Texas Holdem Rules: The Basics

Texas Hold’em Poker is a community card game that can be played with anywhere from 2-10 players.

1. One player acts as dealer. This position is called the button and it rotates clockwise after every hand.
2. The two players to the left of the dealer are called the small blind and the big blind, respectively.
3. These two positions require forced bets of a pre-determined amount and are the only players to put money in the pot before the cards are dealt (if no ante in place).
4. Every player then receives two cards face down. These are called „hole“ cards.
5. Once all hole cards have been dealt, the first betting round begins with the player sitting immediately to the left of the big blind. This player can fold, call (match the amount of the big blind) or raise.
6. Betting then continues clockwise, with each player having the option to fold, call the amount of the highest bet before them, bet or raise.
7. When the first betting round is completed, three community cards are flipped face up on the table. This is called the flop.
8. The second round of betting begins with the first remaining player seated to the left of the button. The betting resumes, clockwise, with each player having the option to check (if no bet in front of them), bet (or raise if a bet before them), call or fold.
9. When the second round of betting is finished, a fourth community card is flipped face up on the table. This is called the turn.
10. The third round of betting commences with the first remaining player sitting to the left of the button.
11. When the third round of betting is over, a fifth community card is flipped face up on the table. This is called the river.
12. The fourth round of betting starts with the first remaining player seated to the left of the button. The betting continues to move clockwise.

How to make a hand

Players combine their hole cards with the community cards to make the best possible 5-card poker hand. Both hole cards, one hole card or no hole cards (play the board) can be used to comprise a hand.

poker rules for the showdown?

me and my m8s had a argument over a rule whilst playing poker:
we had dealt the river card and one person bet and the other person called
the person who bet just mucked his cards then the other person left pushes his cards forward with out showing so i turned them over and told them ya have to show two cards to claim a pot there were sayin i dosnt matter the other person folded which then i sed u still havr to show two cards which they argued about can someone explain

admin answers:

At every casino I’ve played at (all of AC, most of Vegas), it’s like you said– you must always show two cards to win the hand, even if the other player mucks. If both players muck then it’s a split pot, the 2nd mucker doesn’t get the whole pot. (But usually if the 2nd person starts pushing his cards in, the dealer will tell him to flip them over. Or if he only shows 1 card, the dealer will tell him to show both.)

And no, the last aggressor doesn’t have to show unless the other guy asks to see them before they hit the muck. There are two drawbacks to asking– one, if the person had a winning hand and didn’t know it, the hand is now live, and two, it’s bad etiquette and pisses people off.

Charles asks…

Is hiding poker chips in texas hold em against the rules?

In Texas hold’em if you have your chips on the table and keep a few out of sight of the other players is that breaking the rules?

So say i have 5 chips in sight. I raise the 5 chips (without saying i’m going all in). And everyone sees it and I lose. Can I then show my other chips and continue playing. Or is this against the rules?

admin answers:

I agree, I don’t think it’s an official poker rule or not, but many places have it a house rule that poker chips and cards must be in plain sight at all times.

Even if it’s not a rule where you play, many players will independently consider it unsportsman-like.

Every player at the table has the right to know exactly what everyone else has. They shouldn’t have to ask every time. They should be able to look over and see for themselves.
