Collusion is cheating involving two or more players working together. Collusion can mean any illegal cheating between 2 or more players. Common types of collusion include Chip Dumping, stacking a Cold Deck, and communicating hands using signals or in another language.
Some common rules implemented to deter collusion include:
- When any player is All-in and has been called, their hand must be shown to the entire table, as well as the hand(s) of the caller(s).
- The deck must be spread out before play so that all players can see that all cards are accounted for.
- Many casinos only allow English to be spoken at the table (or the native language of the country where the game takes place)
- Most casinos do not allow you to be on your phone while you are in a hand.
