Hi guys,

I think it miss some rules or some details in the TDA.

Like the rule about " talking at the table " ??
What is allowed or not ? In multiways pot and HU ?

or

How proceeded for a player, out of the tournament area, all-in by/in blind and/or ante ?
Does his hand is alive or not, has the dealer got to open his cards for him to play the hand till the end and maybe double ...

or

Does the blinds were allowed to raise if a short stack shove less than a SB or BB ?

An maybe some more things and details ...

I think that a beginner TD and for players we don't make his job/ their understanding of rules and the game easy !

Personnnaly I know all of that but I ve got to ask to some TD friends like Nico Fraioli, Nick O Hara, Mickael Wesson Milliat ...

Maybe I'm wrong but I ve never find those points in the TDA or in the French Translation.

I apologize for my english my friends and I hope I was clear on those explanations.

Regards.

Terence Bertault

I created some booklet pdf's of the 2015 TDA Rules.

The pdf's include a QR Code that can be scanned by a smart phone and point to the PokerTDA website.

2015 Poker TDA Rules with an index
2015 Poker TDA Recommended Procedures and Illustration Addendum

Print all the 'odd numbered' pages of the booklet on your computer printer and then feed those same pages back into your printer and print the 'even numbered' pages. Collate the pages, fold them in half, and staple them down the spine to form a booklet. This is what the booklet looks like (before it is folded in half) ...




Web Pages
An easy-to-read web page with the TDA Rules
A slimmed down version of the TDA Rules on my mobile site


Good luck, Barry

Hi guys,

I think there s a little error in Illustration addendum. Rule 40-B, example 2.

There are four players left and not three ...

For the raises guys, I think you will have to talk about :
- European raises : everytime the double of the last largest bet
- US raises : raise with at minimum the difference between the two prior bets

I name it like that and in your example you are talking of US raise only ... A lot of house don't use it ... In France for example, it's in the law that a raise has to be always the double ...

Edit : guys, I don t want to be disrespectful but a lot of example in Illustrations Addendum are so bad ... some are too basics and scholastics that there are funny ... and some don't prove that a TD can use his discretion like the Rule 52 Example B ... We can do much better I think ...

Friendly regards.

Terence

Hi Terence,

The double raise is only in France. In the rest of Europe raises are properly made.

Hi Mike:

There are some small mistakes in the Illustration Addendum:

Rule 19: Both examples are the same, only changes the name of the game.
Rule 40-B Example 2 is completely messed up.

regards,

Juan.

Hi Juan,

Double raise is used in others countries my friend like all the countries and Islands in Indian Ocean ...

But you re right for Europe I think, I ve never played in Germany, Holland, Portugal ...
We name it like that here and French named it sometimes like that !

Maybe we call it like to mark the contradiction too ! US / EUROPE ... But now for you and on this forum I will talk about "Double Raise Rule" !   ;)

Friendly regards.

Terence

Terrance,

 If I'm understanding you correctly, it sounds like you are saying the raise rule in France does not allow a true minimum raise. Limit poker is easy to figure and I'm sure you're referring to no limit.
 If a player wagers 100 and the next player raises to 200 (double or 100 more), this is the minimum allowable raise, of course. ;)
 The next player is facing a 200 wager...his options are: fold, call 200, or raise. The question is: how much can he raise? In no limit we know he can put in all of his chips by going all-in. What is the minimum raise he can make? The only answer is 100 more, which would make his bet 300 (100+100+100). I'm afraid that you are saying in France, the min raise must double the 200 bet he is facing. If I'm correct, there is a serious problem in all of France when it comes to no limit poker!

 Before I continue, I'd like some clarification on this. I'd also like to move this topic to it's proper location.
