Texas Hold’em is one of the most popular online casino games. All thanks to tournaments like the World Series of Poker being televised. The popularity of the game has also increased. All thanks to the availability of online poker casinos. Which allows people to sharpen their skills playing against real people with real stakes.
How to Play
Texas Hold’em is very easy to learn, even if you never played poker in your life. Each player starts the game with two cards.
All you have to do is make the best five card hand you can with the combination of the seven cards.
How to Bet
Every Texas Hold’em game is bet in four rounds, with a predetermined minimum and maximum bet. All depending on how small or big your wallet is.
For example, a $2/$4 game has four betting rounds and the first two have a limit of $2 and the last two rounds have a limit of $4. You can bet or raise up to the limit of the round you’re playing. The maximum you can bet or raise in the first two rounds in this situation will be $2. The maximum you can bet or raise in the last two rounds is $4.
Starting the Game
When the game starts, two “blind” bets are put up. The player to the left of the dealer puts up half of the minimum bet allowed. Then the player to the left of the small blind posts the big blind, which is the minimum bet allowed.
Every player eventually gets to act as the small blind, big blind and the dealer.
Each player can play with two cards face down, with the player on the small blind getting the first card and the dealer getting the last card. The first round starts with the player to the left of the big blind either putting in $2 to “call” the blind bet, putting in $4 to “raise” the big blind or folding his hand.
The betting goes on until it gets back to with the small blind, and each player has the option to raise the bet.
This is after the first round you made the bets. The dealer has to deal three cards face up in the middle of the table, after which another round of betting begins in the same order the game started.
After betting completed on the flop , the dealer will put the fourth card face up in the middle of the table. Another round of betting will begin in the same order, and you can increase the bets to $4 now.
After the last round of betting is over, the dealer will put the fifth and final card face up in the middle of the table and the players have to make their final bets.
After the final bets, players may use the combination of their two cards and the five cards on the table to come up with their best five card combination. The player with the best hand wins the pot.
