    next game we should be able to bet as much as we want so there can be some bluffing.

    Agreed. Perhaps it won't take 3 months to complete if we're allowed to bluff and stuff. Though it was fun to go from being all in at one point with a few chips to winning. :p Epic almost did it back to me too, but the game was more fun at that point when it wasn't just little bets.

    Also, there needs to be an ante. Otherwise you can just fold with no penalty. These can increase as the game moves along as well.

    agreed on both points. part of the skill of hold'em is to bet what you want, go all in, bully the board, bluff. that's where the fun and challenge comes into play. and definitely blinds for the head to head.

    Hooray! Congrats, Sey! :D

    Well fought, epic. You guys took ye time though. :p


    Agreed on spicing it up. When there's ten players though, how many raises should be allowed?

    In a standard game, limit, there are usually 3 raises I think.

    I wouldn't go anymore than 1 raise, to be honest. Keep in mind this game went from September to December with no raise options until the last couple.

    Exactly, that's the hard part for this online game. If somebody raises, everybody else (some who may have already 'called') has to repost stating their intentions. More raises in the one round could make one circle of the table last numerous days and there's nothing you could do about it ... unless you add in a restriction like you suggest, Sey. I can't think of any other way at the moment. *shrugs*

    Perhaps something like the following could work:

    At the start of each round, betting is allowed. Each player should PM their bet (or their desire to fold) to the game host. Once all players have bet or folded, or 24 hours have passed, the game host will reveal the bets. The largest bet is the required call for the round. One raise of this amount is allowed, and should be done in the thread on a first-come, first-serve basis. All calls (and the raise, if done) should be done in the thread, and must be done within 24 hours of the raise (or post of bet amount by the game host). Players who fold after the bet is revealed will lose the amount of chips they bet in their PM. Players who do not call or who do not PM a bet to the game host will be considered folded. A fine of one chip will be imposed if you fold due to time expiration.

    I fold.

    But I like Inty's suggestion.

    I'm not sure I like Inty's suggestion. Especially the part about losing the chips that you put up in the PM. That seems a bit harsh, especially if we're having antes.

    The same thing happens if you bet, and then the person next to you raises, and then you don't call that raise. You lose those chips. It's just moving that from a working system where there's an easy slotted order and everyone is together to this virtual table where everyone is on at different times and there's no slotted order.

    But in a slotted order, if I was last, I could see what was bet and realize that I didn't like my hand that much to stay in. In this case, I don't have that option.

    Obviously I've been a bit slack about it over the last couple of months. Let me get back into my Uni routine in a couple of weeks and I'll see if I can run it effectively again.
