Texas Hold’em Poker (Texan Poker) is the most widely-played version of poker in the world today. It is played with a 52-card deck. Texas Hold’em starts with two players placing a small blind bet and a big blind bet respectively. Then dealing takes place; every player receivs two face-down cards, which can’t be seen by the other players. Once the cards have been dealt, the first betting round starts. The dealer then places three community cards on the table (the flop) and the second betting round follows. When this is finished a fourth community card (the turn) is dealt. After the third betting round, the fifth and last community card (the river) is dealt. Once all of the cards are on the table, the last betting round opens and if more than one player is still in the game, the cards are turned over in the showdown.
The players have the following options each time it is their turn to bet:
When the cards are turned over at the end of the game, each player puts together the best hand using his face-down cards and the community cards. It is possible to use one of the following combinations: two face-down cards and three community cards, one face-down card and four community cards, or just the community cards. The winner is the player with the highest scoring combination.
If there is any controversy over the proceedings, the final decision is made by the House. The House has the right to intervene or suspend the game at any time for technical or other reasons. The execution of the game is regulated by internal rules, which are subject to change at the discretion of the House. The gaming tables are covered by a CCTV system.
The highest score is decided on the basis of the following scale in ascending order:
- HIGH CARD HAND: when no one has any pairs.
- ONE PAIR: two cards of the same rank.
- TWO PAIR: two pairs of cards of the same rank.
- THREE OF A KIND: two cards of the same rank.
- STRAIGHT: a consecutive sequence of 5 cards.
- FLUSH: any 5 cards of the same suit.
- FULL HOUSE: three of a kind plus a one pair.
- FOUR OF A KIND: four cards of the same rank.
- STRAIGHT FLUSH: five consecutive cards of the same suit.
- ROYAL FLUSH: five consecutive cards from 10 to Ace, of the same suit. In this case the Ace is placed after the King, so as to give it the value of the fourteenth card.
