Exceptions to the value of betting in each round:
A player who does not have enough chips to call a bet is declared All-In. The
player is eligible for the portion of the pot to the point of his final wager. All further action involving other
players takes place in a "side pot", which is unavailable to the player who has already gone All-In. When a player
goes All-in, the pot currently at the center of the table, which has contributions from him/her as well, is treated
as the main pot, over which the All-in player has rights. After the player goes all-in, all the new bets are placed
in a side pot, over which only the contributing players have rights. The All-in player does not have any rights
over the side pot. The side pot is then given to the next winning combination.
On the final round of betting, the player who bets first (or checks first if no
one else bets) is required to show their cards first at the showdown. If they have the best hand, the remaining
players may/may not show their cards as they wish. The aggressors’ hand is only turned over first if he was the
last to initiate action on the river.
As this is a multi player game, the players are expected to play within a set time
frame, the actions during their turn. On thepokerplace.com we provide players with approximately 30 seconds to play
with. Initially the player is given 10 seconds, after which there is a timer countdown, which is displayed on the
table for 20 seconds. The user goes all-in if he has contributed some money to the pot; otherwise his hand is
folded in case he/she does not respond in time.
The system is intelligent in detecting if the player has got disconnected or not.
This means if a players gets disconnected and reconnects back and he has some seconds left for his turn, then he is
given an additional 20 seconds to play his turn. But if the player is not able to connect back to the table before
the time elapses, then the player goes All-in. All-in basically means that the player is in the game, but would not
be an active player (placing any bets). Whatever pot is collected till this time is referred as the main pot, and
the all-in player has rights (if he wins) to this pot only. After this the money that is bet on the table is added
to a side pot, over which the all-in player does not have any rights (if he wins).
