The Official Poker Rules

A game of poker is full of unwritten rules that are important to follow in order to avoid making mistakes. There are also certain behaviors that are considered cheating. While these behaviors are not against the rules themselves, breaking them can ruin the game and make it a bad experience for everyone. Below, we will look at a few ways to stay on the right side of the rules at a poker table.

It’s not a good idea to complain or blame the dealer when you lose a hand. Not only will you be making everyone else feel uncomfortable, but it will also ruin the fun at the table. Plus, it’s ridiculous. Even if you’ve lost a few times in similar spots, you don’t have the right to complain.

One of the biggest offenses that a player can commit is cheating. A player who cheats will be removed from the game. WFP reserves the right to revoke a player’s Player Membership if they are found guilty of a major infraction. Some examples of cheating include collusion and verbal or physical threats. Another example is splashing chips into the pot.

The rules of poker are the same for both online and live games. Players are not allowed to change seats once play has begun. They are assigned starting chips by the director. Each paid entrant will be dealt chips. In tournament games, players can change their positions by drawing the highest card in the suit. The blinds and antes will be raised at regular intervals.
