As a dealer at a local bar for 40/60$ tournaments, I would consider a player throwing in his card protector as a motion of betting... without any verbal statement, it would count as a bet or a call if another player has bet that street already... This can also be classified as an illegal forward motion especially if the player is looking toward his opponent ...

In real poker tournaments, when the lowest denomination chip is no longer needed, they chip-up all they can and then have a chip "race" for the odd ones. Cards are dealt in such a way that each odd chip has a 1/N chance of becoming the next larger chip, where N is the ratio of the larger chip to the smaller. That way, the total of chips in play stays the ...

It is fair if you are the only one with odd chips at the table - Official Rules The lowest denomination of chip in play is removed from the table when it is no longer needed in the blind or ante structure. All lower-denomination chips that are of sufficient quantity for a new chip will be changed up directly. The method for removal of odd chips is to ...

Yes you should consider limps as action because if you have only M of 2 and he already put 1 BB he gets good pot odds and he is very likely to call. That said with such a low stack you have to take action and if you do not have any reason to believe a lot more people will call you should still go in. If he limps 1/4 of his hands you will get your flip most ...

Your call preflop was good as you had the desired multi-way pot for set-mining. What i don't like is the donk bet against 3 opponents. These types of bets against multiple opponents are showing great strength, exactly what you don't wish to show right now! Give the aggressor a chance to C-bet this pot and some others to call. C-bets are more easily called ...

When faced with what you believe to be a tough play such as this one it is helpful to review the hand and narrow your opponents range. You did not give specifics (it would be helpful to know action), but lets assume this is a 10 handed game and take some liberties to demonstrate. UTG +2 raises to $20 (4xBB) in this spot we can often assume he is playing a ...

The worst case for a possible straight flush is holding something like A2s, AKs, A5s, etc., where there's only one possible way to flop the straight flush. In that case, the probability is one in 50C3, or 19600. The best case is 45s..TJs, which is 4 in 19600, because there are 4 ways to flop the straight flush. Hands like 58s are 2-ways, hands like 79s are ...

There are 40 straight flushes in a deck: 10 per suit (A-5, 2-6, ... , 10-A) times 4 suits. For a random draw of 5 cards (e.g. your 2 hole cards plus the 3 flopped cards) there are 2,598,960 possible combinations: (52! / 47!) / 5! Since 40 of those are straight flushes, the odds of flopping a straight flush are: 1 in (((52! / 47!) / 5!) / 40) = 1 in ...

There are two reason why short stacking doesn't work, and is generally frowned upon by advanced players. You usually pay much more rake. For instance, at a $0.5/$1 table at pokerstars, the rake is 4.5% with a cap of $1,50. So in a pot for $200, the rake will only be 0.75%. In a pot of $40, the rake is 3.75%. It increases the luck factor. With a shortstack ...

Can anyone raise the blinds without seeing the cards? Yes! and if so does everyone have to match that blind to see cards ? Yes! Blinds are bets like any other. You have to call the blind to continue in a hand. You can also raise the blind just like any other bet. If the blind has been raised you may fold, call or re-raise just like with any other ...

Some tournaments offer a bounty. Each player gets a bounty chip, that goes in the pot when the player is all in. If the player throws his bounty chip in it indicates that the player is all in. That might be what you saw happening. As far as card protectors go, they mean nothing except that they protect your cards. Of course there may be some new rule ...

You can always bet blind. This can/should be done on your own turn to act. There are different type of straddles which are blind bets but it does not mean that the players need to pay more to see their cards. It just means that the players that act after the straddle need to match that bet to continue with the hand.
