The Official Poker Rankings is a free online website dedicated to online poker tournaments and player rankings. The site includes information on poker tournament results, online poker site ratings, and live poker streaming. Unlike other sites that only give rankings and information about individual players, the Official Poker Rankings website also contains information about poker sites.
Since poker is now an international sport, it is important for it to have a standard set of rules. The rules for poker tournaments are published by the professional Tournament Directors Association, or Poker TDA, which was founded by poker players Matt Savage, Linda Johnson, and David Lamb in 2001. The association has more than 2,500 members in 63 countries. Many of them are poker tournament directors and managers at live poker rooms, circuits, and independent poker tournaments. Among them is WSOP Tournament Director Jack Effel.
In an official poker tournament, one player is designated as the dealer. The dealer is the person who deals the cards to players. If someone is absent, they must remain at their seat until the first card is dealt. If they are not, their hand is considered dead. As such, they should not ask other players to fold. The dealer can count the chips on the table, as can their opponents.
In addition to being polite to your opponents, you should also keep in mind that you will likely spend several hours playing with the same people. If you like the other players, it is easier to play with them. In addition, it’s easier to extract monetary value from them.
