Bomb pot play

  • In lieu of blinds, antes are collected from each player seated at the table.
  • No pre-flop betting.
  • Post-flop betting proceeds as normal.
  • Players in cash games must wait until they are two to the left of the button to be dealt their first hand or be re-seated at a table. Due to the ante-only nature of the game, this measure is essential to mitigate position-exploitative play.
  • In double board games, the winner of each board is awarded one half of the pot.
  • In triple board games, the winner of each board is awarded one third of the pot.
  • Obviously multiple winners on any board will divide that fraction of the pot accordingly.
  • In Hold'em multiple board variations, you may play zero, one or two of your hole cards on each board in order to make the best five card hand.
  • In Omaha multiple board variations, you MUST play EXACTLY two of your hole cards (and hence EXACTLY three of the community cards) on EACH board. You MAY (and most often WILL) play two different hole cards on each of the boards, but you are allowed to re-use the same hole card(s) on each board. Fortunately, as long as you select "Display Hand Helper" from the "Table Settings" sub-menu under Options, then your strongest 5 card hand on each board will be automatically permuted and displayed for you. Also, unless you are a masochist, we highly recommend enabling the "Four-color deck" option in this same sub-menu.

What's this USDT/USDC thing all about?

  • ALL balances on this site will be denominated in USDT/USDC at ALL times.
  • These are cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin.
  • Unlike bitcoin, their prices are highly stable by design, and they are dubbed a "stablecoins".
  • Their prices almost always equal exactly $1, very rarely exceeding $1.01 or falling below $0.99.
  • Their price histories can be viewed here:
  • They move faster, often with cheaper transaction fees than bitcoin.
  • Because their prices are so stable, they are easily converted back into dollars at a very tight margin.
  • Again, ALL balances on this site will be denominated in USDT/USDC at ALL times.
  • If you deposit dollars they will be converted by us 1:1 into USDT/USDC upon receipt.
  • If you deposit Bitcoin it will be converted by us into USDT/USDC based on the price shown on at the time of receipt.
  • We commit to same day withdrawals via USDT/USDC, often within a few hours of request.
  • They can be stored in any multicoin wallet app that is capable of holding ETH (e.g. Exodus, Edge, Coinomi). If you need advice/assistance setting up a wallet, our customer service will help.
  • Both USDT and USDC are ERC-20 tokens, meaning they travel on the ETH blockchain. As a result, one must also hold a minimal amount of ETH in their wallet in order to send USDT/USDC to us (or anyone else). If need be, we can provide you with the ETH.
  • USDT is traded on exchanges all over the world, but not on Coinbase. However, USDC IS traded on Coinbase. If you have a preferred exchange for your crypto transactions, please choose accordingly.
  • Finally, ALL balances on this site will be denominated in USDT/USDC at ALL times.

But them graphics, yo?

  • We just really want Atari and Minecraft fans to feel at home.
  • But seriously, we get it - you like throwing tomatoes and donkeys at each other.
  • However it's our patriotic duty to bring bomb pots to the people as quickly as possible.
  • Stay tuned before long, you'll be grenading and nuking your villains' snazzy avatars to bits.

Is there an app for that?
Not at this time. However, as with sexier graphics, stay tuned.

Cool, how do I deposit?

  • Send USDT, USDC or BTC to the corresponding address shown on our Deposit page AND submit the Deposit Information Form.

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?

  • To withdraw USDT or USDC, complete and submit our Withdrawal Information form.


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.


  • While we do not guarantee their availability, other cryptocurrency or e-wallet withdrawal options may be available from time to time. Feel free to inquire with customer service.

Disconnection Protection


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.





  1. Each player is dealt two down (or hole) cards that only they can see.
  2. A round of betting occurs.
  3. Three community cards (known as the flop) are dealt face up in the middle of the table.
  4. Another round of betting occurs. A fourth community card (known as the turn) is dealt face up on the table.
  5. Another round of betting occurs.
  6. A fifth and final community card (known as the "river") is dealt face up on the table.
  7. A final round of better occurs.
  8. The player's hole cards are revealed and the player with the best five-card poker hand wins the pot.

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.


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.

High Card
  • Cards are ranked deuce (2) as the lowest to ace as the highest. If two or more players have the same high card, then the second highest card (and so on, to the fifth card if necessary) determines the winner.
  • A pair (two cards of the same rank) beats high card. The highest pair is a pair of aces. If two or more players have the same pair, then the highest of the three remaining cards (known as kickers) determine the winner.
Two Pair
  • Two pair beats a pair. If two or more players have two pair, then the highest pair determines the winner. For example, a pair of aces and sevens beats a pair of kings and queens. If two or more players have the same two pair then the fifth card kicker determines the winner.
Three of a Kind
  • Three of a kind (three cards of the same rank) beats two pair. Three aces is the best of these. If two or more players share the same three of a kind hand, the two remaining kickers determine the winner.
  • A straight beats three of a kind. A straight is five consecutive card ranks. Aces can be high or low so the lowest straight is ace through five while the highest is ten through ace. There are no kickers with straights since all five cards are needed to make the hand.
  • A flush beats a straight. A flush is any five cards all of the same suit (i.e., all diamonds or all spades, etc.). If two of more players share a flush then the player with the highest card (all the way to the fifth card if necessary) in the flush wins.
Full House
  • A full house beats a flush. A full house is the combination of three of a kind and a pair. If two or more players have a full house then the player with the best three of a kind wins. If those are the same then the player with the best pair wins.
Four of a Kind
  • Four of a kind (four cards of the same rank) beats a full house. If two or more players share the same four of a kind, then the fifth card kicker determines the winner.
Straight Flush
  • A straight flush (five consecutive cards all of the same suit) beats four of a kind. Aces can be high or low. An ace-high straight flush is called a royal flush, the best possible hand in poker.


Our site offers only Pot Limit and No Limit games.

Pot Limit
  • In Pot Limit, there are no fixed stakes. Instead, you can bet or raise up to the amount currently in the pot. This includes bets in front of you plus your call.
    For example, if there are 100 chips in the pot and you are the first to act in the betting round, the maximum you can bet is 100 chips. But the next player could then call that 100 and raise an additional 300 chips.
No Limit
  • In No Limit Hold'em, you can bet all of your chips at any time (referred to as going "all-in").
    In Pot Limit and No Limit games, the minimum bet or raise is equal to the big blind (see below). Once a player raises, the minimum reraise is equal to the last raise. The minimum resets to the big blind on the next round of betting.


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.
