Hosting Home Poker Tournaments
All you have to do is select a pre-defined tournament (or define your own in Edit Tournament) and begin. DD Poker counts down the clock for each level and breaks, then notifies you audibly and visually when the level is about to end. If there are rebuys and/or add-ons, you are reminded when they should occur. As the "bank," you track the buy-ins, rebuys and add-ons: Added together, this is tour prize pool. DD Poker provides an easy way to determine the prize payouts.
Tips on running your own home poker tournament can be found in the Hosting Tips help topic.
Poker Clock Controls
|This section explains the features displayed for the Poker Clock. The red numbered circles on the picture below correspond to descriptions of each section of the game table.|
|The Menu Buttons at the top of the screen
access common game functions.
The Tournament Status Area displays the name of the tournament, the
time left in that level, current level, and the current ante/blinds. Below the main information the next
ante/blinds, and rebuy/add-on information is displayed. If rebuys and add-ons are allowed in the
tournament, it displays when the rebuy period ends
and after which level the add-on occurs.
|The Start button
starts the clock. When the clock is running, it displays Pause, which can be used to
temporarily pause the tournament.
The Spacebar, S key, or P key also toggles the Start/Pause
The << Rewind button is used to rewind the tournament to the beginning of the current level. If you press it twice, time will rewind to the beginning of the previous level. The >> Forward button is used to advance the tournament to the beginning of the next level. These buttons are useful if you need to quickly advance to the next level (e.g., to speed things up or after editing the tournament settings).
