Poker is definitely the world's most famous way of card gambling. This is a combination of both luck and skills.
If poker is one of the most famous card games in the world, definitely the most well-known and well liked variation is Texas Hold'em.
Fuelled by popular TV events like the European Poker Tour and the PokerStars the variation of Texas Hold'em has become the most common form of poker in both traditional casinos and on the Internet.
The rules of Texas Hold'em are not complicated. This variation of poker is a simple game and need only a few minutes to get to know all the rules.
The most characteristic feature of Texas Hold'em is that on the table appear so-called face-up „community cards” ie. 5 cards on the table and visible to all players.
In addition, each player receives to hand 2 face-down cards that are known and visible only to him – hole cards. All players in the game use the five community cards in combination with their own hole cards to lay the best possible five-card poker hand.
Experienced players knowing their hole cards, seeing the community cards as well as relying on the observation of the other players style of play is able to assess the likely strength of your hand and even predict the behavior of other players.
In Hold'em, as in other forms of poker, you can „check”, „fold”, „call”, „raise”.
The game can participate from two to ten people. Before the game you must determine which of the players will be symbolic "dealer" in the deal. However this does not mean, that this player actually has to physically deal cards (cards at online casinos are dealt automatically).
Dealer’s place is marked with a special disc - token "buton" or "dealer buton". Before we start the game the player who occupies a position next to the "dealer" pays forced contributions called "Small blind" and the next player after him makes "big blind". Always two players must pay the first blind bets. As a result, in each deal there is "something to win." Dealer Button rotates clockwise after each hand, changing the position of the dealer and blinds, so that each of the players from time to time is the dealer, pays the small and big blind.
At the time when "the small and big blind" are in the pot, each player is dealt two cards face down -so-called hole cards or hold card - own cards for viewing only by their owner.
At this point, the player has the opportunity to play the first, ie. checking the big blind or raise and thus take part in the hand or fold.
Next, five community cards are gradually dealt to the center of the table.
First on the table are dealt three cards face-up so-called "Flop".
These three community cards are available to all players who are taking part in the hand. The flop is followed by a second betting round begin with the player to the dealer's left.
After the Flop betting round ends, a single community card (called the „Turn”) is dealt, followed by a third betting round starting with the player directly next to the dealer and continue clockwise.
After the Turn betting round ends, next community card (called „River”) is dealt. It is the last community card. Betting round starts again with the player to the dealer's left. Same rules applying as the flop and turn betting.
After the last – River betting round each player plays the best poker hand they can make from the seven cards comprising their two hole cards and the five community cards.
The player who has the best hand wins the whole pot, and thus wins the hand.
Without a doubt we can say that the poker variant of texas holdem is a fantastic entertainment brings big emotions. Therefore, if you are looking for a game that raise your adrenaline, it it is actually designed for you.
