Couchevel Playing Rules
In Courchevel, a marker called the ‘button’ or ‘dealer button’ shows which player is the nominal dealer for the current game. Before the game starts, players immediately go clockwise from the button posting the ‘small blind’, the first forced bet. Players immediately clockwise from the small blind plant the ‘big blind’, which is often twice the size of the small blind, but blinds can vary depending on the bet and the betting structure played.

In Fixed Limit games, the big blind is similar to a small bet, and the small blind is very much 1/2 the size of the big blind but can be larger depending on the stakes. For example, in a $2/$4 Fixed Limit game the small blind is $1 and the big blind is $2. In a $15/$30 Fixed Limit game, the small blind is $10 and the big blind is $15.
In Pot Limit and No Limit games, play is referred to according to the size of the blinds (for example, a $1/$2 Courchevel game has a small blind of $1 and a big blind of $2).
Now, each player receives their five hole cards, and the first unsuccessful card is dealt face up on the board. The betting action takes place clockwise near the table, opening with the player ‘under the gun’ (immediately clockwise from the big blind).
