Poker tournament rules
* The table sizes will be determined by the cleanest division of participants into even groups at a maximum of 10 per table. e.g. if we get 20 people, 10 people across 2 tables. 24 people would be 8 people across 3 tables, etc. If only 10 or less people participate in the tournament, it'll be done at a single table of 10.
* All players will start with 1000 chips to play with.
* An ante must be paid into the pot by all players at the table every round. The starting ante will be 1 chip, and will increase every 5 minutes. The amount it increases by each time will also increase as the game goes on. We may also start manually speeding it up if the tournament is taking too long.
* In addition, a small blind and a big blind must be paid each round by two of the players at the table, in rotation. The big blind will start at 10 chips, and the small blind will always be half the big blind. Similar to the ante, this
will also increase every 5 minutes - subject to manual increases if needed.
* Again, to reiterate, the rate at which the blinds and antes grow may increase during the tournament, depending on time constraints.
* There will be a minimum bet of 10 chips enforced. This means if you want to raise the current bet, you need to raise it by at least 10 chips.
* Players will be moved from one table to another, as players are knocked out, to maintain a balance of players across each table.
* Leaving your table for any other reason will instantly disqualify you from the tournament.
* When it's your turn to take an action, you will have 60 seconds to make your move or you'll automatically fold.
* A tournament may end up taking several hours to resolve, depending on the play. Make sure you allocate yourself enough time!
* Rules are subject to change at any time.
Note: This is not going to be a very friendly game to people with no experience. I strongly suggest heading to the pub in Esterport (v53397) with some friends to practice and learn syntaxes (HELP POKER)!
