Poker Rulz

Poker Rulz


Poker Rulz is not an actual poker game - it is a reference to the rules for popular "dealer's choice" poker games (the kinds of games you play with your friends and family for fun).

It seems like there is always somebody who is unsure of "what's better" so Poker Rulz also includes a list of the standard poker hands and how they rank. There are also some "general guidelines" to help newer players.

The current version of Poker Rulz includes the rules for 20 different dealer's choice games including basic instruction on five-card draw, five-card stud, seven-card stud, and Texas hold 'em. Many of the other games are essentially specialized versions of these basic poker games.

Currently included poker games are: 5-card draw, 5-card stud, 7-card stud, anaconda, auction, baseball, black maria, cowpie poker, Dr. Pepper, draft, follow the queen, lowball, Mississippi stud, no peeky, number nine, pineapple stud, razz, steamboat, stud eight poker, and Texas hold em.


Q: Does this include tips on strategies?
A: No, the current version of Poker Rulz does not include any sort of strategy tips. If there is sufficient interest in the application, then future updates may include strategy information.

Q: What about different rules for different tournaments?
A: The rules laid forth in Poker Rulz are intended for basic home games with friends. Tournament play involves very detailed rules for a variety of special situations. These sorts of rules are not currently included. The included rules are intended to explain how to play a variety of different games on your next "poker night."
