Your Questions About Poker Rules

Daniel asks…

When you play poker online or in Vegas what kind of game of poker is it? Texas hold em or ?

What is the most common game you can find (version of poker) and what are the rules ?

admin answers:

Online, you can find tons of different types of games. There’s Omaha, in which you get 4 cards to yourself..then five cards are put out on the table..first 3, then one..then the last. You make your hand by using any two of your cards and any three of the cards on the table. There’s also Stud, in which you get 7 cards all together and make the best 5 card hand out of them. BUT the most common game, and the game you’ll run into more than any other game is Texas Hold’em…especially in Casinos. The rules are fairly simple. You’re first dealt two cards (or hole cards)…there’s a round of betting before three cards are laid on the table. Another round of betting and another card is laid down…once again, another round of betting, then the last card is laid down, making 7 cards all togther…your two and the 5 on the table. Finally, there’s one last betting round before everyone flips their cards..the best 5 card hand out of the 7 cards available to the player wins.

Please someone help me understand the rules of Poker? In layman terms :-)?

admin answers:

Well, there are a lot of rules when it comes to actual play. Such as when to bet, how many cards you get, and wildcards. What you should first try to know is, what is a better hand in order to win.

The most popular Poker that you see lately is Texas Hold-em. This just means the style of play is different, but the rules to winning are the same. Poker is usually played with a five card hand. So, in order from the best hand to the worst:

Royal Flush – This means that you have the Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and Ten of the same suit. VERY, VERY hard to get! (Exactly, bet everything!)

Straight Flush – Means that you have cards of the same suit, but in order. Like having the 8, 9, 10, Jack, and Queen of diamonds or having the 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 of hearts. Again, VERY hard to get!

4 of a kind – Four of the same cards. For example, four tens, four Jacks or four two’s. (Different suits, of course)
If two people have four of a kind, they get rated with the Ace being the highest, followed by King, then Queen, all the way to the two being the lowest.

Fullhouse – This just means that you have three of the same cards, plus a pair. For example, you have three six’s and a pair of Aces, or three Jacks and a pair of Tens.

Flush – This just means that you have five cards with the same suit, but no order. Like if you have 2, 5, 10, Jack, and Queen of clubs. (If they were in order, that would be a straight flush.)

Straight – You have five cards in order, but not of the same suit. Like 4 of hearts, 5 of diamonds, 6 of clubs, 7 of diamonds, 8 of spades.

Three of a kind – You only have three of the same cards, like three 7’s or three 5’s.

Two pair – Just like it says, you have two pairs. Two 2’s and Two 8’s, or Two Aces and Two 9’s.

No pair – If no one has anything, the winner is determined by the highest card in their hand. For instance, one hand has Ace, 10, 7, 5, and 2. The second hand has a Jack, 9, 7, 6, and 4. The winner would be the first hand, because it has an Ace. If both hands have an Ace, then the second card is compared, and so on and so forth.

As you can see, the trick is to play the odds of trying to get a better hand. The better the hand, the harder it is to get. The rest of Poker is all about betting on what you have in your hand and bluffing. Bluffing means pretending you have a good hand when you really don’t. I’d tell you more about „bluffing“, but that’s an entirely new and huge topic.

First learn these rules. The art of bluffing is something that I’m sure a lot of people will have something to say about.

Charles asks…

About some rules in Texas Holdem Poker?

1. What happens when a dealer accidentally uncovers a card: for example a dealer accidentally shows a river before all people bet.
You show your cards: the player is folding and he shows the cards to others while throwing them away, when others are still playing
sorry missed „2. “ at the beginning of the second sentence 🙂

admin answers:

On number 2, the cards that were thrown away face-up are shown to all players to make sure that no one gets an unfair advantage as a result of being among the few (or only) to see what the cards were.

I’m not sure on Number 1, but my guess would be that the bets for that round are returned, and the pot is split among all players who were in at the start of that round.
