Duplicate Poker is a Blast!

I’ve mentioned Duplicate Poker on my blog in the past, but I’ve been playing this more and more in the past week. I am telling you, it is a blast to play. Put simply, you try to get more chips than the players at other tables in your same seat who are getting the same cards and same boards as you!

Duplicate Poker involves play of Pot Limit and No Limit Texas Hold’em under the general rules governing that game with four exceptions.

  • First, there are always two or more tables of players, with the same number of players seated at each table.
  • Second, an identically shuffled deck of cards is used at each table for each hand played so that players in the same seat position at each table receive the same hole cards and the common cards are the same at each table.
  • Third, every player begins each hand with the same number of playing chips, regardless of how he/she may have done in any previous hand.
  • Fourth, the winner of each hand is determined based on the number of chips he or she has at the end of the game as compared with those held by all players in the same seat at the other tables.

Determining winners by comparing the results achieved by the players playing identical hands eliminates the luck of the draw element normally associated with poker so that skill is what determines who wins, not whether you got good cards or bad cards. Every hand can win if it is well played.

There is an interactive tutorial at their website that I recommend highly! And, here’s their current offer to get you started:

Poker Player’s Alliance Update

The Poker Player’s Alliance (PPA) ”… is a nonprofit membership organization comprised of poker players and enthusiasts from around the United States who have joined together to speak with one voice to promote the game, ensure its integrity, and, most importantly, to protect poker players’ rights.

You can help this month by getting out to the local events in your area where your reps are out among the public and let them know your views on online poker. The PPA has published an article that outlines some of the ways for you to do this, and provides talking points on their homepage for you to use in your conversation.


PokerStars Pays Promptly

Just wanted to share with everyone my recent experience with PokerStars. I used the client software to request a cashout on April 6. I asked that a check be sent to me, and the check arrived at my Bellevue, WA address on April 14. The name and address of the company that issued the check had nothing on it to associate it with PokerStars (or anything about online poker or online gambling, for that matter). It cleared the bank normally.

PokerStars continues to accept US-based, real-money players. Their current signup offer: Get $50 more when you deposit $50.
