Poker Etiquette

The following actions are improper, and grounds for warning, suspending, or barring a violator:

  • Deliberately acting out of turn.
  • Deliberately splashing chips into the pot.
  • Agreeing to check a hand out when a third player is all-in.
  • Reading a hand for another player at the showdown before it has been placed faceup on the table.
  • Telling anyone to turn a hand faceup at the showdown.
  • Revealing the contents of a live hand in a multihanded pot before the betting is complete.
  • Needlessly stalling the action of a game.

  • Stacking chips in a manner that interferes with dealing or viewing cards.
  • Making statements or taking action that could unfairly influence the course of play, whether or not the offender is involved in the pot.
  • Using a cell phone at the table.
