Poker Hand Rank Card
Here is a Microsoft Word poker hand rank card that you can print on your laser or ink-jet printer. It is pocket-size
and is a little larger than a business card. It is similar to the hand rank cards that you get with a new deck of playing
cards. This card is customizable and you can choose what you would like printed on either side of your hand rank card. Some
of your players will want a hand rank on one side and chip colors on the other side. More experienced players will not want
a hand rank, but might want a blinds schedule on one side and the date of your next tournament on the other side. Other players
might want a blinds schedule on one side and chip colors on the other side. Make several different versions available near the
entrance so that players can grab one as they arrive.
The hand rank cards are particularly useful for large tournaments spread out over numerous tables. Players might
be constantly asking what the next blinds level is or what the chip colors are worth. To avoid this, provide the players
with these pocket-size cards. Make sure you give a card with a blinds schedule to every dealer.
Eight hand rank cards can be printed on each piece of 8.5 x 11 inch piece of paper. Print one side of the paper and then turn
the paper upside down and print the other side of the same piece of paper, using different information. You can mix and
match what you want printed on each card. Please visit my Poker Rule Book page for
instructions on how to print on both sides of a piece of paper using your computer printer. After you have printed both sides,
use scissors or a paper-cutter to separate the page into eight cards.
Here are the different Microsoft Word doc files that are available for download (An Adobe pdf file
is available below). The cards are shown at their actual size. See below for information on how to alter these files.

How to Alter These MS Word Files
These documents are supplied in Microsoft Word 2003 format. You can alter them as you wish. I
will not alter them for you! Anyone who knows the basics of MS Word will be able to change the text or colors or resize
the various charts. Basically, I have given you a template that you can now alter to produce cards exactly as you want.
There are no macros in these documents.
Altering the text should be no problem, simply delete my text and replace it with whatever you want. Changing the colors is
a bit more complicated ...

- Click on | Table | Properties | and make sure the Tables tab is selected
- Click on Borders and Shading... and make sure the Shading tab is selected
