At the tables

  Seating at tables is first come first choice
All players will begin with 2000 in chips (plus early chip if applicable, drink chips, etc)
  Cards must remain on or over the table at all times -you may not hide your cards from other players
ALL Chips must remain on the table and be visible to all players
At the beginning of play each person draws one (1) card; the high card is the dealer.
cut must always be offered to the player behind the dealer
Once a player's hand touches the muck that hand is folded
no time may a player expose their hand before ALL betting is complete or their hand will be considered mucked, even during heads up.
If a player's cards aren't "protected" and another card comes into contact with them, that hand is now mucked
If a player is absent during a deal they will receive cards but their hand will be folded when the action gets to them-even if they are the BB and there has been no raise
If while dealing a card is accidentally exposed that card will become the burn card. Dealing will continue and the last card will be given to the player whose card was exposed.
If the first card off the deck is exposed, it's a misdeal. If more than one card is exposed, it's a misdeal, If a player is dealt more than two cards, the entire hand is a misdeal and all bets are returned to players, regardless of when the mistake is discovered
The player to the dealers left is the small blind (SB), the second player is the big blind (BB)

Any bet must be at least the BB
Once a raise occurs all subsequent bets for that round must be of equal or greater amount
Check raising is allowed
All bets should be placed neatly in front of the player and remain there until all betting for a round is over.
No SPLASHING the pot -anyone splashing the pot will lose any chips bet.
No acting out of turn. Anyone acting out of turn will leave the chips in the pot and lose them.
No STRING bets-all bets must be one action. The exception is if a player declares "Raise" and only matches the bet up to that point. They may then go back for the raise amount.
When a player has no chips left they must leave the table in a timely manner OR buy a round before the next hand is dealt.
