"One Chip" Rule - aka the "Rob Rule"

Next to string-bets, the one chip rule (sometimes referred to as the over-sized chip rule) is probably one the least understood poker rules and can easily confuse new poker players. Simply put, a bet of one chip (or bill) is a call unless you verbally state otherwise. If you are facing a $5 bet and bet one $20 chip - that is a call of $5 and the dealer will refund you $15. if you intend to raise, you must verbally state "raise" before you release your chips or move them forward.

On the first round, the opening bet made with one chip or bill on the first round is considered a call of the bring-in amount (big blind). On any succeeding round, the first bet is equal to the size of the one chip or bill, unless an announcement to the contrary is made.

Substitutions - aka the "Keith Rule"

Due to the lowest tournament score being dropped from each player's total score, substitutions are not allowed for regular season games. Substitutions are never allowed for the Final Table.

PPPoker App Rule Modifications

Due to certain restrictions of the PPPoker app, it is necessary to modify some of the above rules. The modifications are as follows:

  • There is no limit to the number of playes who can play in the tournament.
  • $30 rake is taken from the buy-in (instead of $20 from buy-in and $10 from addons). There is never a rake from rebuys.
  • New players may buy-in to the tournament until rebuys are over (end of Round 4).
  • Each round will last 15 mins with a 5 min break every 55 mins of play.
  • There are no Bounty chips and no points are awarded for knockouts.
  • Starting chip stack amount, as well as rebuys and addons, is T2,000 (instead of T1,000).
  • The blind schedule is slightly different from our regular schedule and is available in the app.
  • The payout schedule is slightly different from our regular payout and is available in the app.
  • Final Table will begin with two tables of 5 and will condense to a single table of 9 once the first player is knocked out.
  • Final Table eligible players will all start with T10,000.
  • Final Table rounds will be 20 mins long using the deep stack blind schedule available in the app.
  • Final Table eligible players will receive a single Pchip to register for the table. Any payouts recieved via the app will be adjusted after the tournament and regular payouts will be completed via Venmo.
