What are the current cash game Poker rules

If you are about to transfer from playing friendly poker games with your friends to something a little more concrete along the lines of a cash game, then there are going to be certain rules and pieces of etiquette you are going to have to observe. In this blog we are going to talk you through the various cash game Poker rules you will likely have to observe.

Whether you are planning on hosting a cash game, or simply taking part in one, there are some rules that you will need to note:

Poker chips in front of players in a cash game represent their true value. so a £5 chip is worth £5. If this was a tournament, then a £5 chip is not necessarily worth 5 pounds as every player gets a certain equal amount of chips in the beginning of the game.

In a cash game, players can re-buy and add on chips to their stack as often as they want. However, based on the table blind that is currently in play, there are usually some pretty high limits on how much chips a player can buy. This is to prevent one player from bullying others with a huge pile of chips.

There is usually a minimum buy in and maximum buy in based on the blinds. A good rule of thumb is to have the minimum set at 40 times the small blind and the maximum is 100 times the big blind.

Players don't have to start with an equal amount of chips. It is up to each individual player to decide how much they would like to buy in at.

Players don't have to start at the same time. Any player can join and leave at any time. For example a player can win a large hand and leave the table right away. It is acceptable to set a house rule that a player has to announce in advance of an upcoming hand if they plan to leave after it.
