Tournament Rules Links From Around the World

(1/5) > >>

Thought I'd put together a list of links pertaining to tournament rules from around the world. There always seem to be questions as to what rule should apply to which situation and what would the ruling be if you were the TD. Being that the TDA is becoming a worldwide body and many users of the forum are of different linguistic backgrounds, I thought this might be helpful. Maybe MikeB will even make it a sticky :)

I have been looking for the old Hilton Book of Poker Rules.  Would anyone know where I can find a copy or a link online?

Using Google I found several links to the Hilton Poker Book or Hilton Poker Rules or Las Vegas Hilton Poker ....  Unfortunately, each and every one that I tried was no longer active.  Since Bob Ciaffone is generally regarded as the author of the Las Vegas Poker Rule Book, perhaps he has some ideas.  You can try his website at:  ""
