How to Beat Texas Poker Regularly and Consistently

Jul 18, 2008
Poker has become one of the most exciting games that anyone can play. There are simple rules of the basic game which apply to playing all the variations of poker. A very slight rules change for each version of the game makes it an easy game for people to play.

Very simple layout of the game can make it easy to play. Not depending upon the number of cards dealt or the version played, these steps are applicable to all versions. If a player knows the basics of the game of poker, he or she can become good enough to learn to bluff like a professional.

Depending upon table size, there can be any number of players. There must be a dealer to call who won each hand and to pass out the cards. In non-professional or casino poker the role of the dealer passes from player to player in a clockwise fashion.

After the dealer has shuffled them, the player to the right of the dealer cuts the cards. All the players place the ante into the middle. At this time, either the players can wait for the dealer to begin the game or they can bet, what is called a blind bet.

Then, depending upon the version played, the dealer deals out the appropriate number of face down cards. Another bet is made or the players check. Checking means that the players do not feel the need to bet on the cards that they have.

Checking or betting is done after each face up card is dealt or after the cards have been exchanged. When betting the players bluff their opponents. Bluffing is betting so that the other players assume you either have a great hand or a very bad hand.

Bluffing is what differentiates this game from any other card game. There are other games that involve bluffing but they involve dice. The name of poker derived from the French word Poque, which means to bluff.

Through the game, then the betting player wins the hand if one player bets and everyone else folds. Calling is when a player will bet the same as the first bettor or raises the bettor's bet. Folding is when a player thinks his cards are not good enough to continue.

A showdown happens when all the players have either folded or the last bet has been made. The showdown is when the players must show their face down cards to see who had the best hand. The best hand wins the pot and if everyone wants to, the game starts over again.

Players bet by using chips that represent the money with which they are playing. Once a player has bet all their chips, they have gone "all in." If they player who has gone all in loses their hand, they are then eliminated from the game.

If you know the basic rules of game play, poker is not a hard game to play. Knowing when to bluff and when to fold your hand is the hardest part of the game. Unless you have developed your talent of bluffing, it is not recommended to use poker as a means of income.
