This will be my last thread for a while.
I’m sure a lot of you know how to play poker (I’ll post the rules anyway) I’m sure most of you are also probably wondering ”how can we play on a forum?”
I have a suggestion.
HMF Poker Rules
We have only 8 players MAX per game (it can be less) and one member who will volunteer to STRICTLY be the DEALER. (Dealer won’t play)
All 8 (or less) players will start with $300.00 chips before every NEW GAME — Blinds will start at $20 the first round and increase by $20 EVERY ROUND. ($20, $40, $60, $80 etc…)
To get started: members (no more than 8) volunteers to play. The order in which a member posts and agrees to play will be how the turns will be determined in how the dealer will go around the table for the betting for the remainder of the game.
This would be the order in which we rotate around the table.
Now… the Dealer will deal each player 2 cards right away in a PM in that order, using the shuffle link that’s posted. So, using the photo below, each member would receive the following cards…
- Max Kroon: 4 of Diamonds & 6 of Clubs
- Silvereyes: Ace of Hearts & Queen of Spades
- Nazareth: 5 of clubs & 6 of Hearts
- Puerco: 7 of Clubs & 8 of Spades
- Chef Assassin: 4 of Clubs & King of Diamonds
As we all know, there are 52 cards in a deck…
Using the shuffle link will take you to this page
Make sure you select everything exactly how it’s shown in the photo above. Once it does, hit Draw Cards. You will have all 52 cards shown to you that you will be using for that round (screenshot it) at the end of the round you will post the screenshot to ensure there was no cheating and a new round will begin and as the dealer you will repeat this process.
When you deal the cards, you have the Flop, Turn and the River.
Before the Flop, the Dealer discards (or in this case, would SKIP 1 card) and show everyone the next 3 aka: the Flop. After that, discard/skip another card and reveal the Turn. Finally, the River, discard/skip one more time, and show everyone the following River card.
Before every round, All players MUST put in the blinds (whatever the amount is at the time: $20, $40, $60, $80 etc…)
Playing the game, pre-flop:
After the dealer PM’d the 2 cards to all players, the dealer will give the OK and The first round of betting will take place, (In the order of members I have tagged above.) followed by the “Turn” (one more card by the Dealer will be revealed to the players.)
Another round of betting will occur, followed by the “River” (one more card by the Dealer will be revealed to the players.)
The FINAL round of betting will take place and the remaining players will show their cards and the winner will take the pot. Just like in Poker (when betting) you can Check — Bet — Raise
Please keep track of your earnings, since we start out with only $300.00 it shouldn’t be difficult to do.
The game goes on until all players, except one are eliminated. The winner will automatically become the NEW Dealer for the next game (unless they wish to pass it off.)
WARNING!! Each player has 48 hours to respond for their turn (check, bet, raise, fold) failure to do so will result in you being kicked out of that game and your Current Chip Count (CCC) at that time will be added to the current pot. The game must go on lol sorry!

Suggestion To Dealer: It’s not mandatory, but it’s highly suggested to use the official HMF poker table below when posting the Flop, Turn and River.
I hope we can make this work! Let’s play
