Poker Etiquette and unspoken rules

Postby alaska » Sun Jun 01, 2008 1:52 am

I though it might be a good idea to start this thread as a way for other players to throw out some ideas for better under standing the unspoken rules of Hold'em. As an example in real life if you went all in every hand pre-flop youd get a drink thrown at you real quick, and most triple jack players would warn/ban a player for doing so. any ideas?

For example heres a unspoken rule that leans away from proper etiquette: Player A keeps showing his/her cards before folding out while there is still others playing and betting. This isnt braking a rule but it would surely upset some players if there counting on those cards, or if another player wants other players to chase there bets.
I dont know what do you all think? what upsets you?

Threre is a rules regarding "going all" in every hand or pre flops.

Other things that may result in getting booted or banned include abuse of the warning system, going all-in on every hand thus reducing each hand to a roulette game rather than poker

This really upsets player/s who really knows how poker is played.

Bankers = with limited stack after banking, a banker gains confidence to go all in. in real life, either you leave the table or stop playing. we should have a rule regarding banking.
TOUCH ME ONCE, I WILL BE NICE.
TOUCH ME TWICE, I WONT BE KIND.
TOUCH ME ONE MORE TIME, YOU WILL BE KISSNG THE GROUND AND CRY !

I agree with Viper regarding bankers with limited stacks. many players here(including me) are fans of poker and has never played "REAL" poker game (like using poker chips), and we are not dealing with real money; meaning it's purely online poker for fun. that's why we have the " NO SUBSEQUENT ALL INs PRE FLOP" policy aight?

on revealing hand cards after folding: how can you prevent people from revealing their card before folding?
I suggest though that "Zen the great one" would change the format/feature for revealing cards. that is, players can only reveal their cards at the end of the betting. coz you can't really prohibit players from revealing their cards when folding even if betting has not yet ended.

It takes 4 warnings to kick someone out of a game. Now I can obviously see why that rule is in place - but if there are only four of you at a table and one goes all in every hand what can you do??

This one really gets under my skin and i'm a big supporter of warning those who break this etiquette rule.
if they do it once, i'll kindly ask them to wait till the hand is over before revealing, they usually stop, although some take a little more explaining.
if they continue to do it a second and third time i'll give them warning saying "seriously, please dont do that again" or something.
again, warning system comes into play.
and if there arent enough players to warn them out, i'll boot them, but it hardly ever comes to the last step.
I should put something really clever here..

uhmmm. many players doesn't know that revealing cards before the end of betting violate "the" "etiquitte rule". if it's improper to reveal cards when folding even if betting has not yet ended, I really suggest big bosses of TJs would make "/r" feature works only every after end of the betting. Only that will solve the problem, IF it is REALLY REALLY improper to reveal your cards.
coz AGAIN most of the players here are just fans of this game. and most of us doesn't really know what real poker is like when it is played with real MONEY at stake.

In all honesty, If you fold halfway through a hand, it is not possible to reveal until the end of the hand anyway. But if you reveal and THEN fold, thats practically ruining the whole hand for everybody, as they know that those two cards have no chance whatsoever of appearing on the board..

It is very much an unspoken rule of poker..

"Unspoken Rules" are essentially something that is agreed on by by all which doesn't even NEED to be "spoken" about.

Its like saying you can't hide a second deck of cards in your lap to choose your own hand. I'm sure that isn't in writing or really spoken about, but its common sense not to do it.

hiding cards is far more different from just revealing your cards before folding. coz that would be cheating aight? anyway, in games like this where most of the players doesn't know the what's "NOT TO DO" in poker. rules should be set transparently. we just play here for fun as this is a family poker game. throwing out pies beers bombs etc. if revealing cards before folding is violating any rule set in a poker game, then so be it. coz really, for me, it really doesn't matter. unless, players here are like with that movie 21. lol

This thread is not based on Triplejack. It is based on Texas Holdem poker. The thread is also basically for people to "throw out some ideas for better under standing the unspoken rules of Hold'em."

What has been posted so far (that has been on track) have all been ideas to help players understand them better. But a large percentage has been arguments about what "unspoken rules" are.


If the thread continues to go off track I will have to lock it. This is the "The Game Of Poker" forum, not the "Pie Bombing" forum. It is designed for serious talk about Poker in general, not for trying to flame an admin about anything and everything..




Lets get back on track now, shall we?
