Ring Game Rules

These rules apply to all PokerKing ring games and are complementary to PokerKing’s Terms and Conditions. In the event of any discrepancy between these rules and the Terms and Conditions, the Terms and Conditions will take precedence.

Buying In

  1. All games are played using table stakes. Only funds that were brought to the table before a hand begins can be wagered in that hand.
  2. For Fixed Limit games, the minimum buy-in is ten times the small blind. For example, in a 1/2 game, the minimum buy-in is 10. There is no maximum buy-in at Fixed Limit tables.
  3. For No Limit and Pot Limit games, PokerKing uses 3 different buy-in options, Short, Regular and Deep Stack.
  4. For Short Stack tables (S), the minimum buy-in is ten times the big blind. For example, in a 1/2 game, the minimum buy-in is 20. And the maximum buy-in is forty times the big blind. For example, in a 1/2 game, the maximum buy-in is 80.
  5. For Regular Stack tables, the minimum buy-in is twenty-five times the big blind. For example, in a 1/2 game, the minimum buy-in is 50. And the maximum buy-in is seventy-five times the big blind. For example, in a 1/2 game, the maximum buy-in is 150.
  6. For Deep Stack tables (D), the minimum buy-in is fifty times the big blind. For example, in a 1/2 game, the minimum buy-in is 100. And the maximum buy-in is one hundred and fifty times the big blind. For example, in a 1/2 game, the maximum buy-in is 300.
  7. Minimum and maximum buy-ins vary dependent on the table. Any such variations will be declared before you join a table.

2. Players are expected to be seated with the purpose of playing

3. At tables with more than two seats:

  • It is acceptable to be seated but occasionally deny action in certain circumstances, such as being seated to help start a new ring game but not wanting to play heads-up.
  • It is not acceptable to remain sitting out at a table (especially an active one) waiting for one of only a few preferred opponents to arrive or sit in.
  • In general, seated players are expected to take part more often than they remain inactive.

In the event of a dispute, any decision made by PokerKing’s management will be final.

Heads up tables

Players may only sit at one empty heads-up table, per stake level, and/ Table Type (Short, Cap, regular) while waiting for a game to begin.

For example, a player can sit one $2/$4 heads-up Regular table, one $2/$4 heads-up Cap table, and one $2/$4 heads-up Short table, simultaneously. For each stake any player found in violation to this rule will be subject to a 24-hour account ban. Repeat offenders will receive more severe punishments.
