 1 more card then a straight draw Not recognizing means losing some big pots. You bet top pair, 2 pair, or a set big thinking you are good. If ...

A player can only raise if they have been raised by at least a full minimum raise. If there has only been one bet so far in the betting round, it's pretty easy to tell what a minimum raise is - it's double the original bet. It's important to clarify what a minimum raise is when there has already been a raise. It is most definitely NOT double the previous ...

It varies from casino to casino. Typically, yes you do, although some rooms are moving away from that rule or are disallowing players from asking to see mucked hands, if they abuse the rule. Primary source: Wikipedia poker showdown

Just anecdotal but I was playing live at a casino last week and I flopped quads twice and hit quads on the turn another time in a 5 hour session. That probably represents about 160 - 175 hands. Sometimes the laws of probability can seem to be violated over a small sample size. On one of these hands, BTW, I came close to hitting the bad beat jackpot ($250K). ...

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 ...
