S.D. Admin. R. 20:18:16:15.13 - The play - Heads Up Poker Challenge

Heads Up Poker Challenge must be played according to the following rules:

(1) The game may be played only on a table designated by the licensee for the play of Heads Up Poker Challenge;
(2) The game consists of a dealer and two players;
(3) Both players shall make an equal, initial wager not exceeding the maximum bet limit established by SDCL 42-7B-14 and give the wagers to the dealer who places the wager in the designated location. The players are then given an equal number of Heads Up Poker Challenge poker chips;
(4) The game is played by playing Texas hold'em pursuant to ยง 20:18:16:11 in a no limit tournament format, with the blind bets doubling every 15 minutes;
(5) At any point after the first hand has been played, and if neither player has looked at his or her cards, the player in the big blind may increase the amount being wagered by the amount of the initial wager by picking up the challenge cube and placing it in the designated location in front of the other player. If the recipient of the challenge cube accepts the challenge, each player shall give the dealer an additional wager equal to his or her initial wager. The dealer shall place the wagers in the designated location and the game shall continue. However, if the recipient of the challenge cube rejects the challenge, that player forfeits the game and the other player wins all of the amounts wagered.

If the player is in the big blind and was previously the recipient of the challenge cube, that player may again increase the amount being wagered by the amount of the initial wager by picking up the challenge cube and placing it in the designated location in front of the other player;

(6) The challenge cube is a large six-sided die with imprints on each of its sides to indicate the number of times the wager has been increased;
(7) The game continues until one of the players has won all of the Heads Up Poker Challenge poker chips or one of the players forfeits the game by rejecting a challenge from the other player; and
(8) The winner of each game of Heads Up Poker Challenge has the right to either continue playing the game by playing a new game against the next challenger or the winning player may relinquish that right and leave the game with the player's winnings.
