II. Games

2.1 What do I do to begin playing?
Download, install and open our free Poker software, as described in section I of this FAQ. Select a game by clicking the appropriate tab on the software lobby, choose a table, and click Join Table. Then take a seat and a registration form will appear on your screen. Fill out the registration form and you're all set. You'll literally be playing within minutes.

2.2 How do I select the game I want to play?
When you're in the Lobby, you'll see the Games listed on the poker room site. Select the table you are interested in playing at and double click it (or click Join Table at the bottom the chart). The table will appear on your screen and take a seat anywhere there is a seat open.

2.3 What if the table I want to play at is full?
Somes sites offer a Waiting List button for that table and you will automatically be added to the waiting list. In the lobby, on the right of your screen, you will notice a list of players currently playing at and waiting for a particular table. When you click on Join Wait List, your name will be added to the bottom of the waiting list. As seats become available, your name moves up till you are at the top of the list. When your seat becomes available, you will automatically be notified.

2.4 What if there are no players at the table I wish to play at?
In this case, just click on the waiting list for the empty table you would like to play at. Select the minimum number of players you wish to play against. When a new game is ready to start, with your selected number of players ready to go, you will automatically be notified.

2.5 Will I know how much is in the pot at all times?
Yes. This amount is usually posted in the center of the table. In addition, the chips in the center of the table equal the exact size of the pot.

2.6 I've never played poker before but would like to join. How do I start?
Download any of the software from our featured poker rooms and play for fun to get started. For a quick lesson on how to play the games we offer, just we have a How to Play section right here on the site, with poker rules and tips. Once there, you can click on any game or games you wish to learn about. The first thing you must do is learn which poker hand beats another hand. Click Rank of Hands for this information. (As a suggestion, print any or all of these pages and keep them handy as a quick reference when you're first starting to play.) You can also learn the common poker terms on our poker lingo page. For people who are interested in poker odds and poker strategies we have pages dedicated for those too.

III. Software

3.1 Do all poker sites use the same software?
No, not all sites pffer the same software. HoldemPoker4u.com features poker sites with the most high-tech and secure software systems available anywhere.

3.2 How can I be sure that all sites featured at HoldemPoker4u.com are fair and honest?
We always try to list sites that are reputable and have a good history with their players.

3.3 Sometimes during play, the connection seems to get interrupted or the game starts to go really slow. Why is this?
The communication between your machine and our servers has been optimized for the fastest response. However, if you feel that your game is going slow, most likely one of two things could be happening:
1) The players on the table are taking a long time to make their moves.
2) Your connection to the Internet may be bad.

3.4 What happens if I get disconnected from a table in the middle of a hand?
If this happens, the poker site will try to automatically re-connect you to the Internet and return you right back to your table. Ideally, you'll get back in time to resume play as if nothing had happened. Find out more about their disconnection policies since it varies from one site to the next.
