Aug 17, 2007
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.

Texas Hold'em, or simply holdem, is a favorite poker game among people who frequent casinos. A fast action game, Texas Hold'em places much emphasis on the player's starting cards, which help determine who the winner of the game is. The Official Texas
Hold'em rules require each player to take turns as dealer.

How the games works according to the Official Texas Hold'em Rules

According to the Official Texas Hold'em Rules, the first part of the game involves the dealer button which indicates who among the players is the dealer. The Official Texas Hold'em Rules require the dealer to deal each player two cards which are called pocket cards. These pocket cards must not be revealed to other players during the course of the game, as stipulated in the Official Texas Hold'em Rules.

After the pocket cards are dealt, the Official Texas Hold'em Rules require that the first betting round is initiated by the player to the left of the dealer. According to the Official Texas Hold'em Rules, this is the part of the game where the 'small blind' and the 'big blind' are placed.

After the small and big blinds are in place, the Official Texas Hold'em Rules require the dealer to now deal three community cards to the center of the table and face up. According to the Official Texas Hold'em Rules, these cards are called the 'flop.' The second betting round will now start.

The Official Texas Hold'em Rules will require the dealer to deal a fourth community card, called the 'turn' once the second betting round is completed. The players will use these four community cards and their two pocket cards to start building their 5-card poker hand.

In the Official Texas Hold'em Rules, a third betting round will commence and after which, the dealer will turn over the fifth and final community card. According to the Official Texas Hold'em Rules, this card is called the 'river' and will signal the players to start the final betting round. At the showdown, after the final betting round is done, the Official Texas Hold'em Rules requires every player to reveal their poker hands.

How betting works according to the Official Texas Hold'em Rules

In the Official Texas Hold'em rules, there are 4 rounds of betting. The first 2 rounds requires player to make bets or raise based on the lower limit of the stakes structure. However, at the last 2 rounds, the players can increase their bets or raise according to the higher limit set in the stakes structure. According to the Official Texas Hold'em Rules, each player is allowed 4 options in betting - a bet, a raise, a re-raise, and a cap, which is the final bet. When a pot is capped, the Official Texas Hold'em Rules require the rest of the players to do only two things - call or fold.
