The etiquette at the table is important
In live poker are no written rules and unwritten rules. The former are imposed by the casino and every gamer should learn before you sit down at a table, while the latter are not official, but are equally important.
We speak of course of the rules of etiquette, etiquette if you will, that every player should follow while sitting at a table game to maintain a polite, kind and, in general, not to annoy other people. Let’s see some of these rules:
Bon ton during the game:
Always keep your cards on the table.
Act promptly on time without taking too much time to make a move.
Avoid comments if you are not involved in a hand. All players are required to pay attention.
Adjust for scanning large denomination chips in front of your stack.
Do not talk on the phone.
Do not do what is called “Splash the pot” (remember the scene in Rounders?), Or throw chips into the pot, making unclear the size of putata.
Do not string raise.
Phil Ivey, master of etiquette
Do not show your cards before the end of the hand.
At the showdown flip cards simultaneously.
Do not slow roll.
Avoid check-hands down:
This is a practice unfriendly to keep at the table and you risk being accused of collusion.
Poker is sometimes made of bad beats. In these cases, keep your self-control, do not swear and do not offend other players.
Is the dealer with respect:
The dealer has nothing to do with your cards right, you know.
Do not give poker lessons:
No one likes to take poker lessons while sitting at the table.
Follow the rules of the tournament:
If you want to go to play, remember that you have to follow the rules they have imposed.
