• Compete in Texas Hold’em

    In texas hold’em, the first step is to get the card game started, and for this the competitors put out a specific sum of money. ‘Posting the blinds’ is the commonly used saying for this play. In the following step, the dealer shuffles the deck of cards and gives out two cards face down to all players. A regular deck of 52 playing cards is used in the deal. Then there is the first sequence of betting. This sequence is usually referred to as a "pre-flop".

    After the first wagering round, the top card is discarded. This discarded card is referred to as the "burn card", and this is done to guarantee that there is no treachery. The following three cards are then flipped face up on the table. These cards are known as ‘the flop’. Now follows a 2nd sequence of betting, after that the croupier throws away a further card and deals 1 more card onto the poker table. Following this, competitors can use the sixth card to create a 5card poker hand.

    Another sequence of wagering happens, and in a good many styles of games, here is where the wager amount doubles. There is another round of throwing away a card, and a closing deal of a card face-up on the poker table. This is referred to as the "river". Gamblers can now make use of any of the 5 cards on the poker table, and/or the two cards that they hold, to form a 5card poker hand.

    To wrap it up there’s a further round of betting. Then, all the remaining players begin to reveal their hands. This is known as the "showdown". Obviously, the competitor who holds the strongest hand wins. When players have equal hands a sharing of the winnings is considered.

    Texas Holdem is a basic game to pick up, but to achieve expertise it requires a large amount of practice.
