What is Duplicate Poker?
Duplicate Poker removes the element of luck and conforms to a truly sporting occasion. Rather than competing against those at their table, duplicate poker pitches players against opponents dealt exactly the same cards in exactly the same positions on neighboring tables. With all players on a determined seat with the same allocation of cards, the only determining factor in the results is how skillfully each player plays their hands.
