♠ Rabbit hunting is not allowed.
♠ Play At A Reasonable Rate Of Speed. If you are in a hand, don’t make everyone remind you that it’s your turn – keep up with the action so the game keeps moving. When deliberating a hand, please take a necessary but reasonable amount of time. Do your best to keep the game moving.
♠ Be Polite & Courteous. Sportsmanship and common courtesy will make for a much more enjoyable experience for both players and staff. Taking your time to reveal a winning hand or “Slow Rolling” as to taunt the other players at the table is the epitome of poor sportsmanship.
♠ Act In Turn. Whether in folding, calling or leaving your seat before it is your turn to act should be avoided as much as possible as it reveals important information to players still in the hand.
♠ Showing Your Cards. Like playing out of turn, revealing your cards prematurely or showing your cards to others can potentially affect the outcome of a hand.
♠ Discarding Your Hand. When discarding your hand, this should be done by releasing the hand in a low line of flight, not at the dealer’s hand or board cards.
♠ Do Not Discuss A Hand Still In Play. Please do not talk about your cards, especially if you’ve already folded. This gives information that may affect the outcome of the hand.
♠ Do Not Criticize Others. Criticism of other player’s style of play is impolite and undesirable. A player is entitled to play the game within the house rules without being subject to criticism from other players. Talk or action demeaning of other players or employees will not be tolerated. Examples include throwing cards, name calling and other such abusive behavior.
♠ Do Not Angle or Collude. Deliberate statements or action that could unfairly influence the course of play, whether or not it influences a hand, is unacceptable. There should be no agreement to check a hand to the showdown when a third player is all in.
