  TEXAS HOLDEM POKER – PLAY ONLINE TEXAS HOLDEM POKER  

Texas Holdem poker is the best online poker game in the world.

Quite easily, the Texas Holdem poker is the number one option for the card players in the real casinos and in the virtual world. This poker game has steadily replaced the seven card stud poker game, to become the number one poker game of the world. The main area of distinction between the stud, draw and Texas Holdem poker game, is the community cards, the player can draw from the deck of cards and make his own hand. In of this version of the game, the player can make the best hand of five cards out of the seven cards dealt to him/her. For this the player is dealt five community cards and two hole cards. The Texas Holdem poker is widely used in the World Series of Poker and World poker Tour, which is televised worldwide, and this tournament utilizes the no limit betting form.

The objective of the master player while playing Texas Holdem poker is not to win every hand. The ultimate plan is to raise the level of pot in such a manner, that the final amount that the player earns is the biggest, through a series of calling, betting, raising the bet. The logical conclusion of the game is through the final round, wherein the players remaining have a show down of hand and whoever has the best hand, is awarded the pot. In case, the others have already folded up, the one remaining gets the pot.

The Texas Holdem poker employs the concept of forced bet by two players on the table, which uses the small and big blind bets. There is no separate dealer in this game and the dealer button changes position clockwise after the completion of each hand, there is a change in the position of blinds as well, after every hand. The player who is immediately to left of the dealer, posts the small blind which is usually half of the big blind. The big blind is then posted by the player, who is to the immediate left of the small blind. The big blind is equal to the minimum bet. This usage of two blinds in a hand is known as a ‘double blind’ structure, which is used commonly these days, in most poker games. At the end when only two players remain on the table, the ‘head to head’ rules are adopted and the posting of blinds is done differently. In a ‘head to head’ situation, the player with the dealer button posts the small blind, while the opponent posts the big blind. After the second round the situation is reversed and stays that way till the end of the hand.

The Texas Holdem poker game uses 52 cards deck with no jokers. In all there are 7 cards which the players can use to make a hand of five cards. To play the game, each player on the table is dealt with two face down cards to begin with; these are the only individual cards that the players would receive. The two hole cards are dealt to the small blind first and the dealer gets it last, after this dealing the first round of betting begins. The first two rounds of dealing cards to the players are known as ‘preflop’ and ‘flop’. In the ‘flop’ three face up community cards are given to each player and the second round of betting begins.

After the flop round of betting a single community card is given to each remaining player. The final card called the ‘river’ of the ‘fifth street’, is given to players, post which the showdown happens, if necessary.

There are three major variations of the Texas Holdem poker.
  • Limit holdem
  • No limit holdem
  • Pot limit holdem
