      Rules for the Hand Evaluation Forums

      1. Pay attention to the forum's limit and your own member status
      The sample hands forums are a service funded by the entire PokerStrategy.com community. Active members
      of the PokerStrategy.com community are the only ones who should be profiting from this service.

      If you accidently submit a hand in the wrong forum, your post will be moved to the right forum
      (a note will be left telling you where you can now find your post).

      2. Give constructive answers that help users
      This is more of a request than a rule. Include as much constructive content as possible in order to
      create a good discussion, both you and the other members stand to profit.

      3. Include as much information as possible.
      A lot of sample hands are submitted without including any information or even asking a question about
      the hand. Poker is a unique game - you have to adapt to your opponents, as well as a number of other
      factors. It's impossible to say how a hand can be best played when no additional information is included.
      You may fold two cards at one table, and raise with the same two at another - poker isn't in black and white.

      Examples of relevant information to include:
      • Information on your opponents' playing style
      • What happened in previous hands against the same opponent(s)
      • Your image (loose/tight, aggressive/passive) at the table

      Every bit of information helps. The more questions you ask and the more information you include, the better
      the hand evaluators can judge your play and the situation at hand. Tell the hand evaluator where you
      are having difficulties. Include your own thoughts on the hand and on your opponent's hand range. The more
      you give, the more you get back!

      4. Write an informative headline.
      Your headline should include the limit, variation and situation at hand. Here is an example:
      AK Top Pair Top Kicker + Nut flush draw - Turn play

      5. Use a hand converter.
      Nothing is more painstaking and time consuming than trying to piece together the pieces of an unconverted hand.
      You can use the PokerStrategy.com Hand Converter to convert hands from the most popular poker platforms:
      PokerStrategy.com Poker Hand Converter

      You may have to use a different converter for less popular poker platforms:
      Various handconverter

      6. Do not post more than 3 hands in one thread.
      Please do not include more than 3 hands in a single thread. This saves our hand evaluators a lot of scrolling.

      There's another reason for including as few hands as necessary in your thread: the fewer hands in the thread,
      the more in depth the analysis of each
      hand. The hand evaluators can then spend more time on a single hand and you will probably get more out of the
      analysis for yourself.

      7. Pick your most interesting hands.
      In order to keep the quality standards high, every user should carefully pick their most interesting hands and therefore we restrict the amount of threads to 10 per day in each subforum.

      8. Don't post the hand results.
      You don't need to know how a hand played out to make an objective analysis - knowing the result can even be
      counter-productive.
      If you do want to include the result, be sure to make it invisible, so that each user can choose whether or not to see it.

      9. Don't expose players' identities.
      Every member has a right to anonymity at the poker table. If you happen to know the member's poker screen name
      as well, always ask for his permission before revealing it.

      Special Forum Functions

      [COLOR=darkred][b]How can you see if your hand got evaluated?[/b][/COLOR]




      "evaluated by Name"
      Your hand has already been evaluated by a Handjudge.


      A check mark besides your thread means your hand has already been processed. „evaluated by“ remains as long as a member responds and uses the respond-option "Advise the judge of taking another look at this thread". Afterwards, "evaluated by Name" is going to disappear and the thread will be marked with an exclamation mark. The Handjudge will recognize, that another question came up and will process the thread as soon as possible.

      If you have an urgent question or want a handjudge to give a statement about a particular matter, respond by additionally clicking on the responding-option "Advise the judge of taking another look at this thread".
