Poker Table Etiquette
Here are some general rules for how to behave on the poker table. Rules vary according to the club, casino or garage you are playing in, and there will be variations. but these will apply to most venues. Always be polite, and; Dont reveal your cards to anyone else at the table regardless of whether they or you are in the hand or not. Don't talk about a hand being played especially if you are not in it. You may inadvertantly make someone think of something they hadn't thought of before and change the play. Definately don't give advice or ask for it either, especially while a hand is being played. And by the same token don't ask the dealer for advice. They won't give it. But if they do, its not a good table to be at.
Try not to take to long in your action (unless its a major decision) and make sure you know what is going on at the table and play in a timely manner. Dont look for cards which have been thrown into the muck (the middle), this is called 'rabbit hunting' and will get you a freeze out of the hands for a couple of rounds in most places. When putting chips in the middle do it in a neat manner so they can be seen and counted. if you just throw them in nobody can really tell how much you put in. This is called splashing the pot and is frowned upon. Only reveal your cards when all betting has ceased and it is the right time to do so. But then, dont take too long or 'slow roll' your hand. This is rude and unecessary. Finally, keep calm whether you win or lose. Its only a game. A really, really important game, but still a game.
