This box will outline the minimum and maximum Table Buy-in at the top. The default buy-in is always the table minimum.

Game buttons – When play indicates that it鈥檚 your turn to act, you will be shown a series of buttons to choose from.

Choose the corresponding button to the action you see best fit. You may also use the pot calculating wager amount buttons when choosing to bet. These will automatically wager the specified portion of the pot currently being played dependent upon your selection.

Pre-Action Buttons 鈥 If you know what you would like to do in a hand prior to it being your action, the pre-action buttons allow you to make the selection and will automatically carry out your selection once it鈥檚 your turn.
