SPEED POKER

Speed Poker is a fast-paced cash game format that will keep your table action exciting at all times. In this game, you join a large pool of players and compete with different players at every hand. Unlike the standard poker game wherein you play with fixed opponents, it immediately transfers you to another table when you click “Speed Fold”.

  • What is the use of the speed fold button?
    Clicking on the speed fold button allows you to fold and move to a new hand. The player can use speed fold button at any point in a hand as long as they are facing a bet. The other players on the table will still see you visually seating on the seat while you already play at another table that time.
  • What happens when I'm in a sit-out mode?
    When you go need to sit out, you will be moved into a separate empty table and sits there alone with the “I am back” button displayed.
  • How does the seating position in a Speed Poker game work?
    In joining a Speed Poker game, most of the time you'll be seated in the big blind position. When you move into another table the big blind will go to the player who has gone the longest without posting it. All other seating positions are random.
  • Will I be able to observe a Speed Poker game?
    Everytime you fold a hand, you will be seated into another table and the opponents will change. Therefore, opponents are not constantly seated at the same table for you to be able to observe them.
SIX PLUS HOLDEM

“Six Plus Hold’em” is basically a new game type following the same concept with Texas Hold’em game type but with a twist. In this new game, the standard deck of 52 cards is reduced to 36, removing all cards with the values of 2, 3, 4, and 5. This makes the value of 6 being the lowest and A being the highest. It also follows a different hand strength hierarchy.

*The hand A6789 is the weakest straight, AKQJT is the strongest straight, Three of a kind beats a straight, and Flush beats a Full house.

HAND
(From highest to lowest)
DESCRIPTION
Royal Flush Straight flush from 10 to the ace.
Example: 10S, JS, QS, KS, AS
Straight flush Straight with all five cards of the same suit.
Example: 7D, 8D, 9D, 10D, JD
Four of a kind Four cards of the same rank. Suit is irrelevant.
Example: JC, JD, JH, JS
Flush Five cards of the same suit. When more than one flush is competing,
the one with the highest card wins.
Example: AS, 5S, 7S, 9S, JS
Full house Three cards of one rank together with two cards of another rank.
When more than one full house is competing,
the one with the highest ranking group of three wins.
Example: QH, QS, KD, KC, KH
Three of a kind Three cards of the same rank.
Example: KH, KD, KC
Straight Five cards in sequence. When more than one straight is competing,
the one with the highest card wins. An ace can be taken as either high or low
(but not both high and low in the same hand).
Example: 8, 9, 10, J, Q; suit is irrelevant.
Two pair Any two cards of one rank together with two cards of another rank.
When more than one hand has two pairs of the same rank,
the hand with the highest card outside the paired cards wins.
Example: JC, JH, QS, QD
One pair Two cards of the same rank. In case two hands have pairs, the highest pair wins.
When more than one hand has a pair of the same rank,
the hand with the highest card outside the pair wins.
Example: 10C, 10S
High card When players have none of the above, the hand with the highest card wins.

 

TEXAS HOLD’EM

Texas Hold’em is a game format with up to 10 players (plus a virtual dealer) sitting at a table. You will see avatars representing the players. In front of one of the players is a button with a "D" on it which is called the dealer button. The dealer button moves one position to the left before each game round. This button originates from when players in the group took turns to deal the cards. In our poker room, there is a virtual dealer who does the actual dealing (sitting in the middle of the left side of the table, behind the big box of chips). The virtual dealer does not participate in the game in any way other than dealing cards.

The Game Round
This is how the game round goes (examples shown are for limit poker):

  • Blinds
    First, the two players directly to the left of the dealer button (not the virtual dealer) must post "blinds", that is to place a bet before getting cards. This is to ensure that every winning hand wins some money. Since the dealer button moves on every game round, everyone has to post blinds at some point in the game. The player to the immediate left of the dealer button posts the "small blind," equal to half of the minimum stake. The player to the left of the small blind posts the "big blind," equal to the amount of the minimum stake.
  • Pocket Cards
    After the blinds, first cards are dealt. Every player gets two cards face down. These are called pocket cards.
  • Bet round 1
    Betting begins with the player immediately to the left of the big blind and continuing in a clockwise direction around the table. Every player can fold, call or raise. Raising is possible by the lower table stake ($5 in a $5/$10 game) only. Betting is explained in more detail below.
  • The Flop Cards
    Now three cards are dealt face up in the middle of the table. These cards are called the flop cards. These are "community" cards and can be used by all the players to make up their hand.
  • Bet round 2
    Second round of betting follows. This is carried out exactly as the first betting round.
  • The Turn Card
    After the second round of betting, a fourth "community" card is dealt face up in the middle of the table. This is called the "Turn card". It is followed by a third round of betting.
  • Bet round 3
    This round, again, is carried out just like the first and the second, with one exception: raising is possible only by the higher table stake ($10 in a $5/$10 game).
  • The River Card
    Finally, a fifth and final "community" card is dealt. It is called the "River card" and is followed by a fourth and final round of betting.
  • Bet round 4
    This final betting round is carried out exactly as the third.
  • Showdown
    After the final betting round, the best five-card hand is determined. Both the pocket cards and the community cards can be used to make up a hand. The player with the best five-card poker hand wins the pot. Players can also split the pot if they have the same hand. In the rare case of the best hand consisting of community cards only, the pot is divided between all the players left in the pot at the showdown. If you see that you are losing, and do not want to show your cards, you can Fold, that is to give up your hand and lose the pot. Otherwise you can show to compare your hand with others.
  • Start again
    After a hand is completed and the pot taken by the winner, the dealer button is moved one player to the left, and the next hand begins.

Betting system
The player left of the big blind starts the betting round, betting order goes around the table clockwise. Everyone is betting according to what they think their hand will lead to.

Game Actions

  • Fold
    If you don't like your cards, you can fold. If you have posted a blind, made a bet or raised a bet, you will lose that money. But you will not lose any more. After folding, you are out of the game until the next game round.
  • Check/Call
    You can stay in the game by checking or calling. If no bet has been made before you, you can check without placing any money in the pot. If a bet has been made, you can call by placing the same amount in the pot.
  • Bet/Raise/Re-raise
    If another player has already made a bet, you can raise it. Raise amounts are fixed by the table stakes. For example, in a $5/$10 table, bets are $5 in the first two rounds and $10 in the last two. There can be one bet and three raises in each round (bet, raise, re-raise, re-raise). After three raises the betting round is capped and the next card is dealt (or, if it is the final betting round, the best hand is determined).
  • All-in
    When a player runs out of chips during the course of a hand, he/she does not have to fold. Instead the player can choose to be All-in.

    When you are all-in, you call all your chips and the pot is divided into the main pot and side pot. All subsequent chips are hereafter added to the side pot. At the showdown if the "All-in" player does not have a winning hand, both the side pot and the main pot go to the winning hand, as usual. At the showdown if the "All-in" player has a winning hand, the main pot goes to the "All-in" player, and the side pot goes to the next best hand. When several players go All-in, multiple side pots are created. The pots are divided according to hand and order in which the players went All-in.

    If a player not all in at the showdown has the winning hand he wins all side pots and the main pot. If an all in player has the strongest hand he/she wins the pot or pots that were collected until he/she went All-in. Any all in player with a winning hand can only win the pot or pots they are involved in.

    A Betting round continues until all players have folded or called the third raise, or until a bet has been called by all players (except the one who placed the bet) with no raise taking place.
OMAHA

Omaha Poker follows the same principle and rules as Texas Hold'em Poker, but with two exceptions:

  • Players are dealt four "pocket" cards instead of two.
  • Players must use two "pocket" cards and three "community" cards to make their best high hand.
OMAHA HI-LO

Omaha Hi-Low follows the same rules as regular Omaha Poker, but there is an additional way to win a share of the pot.

The Hi winner is the player with the best poker hand, as in Omaha High Only. But in addition to a Hi winner, there can be a Low winner. The Low hand is a hand with 5 different cards below a 9. You must use two pocket cards and three community cards to make a low hand. For example, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8 of any suit would be a Low hand. The lowest Low hand is the Low winner.

In case of a Low winner, the pot is split 50/50 between the Low and High winner. In case of multiple Low hands, the Low winner is determined by comparing the highest of the low cards, then the second highest, etc. If the two or more Low hands are equal, the Low pot is split between them. Because there must be at least three different low cards (under 9) on the board at the end to enable a qualifying low hand; there may not be a Low winner every hand.

Also, a player may use different pocket cards for Hi and for Low, from the four cards dealt to him along with any three community cards, where again different cards may be used for the high hand to the low hand. In Hi Low Omaha the lowest possible hand is 5,4,3,2,A of any suits (flushes and straights do not count against you for the low hand). Ace counts as high and low and therefore the same ace can be used to make a high hand and a low hand.

5 CARD STUD

5 Card Stud is the simplest stud poker game, which has featured in many poker films and paved the way for many poker legends. Even though it is less popular today and no longer features as an event in the World Series of Poker, mastering the game of Five Card Stud can still be a great way to launch your poker career. In 5 Card Stud, one card is dealt face down to each player; there are 2nd, 3rd and 4th streets cards dealt face up, and betting rounds take place along the way.

7 CARD STUD

7 Card Stud is a variant of the game of stud poker, and until the beginning of Texas Hold'em, was the most popular version played in both home games and at casinos. The most important difference between this and other poker game versions is that when you play 7 Card Stud, there are no "community" cards. Each player has his own individual hand, and in fixed limit games, there are two bet limits.

RAZZ

Razz is a form of stud poker that also goes by the name lowball poker. In the game, players compete to form the lowest hand.
It is very similar in structure and rules to 7 Card Stud. In Razz, seven cards are dealt to each player and the lowest hand wins.

 

A

All-in

If you run out of chips during a hand, but don't wish to fold, you are All-in. This means that you have the potential to win a share of the pot up to and including your last contribution to that pot. You cannot share in any bets added beyond that point. These bets form a side-pot. The all-in is also used for situations where a player in a hand loses connection to the server.

Avatar

Away-from-table

In tournaments, you may not "sit out".

When you are in a tournament and need to leave, time-out, or lose your connection, you are automatically marked as "away-from-table".

Table Position shows where you sit in reference to other players. Knowing the terminology will be key for reviewing hands and situations. Being "In Position" means you are acting after your opponent on each street and will provide several advantages. Table position on a standard full ring 9-handed table can be broken down into a few key categories:

  • Early position (EP): Acts before most players in the hand.
    Under The Gun (UTG): 1st to act pre-flop, UTG is directly to the left of the big blind.
    UTG+1: 2nd to act pre-flop, UTG+1 is directly to the left of UTG.
    UTG+2: 3rd to act pre-flop, UTG+2 is directly to the left of UTG+1.
    Middle Position (MP): Acts before some players, but after others.
  • Middle Position: Fourth to act pre-flop, directly to the left of UTG+2 and 3 to the right of the Button. This position may also be referred to as MP1.
    Hijack (HJ): 5th to act pre-flop, the HJ is directly to the left of MP1 and 2 to the right of the Button. The Hijack is also referred to as MP2.
    Late Position (LP): Acts after most players in the hand
  • Cutoff (CO): 6th to act pre-flop, the CO is directly to the left of HJ and to the right of the Button.
    Button (BU): 7th to act pre-flop, the BU is directly to the right of the blinds. The Button always acts last post-flop.
    Blinds: Acts after all other players pre-flop, but acts first post-flop
  • Small Blind (SB): 8th to act pre-flop, the SB is directly to the left of the Button. The SB posts a required small blind pre-flop which is equal to usually 1/2 the BB. The SB is first to act on all post-flop streets.
  • Big Blind (BB): Last to act pre-flop, directly to the left of the SB. The BB posts a required big blind pre-flop and acts after the SB on all post-flop streets.
    Table Adjustments 
  • 10-Handed: At a 10-handed table, an extra position is added between MP1 and HJ. This new position is referred to as MP2 and HJ may be referred to as MP3. 
    6-handed: At a 6-handed table, the numbered positions are taken out. The positions then become: UTG, MP, CO, Button, SB, and BB.

Why Position Matters?
Position is one of the most important aspects to consider when playing every hand and effects the action on all streets. The way you play a specific hand out of position (OOP) will sometimes differ greatly from when you are in position (IP).

Dafabet Poker has received high marks for its rake visibility. The house commissions between 0% - 7.5% of each total pot.
We do not charge a rake if the hand ended before the "flop" cards were dealt - "No flop no drop."
The network is using a "Weighted contribution" rake allocation which means that players' rake will be allocated
according to their individual contribution to the pot rather than simply participating in the pot. The rake structure below applies to all GBP/EUR tables:

A. What are Status Points and how can I earn them?

Status Points are used to determine your VIP level. As you play in real money poker tables or buy-in in real money poker tournaments, you are awarded with a certain amount of Status Points. The amount of Status Points would depend on how much you contributed to the pot (cash tables) or the value of the fee (tournaments).

For more information, click here.

B. What are Gold Coins and how can I earn them?

Gold Coins are Dafabet Poker’s very own unique poker points that can be converted to cash instantly. Everytime you earn Status Points, you also earn the same amount of Gold Coins. (e.g. 15 Status Points = 15 Gold Coins).

For more information, click here.

C. What is bonus money and how does it work?

Boney money is a type of bonus wherein a certain amount is released once you reached the required amount of Status Points based on the release rate.
For example you received $20 bonus money with release rate of 88 Status Points per $5. This means that $5 will be issued to your account every time you earn 88 Status Points, until you reached $20.

D. Where can I find my pending bonus/es?
  • Desktop game client
    Upon logging in, click "My Account" tab then click Bonus tab to see your pending bonus/es.
  • Mobile game app
    Upon logging in, click “More” then click Bonus tab to see your pending bonus/es.

Note: If there are more than one pending bonuses, they will be released in chronological order, which means that you have to release the former bonus first before you can release the next one. The accumulated Status Points cannot release any bonus if you do not have a pending bonus. The Status Points that you have accumulated before you got the pending bonus cannot release any bonus either.

E. How can I upgrade my VIP level?

All players start as Iron VIP level. Your VIP level will be upgraded anytime once you have reached the required Status Points for the next VIP level.
