Protocols

Hammer

At PokerNation.com, all games and tournaments
comply with the following table stakes protocols.

NO CHIPS MAY BE ADDED TO
A PLAYER’S STACK DURING A HAND.

In a real money game, players can only add to
their stack between hands. While some
tournaments offer rebuys and add-ons, these may
only be executed after a hand is over and before
the next hand starts. Players may, however,
add chips or rebuy and add-on during the play of
a hand if they are not involved in that hand.

PLAYERS MAY NOT REMOVE
CHIPS FROM THE TABLE

In a real money game, a player cannot remove any
chips from the table during play until he or she
leaves the game. This is termed as ‘Ratholing’.
This rule applies regardless of how many chips
a player has brought to the table.
