17.25.1 Desert Poker

For all intents and purposes, Desert Poker functions almost exactly like the game called "Texas Hold'em".

Desert Poker is a variation of the standard card game of poker. The game consists of two cards being dealt face down to each player and then five community cards being placed by the dealer - a series of three ("the flop") then two additional single cards ("the turn" and "the river"), with players having the option to check, bet or fold after each deal.


-- Command Breakdown: --
CARDTABLE DEAL 2 CARDS TO ALL
   - This will deal the required three cards to all players.

CARDTABLE DEAL <#> CARDS TO TABLE
   - This command allows you to deal the flop, turn and river cards.
   - The Flop consists of 3 cards.
   - The Turn and River are 1 cards apiece.

CARDTABLE BURN NEXT
   - Before Dealing the Turn and River, it is common practice to burn the top
     card of the deck.

CARDTABLE FOLD HAND
   - If you feel that your cards will not win, you may FOLD your cards so that
     you are no longer participating or keeping your cards a secret.

CARDTABLE BET <#> GOLD
   - In order to further your goal of winning a hand, you will be able to bet
     upon your cards.
   - If you are using a stack/pool, the gold you are able to bet will be
     limited to its total.

CARDTABLE CALL
   - Calling allows you to match the highest bet. You will automatically check
     if your bet matches or is higher.

CARDTABLE CHECK
   - If you currently match or have the highest bet, checking allows you to
     indicate that you have no intention of raising the bet at this point.
   - If you do not match the highest bet, this command will tell you how much
     more you will need to bet.

CARDTABLE SHOW CARDS ALL
   - Once all the cards are on the table and the betting, folding and calling
     process has ended and no single player remains, use this command to turn
     over everyone's cards and display them to the room.
   - With multiple winners, they will be automatically assigned.
   
CARDTABLE WINNER <player|SPLIT>
   - The winner is whoever had the highest set of cards or the last-player with
     cards at the end of the round.
   - You may only use SPLIT when prompted.
