Proposal: All In the side pot

Create a new rule, called “All In”, with the following text:

If at any time a player bets all of his money on a single hand he is considered all in. At this time the Dealer then “flips” (IE tells the other players) the players hole cards face up for the rest of the hand. If the player loses the hand, his PokerTable status will become “-” and his turn status will become “o”.

Create a sub-rule for the rule “All In” called “Side pot” with the following text”

If, during an all in hand, theres at least two players in the hand that are not all in then they may keep betting (if anymore betting rounds are left) There is a statistic called “SidePot”, tracked on the GNDT, similar to the statistic called “ThePot but only bets by non all in players during an all in hand are added to it. If an all in player wins the hand, he only wins the money in the main pot (IE “ThePot). The non all in player with the either the side pot, if the all in player has a higher hand, or both pots if his hand is the best.

Thats how poker plays out. Bit shocked noone added this yet lol.

Not quite right, I think, to flip an all-in player’s hole cards _immediately_ after the player goes all in—only if someone subsequently calls or raises, no?

Actually, only if, at the end of any round, there is only one or no non all in player or at the end of the last round.

Also, what about side side pots (if two Players go all in with different amounts).
