All seating arrangements are decided by draw. In Tournaments, position and table are decided by a card draw at the beginning and upon each registration. Cash Games are similar; players draw at the beginning of the game, and new players do so also. In Cash Games, if there are no objections, players may elect to redraw or make movements. Any individual player reserves the right to object.
Sometimes there are situations that require a ruling. Dory will act as the 'Floor' and any decisions are final. If Dory is in a hand, the decision will be delegated.
Rulings will be similar to those dished out in casinos.
This is defined as removing chips off of the table. This is NOT allowed in poker games.
Being able to remove winnings from a Cash Game table and continue playing is an unfair advantage. Passing around or moving any chips in a tournament is strictly against the rules and will see you disqualified.
HIT N' RUN
You are allowed to come and go as you please to cash games.
However, those who hit n' run (win a lot in a short time and leave quickly) multiple times will be not be invited back.
Rules on chatting are loose, and the game is friendly. Please respect your colleagues.
This isn't necessarily a rule, but players are asked to respect others who may have big money decisions.
Just the basic stuff. Don't be excessively rude to the other players, respect the rulings of the game director, don't open your opponents cards etc.
Banter and needling are part of poker but don't get nasty or offensive.
Money must be paid up front for chips. No credit given to any player by the Club!!
When you reserve a seat at a Cash Game, you are expected to turn up. Those who repeatedly reserve and then not turn up will not be invited back.
This is barring any unforeseen/ understandable circumstances.
Tournaments are not currently being filled; RSVPing these is not necessary if you are not sure you can make it. Feel free to just enter.
This is defined as using an underhanded technique to fool your opponent in an unsportsmanlike manner.
Examples; purposefully hiding high value chips behind other chips to make your stack appear less valuable, or announcing a strong hand at showdown in an attempt to make an opponent throw his hand into the muck, or acting out of turn to influence another players decisions.
