Welcome to the Poker General Forum!

This is a brief summary of what should and shouldn't be posted here, so that we can hopefully keep having to move threads around to a minimum. New and old members alike should take note of this - there is still a lot of threads being found that need to be moved.

What should be posted here:

Topics with general poker content that aren't covered by any of the other forums. This may include, but is not restricted to...

  • Poker queries not related to strategy issues (such as issues with rules, questions regarding poker literature, and so on).
  • Topics regarding poker on TV.
  • General poker narratives.
  • Any other topic relating to poker, in general, that does not fall under the specifics of any of the other poker forums.
What should not be posted here:
Each section of the forum has a brief description detailing the types of topics that belong in those sections. A good rule of thumb is to take a moment and read them to determine where your topic belongs before posting.

Tips:

If the word "tournament" is anywhere in your thread title or first post there is very little chance your post belongs in General Poker instead of Tournament Poker.

If any poker site is in your thread title or in your post - there is only a small chance it belongs in General Poker instead of Poker Rooms.

If your post is a strategy related questions - there is not much chance it belongs in General Poker instead of Tournament Poker, Cash Games or Learning Poker.

If your post has nothing to do with poker - there is zero chance it belongs in General Poker instead of somewhere in the General Discussion section which includes The Player's Lounge and other non-poker forums.

Book Excerpts

From time to time, I would like to post poker advice from my latest book, HALLOWED HOLD'EM POKER. I mention the book to show that it has some merit behind it.Would this be considered spam?

If you are using an excerpt from your book to start a strategy discussion that is fine. But if all you do is post your excerpt with no other discussion in the post then that is not fine.

You would also be expected to return to your threads and engage in the discussions.

What should not be posted here:

  • Anything that is prohibited by the rules, such as spam.
  • Any poker industry news (post breaking news, etc. in the Poker News forum)
  • Any strategy posts or questions (post to the relevant Poker Strategy forum such as Cash Games, Tournament Poker, or Learning Poker - see those sections' descriptions before deciding where to post).
  • Any questions regarding specific poker sites or live poker rooms/casinos (post to the Poker Rooms forum).
  • Any posts about depositing or withdrawing funds on your poker account (post in the Poker Deposits & Withdrawals forum)
  • Any posts about poker tools software (post in the Poker Software & Tools forum)
  • Any hand histories for review (post to the Hand Analysis forums in either Cash Games or Tournament Poker).
  • Bad beat stories, brags, or challenges (use the Brags, Beats and Challenges forum).
  • Anything with no poker content (use the relevant forum in the General Discussion section, which will usually be the Players' Lounge).
Each section of the forum has a brief description detailing the types of topics that belong in those sections. A good rule of thumb is to take a moment and read them to determine where your topic belongs before posting.
So I might be slow because I still don’t understand. Let’s say I just want to talk about a poker experience that I had recently. Where would i post that?
