In order to play CherryCasino Poker you need to be a registered Casino player and select a Poker alias in the Poker lobby. The Poker alias will be displayed to other players when playing poker. The poker alias is unique and will not be possible to change when registered. The alias should consist of 2-12 characters and possible characters are A-Za-z0-9@&._
When you have selected a Poker alias you need to move funds from Casino to Poker in order to be able to play for real money. However, you can always play for Poker play money without moving dedicated funds to Poker.
Select the button Play Poker in the Poker lobby to launch the Poker application.
How To Play
When you have launched the Poker application, select a table in the lobby by clicking on it, and then open the table window, either by double-clicking on the selected table, or by clicking on the “Go to this table” button in the lobby.
When a table window is open you can simply click on any available seat to sit down. You will then see a character in that seat. Enter the amount of Poker real money/play money that you would like to bring to the table and click on the “OK” button.
Click on the SIT IN button when you want to be dealt in.
Before the very first hand is dealt at a newly started table, you will need to decide who will start as the dealer. This is decided by giving each player a random card face up. The highest card gets to be the dealer.
How to play at a private table:
There are two types of private tables, private and unrestricted. The unrestricted version works just like a regular table except that a player has created it. The private version is however limited to players that are accepted by the table owner. You can recognize a private table in the lobby by the small, red padlock icon next to it. When you open such a table, you will be prompted to send a request to enter to the table owner. You can also choose to type in a short message in the input field if you want to. The table owner will then receive your request. If you are accepted, you can then sit down at the table.
How to create a private table:
First select the “Private Tables” tab in the lobby. Then click on the button marked “Create Private Table”. You can then select from a long list of possible table types. In addition to this, you can also choose the maximum number of players, the table restrictions (private or unrestricted) and the game speed.
There are 3 types of game speed:
• Normal (This is the same as on the standard tables.)
• Adaptive (The time to think is dynamic, and adapts according to how people have played previously.)
• Turbo (The turbo tables have a shorter time to think, and are well suited for players that like fast games and have stable Internet connections.)
Tables that have turbo- or adaptive speed have a small flash icon next to them in the lobby.
It’s optional to write a description of the table. The description will be shown in the lobby when someone selects that table.
Just click on the “Create” button when you have chosen all the table settings, and your table will then be created. Please note that it may take up to a minute before it’s visible in the lobby.
When someone wants to sit down at the table you have created, the player must first ask for your permission. You can choose to accept or deny such requests.
Texas Hold ’em
In Texas Hold’em, each player is given 2 pocket cards. The game continues with a total of 5 community cards face up, first 3, then 1 after the other. Between each deal there is a round of betting.
Hold’em is played with two blinds (a bet before the pocket cards are received). The first two players after the dealer pay the blinds. The small blind is posted by the first player and the big blind by the second. In heads-up games, the player seated after the dealer pays the big blind. The first two betting rounds are played with the lower limit while the last two rounds of betting are played with the higher limit.
Omaha is a poker game derived from Texas Hold’em. Each player is dealt four cards (“hole cards”), which belong only to that player. Five community cards are dealt face-up on the “board”. All players use three of the five community cards together with two of their hole cards to make the best five-card poker hand.
The player with the best five-card hand for high wins half the pot, and the player with the best hand for low wins the other half. In Omaha, players must use two and only two of their four hole cards in combination with three cards from the board. In the event of identical hands, the high and low shares of the pot will be equally divided between the players with the best hands. In the event that no hand qualifies for low, the best hand(s) for high wins the pot.
For a five card hand to qualify for low, it cannot include cards higher than 8 or contain any pairs. Aces can be used for both high and low. When comparing low hands, the winner is the hand with the lowest high card, thus 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 is better than Ace, 2, 3, 4, 8. The best possible low hand is Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5.
Seven Card Stud
In Seven Card Stud, players are dealt seven cards throughout the course of the hand, but only the best five-card hand possible for each player is used to determine the winner.
Before a game of Seven Card Stud starts, all players ante a nominal amount, for example $1 in a $10-$20 game. Each player is dealt two hidden hole cards and one exposed card. The player with the lowest exposed card is the “bring-in”, and is forced to make a wager of either a half a small bet or a full small bet (for example, either $1 or $2 in a $2/$4 game). Action continues clockwise around the table until betting is complete for the round.
In the unlikely event that all 8 players are still in the hand on the river, the total number of cards needed for all the players to receive their own card would not be available in a standard deck of cards. In this case the river card is dealt face up on the table and it will be used as a community card.
Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo
The player with the best five-card hand for high wins half the pot, and the player with the best hand for low wins the other half. In the event that no hand qualifies for low, the best hand(s) for high wins the pot.
