Recommendation of changes to Illustrations for Rule 19
« on: June 16, 2017, 11:38:21 AM »
Rule 19: Awarding Odd Chip(s).
F: When hands have identical value (ex: a wheel in Omaha/8) the pot will be split as evenly as possible.

Example 1: Omaha High/Low split. Players Alice and Bobby win both high and low with 2-3-4-5-6 rainbow. Alice has 2-3-4-5-6s. Bobby has 2-3-4-5-6c. The pot contains 66 chips total after being broken to smallest denominations. Right way to split: as evenly as possible; 33 to Alice and 33 to Bobby. Wrong way to split: Divide entire pot 33 high, 33 low. Then give Alice the odd chip from the high pot for the high card by suit (6s), and give Alice the odd chip from the low pot for high card by suit (6s). Alice ends up with 34 chips while Bobby gets 32.

Example 2: 7-Card Stud High/Low split. Players Alice and Bobby win both high and low with 2-3-4-5-6. Alice has 2-3-4-5-6s. Bobby has 2-3-4-5-6c. Alice has high card by suit (6s). The pot contains 66 chips total after being broken to smallest denominations. Right way to split: as evenly as possible; 33 to Alice with high card by suit, and 33 to Bobby. Wrong way to split: See Example 1
