As arguably the most common form of poker played today, Texas Hold ‘em is among the biggest casino games in the world today. It’s easily among the most popular games in the world, and is played by everyone from a pair of friends at home to a professional casino setting. Even that famous painting of the dogs are playing poker!
The game itself has become hugely popular today, and is known for having a pretty consistent set of rules regardless of where you choose to play.
The Rules of the Game
So, the main rules of the game are quite simple: every player comes with two cards dealt to them, dealt face down. Then, each player is given a chance to either Bet, Fold, or Check. Bet means you play a monetary value, check means you go along with the rest of the group to see what comes out, and fold means you pull away from that round and come back in with the next hand of cards.
Once this happens, the ‘flop’ is dealt, with the five cards that you are going to be capable of building a winning combination with coming out. What you do next and through each round is entirely dependent on what you have versus what is available on the table. If you feel like you can make a flush or a run work, then you could choose to either add to the bet, or simply match the bet that has been placed to continue on.
When all the betting is finished, you will be asked to show your cards and the person with the best selection of cards relative to what is available on the table will be declared the winner of that round. You keep playing until everyone else is out and someone is left last man standing, with all the winnings to call their own.
