About flickr poker
This group is established solely for amusement and not for wagering or gambling.
Each "player" can post one photo per day. That photo is considered your "hand". Upon playing a hand the "player" gets 5 individual chips (copy html below) to distribute. Find a photo in the pool that you think is a winner and give them a "chip" (paste the code below into your comment on that photo). Find four more winning "hands" and paste another chip on each until you've given away all five chips. Obviously you can not give yourself a chip...play fair. Now you've completed a hand and sit back and see if your posted photo collects any chips.
added for clarification:
Once you "play your hand" you can not re-post it...that will be considered cheating as its essentially competing over and over again with different photos and creates an unfair advantage over those that don't repost - be sure to read the Rules of the Game as this is not a new rule although some have been confused in the past, violators will be shot, ok, not shot but their hand will be removed/disqualified...
If your still a bit confused please read the Frequently Asked Questions.
CUT AND PASTE THE FOLLOWING

Pasting the above html in a photos comment will put one chip on the selected photo.
You can leave a comment as well (encouraged), but all this group requires is that to play a "hand" (post one photo to the pool) - you must place five individual chips on other photos in the pool.
Depending on the number of chips a photo (hand) receives, it is eligible to be posted as a small image in the threads within the discussion portion of the pool.
Photos that receive 1 chip = ace high
Photos that receive 2-4 chips = a pair
Photos that receive 5-6 chips = two pair
Photos that receive 7-8 chips = three of a kind
Photos that receive 9-10 chips = straight
Photos that receive 11-12 chips = flush
* Photos that receive 13-15 chips = full house
* Photos that receive 16-20 chips = four of a kind
* Photos that receive 21-25 chips = Straight Flush
* Photos that receive 26+ chips = Royal Flush
Photos earning a "full house" or better (13 chips or more) are eligible to go to the high rollers table at High Stakes Flickr Poker
to have your "winning Hands" displayed in the links above you can tag your photos as below, depending on how many chips they received:
You must use these tags exactly as written above otherwise your pics won't show up in the pool tag searches. These tag searches are a great way to see how your fine photos compare with others.
Lastly be sure to read the Rules of the Game. Still having questions? Be sure to look in the Flickr FAQ
Good luck and see you in the winners' circle!
