It means his position is on the dealer button (hence the 'D'), which is the best position to have in Hold 'Em and Omaha games. This position is to the right of the small blind and is last to act on all postflop streets.
I am an online player and can guarantee you that every major online poker room considers A2345 a straight. The reason it is so hard to find a citation is because it is considered common knowledge (So if there exists a poker room where a2345 is not a straight the designers clearly just didnt know the rules). Here is a list of reputatble organizations ...
There's not really an "official rules of poker" out there. Asking for a citation for this is like asking for a citation to the rule that states a flush beats a straight. However, the WSOP.com site does have a page on hand ranking : http://www.wsop.com/how-to-play-poker/hand-ranking.asp And in it, the WSOP official site states "In Poker, the Ace is the ...
That's not a -, it's actually the word TEAM very small. Players wearing the patch have pledged to donate 1% of their winnings to Bad Beat on Cancer, an initiative of the Prevent Cancer Foundation.
While I have no experience with any on-line sites, I've never seen a casino poker game where A2345 wasn't a straight. On the other hand, KA234 is never a straight.
There was a lot of controversy around that hand. I think the official explanation from the floorman and supervisor was that as soon as the floorman said "one" the hand was dead. He said "hand dead" a second later, but the time was up when the said "one".... I think this explanation is pretty thin. Friedman said "call" before the words "hand dead" were ...
These are due to IRS regulations, and it isn't taxes paid, just withheld. The players must declare this money as income, less any deductions, to the IRS and then they can have the difference returned to them. For professional players, if they had losses and expenses to offset some of these winnings, they might get quite a lot of it back - even all of it. ...
Hold'em Poker means having the 5 best cards available, your hand + board, and her hand + board. You both made a straight, doesn't matter what u have left over. This setup is a split pot, i guess u mixed something up. She probably had 10 and Ace or Ace Queen or Ace King for a Full House, which beats a straight.
As This article explains -and I remember watching Negreanu complaining about it on the feature table of 2011 WSOP Main Event- there is a rule that almost forbids all talking on the table. "41. No Disclosure Players are obligated to protect the other players in the tournament at all times. Therefore, players, whether in the hand or not, may not: ...
This is a very rough estimation based on this year. 35 levels passed = 70 hours of play. If they played 20 hands an hour this makes 1400 hands. For the last 5 years the number of players is roughly the same so I would guess the number of hands should be similar.
There is no rule about trash talking in the WSOP. As long as your banter isn't considered threatening to another player you can say pretty much whatever you want. It's poker. The only thing Gold could have potentially gotten in trouble for in the above mentioned video is discussing his hole cards before the hand is over. But I think that rule has only ...
I'm going to go out on a limb and say: no, this does not exist Short of hands that are blogged about on various poker news sites, this is virtually impossible. There are thousands of people playing and only a very small percentage of hands played are ever recorded anywhere (either by bloggers or by camera). Even if they were all taped, it would take a ...
I usually find that specialist site PokerTube has links to videos of the major events like the "Big One for 1Drop", "WSOP", etc. Other than that, youtube eventually has them.
It's called a "wheel straight" (every single poker website on which I played accepted wheel straight) and although I don't find it in the rules, it's mentioned in several PDFs accessible from the site wsop.com. You can google, for example, for (using site: to restrict the search to wsop.com): site:wsop.com "wheel straight" And you'll find, among other ...
Depends on the table. The traditional, much more common way currently is to have a hole card cam. This can be under a piece of glass where the players place their cards or built into the side rail. Pretty simple, just a little camera built in that they can see the cards with. The other newer way, which Caesar's use for the WSOP too, is RFID cards. They are ...
This is a great article on RFID There are spots on the table that can read the cards They do a very low power so it can only be read there The cards are not powered - they receive power from the reader Explaining RFID Technology and Poker
So far there are only a few episodes out. You can watch the first one here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAVvDC6Bnyg.
A2345 is always a straight. Online, in casinos, and everywhere
In the thread You linked, there are a lot information about this topic. I try to make a little summary here. Official poker rules doesn't say too much about behaviour at the tables(nearly nothing). There are a document, made by the Poker Tournament Directors Association, that defines a collection of rules to make the game better, simpler and more ethic. ...
