Poker game is all about the excitements and etiquettes. Whether you play online or at a live tournament or at home, the manners remain same for the game. They are some of the common conventions needed to be followed by every poker player. Playing poker at home could be an emotional upfront as most of the time you are playing with your friends and family members. We bring you some of the do’s and don’ts of the poker game when playing at home.


  1. Honesty is the most important while playing poker at home. Always play with morality as you are playing with your friends or family members. You might win a game but with deceiving, you might lose friends.
  2. You should always act when it is your turn and not out of desperation as it will unfavorably distress the hand of another player. So, do remember to fold, call or bet only when it is your turn.
  3. Never leave the game unexpectedly and it is always appreciated if you let the people know in advance about your plans of leaving the game early.
  4. Try to play quickly and don’t overthink before making moves. Slow players irritate everyone and they might not invite you next time.
  5. Always be friendly when making moves without being whining about things.


  1. Do not shout, yell or misbehave when you lose the game. The way you behave after losing a game explains how experienced you are at playing poker. Always be a good loser and don’t end up insulting other players.
  2. Do not overjoyed or laugh at other players when you win the game. Be little matured when you win and try to keep calm. Better save your excitement when you reach home.
  3. Don’t give guidance to the player in the mid of the game. Other players might get annoyed with your pride.
  4. Don’t look at the hand of another player lest you have consent. Some players have strong reservation against looking at their hands.

Home poker games are famous among players looking for ease and excitement. The best part of a home poker game is that you d­­o not have to travel all the way to casino clubs hiding from folks, plus you get to play with your friends and family members in your comfort zone. Playing poker in a casino can be tedious sometimes as you are required to play with much more solemnity while sitting next to unknown people. Without keeping your curio on hold, we bring you a few things to always remember before hosting a home poker game.

  1. Always check with local laws before hosting a poker game at your home. Hosting a poker game may or may not be permitted depending upon area.
  2. The next step would be to invite your friends and family members and hopefully, this is the most convenient part.
  3. Do not overlook to order supplies like chips, chairs, tables and dealer buttons. You might want to bring two, three extra chairs in case of unexpected advents. You can play on a kitchen table if you don’t want to make your shopping a fanatic affair.
  4. You can also use a bottle cap or a coin if you do not have a dealer button.
  5. Bring some posters on tournament rules you are planning to play to avoid conflicts in future. In the case of confusion, anybody can just go and check the rules written on the poster. You will definitely avoid some yelling and whining.
  6. You can choose a game subjecting to various factors like how newbies the invitees are, cash game or just a friendly home game. You will need to clear what kind of game you aim to play.
  7. Make sure you follow hard rules if there is a lot of money at stake even if it’s a very casual game you are hosting.
  8. Don’t let the people assume that the game is just for fun, just because the stakes are low. You should keep reminding them about the rules.

While a guest is eventually responsible for his/her behavior, it is up to the host the way he reflects the seriousness of the game. You should be able to communicate the motto of hosting the game well to all the players. Happy Hosting!!
