RULE NUMBER ONE!
There is absolutely NO WAGERING, or GAMBLING of any kind allowed during our public events. Please keep all money off the table at all times. Canadian laws strictly prohibit playing for value (money). Any player caught wagering for money, chips or anything of value during play (discussing money games also applies here) will be terminated from the league. There are no exceptions! Players may NOT appeal this decision.
Our poker games are always FREE to play, for CUSTOMERS of our Host Venues. All players are encouraged to patronize the places where they play. They are the reason you have free poker game. Please support them.
Your tournament directors do their best to maintain the quality and integrity of the game at all times. However, they are people first. They can, and do, make mistakes. Please show respect for their decision. This is a fun league and we want to keep it that way.
All players should demonstrate basic respect for each other, the tournament directors, venue staff and the game. Disruptive or abusive behavior will not be tolerated. Inappropriate behavior like throwing cards/chips, arguing, excessive cursing, cheating etc., may result in the player being removed from the tournament and/or from the league.
Profanity is actively discouraged during our public events. We want our venues to ENJOY the "poker element," not regret it. Remember, some of our venues do NOT permit this kind of language as a rule.
Please do not coach a player who is in a hand. One player per hand ONLY. PLease refrain from being critical of another player's style of play. We're all here to have fun. If and WHEN you get beat on the river, remember that it is part of poker and not an excuse for poor sportsmanship.
Do not Splash the pot.
Verbal calls are both REQUIRED and BINDING in our league.
This helps everyone understand the intended action and also helps prevent string betting.
No "Rabbit Hunting". It slows down the game and doesn't change the hand played. Never "Hunt the muck" it is considered cheating. This is a gentleman's game. Please treat it like one.
