House rules

Although poker has a set of rules in place, every casino ("house") has a right to introduce their own rules as they see fit, and sometimes even the rules that may seem awkward or those you haven't seen or heard anywhere else. The important thing to know is that house rules are always number one, meaning that they overrule any general or common rules.
