The International Poker Rules
The International Poker Rules is a standard set of rules which are established in 2008 by founding father of the FIDPA, Marcel Luske and co-author Michelle Lau. Marcel’s opinion was that the pokerworld needed a standard set of rules, so a pokerplayer will always face the same set of poker rules in every tournament. Luske asked pokerplayers and tournament directors through the whole world what their experience and opinion were and found out that an international set of rules would serve the pokercommunity at best.
After publishing the rules many poker players gave their support to the International Poker Rules. Some examples: Phil Ivey, Phil Helmuth, John Duthie, Antonio Esfandiari, Eli Elezra, Patrik Antonius, Paul Jackson and Kenny Hallaert.
Rules updated in 2018.
The first version of the International Poker Rules were published in 2008, after updates in 2009 and 2013 the FIDPA updated the rules in 2018 again.
