Re: Pocket Aces (resub)


This is the beginning move in Texas Hold'em. It is called the Flop when the first three cards are turned over. There is a lot of betting and two more cards to come out. A Texas hold'em player would recognize this as a beginning of a hand, a very interesting hand.

I guess I can say it again... the flop isn't the beginning - there's betting before the community cards are even dealt. Also, no text is allowed this week, and the A on an ace counts as text. =\ Better luck next week.

...and the burn cards go under the chips which are above the flop and it would be more interesting if the non-ace was a face suited to one of the flopped aces...

Why is the dealer button in the pot? I have never seen a dealer button in a pot.

People do get a bit elitest here don't they.

It is not like as if this entry is actually going to win, there is no real threat to your entries.

No elitism. Just people who like poker.

Elitist comment is more along the lines of people nit picking over whether the letter A on the cards is text whereas I would consider it more of part of the graphics. The original submission was not rejected on text.

That's not elitism either. I'm sorry if it read that way. I was just attempting to help you understand Woot's rules. When they say "no text", they mean it - "text" includes all letters, numbers, punctuation, foreign characters (i.e. asian characters), basically anything that can be found on the keyboard. New designers often underestimate the breadth that Woot's "no text" rule covers. Anyway, the rejectionator isn't going to list off every single problem with every design.

Databit, we have had many "no text" derbies in the past. Things that have beent rejected include: plus signs, equals signs, and an infinity symbol, as well as numbers and letters. If you want to resubmit this this week, remove the A's and the 2 from the cards and the word "DEALER" from the chip. That ain't elitist. Just the facts, sir.

When an entry is deleted, Joel doesn't always give every reason it didn't make the grade, and usually just the one that is most visible to him. He also looks at the comments, and if he sees that you have already been told what to fix, he doesn't waste his time repeating the most obvious stuff.

As for the hand itself, it's up to you. If people think you have the wrong one to start Tx Hold 'em, they won't vote for you. If you want votes, listen to the audience.
