First it is necessary to put in agreement on the rules to continue to avoid understood villains and not to spend bad moments.

It is important to establish which the number of letters to using, what plays are valid and which are not, if they are going to be used or not jokers, the amount of the rest and of the stakes, etc.

Once established clear rules, every player will be located in the table and there will be chosen the one that will distribute the letters.

The chosen one to distribute, shuffles the cards and one gives them to cut the player of his right. The player who cuts neither can take five letters or less, nor can leave five letters or less.

Five letters are distributed to every player beginning for the one that is to the left of whom it distributes. Every assessor can do it since wish: of one in one, of two in two, of three in three, first three and then two, etc. It is necessary to have present that cannot change the way of distributing inside the same round, that is to say, all the players it is necessary to give them the letters in the same way and following an order.

As soon as all the players have his letters, each one will look theirs to study his play and for shifts, beginning for the player of the left side of the assessor, will say if it wants to play or to happen.

As soon as a player opens the bets, others already will not be able to happen(pass), only they will be able to be equal or to increase the stakes

As soon as they all have been equal or increased the stake, (or they have moved back) the assessor will give the letters to the players who request a change with the aim to improve his initial play. Every player can discard and to change one, two, three, four or his five letters. The discarded cards and changes of letters are not obligatory. If a player does not discard it is said that ” it is served “.

From here the final round of stakes begins, being able every player happen or envidar until one opens the game. Once established all the stakes show themselves the plays, desire the one that has the major one. In case they all happen and nobody opens the game, the letters appear and there wins the one who had the major play.

If a player realizes a stake and nobody equalizes it, gains the play without need to show his letters. This is because not to equalize(not to agree upon) at least a stake is equivalent to move back.

Fresh off another successful cycle of the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP), PokerStars made another big announcement on Tuesday. U.K. poker pro Liv Boeree was named the newest member of Team PokerStars Pro a few months after leaving UB.com.

Boeree became one of the game’s hottest commodities after winning the PokerStars European Poker Tour (EPT) San Remo Main Event in April for $1,698,000. Media and fans have become taken by not only her stunning looks, but also her academic background. Boeree earned a degree in astrophysics from the University of Manchester before committing to poker full-time.

Her poker career got started when she was selected as one of five contestants in the reality TV show “Ultimatepoker.com Showdown” and she has since worked as a presenter at the World Series of Poker (WSOP), WSOP Europe, and European Poker Tour (EPT). On the felt, Boeree’s biggest accomplishments aside from her San Remo title include a victory at the 2008 Ladbrokes European Ladies Championships for $30,000 and a 37th place finish at the 2009 World Poker Tour (WPT) Championship.

Boeree represented UB.com at the 2010 WSOP, wearing patches for the majority of the schedule. But, those patches were visibly absent during the Main Event, leaving many wondering if she had left the company looking for greener pastures. Sure enough, Boeree officially parted ways with UB.com in August and it was only a matter of time before one of the major online poker sites grabbed the rising star off the free agent market.

“It’s more of an honor than I can really describe,” Boeree said about joining Team PokerStars Pro. “It’s something I’ve been aspiring towards ever since I learned about the world of poker and I am over the moon to be achieving such a huge personal goal!”

Boeree will make her first appearance as a Team PokerStars Pro at this week’s PokerStars EPT London event, which takes place at the Hilton Metropole Hotel from September 29th to October 4th. She’s had a busy month at the tables already, taking 12th at the English Poker Open and then participating in the WSOP Europe Main Event. Boeree took 184th in the PokerStars WCOOP Main Event for $12,800. She trusts that hard work will help take her career to the next level.

“I hope to grow my game as far as possible by studying and playing as much as I can,” Boeree said. “I’ll also hopefully get to use the wonderful resource of the other Team Pros – some of the greatest poker minds in the game! Hopefully, I’ll use this to produce further results and make the Team proud!”

Boeree joins Vicky Coren, John Duthie, Jude “j.thaddeus” Ainsworth, J.P. Kelly, and Julian Thew as members of Team PokerStars UK and Ireland. All are expected to be on hand for the EPT London festivities.
