Hold'em poker (also known as Texas Hold'em) is the most popular poker game in the world. In Hold'em, players get two down cards and five community cards (which are face-up in the middle of the table). Your hand is determined by using the best five of those seven cards (in any combination) and the best hand wins the pot.
Omaha High (Omaha) is very similar to Hold'em, but has a greater variety of possibilities thereby making for some extremely exciting games. Omaha is a community card game played the same as Hold'em with the following two exceptions: Each player receives four face-down cards (pocket cards) to start and at the showdown each player must use two of their four pocket cards and combine them with exactly 3 board cards. At the showdown players MUST use exactly two of their pocket cards and three board cards.
8 or Better
Omaha (8 or Better) is also sometimes known as Omaha High-Low or Omaha Hi-Lo. It is played like the high version of Omaha, except at the showdown the pot is split between the holder of the highest hand and the holder of the lowest qualifying hand. In Omaha (8 or Better), if you do not have two cards 8 or lower among your four down cards, you cannot qualify for low. If three or more cards 8 or lower do not end up among the five community cards, no low is possible. In that case, the pot will not be split (unless two hands tie for high).
Deuces Wild is a version of Video Poker, all deuces are treated as wild cards. This means that whenever you get a 2, you can use that card as any card you like. You can therefore change it's face value and/or suit to work with the hand you have. With Deuces Wild, you have a far better chance of getting good hands. The casino compensates for this by offering a tighter payout schedule. You only get paid with a three of a kind or better.
Pai Gow Poker combines elements of the ancient Chinese game of Pai Gow and the American game of Poker. The game is played with a traditional deck of 52 playing cards plus on Joker. The Joker can be used only as an Ace or to complete a Straight, a Flush, a Straight Flush or a Royal Flush.
This is a game of draw poker. The dealer will deal you five cards face up. At this point you should decide which cards to keep and which ones to throw. To keep a card just click on the card you want to keep or on the hold button below it. Once you are finished picking the cards to be discarded click on the deal button and the dealer will deal your new cards. Depending on how many cards you throw, the same number of new cards will be dealt back into your hand so you end up with five. Whether you win or lose is determined by how good a poker hand you have.
Caribbean poker - The Progressive (a five card hand that is a flush or better)
The second game that is going on inside the regular one is the progressive game. This game is an optional side game added the regular table game. This game is implemented and resolved every hand. The player makes the decision to play the progressive at the beginning of each hand. Then the benefits for getting a progressive hand are only valid if the player paid for the progressive at the beginning of that hand.
are poker rules for Texas Hold’em, possibly the most popular poker game
played around the world!
The basic poker rules of Texas Hold’em are the same across most poker rooms, both online and in traditional casino settings. Players in this game get 2 cards each, and 5 more are dealt to the table which everyone can use as part of his hand. The poker rules call for 5 rounds of betting.
Generally, Texas Hold’em is played with anywhere from two to ten players. It is usually played with 2 blinds, which means the first 2 players to the left of the dealer must post small forced bets -- called “blinds” -- to start the pot. These bets are posted before the players receive any cards, which is why they are called “blind” bets. Habitually the 1st blind is called the Small or Little Blind, and his forced bet is equal to ½ of the minimum bet for that table. The 2nd blind, called the Big Blind, bets the minimum bet. In live games there may be one blind, multiple blinds, or none (players each paying an ante, instead), but online poker rules use 2 blinds.
Each player is first dealt two cards face down, after which the first betting round ensues. Poker rules call for the action to move in a clockwise direction from the dealer’s position. The first person to make a bet is the person sitting on the left hand side of the dealer. Each player (after the blinds, that is) makes a bet based on what kind of hand he expects to be able to form with these two, plus the community cards showing up later.
Next, the first three community cards are dealt. This is referred to the “flop” since they are dealt all at once. These cards are dealt face up so that everyone may apply them to his hand. Each player now makes another bet, which is based on how these three community cards affect his hand. The dealing of a community card, then a betting round following each card continues until five community cards are in the middle of the table and each active player has bet twice more.
It is now time for the showdown. Each player tries to make the best five-card hand possible from the seven cards that he sees. Texas Hold’em poker rules dictate that a player may use both of his hole cards, one, or none to make his final hand. To use only the community cards as your hand is called “playing the board.”
