PLAYERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN ACTIONS Action in turn will be binding as well as action causing action.
MANAGEMENT DECISIONS ARE FINAL All games at Texas Card House follow the World Series of Poker (‘WSOP’) rules for cash and TDA rules for tournament games, except as stated on our website or below. Management reserves the right to make decisions in the best interest of the game and fairness as the top priority in the decision-making process, even if a strict interpretation of the rules may indicate a different ruling. A member who commits an infraction should not profit from it and, conversely, a member who has done nothing wrong should not be placed at a disadvantage.
PLAYER ETIQUETTE Discourteous behavior, disrespect towards staff and other members, or abusive language, will not be tolerated, and may result in removal from the club; this includes but is not limited to, threats, arguments, insults, cursing and player recruitment.
ENGLISH ONLY AT THE TABLE Only English may be spoken at the table while cards are in play.
COLLUSION Collusion of any kind may result in ejection from the club.
WAIT LIST Members who have called in or put their name online will have 1 hour to check-in before their name is removed from the wait list. If you have not checked in and a seat becomes available, the next player on the list will be offered the seat. Your spot on the wait list will be retained.
SEAT AND GAME CHANGES Seat changes will be granted by table seniority, once a member has changed seats, they will lose their seniority. Players moving away from the blinds must post or wait, players moving closer to the blinds, may be dealt in for free. Game changes will be available on a first come, first serve basis; players may only move from a full table to a short table. Players must bring all their chips when changing tables. Players may not move back to the table they moved from for at least 1 hour.

When there are multiple main games, and a must move: the main games will never have more than 1 open seat, when a Must Move game is active.
Players being moved from the Must Move to the Main Game must move immediately, unless in their small blind or button. When arriving to the Main game, players do not have to post. All chips must be brought to the Main game.
NEW GAMES If a new game starts and you are on the list, you must play in the said new game (or Must Move game) to retain your place on the list, if by your playing there would be five or more participants at a nine-handed table or three or more participants in a six-handed table.

ONE SMALL ONE BIG There will only be one small blind and one big blind for each hand. Posting or making up blinds do not count towards the one small and one big rule.
MISSED ONE, MISS BOTH When a player misses either blind, they must make up both blinds to be dealt in or wait until their big blind.
VERBAL DECLARATIONSVerbal declarations in turn may be binding. Action out of turn will be binding if the action to that player has not changed, a call, fold, or check does not change action.
PLAYER RESPONSIBLITY Players are responsible to always protect their action and cards. If a dealer skips a player, it is the player’s responsibility to protect their action by calling attention to the dealer immediately, once significant action has occurred, the player may lose their option and may have a dead hand.
