Poker is a game that is played on a poker table. There are rules and etiquette that players must adhere to. It is important to be courteous to the other players and the dealer at the poker table. However, you should be aware of what is considered illegal or inappropriate behavior.

Poker table etiquette includes the proper way to handle chips and hole cards. Keep the stacks neat and organized. This keeps the chips from falling into piles, which is often considered a violation of etiquette.

It is also a good idea to avoid making fun of mistakes. If you do, you may inadvertently be in violation of poker etiquette.

You should never tell other players what you hold. Do not mention your holding before folding or after your hand is dealt.

In some tournaments, you are required to keep all your chips in stacks of twenty. To count your chips, you need to keep them separated by value.

When you play in a poker tournament, you are required to sign in. Each player must print their full name and WFP ID number on the sign-in sheet.

Before the first round of betting begins, the dealer will distribute the appropriate starting amount of chips to all the paid entrants. The blinds are raised at regularly scheduled intervals.

After a round of betting, the floorperson will turn the community cards simultaneously. Players who have won a hand will not be required to make up the blind.
