Poker Basics: The Dealer Button

In most forms of poker, one player acts as dealer throughout a given hand. When the hand is over, the deal passes to the next player in clockwise rotation. However, players never actually deal cards in a brick-and-mortar casino, nor online.

Other sites rigidly attempt to mimic the physical layout of a brick-and-mortar casino, all the way down to re-creating the white hockey-puck, or "button," that shuffles on top of the table indicating the designated dealer.

We don't. Our marker is a triangular wedge that rotates around the central playing area. Iconic yet functional, it points clearly and specifically to the designated dealer, looks like modern art, and makes a bittersweet allusion to the inevitable passage of time.
