Texas Holdem Rules  




Texas Holdem Rules


Hold'em, also known as Texas Hold'em, is widespread poker game. Each player is dealt with two cards facedown (e.g. hole cards) and five cards dealt face up. Players are using their best five cards gathering any combinations using hole cards (two cards dealt facedown) and five cards dealt openly. Each player's five-card hand competes with other players' hands. The best five-card hand among all players wins the pot. A common advantage of Texas Holdem against other poker games is its clear-cut simplicity, while elder poker games have thousands of complicated rules, odds, hidden obstacles and tricks. For this and a couple of other advantages, Holdem Poker has gained wide popularity among gamblers from all over the world. Professionals say that it is only about a couple of hours needed to learn the game. For this reason we have put game rules, guides and instructions for the game. Rules are divided and subdivided in easy categories for you to learn Texas Holdem at ease. Easy rules structure and spacious FAQ are directed to make you a skillful player. The common tip to use rules is to be patient and watch each line thoroughly without missing any character. Remember, knowing game's rules is an important, even necessary condition to make a success. Whatever you play for - money or fun, rules and guidelines will be needed to enjoy the great game of Texas Holdem to the full.

To start with - read the following passages starting with first. You can start with any of them, of course, but there is certain sequence of chapters, so it should be better to start from the very beginning and proceed up to the end.

Holdem game consists of four betting rounds.. In limit Holdem one bet and three raises are allowed for each betting round. To proceed playing, players must call all the action to them on each betting round, unless they are "all-in". Here is the sequence of the game.

1) Before dealing the cards, the Small and the Big blind are placed in the pot by the two players to the immediate left of the dealer. The dealer button indicates dealer's position. (A yellow disk marked with a "D")
2) All players are dealt with two hole (also known as pocket) cards. The round begins with the player to the left of the Big Blind. He calls or rises and the game proceeds in a clockwise order. The first betting round ends.
3) The dealer turns over three community cards (also known as flop cards). This is the second betting round. Beginning with this round of betting, the player to the left of the button acts first.
4)One more card known as "turn" or "the fourth street". In Limit version of Texas Holdem, amount of bets doubles on the "turn" betting round. This was the third betting round.
5) The dealer turns over the last card (known as "The River" card or "Fifth Street"). This is the final round of betting. 6) The fifth and the last card is dealt. This card is commonly known as "river" or the "fifth street". The final betting round ends.
7) Showdown - dealer compares players' hands and declares the winner. Best hand wins the pot.

Showdown takes place after all bets equalization. All remaining players (also called "active" players) are showing their hands. The best hand wins the pot and dialer declares the winner. In case if there is only one player remains after any of Texas Holdem rounds - the showdown is canceled and the pot is awarded to that remaining player. All players use his pocked cards combined with community cards to gather the best five-card-hand using both, one or none of his hole (two cards dealt facedown) cards, he started with. In case if player used none of two blind (hole) cards - he/she plays the "board".

The scheme of the whole game process to understand the sequence of turns is here.

The Small and the Big Blinds being posted
 
Players are dealt with two cards facedown each
 
First betting round occurs
 
The flop (three cards) being dealt face-up
 
Second betting round occurs
 
The "turn" (fourth community card) is dealt
 
Third betting round occurs
 
The "river" (fifth and final community card) is dealt
 
Final betting round occurs
 
Showdown


At the showdown common Texas Holdem rules are indicating such variants of cards usage:
-three flop cards and both hole cards
-four flop cards and one of hole cards
-only flop cards are used (the board is played)

Check and raise leads are allowed in all of Texas Holdem games, except of the first betting round. On first round player is owed either to bet or fold. Bet prompt always indicates the maximum allowable wager and the lowest allowable wager specified in the Bet window.

Texas Holdem Dealer always holds the seat at the top of the table and deals all players. Dealer's position (also known as dealer's button) starts at dealer's left and proceeds clockwise one player after each hand.

Starting the hand, each player is dealt with two blind (hole) cards in a clockwise direction starting from the dialer's button. Players new to the game are owed to either post the equivalent of the big blind or wait till their turn in the big blind. This game's feature was developed to avoid players cheat by avoiding the blinds and jumping in and out of games. Each betting round begins after all players are dealt. Hand starts with first dealt card and ends when pot winner is declared.

Burning Card

Burning Card - Revived live Texas Holdem room grip - the dialer burns (cancels) one card at the beginning of each betting round. Unlike land-based rooms, online software includes effects of burning cards.

Dealer Button
Dealer Button is a yellow disk labeled with a "D" letter, which moves clockwise round the table from player to player at the beginning of each hand. It is used to identify the current position of dealer, as if the player against it were actually dialing the cards. Such position against the dialer button is widely known in appearance of an idiom "to be on the button". After each hand completed, the button moves one position to the left. Means that if you was "at the button" it will move to the player on your left.

Betting Order
Texas Holdem game is always dealt in a specific order. Betting has specific order too:
Blinds are the forced bets made by players to the left from the dialer button. There is a possibility to bet the big blind, which should be bet to the left from blind.

Determining missing blinds, you should know that Texas Holdem players are required to post the small and the big blinds once per round, or their equivalent for reentry to the game, n case if the blinds were missed. You will be prompted by software in case if your blind missed in order to put in the correct bet amount. You have an opportunity to wait until the next blind comes to get your position. In gambler's slang this can be called "to come on the blind", as this idiom is also used to determine your arrival into the game.

In the beginning of the first round, after all players in blind positions have made their blind deposits to the pot, each player is dealt with two hole cards. At this time each player can see the cards, except of the opponents' cards, of course. Only first round betting starts with the player to the left of the big blind. This player has opportunity to call, fold or rise. On the first round, that player, who is on the small blind position is allowed to act after the button. The player on the big blind position acts following that of the small one.

Right after the betting round starts, you are owed to select one of the following options: raise/check, call or fold.

Holdem player who has the big blind is able to rise, call, check or fold on his turn. The big blind is able to check or rise if nobody rises during the turn.

In all rounds except of the succeeding round, the betting is started with the first active player on the left side of the dialer button. This player has three choices - check, bet or fold. All succeeding players have the same choices until the bet. After the bet is made, succeeding players have one of three choices in turns each separately.

After all betting was made and in case if there are more than one player is still in the game for the pot, the showdown determines the winner. The last opening or rising player is owed to show cards first, while any of other players can fold - drop his cards face-down, what mean's he thinks that he has lost.

The following passage contains short list of Texas Holdem hands.

Straight Flush:
Straight with all five cards in the same suit.
Four of a Kind:
Four cards of the same number or face value ("quads").
Full House:
Three cards of one number or face value and two cards of another number or face value. If more than one player has a full house, the full house with the highest ranking three of a kind ("trips") wins.
Flush:
Five cards of the same suit. If there is more than one flush, the hand with the highest card(s) wins.
Straight:
Five cards in sequence. Cards can be in any suit. An Ace can be used in the highest straight (10, J, Q, K, A) and the lowest straight (A, 2, 3, 4, 5).
Three of a Kind:
Three cards of the same number or face value ("trips").
Two Pair:
If two players have two pair, the hand with the highest pair wins. If they have the same high pair, whoever has the second highest pair wins. If they have the same two pair, whoever has the highest fifth card ("kicker") wins.
One Pair:
Two cards of the same number or face value. If two players have the same pair, the highest outside card(s) wins.
High Card:
The hand with the highest card(s) wins.






It's a standard. However, many casinos hold rooms of modified rules. I wonder if there's less than 50 types of Texas Holdem played all over the US. Hey, Rasti, what d'u think about?

The community cards show two pair and an ace. Two players both have a Queen; one has a 7; one has an 8; Because the community cards are higher, do the two players split the pot?

Kim A (UT)

the board has two pair, Jacks and Tens with a 9c. two other players have A 4 and A 5 respectively,I have pocket 7s who wins the hand? natasha_powell@msn.com

Natasha (GA)
30.12.2004 10:43:32



Natasha : the winning hand is the top five cards that make the best hand possible, if the board is ( j j 10 10 9 ) p1 has ( A 5 ) p2 has ( A 4 ) and p3 has ( 7 7 ) : the top five cards are ( j j 10 10 A ); both the jacks and the tens beet p3's 7's and the best fith card is the Ace, so it is a split pot between p1 and p2.

I'm new to Texas Holdem and I'm having trouble understanding two things: 1) What if a player who must post a blind has chips (money) left, but not enough to post the blind. Is he out of the game? 2)I'm not clear on how "all in" works. If, let's say, P5 is all in, but all previous players (P1, P2, P3, P4) have more money in the pot, do those previous players take the difference out of the pot and make a separate pot? What if 2 or 3 players go all in with different amounts? Are several different pots created? I would really appreciate if someone could please give a clear explanation of all this? Thanks.

what if the board has 2 pairs q's and 9's and 4 player one has no cards matching board p2 has 7 4 what is outcome>???

james (waco tx)
08.01.2005 20:52:16



Ralph, simply put you can only win what you put in. Ex. P5 goes all in with $10, p1 and p2, are small and big blind at 5 and 10 resp. P3 goes all in with 15, and p1 and p4 drop out. p5 can win his 10 plus p2 and p3's 10, he can also win the small blind (p1). this is the mainpot. p2 can call the additional $5 to be placed in the side pot between he and p3. At this time all cards get flipped and a showdown occurs. Hope that you can make sense of my example.

dog (Pa)
10.01.2005 12:59:02



Thanks dog. I really appreciate you helping me out. That is sort of how I thought it went. That helps, but I'm still not sure about wierd scenarios. In your example scenario, when P3 goes all in with 15, am I correct in assuming that 10 of his money goes in the main pot, and 5 in the side pot? Also, what if we are at the second round of betting and P2 raised the bet to $20 and at that time P3 goes all in with 15 and P5 goes all in with 10? Does P2 take $5? $10? out of the main pot to start the side pot? Is there more than one side pot then?... because you now have a situation where at least 3 different players have different amounts in?

Ralph (Pa)
10.01.2005 14:45:36



What happens when a player who was supposed to post a blind next hand is eliminated? p1 posted small blind, p2 posted big blind and went all in and lost. p3 should be the next to post big blind but who posts small blind or is it not posted?

blinds are 5 and 10.1 player has only 4 left.why is he allowed to get in with only 4 left when everyone else has to call the big blind to see a flop.just because he is short stacked,why can he see the flop for 4 and no one else can.

If both players are using a pair on the board and a card in their hand matched with one on the board, can they use a high card on the board or do they have to use the other card in their hand to determine the winner.

I was under the impression that minimum raises (in no-limit games)are uqual to the big bling,for example: if big blind is $50,and someone makes a legal raise of $500,if I want to raise-that-raise is my minimum total bet $550(which is the 500+50)or is the minimum of my raise going to be a total bet of $1000..also..if again the big blind is $50 if someone wants to open the betting after the flop,can he bet like $75 or since this appears to be a raise ,doesnt it have to be at least $100 if he has enough to do that?

when you deal the cards and one flip up do you reel deal

chas (ohio)
10.04.2005 07:32:04



ok...this should help a lot of you....you use your 2 hole cards + the 5 community cards to make the best possible five card hand. You can use 2 from your hand and 3 from the board, 1 from your hand and 4 from the board, or all 5 from the board could be the best hand you can make. If the board is 5 5 J J A and if no one has a 5, J, A or pocket pair in the hole....it's a SPLIT POT! You devide the pot evenly...if it doesn't divide evenly the extra chip goes to the first guy to the dealer's left (that's still in the hand). Now sidepots with pre-flop action....if the blinds are 100/200 and the guy in first position (1st guy after big blind) has 150 chips and goes all in...players behind him still have to call the 200 big blind to see the flop. If there is 1 caller plus the 2 blinds plus the guy all-in in the pot (making a total of 4 people in the pot) The mainpot that everyone could win is 600 (150 x 4) and the side pot would be 150 (50x3) which everyone except the guy all-in can win. There would still be betting after the flop, turn, and river and those chips would go into the side pot. If a player folds, he has no chance at winning either pot. Now, when it comes to turning up a card preflop...if you accidentally flip up a card when dealing, it's ok. We're gonna say there are 5 people at the table including the dealer. If you deal to the small blind then to big blind then to the next guy (p3) you flip up his card....you drag that card back to you, keep it face up on the table, let everyone know that card is exposed, and continue to deal to p4 then to p5, then to the sb, then bb, then p3 (this will be his 1st card), then to p4, then to p5...now everyone has 2 cards except for p3...now you deal him the card from the top...and the exposed card is the 1st burn card...after making sure everyone saw it....you can turn it face down now. Also, straights consist of FIVE cards...you can't go around the block (KA234) Aces are high or low...A2345 or 10JQKA. When it comes to flushes, a flush A,Q,10,8,5 beats a A,Q,9,8,5 flush. All cards in a flush matter. If the board has Ad Qd 8d 5d 2d...whoever has the highest diamond in their hand wins the pot...because it would replace the 2 in making the best 5 card hand..if no one has a diamond, it's a split pot...if the board is Ad Qd 10d 8d 7d and no one has a diamond higher than the 7...it is a split pot. If someone has a diamon higher than the 7, it goes to the player with the highest diamond.

if P1 goes all in with 10$ and P3 takes P4 all in also for 20$, i know a side pot is made for P1 but if P1 wins, and P2 has a better hand then P3 does he win all of P2's money or do they split the non-side pot because neither of them had the best over all 5 card hand

What is the official rule about taking chips out of your stash and placing them aside out of play? Do you have to keep all chips on the table or can you cash some of them out.
