Poker ethics
Poker vs friends. Any kind of poker. The same as with any other game, is a great played when played with friends. When we play with friends. The rules are often skewed for the benefit of weaker players in the game. The same for playing online games with friends. Altering the rules to accommodate a beginner. Maybe a young person you are trying to teach a game to, all the rules all at once might be too much for them to take in. You may play a simpler game of scrabble. You might play fish with half the deck. There are many thing which can be done to accommodate different things. With poker it is pretty much the same. There are variations of poker which can be played which may help new comers to the game evolved their game. These are the rules the game is played by though and not the ethics the game is played within. These should not be changed. Some guidelines which should be held to when playing poker. Talking about your hand when a game is in play is a No No. The main reason for this is what you speak can influence the game. It can influence the play of other players still in the hand. When you are not in the hand it is a bigger No No to talk about cards you may have had or comment on the plays at hand. Let us suppose you have 7 2 off suit. You fold pre-flop and three 7's come out on the table. Voicing any comment here is a no no. Letting other plays know the fourth 7 is gone can influence the play of other people still in the hand (or prevent them from acting). None of us win all of the time. The statistics say we can't. If you happen to lose, do it gracefully. Some of the abuse I have seen over the years thrown at players that knocked someone out of the tournament. Just leaves me to think, do those people have the mentality to play poker. They may have all the statistics down pat on what hand can win what percentage of the time. The reaction when they lose suggests their mentality cannot handle the same statistics. Poker show. A show is held in the Buddy Up Server in Discord to assist beginners with learning the game. https://discord.gg/3d5H3K8 Players of all levels are welcome to come and discuss poker. The show generally lasts for 1 hour. Starting time: 8 PM UK time. (7 PM UTC) Suggested topics this week. Value of Hands in Poker. Starting hands. Position. Bet sizing. Strategy's. Re raising. Variations of poker. Other topics are welcomed to be brought up and discussed too. If you have a topic you would like some time set to discuss this can be arranged for one of the shows.
