Texas Holdem Online Gambling

by Jerry "Jet" Whittaker

Texas Holdem online gambling

The game concept itself is pretty simple and very popular too. Each player is dealt two cards face down it is called pocket cards. The dealer then deals five community cards face up like these are available to all the players to help make their hand. Players can use any combination of their pocket cards and the community cards to make their hand. The best 5-card hand takes the pot, but the game is a little more complicated than that, and as usual the complications revolve around money. In poker lobby, one may have noticed three different options under the limit column. These options represent the three different Holdem games that are offer like Fixed Limit, Pot Limit and No Limit. The game type one selects will dictate the bet minimums and maximums for that game.

Types of holdem gambling

The stakes are tied directly to the game type one select. For a Fixed Limit game, the stakes dictate the bet and raise amount for each round. In Fixed Limit games each round of betting can consist of one bet and has a maximum number of three allowable raises, known as the cap. The blinds are mandatory bets posted by two players at the start of each hand prior to the cards being dealt. The player directly to the left of the dealer posts the small blind that in a Fixed Limit game is half the small stake rounded down to the nearest dollar. The Button is a graphic symbol that represents the theoretical dealer. After each hand the button moves clockwise to the next active player who becomes the dealer for that hand. The dealer deals each player two cards face down. Only the player can see his or her pocket cards. After the cards are dealt the action lies on the player after the big blind. This player must decide whether to call, raise or fold the big blind. Each player in turn is given these options, until all bets are called and the big blind checks. Now the dealer turns over the first three community cards, called the flop. The fourth community card is dealt and a new betting round begins. The bet amount for Fixed Limit games increases to the upper stake and betting continues until all bets are called. Here the final community card is shown and the last round of betting takes place. All the bets have been called; it is time to show the cards. The last player to bet or rise during the final round of betting will show his or her hand first. The player to the left of the dealer will show first. If during a betting round one makes a bet and all players fold to the person, then one has to bring the pot. One has the option to show or muck the cards
