Our Tables

We hope that playing at Run It Once Poker is a great experience for all players. To make this happen we’ve added several on-table options and features to keep playing poker fun.

Table Talk

Run It Once Poker introduces a unique way to quickly express yourself to other players at the table. Simply click the chat bubble next to your avatar and choose from a variety of quick-chat options and emojis to express yourself at the tables.

Bet Slider

Our Bet Slider allows you to set up and execute betting actions at any Run It Once Poker table. You can either drag the bar, scroll your mouse wheel, click in the bet box and type your bet size, or click the bet sizing shortcuts above the bet slider.

The bet sizing shortcuts are for both pre-flop and post-flop decisions. They allow you to quickly size your bet to a predefined amount. Customising the values of these bet sizing shortcuts, as well as other slider adjustments are available in the Settings menu.

Player Notes and Marking

In addition to the information presented via our Dynamic Avatars and optional HeroIQ built-in HUD, Run It Once Poker also allows you to take notes on your opponent. Simply double click on a player at your table and choose a colour from the notes popup, or assign a colour to the player via the context menu by right-clicking on them.

Time to Act

For each action within a hand, you will have 15 seconds of time to act on your decision, shown as a decreasing bar below your avatar’s nameplate.

If you take longer than this, you will automatically begin using extra time from your “timebank”. This is an extra period of time that does not refresh every hand. After sitting at a table you will have 60 seconds of starting timebank, which will be topped up by 10 additional seconds after every 30 hands dealt, up to a maximum of 120 seconds.

Responsible Gaming Alert

After each hour of game time an alert will show to remind you how long you have been playing and how much you have spent in buy-ins. This reminder is to help players be aware of how much time they spend playing to ensure they play responsibly.  For more information see Responsible Gaming Limits page.


How long do notes/markings last?

Notes will persist for as long as that player is at the table and if they leave and rejoin a table within a period of 4 hours.

Why can't I type a message to other players?

There is no traditional typed chat service on Run It Once poker- only our popup chat messages and emojis.

The reasoning behind this decision was first and foremost for game security. Chat options on many poker sites show the history of the hand, which can be used to scrape information for bots and other predatory software. For more information see our Game Integrity Policy.

This policy also protects players from harmful and abusive messaging.

Lastly, this system encourages chat! Many poker sites see their chatboxes rarely used. Our system promotes a friendly and fun atmosphere at the tables by being a simple way to share your feelings with the table. 🙂
