Gameplay
 
 

The game will start with 10 players in a tournament format. When a player runs out of money, they are eliminated. When only one player remains,the game is over. There are no antes, just a small and big blind. The small blind starts one seat to the left of the dealer, the big blind two seats to the left. The action pre-flop starts to the left of the big blind. The action post-flop starts to the left of the dealer.

 

 
 
Blinds
 
 

The user can specify how often the blinds will increase or turn off the increases completely. The default setting has the blinds increase by the same amount every 10 hands. The user can also play a faster game with the blinds increasing by greater amounts.

- Marks the dealer's position.
- Marks the position of the small blind.
- Marks the position of the big blind.

 

 
 
Betting Rules/Limits
 
 

Limit - Players are allowed to raise only the amount of the current big blind. Players may fold, call the current bet or raise that amount.

Pot Limit - Players are allowed to raise any amount between the value of the big blind and the amount that is currently in the pot after calling the raise to them. For example, if a player is first to act, the small blind is $50 and the big blind is $100, that player could fold, call the $100 big blind or call the $100 big blind and then raise any amount between $100 and $250 ($100 to call brings the pot to $250). Assuming that player raises $150 after calling, there would be $400 total in the pot. The next player could fold, match the $250 total raise ($100 from the big blind and a $150 raise) or match the $250 raise and then raise any amount between $100 and $650 ($250 to call brings the pot to $650).

Note: In the application, matching a bet and then raising are done with the same action, so you will not be asked to call and then raise, only how much money you would like to put in.

No Limit - Players are allowed to raise any amount between the value of the big blind and the amount that they have minus the big blind. For example, if a player has $9800, is first to act, the small blind is $50 and the big blind is $100, that player may raise any amount between $100 and $9700 ($100 to match the big blind and $9700 available to raise).

Note: If a player does not have enough money to make the minimum raise, they may still bet whatever amount they have, thus putting them "All-In". For example, in a Limit game, if the small blind were $50 and the big blind were $100 and a player had $130, they would be allowed to raise $30 ($100 to match the big blind and a $30 raise). This is the only circumstance in which a player may bet out of the specified betting ranges.

Avatars
 
 

You can choose from the following avatars:

 

 
 
Buddy List
 
 
 

The buddy list is a quick and easy way to store and access the usernames of other players. You can use the stored names in the buddy list to quickly initiate networked games with your favorite opponents.

Adding Buddies
From The 'Buddy List' Setup Menu - Enter 'Buddy List Setup' by pressing , then selecting 'Settings' and then 'Buddy List Setup'. Enter the username of your buddy in the text field and press the 'Add Buddy' button. Make sure to save to confirm your changes by pressing the 'Done BACK_BUTTON_GLYPH' button.

From A Network Game - While in a game with network players press then select 'Add Player To Buddy List'. A list of all of the networked players in the game will be displayed. Only networked players not already in your buddy list will appear in the list. Select the player's username from the list you would like to add. Press the 'Add Buddy' button to add the players to your buddy list.
Note: This will only be available during a game with network players.

Entering Buddies
Select the player name field in the 'Player Setup' window to highlight the name entry box. Press then select 'Insert From Buddy List Menu'. Clicking on the username of a buddy will populate the name field with the selected buddy's username.
You can also highlight a field and begin typing the username of a buddy and a list will appear with matching usernames. Select a name from the list to populate the name field with the selected buddy's username.

Note: If there are no buddies in your list, these features will not be available.

Deleting Buddies Press and select 'Settings' then 'Buddy List Setup'. Select the username(s) of the buddy/buddies from the list by pressing . Selected buddies will have an icon next to the name when selected. Press the 'Delete Selected' button to permanently remove the selected usernames from your buddy list. Make sure to save to confirm your changes by pressing the 'Done BACK_BUTTON_GLYPH' button.

 

 
 
Chat
 
 
 

You can chat with your opponents during a networked game. When someone has sent a message, a chat bubble icon will appear at the corner of your screen.

Opening/Closing The Chat Window - Press LEFT_SHOULDER_GLYPH or press and select 'Chat Window'.

Sending A Message - After opening the chat window, enter text in the text field and press the 'Send' button.

Emoticons - The following emoticons are available in chat:

Expressive Chat Bubbles

Yelling - type <yell> or <y> at the beginning of your message.
Thinking - type <think> or <t> at the beginning of your message.
Whispering - type <whisper username> or <w username> at the beginning of your message. The username should be the username of the buddy you wish to whisper too. A whisper is only viewed by the buddy you whisper to.

Hint: You need not type the entire username of the buddy as long as you enter enough characters for it to match to a unique player name.

For example, you have to type to whisper to a player with the username 'bobby' if there is also a player with the username 'bonnie'. Typing just or would not be successful since more than one user name starts with the same characters of 'bo'.

Notes
- Make sure to use the angled brackets around the keyword to use expressive chat bubbles.
- In games where whispering would constitute cheating, whispering will be disabled during the game, but will be available both before and after the game.

 

Font Size And Timestamps - Press and select 'Settings'. Here you can change the chat font size and toggle the display of time stamps on and off.

 

 
 
Network Profile
 
 
 

The network profile allows you to create and set your own default avatar for network game play. This will be the avatar that is used in a network game.

Setting Up Your Profile - Press and select 'Settings' then 'Network Profile'.

Note: This avatar will always be used when you're challenged to a network game.

To use this avatar when sending a challenge, click on the avatar icon in the 'Player Setup' window. Press the 'Load Profile' button from the avatar setup menu, then press the 'Done BACK_BUTTON_GLYPH' button to confirm your changes.

Note: This button will only be available if the player type is set to human.

Sharing Settings - For your convenience, when you change your network profile, buddy list or chat settings these settings will also be reflected in other Requiem games, when applicable.
