If the claim is „out of turn”, the action remains valid, player being penalized REQUIRED two-handed sit-out. The player who was interrupted by the „out of turn” has all options open:
a) Check or Fold oblige the player who acted „out of turn” to preserve the action

» Agreement between two players to play „Check” is not allowed. In case of checking the flop, turn and river players are required to show their cards (starting with the first player after the button). In case of check on River after minimal action held in their hand, the last player to act is the first to show cards. If the player who created the last action folded into the muck and the players involved in the hand require Dealer to show its books, the Dealer is obliged to turn the cards (even if they have reached the MUCK, but still can be identified). If the hand is completed, the result can not be returned by the Show-Down. Disclosure of „live” hand before the betting is over, is forbidden, players being penalized with a round table on the first mistake (hand will play passive ), and the next mistake will result in the loss of that hand (Fold – if the player is all-in and elimination from the tournament).

» A single chip thrown into the pot that has a denomination greater than the stake is considered Call; two or more chips thrown in a single action can be considered Raise if they are greater than or equal to the minimum bet accepted at the time, otherwise it is considered Call. We recommend verbal announcement of desired action before its physical realization.
» Talking on the phone during a hand is not allowed. This can be tolerated only if it does not confuse or delay the game.

The player is not allowed to ask to see the cards. Table Dealers and referees are obliged to respect and enforce the rules impartially; their decisions must be above all in the spirit of the game (i.e. if a player has generated a prohibited action but the dealer believes he did it either unintentionally or due to ignorance or regulation, the dealer may choose to give a verbal warning and he/she will inform the player that rule applies and what’s correct action).
» Dealers’ mistakes can not be punished by players and may not be cause for injury or violence of any kind. Dealers’s mistakes will be sanctioned by the club on line salary or termination of employment contract.
