Official Poker TDA Tournament Rules, Latest Version / Re: 2017 2.0 to 3.0 changes?
« Last post by MikeB on November 15, 2017, 09:48:01 PM »
Brian: There's not an official document highlighting 2.0 to 3.0, but here's a good list, all numbers refer to Version 3.0:

Rules 42 and 43 placed sequentially, to put undercalls, underbets, and underraises together
Rule 43: significant re-wording
Rule 47-A: "...or the player is all-in (Rule 50-B)".
Rule 50: significantly re-worded, with new example to clarify that pushing out all remaining chips silently is all-in if a single smallest chip can be removed and leave the call or more (i.e. it's not subject to the 50% rule). In response to Kenny Hallaert's valid questions on the Version 1.0 and 2.0 language.
Rule57: some re-wording, and "the pot" is defined to include both bets pulled in and bets committed but still in front of players. Also "reasonably" changed to "legally".
Illustration Addendum: Rule 50, Example 4, 4-A, and 4-B

There are some other very minor grammatical changes, but the above are the more significant differences.

Official Poker TDA Tournament Rules, Latest Version / 2017 2.0 to 3.0 changes?
« Last post by Brian Vickers on November 14, 2017, 03:55:41 PM »
Is there a list of changes from the 2.0 to 3.0 versions of the 2017 rules?  Trying to see if I can just give team updates instead of printing all new versions without being able to find the language differences.

Hi Terence,

Both of those links take me to a web page that wants me to install new software on my computer.  Is there someplace where I can simply download the pdf without installing new software?

Perhaps, Mike could add these to the foreign language dropbox location?

Thanks,
B~

OK, so if I follow the links to take the test it'll be for the newest rules?
Yes it is for the 2017 Version 3.0 Rules.
97
It is released, updated through 2017 Version 3.0

OK, so if I follow the links to take the test it'll be for the newest rules? Just want to confirm because the other thread with the list of certified players still is showing 2015 test certifications.

Poker TDA Rules & Procedures Questions, General / Re: Deaf Players

Thanks for all the advice! I especially like making sure the player knows whether an over-sized chip is a raise or call. The one player we have that knows the deaf player does try to motion to him to let him know, but I like the idea of breaking down the chip immediately.

Oh sorry I did not specify that point.

He was a very good lips reader so when a player used an oversize chip, he always looked at my dealer who was repeating to him the action of the player using this oversize chip.

I think he can t understand the amount but just the basic action " call " or " raise " ... I was telling me that when he understood " raise " he was always taking the chip value to make his decision.

Great responses! Seems like the only special procedures to accommodate,  is to merely use common sense.

That's my plan too.

I have a deaf guy in my poker league. Great guy. Understands the game very well, and generally follows the action and knows the blind levels better than other players.

The only thing I have done special for him is, if a player bets or calls using an oversize chip, I'll be diligent about breaking the chip down so the chips in front of that player is the correct bet, making it easy for the deaf guy to see how much was bet, without asking. It has since become a habit for me. I'll break down those oversize bets, even if that deaf player isn't even playing that night! Turns out that doing that makes things easier for novice players too.
