Going all-in in poker is considered an ultimate act. Once you put all your chips at stake, there are two ultimate outcomes of this situation — you either bust or you double up. Sure, that’s something that happens now and then, but there are other various situations that we need to take into account when we want to make all-in bets. Answer 1 of 8: Hi, I am planning to go the Holland Casino at end of January, start of February next year. I believe you can join 'sit and go' Poker games. I was wondering if anyone had played any of these. Oct 09, 2018 To go “all-in” in poker means to place all of our remaining chips into the middle of the pot. This can either happen fby making a bet ourselves, or calling a bet from our opponent. Question 2: How does going all-in actually work in poker?

To receive updates and invites to our special events

  1. Floor People
    Floor people are to consider the best interest of the game and fairness as the top priority in the decision-making process. Unusual circumstances can on occasion dictate that decisions in the interest of fairness take priority over the technical rules. The floor person's decision is final.
  2. Official Language
    The English-only rule will be enforced in the United States during the play of hands. English will be used in international play along with the local or native language.
  3. Communication
    Players may not talk on the phone while at the poker table. House rules apply to all other forms of electronic devices.
  1. Random Seats
    Tournament and satellite seats will be randomly assigned. Accommodations for players with special physical needs will be made when possible.
  2. Breaking Tables
    Players going from a broken table to fill in seats assume the rights and responsibilities of the position. They can get the big blind, the small blind, or the button. The only place they cannot get a hand is between the small blind and the button.
  3. Balancing Tables
    In flop and mixed games when balancing tables, players will be moved from the big blind to the worst position, including taking a single big blind when available, even if that means the seat will have the big blind twice. Worst position is never the small blind. The table from which a player is moved will be as specified by a predetermined procedure. In stud-only games, players will be moved by position (the last seat to open up at the short table is the seat to be filled). Play will halt on any table that is three or more players short.
  4. Number of Players at Final Table
    In flop games, the final table will consist of ten (10) players. In stud-type games, the final table will consist of nine (9) players.
  1. Declarations
    Cards speak. Verbal declarations as to the content of a player's hand are not binding; however, any player deliberately miscalling his or her hand may be penalized.
  2. Face Up
    All cards will be turned face up once a player is all-in and all betting action is complete.
  3. Killing Winning Hand
    Dealers cannot kill a winning hand that was tabled and was obviously the winning hand. Players are encouraged to assist in reading tabled hands if it appears that an error is about to be made.
  4. Showdown
    At the end of last round of betting, the player who made the last aggressive action in that betting round must show first. If there was no bet, the player to the left of the button shows first and so on clockwise. In stud games, the player with the high board must show first. In razz, the lowest board shows first.
  5. Odd Chips
    The odd chip will go to the high hand. In flop games when there are two or more high hands or two or more low hands, the odd chip(s) will go to the left of the button. In stud games, the odd chip will go to the high card by suit. However, when hands have identical value (e.g., a wheel in Omaha/8) the pot will be split as evenly as possible.
  6. Side Pots
    Each side pot will be split separately.
  7. Playing the Board
    A player must show both cards when playing the board in order to get part of the pot.
  8. Disputed Pots
    The right to dispute a hand ends when a new hand begins. (See rule #18.)
  1. Chip Race
    When it is time to color-up chips, they will be raced off with a maximum of one chip going to any player. The chip race will always start in the No.1 seat. A player cannot be raced out of a tournament: a player who loses his or her remaining chip(s) in a chip race will be given one chip of the smallest denomination still in play. Players are encouraged to witness the chip race.
  2. Deck Changes
    Deck changes will be on the dealer push or level changes or as prescribed by the house. Players may not ask for deck changes.
  3. New Limits
    When time has elapsed in a round and a new level is announced by a member of the tournament staff, the new level applies to the next hand. A hand begins with the first riffle. If an automatic shuffler is being used, the hand begins when the green button is pushed.
  4. Re-buys
    A player may not miss a hand. If a player announces the intent to rebuy before a new hand, that player is playing chips behind and is obligated to make the re-buy.
  5. Calling for a Clock
    Once a reasonable amount of time has passed and a clock is called for, a player will be given a maximum of one minute to make a decision. If action has not been taken before time expires, there will be a 10-second countdown. If a player has not acted by the time the countdown is over, the player's hand will be dead.
  6. Rabbit Hunting
    No rabbit hunting is allowed. Rabbit hunting is revealing any of the cards “that would have come” if the hand had not ended.
  1. At Your Seat
    A player must be at his or her seat by the time all players have been dealt complete initial hands in order to have a live hand. A player must be at his/her seat to call time.
  2. Action Pending
    A player must remain at the table if he has a live hand.
  1. Dead Button
    Tournament play will use a dead button.
  2. Dodging Blinds
    A player who intentionally dodges any blind when moving from a broken table will incur a penalty.
  3. Button in Heads-up
    In heads-up play, the small blind is on the button and acts first. When beginning heads-up play, the button may need to be adjusted to ensure no player takes the big blind twice in a row.
  1. Misdeals
    In stud-type games, if any of the player's two down cards are exposed due to dealer error it is a misdeal. In flop games, exposure of one of the first two cards dealt is a misdeal. Players may be dealt two consecutive cards on the button.
  2. Four-Card Flop
    If the flop contains four (rather than three) cards, whether exposed or not, the dealer shall scramble the 4 cards face down. A floor person will be called to randomly select one card to be used as the next burn card and the remaining three cards will become the flop.
  1. Verbal Declarations / Acting in Turn
    Verbal declarations in turn are binding. Players are required to act in turn. Action out of turn will be binding if the action to that player has not changed. A check, call or fold is not considered action changing.
  2. Methods of Raising
    In no-limit or pot-limit, a raise must be made by (1) placing the full amount in the pot in one motion; or (2) verbally declaring the full amount prior to the initial placement of chips into the pot; or (3) verbally declaring “raise” prior to the placement of the amount to call into the pot and then completing the action with one additional motion. It is the player's responsibility to make his intentions clear.
  3. Raises
    A raise must be at least the size of the largest previous bet or raise of the current betting round. If a player puts in a raise of 50% or more of the previous bet but less than the minimum raise, he or she must make a full raise. The raise will be exactly the minimum raise allowed (see exception for multiple same-denomination chips Rule 33). In no-limit and pot limit, an all-in wager of less than a full raise does not reopen the betting to a player who has already acted.
  4. Oversized Chip
    Anytime when facing a bet (or blind), placing a single oversized chip in the pot is a call if a raise is not first verbally declared. To raise with a single oversized chip, a declaration must be made before the chip hits the table surface. If a raise is declared (but not an amount), the raise is the maximum allowable for that chip. When not facing a bet, placing an oversized chip in the pot without declaration is a bet of the maximum allowable for the chip.
  5. Multiple Chips
    When facing a bet, unless a raise is first declared, multiple same-denomination chips is a call if removing one chip leaves less than the call amount. Example of a call: preflop, blinds 200-400: A makes it 1200 (an 800 raise), B puts out two 1000 chips without declaring raise. Placing chips of mixed denominations in the pot is governed by the 50% standard in Rule 31.
  6. Number of Raises
    There is no cap on the number of raises in no-limit games. In limit events there will be a limit to raises even when heads-up until the tournament is down to two players; the house limit will apply.
  7. Pot Size
    Players are entitled to be informed of the pot size in pot-limit games only. Dealers will not count the pot in limit and no-limit games.
  8. String Bets and Raises
    Dealers will be responsible for calling string bets and raises.
  1. Chips on the Table
    Players must keep their higher denomination chips visible and identifiable at all times.
  2. Chips in Transit
    Players may not hold or transport tournament chips in any manner that takes them out of view. A player who does so will forfeit the chips and will face disqualification. The forfeited chips will be taken out of play.
  3. Unprotected Hands
    If a dealer kills an unprotected hand, the player will have no redress and will not be entitled to a refund of bets. However, if a player had raised and the raise had not yet been called, the raise will be returned to the player.
  1. Penalties and Disqualification
    A penalty MAY be invoked if a player exposes any card with action pending, throws a card off the table, violates the one-player-to-a-hand rule, or similar incidents take place. Penalties WILL be invoked in cases of soft play, abuse, or disruptive behavior. Penalties available to the TD include verbal warnings and “missed hand” penalties. Except for a one-hand penalty, missed hand penalties will be assessed as follows: The offender will miss one hand for every player, including the offender, who is at the table when the penalty is given multiplied by the number of rounds specified in the penalty. For the period of the penalty, the offender shall remain away from the table but will continue to be dealt in.

    Tournament staff can assess a one-hand penalty, one-, two-, three-, or four-round penalties or disqualification. A player who is disqualified shall have his or her chips removed from play. Repeat infractions are subject to escalating penalties.

  2. No Disclosure
    Players are obligated to protect the other players in the tournament at all times. Therefore, players, whether in the hand or not, may not:
    1. Disclose contents of live or folded hands,
    2. Advise or criticize play at any time,
    3. Read a hand that hasn't been tabled.
  1. Exposing Cards
    A player who exposes his cards with action pending may incur a penalty, but will not have a dead hand. The penalty will begin at the end of the hand.
  2. Ethical Play
    Poker is an individual game. Soft play will result in penalties, which may include forfeiture of chips and/or disqualification. Chip dumping and/or all other forms of collusion will result in disqualification.
  3. Etiquette Violations
    Repeated etiquette violations will result in penalties. Examples include, but are not limited to, unnecessarily touching other players’ cards or chips, delay of the game, repeatedly acting out of turn or excessive chatter.

Poker all in: One of the challenges in playing poker is developing the right types of all-in poker strategies.

A mistake that many players make, especially beginners, is defaulting to one of two different strategies – which aren’t strategies at all.

They either go all in:

1) When they have a monster hand.

2) When they have no hand at all.

Those are both easy tells to spot for other players and if you wind up with a monster hand and a short stack, you will lose your shirt.

Here are 4 of the essential Poker all in strategies to master.

Maximizing the short stack

If you have a short stack it often appears like you have only one of two choices, risk it all or fold and hope for more surety a few hands in.

But what happens when you land a monster hand and have a short stack?

You can maximize it by using the right strategy.

  • Don’t raise on the short stack. You won’t make it and will be forced out of the game and lose your stack.
  • Do call with a short stack. Players can always raise you, but you will have given it a shot and still have enough left to play the next hand.

A short stack should be seen as a chance to play with skill and strategy, not a reason to bunker down and hide.

When to bully

If you are not short and are running the table, take the opportunity to use Poker all in to bully short stack players out of the game.

Even if you don’t have a winning hand, clearing the table of some players will enhance your ability to win the next rounds.

It can be worth it to give a little to get a whole lot more in the end. Bully stacks should be used to gain the advantage.

It can also serve to throw off any betting pattern you may have given that other players are relying on as your tell.

The Cutoff

It is necessary to choose instances when you have the feeling that the cutoff is weak, though that does not mean this play should be attempted with any two cards.

Even if the opponent raises, his chances of calling your all-in bet and flopping something decent are very low – consistent with the pot odds that you would make against him.

At the same time, it is necessary to have a hand with some showdown value, in case he calls you on a draw, even if it is ace high.

Having some potential outs is also necessary for the times that he decides to call with one pair, and frequently, you will have an ace with at least three outs in your hand.

Poker all in: Hitting it right

Hitting it right is the ideal.

This means you are stable in your stacks and you have a solid hand.

Go all in on a call and see what happens.

If you are solid, then so is your betting pattern and you can clear the table of anyone with less than you. T

his is a way to conservatively call a bluff and reduce the competition on the board.

Poker all in: the Stack

Success is always recorded with the strategy when the shorter stack is the button, and with his post-flop raise is putting himself all in.

However, the strategy fails when the deeper stack is the button and is putting the cutoff all in; that is the cutoff has already invested one-third of his stack before he faces the all-in shove of the button.

In most cases, players prefer risking their tournament lives once putting the one-third of their stack in the pot; so this is a strategy which could succeed sometimes.

Poker all in: The Tendencies

The tendencies of each of the players in the blinds should be considered.

If they are aggressive and tricky players; they are very likely to identify a button call and a cutoff raise; quickly taking advantage of the situation to go for a squeeze play.

You will benefit from that if you have a premium hand, but be careful.

However, with the blinds are tight; and with the expectation to fold; you have the opportunity of opening up your range.

Avoiding the tell

One thing you have to practice in friendly games is the Poker all in strategy, or they might be your strongest tell.

If you always go all-in on short stacks with a monster hand; it can be a dead giveaway, and players will fold before the pot can raise you to a bully stack.
