    puupia: thanks! very clear answers :)

    about the straight :
    A-2-3-4-5 is a straight ?
    10-J-Q-K-A is a straight ?
    Q-K-A-2-3 is a straight ?

    i think the first 2 examples are .. the third is nothing ?

    Hrqls: Yes A2345 is a straight.

    You always use the best five card hand from each player to determine the winner. Whatever cards are left over do not matter at all. So in your example both players have the same straight and the pot will be split between them.

    Minimum amount to play in BK poker is the size of big blind. (Unless it has been fixed recently. You really should be able to play until you lose all your money.)

    And about the side pots: you cannot win anymore from any player than you put in the pot yourself. For example P1 calls 10, P2 raises all-in 50, p3 raises to 100, p4 calls and then P1 folds. Main pot will be 10+50+50+50=160. Whoever has the best hand in the end will win this. P3&P4 will also be playing for a side pot of 50+50=100.

    Относно: a few questions
    a few questions :

    can the ace be used as a '1' ?
    i mean : is A-2-3-4-5 considered to be a straight ? (or nothing)

    are there situations where more than 5 cards are used to determine the winner ?
    for example :
    player A has in his hand 2 and 10
    player B has in his hand K and 10
    on the table is 6,7,8,9,Q
    will the pot be split (both players have a straight) or will player B win with his (6th card) K ?

    whats the minimum amount you need to play in a game ? as much as the big blind ? or more ?
    (i am not talking about how much you need to join the table, but amout the amount you need to participate in a game when you are already on the table)

    coan.net: ah, thanks!

    that sounds logical and fair

    so if i save 50 credits for the last game and go all in on the first round .. then i can only win <nr of players> * 50 ? the rest of the pot will go the second best hand (provided they had enough credits to play normally :))

    Hrqls: If one person put in all their money (lets say 100), and then 2 others bid higher (lets say up to 150) - then if that first person wins, they will only win up to what they put in (100x3 = win 300) - which will leave 100 left in the side pot, in which those 2 who bid higher play for that, and the one who has the higher hand between those 2 win that one.

    i am sure this was already asked before, but i cant find it right now

    yesterday i played poker for the first time on here and i like it .. quite addicting :)

    sometimes i see 2 winners : 1 wins the pot and another wins the 'side pot' ?

    when does this happen ?

    joshi tm: You are correct, you never do know exactly what your opponent has in their hand.

    It could be a well timed bluff, and every so often, you will rightly fold to a worse hand than your own.

    But again, over time, a first position raise (on a full table especially) is NOT going to be a pure bluff.

    ...also, good poker players have learned to always mix up their play style or strategy, so good instincts and the ability to read tells becomes very important as well (some people prefer online play just because tells dont become a factor)

    I think some people like to play cards?
    you can place all the odds you want...granted, in the long run, playing "proper" poker will win you chips, but if lady luck is riding on your opponents shoulder....your sunk, before the long run ever occurs.
    Because so many will stay trying to catch an inside straight, or just catch anything, it changes how you need to form your betting tactics.
    the main thing is, its virtual chips meant for fun....so have fun!!
    now....when Fencer finally incorporates tournament play...

    25. юни 2009, 17:20:52
    Here's a situation where this applies, but in a different way...

    You have A J, both diamonds. Your opponent has Q Q. The pot is 150 to start (50/ 100 blinds), your opponent is in First Position pre-flop, and raises to 500. Since it is a full table, and the raise is from first position, when it comes around to you in the big blind (everyone folds, including the small blinds), you just call. The pot is now 1050

    The flop comes Q 5 2, two diamonds. You check, and your opponent bets 300. Do you call?

    The answer is yes. The odds against catching your flush are around 4 to 1 ( a little more), but your opponent is now offering you the shot at a pot of 1350 for 300, which is MORE than 4 to 1 pot odds. Now, sometimes the opponent will catch four of a kind, or a full house, but mostly when you catch your flush you will take the pot, and will win at least one more bet. So, it is an easy call.

    This brings in the concept of hand protection. If you have top pair after the flop, and there are three players in the hand, it is likely you have the best hand, but if you check, people will draw out on you. Three hands drawing is two hands too many!!! So, you must bet a significant percentage of the pot (more than 3/4 of the current pot) in order to drive out the other players. In this case, perhaps an overbet of the pot is warranted, for instanct, if the pot is 1000, bet 1200-1400!! The idea is to deny the odds to the players involved.

    You want to have a caller, but if you can take the hand down now, you've won a pot you could've lost later. Good players take advantage of that.

    And if all three players call you, and one catches a straight, and the other one a flush??? Well, that's poker. You did your job, denying the proper odds, and they caught some luck. Cest la vie.

    On a side note, the bigger the advantage, and less volatile the board, the less you can bet. For instance, a pot of 1200, and you have QQ, flop comes Q 7 2, with all three suits different. Check, or bet a small amount. You absolutely WANT callers here, because THEY DON"T HAVE THE ODDS ANYWAY.

    Hope this helps,

    Относно: Re:

    I think Universal Eyes and Czuch, you are missing the point of Nothingnesses post. Now, it's likely that by using "Never" he is being too strict, but the point is this: If you always play against the odds, SOMETIMES you will win. MOST OF THE TIME, you will lose.

    So, breaking down his hand analysis into a hypothetical situation, let's say you're in a hand, and you're opponent has a pair of Aces. You have a shot at a backdoor flush. (Two Diamonds must come in a row to make a flush). He goes all-in. Do you call??

    Now, 1 in about 16 times, you will make your flush. Some of the other times, you will catch two pair. But MOST OF THE TIME, you will lose. That makes this a losing play, and in the long run, making such calls will lose you money.

    I made the situation more drastic to illustrate the point (I think) Nothingness was making. If you always play against the odds, you will lose money. If you always play the odds, you will win money.

    The tough part comes in not knowing exactly what the odds are!!!!! Some nice guesswork tends to help out nicely, but there I cannot help you...

    In some others poker sites there is a voting system that allows players to choose the best player (#1, # 2 and # 3) based on their own opinion. And then the moderator calculates the number of votes. If all players vote for themselves (# 1) it is getting funny that # 2 they always judge to a really nice player and in the end he(she) is calcuted as the # 1.
    Maybe we should ask Fencer to have something right this here...

    25. юни 2009, 15:06:07
    lol that is still a foolish bet you cant gamble on odds that are that bad 5 and 3 is just a hand you should NEVER play preflop or post flop with a high bet and Ace on the Board!

    Nothingness: if the next 2 cards are 3 5 player 1 wins the hand with 2 pair and if a j 8 comes then player 2 wins with 2 pair and if the next 2 cards are diamonds player 4 wins with a flush player 3 with the pair of aces at the flop loses in all three situations.

    im noticing more and more that the players here are depending too much on chance and not skill. they pray to get that one card when the hand they are playing is unsound and should never have been played. P1 3H-5S, P2 has JC -9H, P3 AD-KC , P4 2D-QD
    If the Flop is AC-QS-9D player two bets 100 player 3 then bets 350 at this point everyone should be folding to P3 Player 1 has no chance of winning the hand. P2 is hunting for a straight and that is foolish, P4 has witnessed a large raise when an A is on the board.. assume he has the A. Dont pray for the other Q!

    In order to stop the last discussions I would like to clarify the following point.
    It was my idea to give an offer of sharing chips in change of paid membership.
    The idea was to see what would happen because in my understanding many players would like to have many chips for playing even if it costed something.
    In the same time I have some difficulties with web-money and rather lazy to have it solved. Besides, I have won too many chips and don't see any way to loose it.
    Please understand I didn't want to begin such a theoretic and sophisticated discussion.
    And of course I didn't want to hurt anyone's feeling.
    I absolutely agree with Czuch (thanks him) and in the same time I understand Pedro Martinez (But I don't need your dollar cause I have mine :)))
    I like this poker club and all its inhabitants.
    I'm satisfied that I had an opportunity to give you a chanse to discuss such an interesting topic.

    Also, like I said before, there is no "ranking" in poker, except for maybe in tournaments, but in normal play, unlike BKR, the amount of chips I win is not dependent, in part, on how good my opponent is, we all start equal every new hand.

    But, now that I think of it, if you do want to have the amount of chips a person has actually represent some sort of evidence of how good a poker player they are, then maybe Fencer needs to show us an indication of how many hands we have played to help us out?

    We both may have 30k in chips, but If I have done it in 30 hands and you have done it it 300 hands and someone else has done it in 3000 hands, it all matters, no?

    Czuch: I don't see any difference at all. The chip count, as well as the BKR, determines the ranking of players. Buying a considerable amount of chips is, in my opinion, equal to buying a considerable amount of BKR points. If people are allowed to trade poker chips or BKR, the rankings will become useless. When I play the top player of a particular game, I expect that the player has proven himself to have the best results in terms of playing that game, not in trading chips or BKR for whatever else.
