Poker Society

The FXU Poker Society organises good structured poker tournaments for Falmouth and Exeter Students. We welcome players of all abilities and are willing to offer basic coaching for beginners.

The FXU Poker Society organises well structured poker tournaments for both Falmouth and Exeter Students. We welcome players of all abilities. We always welcome new players, especially new to the game as we always provide amateur training if desired. We organise tournaments on a weekly basis and run a league table throughout the year based on weekly results. Most of all the game is played in a fun and friendly atmosphere, encompassing all players equally.

How to play Poker

Poker is a skill-based card game where you must either have the best hand and get everyone to bet, or 'bluff' to avoid losing your chips. We play Texas-hold'em. Each round has 4 stages, the blind, the flop, the turn and the river. After the river, players show their hands and the best hand wins. If all but one of the players fold before the river, the last player standing wins all the chips that were bet. You do not have to show your hand unless it is the winning hand, but it is good ettiquette to show if your opponents have paid for it.

The position that you finish in a tournament determines how many points you get. Points are used to determine the size of your bonus stack at the end of the tournament league. In a cash game, points are not awarded and you can leave whenever you want to.
