The Texas Holdem Poker Rule

Aug 17, 2007
Texas hold 'em (or simply hold 'em or holdem) is the most popular of the community card poker games. It is the most popular poker variant played in casinos in the western United States, and its no-limit form is used in the main event of the World Series of Poker (abbreviated WSOP), widely recognized as the world championship of the game.

Texas Hold-em can be a lot of fun. Please always play with the intention of having fun and leave the heavy gambling to the pros. Many lives have been destroyed because of addiction to gambling.

Have you seen Texas Holdem Poker? If not yet, then you better try to watch Texas Holdem Poker on the ESPN and the Travel Channel. But if you have some interested in joining such game, then you better read this article about the Texas Holdem Poker rules for your advantage.

Before anything else, it is important to note that the Texas Holdem Poker is actually the version of Poker that is played in many casinos and seen on the Travel Channel' World Poker Tour and ESPN's World Series of Poker. For those who wanted to know the Texas Holdem Poker rules, here they are.

First things first, you should know about the Shuffle, the deal and the blinds for these are the first important things that the overall Texas Holdem Poker rules hold. Under this Texas Holdem Poker rule, the dealer shuffles a standard 52-card deck. In line with that, this Texas Holdem Poker rule states that most of the Texas Holdem Poker games begin with a couple of players to the left of the dealer, which is actually the button, placing a predetermined amount of money into the pot prior to any cards that are dealt. This Texas Holdem Poker rule holds that this act is important to ensure that there is something to play for on each hand. Under this Texas Holdem Poker rule, this act is known as "posting the blinds". Also, under this first Texas Holdem Poker rule, the "first blind", who is the player to the left of the dealer, puts up the minimum bet, and the "second blind" puts up the full minimum bet. With this Texas Holdem Poker rule, each of the players is dealt two cards that are face down, and which are known as the "hole cards".

As the gambling starts, the Texas Holdem Poker rule holds that if a round of betting takes place, starting with the player to the left of the two who posted the blinds, the players can call, raise, or fold when it is their turn to bet.

Furthermore, under the Texas Holdem Poker rule, after the first betting round, the dealer cancels the top card of the deck. This act is called burning the card and is usually done to make sure that no one of the players accidentally spotted the top card, and also to help prevent cheating. Other moves to complete the Texas Holdem Poker rule are maintained, and lastly, the Texas Holdem Poker rule remain to its level until the player who has the best hand wins.

Poker is the game closest to the western conception of life, where life and thought are recognized as intimately combined, where free will prevails over philosophies of fate or of chance, where men are considered moral agents and where - at least in the short run - the important thing is not what happens but what people think happens. ~John Luckacs
