Cash Game Rules
Cash Game Rules
All tournament rules applying to gameplay and etiquette still apply, but here a few that are specific for cash games:
1) Buy in minimum is $20.00. There is no maximum.
2) Blinds: $0.50/$1.00. Small bet is $1.00. Big bet is $2.00.
3) In a limit game, there are a maximum of 3 raises allowed in any round of betting. Unlimited raising is allowed in heads-up play. This applies any time the action becomes heads-up before the raising has been capped. Once the raising is capped on a betting round, it cannot be uncapped by a subsequent fold that leaves two players heads-up.
4) In a limit game, an all-in wager of less than half a bet does not reopen the betting for any player who has already acted. The next player may either fold, call, or complete the wager. An all-in wager of half a bet or more is treated as a full bet, and the next player may fold, call, or make a full raise. If an all-in wager is a raise, but of an amount too small to qualify as a raise, it still acts as a raise and reopens the betting.
1) Buy in minimum is $10.00. Buy in maximum is $25.00
2) Blinds: $0.25/$0.50
3) In a no-limit game, a player may reload up to $25 if they fall below $10 in chips.
4) In a no-limit game on an initial action, a bet of a single chip or bill without comment is considered to be the full amount of the chip or bill allowed. However, a player acting on a previous bet with a larger denomination chip or bill is calling the previous bet unless this player makes a verbal declaration to raise the pot. (This includes acting on the forced bet of the big blind.)
5) In a no-limit game, if there is an all-in bet and a call, the players may turn their cards face up, but are not required to do so.
6) In a no-limit game, if a player makes any aggressive forward movement while holding chips, that player will be required to bet the chips he is holding. However, a player who says "raise" is allowed to continue putting chips into the pot with more than one move; the wager is assumed complete when the player’s hands come to rest outside the pot area.
7) Except during heads-up play, if a player intentionally reveals his/her hole cards during play, that hand will be ruled dead and the player will forfeit any chips put into the pot.
8) In a no-limit game, because the amount of a wager has such a wide range, a player who has taken action based on a gross misunderstanding of the amount wagered needs some protection. Any claim of not understanding the amount wagered will be allowed if the caller has put less than eighty percent of that amount into the pot.
9) In a no-limit game, dealing twice (or three times) is permitted.
1) If a player is away from the table when it is their turn to post a blind, the next player will be required to post the blind.
2) A player who misses any or all blinds can resume play by either posting all the blinds missed or waiting for the big blind. If you choose to post the total amount of the blinds, an amount up to the size of the large blind bet is live. The remainder is taken by the dealer to the center of the pot and is not part of your bet. When it is your next turn to act, you have the option to raise.
3) Players may not remove a portion of their chips from the table unless they cash out and leave the game.
4) A player may change tables, but this may only be done once. At this time, a player may pocket whatever money they have and rebuy for any amount allowed by the rules. Afterwards, that player may only leave the table if they plan to leave for the evening.
5) All players will be asked to change cash for chips before the game begins.
6) If a player wishes to reload, they may either buy more chips from the house or buy chips from another player. Players may also use cash to bet.
7) Players may not reload during a hand. All reloading must be done between hands.
8) Players may not share chips with one another. If a player goes broke during a hand, please buy more chips or leave the table.
9) During showdown, if a player is shown a superior hand, he is not required to reveal his cards.
10) An uncalled winning hand may expose a single hole card without revealing the other hole card.
11) During showdown, a player must reveal both of his/her hole cards in order to win a pot. The only exception to this is if a player declares that he/she is playing the board. However, if the player pushes their cards towards the muck before stating this, he/she relinquishes all claim to the pot.
12) A player who is reloading may "play behind" only for the amount of purchased chips while awaiting their arrival. The amount in play must be announced to the table. The player may request to be dealt in before the chips have arrived, however he/she must place the appropriate number of chips into the pot once they have arrived, even if the player has already been shown a superior hand at showdown.
13) Players should not discuss or otherwise influence the hand-in-progress after folding, nor should players advise other players how to play a hand.
14) Tossing or pushing cards towards the muck is a fold. No hand which has been mucked, even accidentally, may be retrieved.
15) During showdown, the last player to take aggressive action by a bet or raise should show his/her hand first. If everyone checks, or is all-in, the player who acted first should show first. In order to speed up the game, a player holding a probable winner is encouraged to show the hand without delay. If there is a side pot, players involved in the side pot should show their hands before anyone who is all-in for the main pot .
16) Please ask the house for a ruling in the event of a disagreement. All rulings made by the house are final and may not be challenged. The house will attempt to make decisions in the spirit of fairness, even if a strict interpretation of the rules may indicate a different ruling.

Limit vs. No-Limit
Guys, please if you RSVP yes for the next game, let me know if you will be sitting at the limit table or the no-limit table (assuming we have both). It will let me know how to arrange things. Thanks.
