TEXAS HOLD ’EM POKER

TEXAS HOLD ’EM POKER

Texas hold ‘em poker is the most popular variety of poker in the world. The game is played with a 52-card deck, with aces being high and twos being low. In a Straight, however, aces can be high or low. The objective of the game is to get a hand that ranks higher than that of the dealer. All players play against the casino independently of each other. The casino sets the minimum and maximum ANTE bets for every table, as well as the table’s maximum payout.

To take part in the game, players must place a bet on the ANTE field. When the dealer announces “no more bets” and covers the bets with his/her hand, players are not allowed to touch or change their wagers. The dealer deals two cards face down to each box and two cards to him/herself, and then three cards face up to the middle of the table (flop), the so-called “community cards”. After the flop, the player looks at his/her cards and the three community cards and makes a decision on whether to continue the game or not.

If a player decides to not play the round, he/she discards his/her cards and loses the initial ANTE bet.

If a player decides to continue the game, he/she must place a wager on the BET field that is double the ANTE wager. The dealer adds two more cards to the community cards and shows his/her cards.

The objective of each player is to find the best five-card hand using his/her cards and the five community cards.

Like the players, the dealer determines his/her hand by using his/her two cards and the five community cards. The dealer opens each player’s cards in turn and compares his/her hand with the hand on each box.

Minimal game: “a pair of fours.”

If the dealer and a player have identical hands, the two remaining cards do not count and there a Stay (the player’s bet neither wins nor loses).

If the dealer has a game and the player’s hand ranks higher than the dealer’s, winning ANTE wagers are paid out in accordance with the payout table, and BET wagers are paid out 1:1.

If the dealer has “no game” and a box has a Straight or a hand ranking below a straight, ANTE wagers are paid out 1:1. If a box has a Flush or a higher-ranking hand, ANTE wagers are paid out in accordance with the payout table. BET wagers are not paid out.

When there are free boxes, one player may play any number of both “open” and “blind” boxes. Players who play more than one box look at the cards on the boxes and make decisions regarding each in the dealing order. Players may not return to a previous box once a decision has been made. Bets may vary, but they must comply with the table’s minimum/ maximum.

BONUS GAME

Before the start of a game, players may place a bonus wager in addition to the regular ANTE wager. If the player is dealt a hand as good as or better than Two Aces up to a Straight, he/she is paid out a bonus at the 7:1 coefficient. If a player has a Flush or a higher-ranking hand, the coefficient from the payout table is used.

The bonus wager is paid out regardless of whether the box won or lost. After the bonus is paid out, the player may stop playing, by discarding his/her cards and losing the initial ANTE wager.
