Poker Rules Lesson 2

Did You Know: You earn VIP points for every quiz completed. Use these points to level up and reach VIP 5.

In this lesson, we'll reinforce and further test your knowledge of the rules of Texas Hold 'em. You'll be able to identify when players split pots, and you'll also be able to name the positions of players at the table: "Under the Gun" (UTG), "Middle Position'" (MP), and the "Cut Off" (CO) positions will all be covered in this lesson.

When thinking about split pots, remember that the winner at showdown is the player who has the best five card hand. These five cards can be any combination of a player's two hole cards and the five community cards. Sometimes, multiple players will have identical handa, which results in a split pot.

An example of a 'split pot' would be:

Player 1 holds:

AQ

Player 2 holds:

AQ

The board runs out:

Q26210

If both players make it to showdown, the hand will result in a "split pot," and both players will take an equal share of the pot.

Moving on to the names of player positions at the table, the player directly to the left of the "Big Blind" is "Under the Gun" (because they're first to act in the first round of betting), and the player directly to the right of the dealer is the "Cut Off."

The player or players between "Under the Gun" and the "Cut Off" positions are in "Middle Position." Look at the graphic below to familarize yourself with these positions:
