General Game Rules

Individual Play
Poker is a game where Players play for their own interest. Partnerships or any kind of collusion among Players is not permitted.

Minimum Buy-in:
Fixed Limit:  10 times minimum bet
Pot Limit:  20 times minimum bet
No Limit:  20 times minimum bet

Table Stakes
There are low and high bets in each game. For example, in a $5/$10 game, the low bet is $5 and the high bet is $10.

Leaving and Returning to a Game
If you leave a game and return to that game in less than sixty minutes, you start the new game with the same stakes as when you left.

Note: If you leave one game to play in another game and lose, you may return to the first game and play at a lower limit bet. For more information on playing at a lower limit bet, see the section All-in.

All-in
If you do not have enough chips to bet during a hand, you are not forced to place the full bet amount. You must put all of your chips into the pot - this is known as calling all-in. All-in indicates that all your remaining chips are put into the pot. You then contend for the pot in an amount proportional to the chips you put in. The game play that continues among other Players is put into a side pot. The all-in Player has no share in this pot.

Players may only have one all in per day.

To request more all-ins, you will need to:
  1. Right-click the table graphic. A pop-up menu is displayed.
  2. Select the Request all-in reset option. Your all-in limit is reset to the default limit.

Checks and Raises
Checking and raising is permitted in all games.

Bets and Raises
No raises are allowed once the betting is capped. Players may only call or fold.

Blinds and Posts
Blind bets are used to start the game play. The Player to the immediate left of the Dealer posts the small blind. The next Player to the left posts the big blind. The small blind is half of the lower betting limit. The big blind is a full bet at the lower betting limit. For example, in a $10/$20 game, the small blind is $5 and the big blind is $10.
  • When new Players enter a game they are given a choice to post now or wait for the big blind. If a Player decides to wait, they receive no cards until it is their turn to play the big blind. If they decide to post, they bet the equivalent of one big blind, and receive cards immediately.
  • Both the big blind and post are considered live blinds. So, the Player who posted the small blind must equalize the betting once the new Player has posted the equivalent of one big blind.
  • Players who sit out and then sit in again, must either wait for the big blind to reach them again before receiving cards, or post a big blind.
Exposing Hands at Showdown
  • All active hands are automatically shown at the showdown unless a Player has previously clicked the Muck Losing Hands option.
  • All called hands at the showdown are available for viewing to any Player in the PlayCheck readout of a hand.
  • Players who win a pot without a showdown are given the option to show or muck their hand. Uncalled winning hands that are mucked are not available for viewing in the PlayCheck readout.
Sitting Out
Players can leave the table for a few hands by clicking the Sit Out button. Note: You are removed from a table if you sit out for more than fifteen minutes or have missed two rounds of blinds.

System Rules

There are special rules that govern Internet Poker. These rules are in addition to the General Rules of Poker adopted by the House.

All Actions Stand
You determine the action you want to perform in a game by clicking the appropriate Action button. Once you have selected an action, it is final. Ensure you select the correct action.

Coffeehousing
  • This is when Players chat about a hand they are involved in, with the intent of misleading or manipulating other Players. Coffeehousing is not permitted.
  • No chat among Players, that could influence the play or outcome of the game, is allowed.
Slow Play
If you are connected to the system but are not responding when it is your turn, the following rules apply:
  • If you have not placed a bet in the hand, you have ten seconds to respond. Failing this, your hand automatically folds.
  • If you have placed a bet in the hand, you have thirty seconds to respond. Failing this, your hand automatically folds or is considered all-in. For more information on all-in restrictions, see the section Disconnections.
Note: Repeated instances of slow play may be grounds for a Player to be removed from the table. This decision is at the sole discretion of the House. There is a Sit Out option for Players who want to exit the table. Players must use this option to avoid the consequences.

Disconnections
If you are disconnected from the system during play, the following rules apply:
  • If you are disconnected during play, the table is notified via the game History box. For information on leaving and returning to a game, see the section Leaving and Returning to a Game.
  • If you are disconnected during the play of a hand and have not placed a bet, your hand automatically folds after ten seconds.
  • If you are disconnected during the play of a hand and have placed a bet, you have thirty seconds to reconnect. If you do not reconnect within 30 seconds, you cannot rejoin the table, and are considered all-in.
Note: There is a limit to the number of times that a Player can call all-in in a 24-hour period. When this limit is exceeded, the Player's hand folds and any money the Player has contributed to the pot is forfeited.

You must be aware of your all-in status. When you have reached the all-in limit, you must request that the limit be reset. To request that the limit be reset, do the following:
  1. Right-click the game table graphic. A pop-up menu is displayed.
  2. Select the Request all-in reset? option. Your all-in limit is reset to the default limit.


Server, Connection Problems
In the unlikely event that players are disconnected from a tournament due to server crashes or failure at Golden Tiger Poker, the following rules apply:

Single Table Tournaments: (Tournament Tab)
  • Games in progress will roll back to the state as it was before any players sat down at the table. All buy-ins and fees will immediately be refunded to the players' accounts. This will happen even if players have been knocked out of the tournament prior to the server issues i.e. all players who registered for the tournament will get their money back.
Multi-Table Tournaments: (Multi-table tab)
  • In the event of a server crash or failover, the current state of an MTT game is recorded. Five minutes after service is restored, the multi-table tournament will commence from the state it was when the server crashed. Please note that players are not given their money back, and that the tournament will continue when the service is restored. (The net effect is that no player gets his or her buy-in back, and that the player has five minutes in which to reconnect to continue play once the service has been restored)
  • If the Tournament cannot be completed, all buy-ins and fees will immediately be refunded to the players' accounts.
Cash/Ring Game Play:
  • The hand is considered a "No Hand" and all money from the particular hand in question will be returned to the players (blinds and all).
Language
  • Communication between Players at the table is in English only.
  • No foul, abusive or insulting language is permitted. The use of such language may result in you being removed, suspended or banned from the poker room. If you use such language, your hand folds and all your contributions to the pot are forfeited.
Note: These decisions are at the sole discretion of the Golden Tiger Poker Room management.

Multi-Table Rules

You may play at more than one table at the same time.

Note: This is at the sole discretion of Golden Tiger Poker Room management.

The following rules apply:
  • The Golden Tiger Poker Room monitors Players who are playing at more than one table at the same time. This is to ensure that multiple-table play is not causing slow play. If Golden Tiger Poker Room management determines that slow play is a result of playing at multiple tables, the Player is forced to play at one table only.
  • The Player may not allege distraction or confusion as an excuse for errors made when playing at more than one table at the same time. Players are urged to consider the risk involved in playing at multiple tables at the same time. Errors that occur because of multiple-table play are strictly the Player's responsibility.
