ESSENTIAL INFO - PLEASE READ BEFORE PLAYING!
Bomb pot play
What's this USDT/USDC thing all about?
But them graphics, yo?
Is there an app for that?
Cool, how do I deposit?
IMPORTANT NOTE: In the “Transaction ID” box, a common mistake made by many players is that they copy OUR wallet address into this field. This does not help us in identifying your deposit since all the deposits we receive are coming to that same address! You should instead provide either the Transaction ID (also known as “Transaction hash”). If you have trouble locating this, please contact customer service to tell them which wallet/exchange you are sending from and they can help navigate you to the ID/hash.
Cool, how do I withdraw?
IMPORTANT NOTE: For either USDT or USDC the “Receiving Address” should be an ETH address (This is NOT a typo. Since USDT and USDC are both ETH tokens, they are stored on and travel via the ETH blockchain!). If the first two characters of the address are 0x, then you are probably doing things right. If not, then you are doing something wrong. If you have any confusion at all, please contact customer service.
Why can't my friend play from the same IP address?
Cause anglers gonna angle. For your protection and to prevent collusion, we do not allow multiple accounts to play from the same IP address. Any attempts to collude will be dealt with severely, quite possibly involving the confiscation of your balance.

It is an unfortunate fact of life in online poker that, rarely, your internet connection will glitch right when you’re in the middle of a hand and about to make a play.
If you are still connected but don’t make a play in time, this type of protection doesn’t apply. You will time out of the hand and automatically fold. If this occurs during a tournament, you will be placed on ‘Auto Fold’, and in cash games, you will be placed in ‘Sit Out’, until you come back to the table.
But if your internet connection momentarily drops, read on…
Protection for Cash Games & Tournaments
If you are disconnected during a hand, BPP’s software will detect your situation and you will be given an additional 30 seconds to act. If you successfully reconnect within this timeframe, the table and/or tournament you were playing in will reappear automatically. AS SOON AS YOUR INTERNET CONNECTION IS RE-ESTABLISHED, PLEASE IMMEDIATELY CLICK ON “Menu”, SCROLL DOWN TO “Refresh table” AND CLICK ON THAT. If you don’t act within these 30 seconds, your hand will check/fold.
The only instance where you’re given extra time to act is if you’re disconnected from BPP’s poker software. In other words – no extra time just for stalling.
If the delay is not on BPP’s end, regardless of the cause, and you don’t act in the specified timeframe, your hand will be folded.
Finally: let's say you’re in the middle of a hand and a disconnection happens on your turn. The disconnection will make the system automatically check for you if no other player has bet. But if other players have made a bet then it will automatically put you on auto-fold until you reconnect.
POKER VARIATION RULES
PLAY OF THE HAND
Your five card hand can consist of none, one, or both of your hole cards along with five, four, or three of the community cards. If two or more players share the same best hand, the pot is divided equally among the winners.
RANK OF HANDS
Poker hands are ranked in the order specified below, lowest to highest. Note that only card rank (deuce through ace) matter in poker when comparing individual cards. The suits of clubs, diamonds, hearts, and spades are all considered equal.
Three of a Kind
Four of a Kind
Our site offers only Pot Limit and No Limit games.
BLINDS, ANTES AND THE BUTTON
The dealer button (or just the "button") is a white disk that is rotated clockwise among the players. The player that is "on the button" is the last to act in each betting round, after the flop.
In traditional Texas Hold'em, there are forced bets called "blinds" made prior to the dealing of the hole cards. These blinds are similar to antes except they only involve two players and the bets do not immediately go into the pot. The player to the left of the button posts the "small blind" and the next player posts the "big blind". The small blind is typically half of the big blind and the big blind is the minimum bet or raise that can be made in this and all subsequent rounds. In tournament play, the blinds are raised at set time intervals, or levels. This keeps the action going and puts a definite end point on the game. Otherwise, players could just keep folding their hands and the game would go on for hours or days.
Once the two blinds are posted, the player to the left of the big blind is the "first to act" and has the option of folding, calling the big blind bet, or raising. Play continues around to the button. Then the player who posted the small blind has the option to call or raise the bets so far. And the same goes for the player who posted the big blind. If no one raised the big blind then that player has the option to "check" and the flop will be dealt. There are no more forced bets after the flop and first person to the left of the button (who hasn't yet folded) will be the first to act in subsequent betting rounds.
Bomb pot tables differ from traditional tables in that no blinds are posted. Instead each player posts an ante. There is no pre-flop betting and then action after the flop proceeds as described above.
A side pot is created when a player calls a bet but doesn't have enough chips to cover the bet or if a player raises when another player is already all-in. The main pot will only hold the chips that every player contributed equally to. The overflow bets go into the side pot, which the all-in player did not contribute to and therefore cannot win. There can be multiple side pots if there are multiple all-in players. The last side pot created is the first side pot awarded after the showdown. The main pot is awarded last. Players who fold before the showdown forfeit their right to all pots, including the main pot.
Omaha is a variation of poker similar to Texas Hold’em but with following differences: each player is dealt four hole cards instead of two and to make their five-card hand, they must use exactly two of their hole cards and exactly three of the five community cards. So for each hand dealt, a player has 60 possible ways to make a five-card hand in Omaha compared to only 21 in Hold'em.
All other aspects of Omaha are identical to Hold'em.
