League Policy & rules Update 8.3.13

Notice of Rules & Policy Changes


We are have grown our league to the size and scope where we felt that we need to make just a few adjustments to our rules and policies (in the interest of staying consistent with our rules across all of our poker venues) 

We apologize for any confusion and will have a full set of rules, etiquette and policies on our website this week at

Thank you everyone for being part of our Success!!!

  • Relevant to All in Plays where we lose a player in the Blinds

    Was:  Moving Button Rule           Now:  Dead Button Rule

We are Changing from a Moving Button to a Dead Button Rule:

Specifically this means (only when a player gets knocked out who was in the Blinds, the deal may back up and you may have to post only 1 big blind)  i.e.  No longer will the dealer button continue move forward nor will there be multiple blinds required (such as Big Big, Small Big Big, and Small Small Big)

  • No longer required: Double of the Big Blind to make a Bet on the Turn and/or River Cards
  • Raises:  All Raises must Still be at least the amount of the last raise or bet amount

Which means if there is a 400 Bet on the table, your Raise must be 800 or greater  (and to clarify, the Small and Big Blinds are a forced bet  = A bet,  therefore must be doubled)

  • 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 an active player’s small blind and the dealer button.

*Cutoff Time for Late Arrivals: is 45 min after start time.

11: Face Up for All-Ins

All cards will be turned face up without delay once a player is all-in and all betting action by all other players in the hand is complete.

12: Showdown Order

In a non-all-in showdown, at the end of the last round of betting, the player who made the last aggressive action in that betting round must show first. If there was no bet in the last round, the player to the left of the button shows first and so on clockwise.

13: Dead Button Rules Clarified

  1. Dead Button: If the player in the small blind is eliminated, the dealer button moves to the empty seat. Players post blinds as normal, and the Previous Hand’s Dealer will Deal Again.
  2. Dead Small Blind: If the player in the big blind is eliminated, the small blind is dead and only the big blind is posted.
  3. If two players are eliminated on the same hand, the Big and Small Blinds, then the deal will back up, and the next person will assume the big blind
