The 8 hand game notes WeatherwLOLZ      7/2/2011 23:48


If you plan on playing any of the 8 hand games in pogo (which are usually at the :45 spots during the evening hours or before big event tourneys) here are a couple things you may want to be aware of as a player.

1) Each hand must be kept track of BY THE PLAYERS at the table. Preferably this is done by saying the number of the hand as the cards are being dealt. If you lose count (which happens every so often) the blind bets may give you an indication (as will the "announcer's" commentary...the guy who says SHUFFLE UP AND DEAL, LETS PLAY SOME POKER, LAST HAND AT THIS BLIND, POSSIBLE STRAIGHT and all that crap lol). The blind rounds each last for 5 hands, so when the blind goes up and sum1 puts out 200 and sum1 puts out 400, it would be the 6th hand.

2) Because of these blinds and because of the nature of pogo, the game does not stop itself after the 8th hand, and blinds will be posted immediately if players do not note the chip counts (which is difficult to do since they only appear for literally a second or two). As a player, if you want to determine the exact chip count between players, you'll have to add the bet that each person placed back into their chip stack.

From now on, TDs will try to be at table to see the final chip counts as watchers...the watchers freeze but chip counts are shown at the beginning of each hand so they can tell exactly who won, as can any watcher.

Thanks all, and see ya at the tables.
