Table Stakes


All games and tournaments comply with the following table stakes protocols:

No chips can be added to a player's stack during a hand.

Players can add to their stack between hands only. While some tournaments offer re-buys and add-ons, these can only be made after a hand is over and before the next hand starts. However, players can add chips or re-buy and add-on during the hand if they are not involved in that hand.

Players cannot take out chips from the table.

Player cannot take out any chips from the table during play until he leaves the game. This rule applies regardless of how many chips player has brought to the table. The table stakes protocols are designed to protect the game.

Otherwise, if player is allowed to put a few chips into his pocket every time he or she is ahead, then the number of chips available for play will be reduced and the action at the table will suffer.
