If you want to choose a table on your own, you can select one at the table list.
There are two types of games you can play, i.e., Texas Hold'em and Sit-N-Go.
- Buy In and start the game
After choosing an available seat, you can select the size of your purse (Buy In)
- On the table
Texas Hold'em is played using a standard 52 card deck and between two to nine players. Before every hand, one player is designated the nominal "Dealer", identified by a marker known as the 'Dealer Button'. This person does not actually deal the cards (especially not online, where it is done automatically) but the position of the dealer determines which two players have to post the 'Blind' bets that get the action started.
The two players to the left of the dealer must post these compulsory "Blinds" (because they are placed before anyone even sees their cards.) The player on directly to the left of the dealer posts the "Small Blind" and the next position, to the small blind's left, is called the "Big Blind", which is twice the size of the "Small Blind".
After every hand is complete, the dealer button moves clockwise one position around the table, which means that player take turns to be the dealer, the "Small Blind" and the "Big Blind".
- Pre-flop (The first round of betting)
The first betting round takes place before the first three community cards are dealt. This action is described as "pre-flop" and at this stage players are betting based solely by their two concealed "hole cards". The player sitting to the left of the "Big Blind" acts first. Next players act in turn moving clockwise around the table.
Players have the following options when their turn to act:
CHECK : A players does not want to bet any more chips to the pot.
CALL : A players wants to play the hand by matching the size of the current bet. At Pre-flop, it will be at least the size of the "Big Blind", and may be more chips if any other player raised the bet.
FOLD : A player no longer wants to play the hand, and is throwing his/her cards away.
CALL ANY : A players will call whatever the amount of previous bet is.
CHECK/FOLD : A player will not bet any more chips so if any other player raised the bet, he/she will fold the hand automatically. If not, he/she will check the turn.
- Flop (Second round of betting)
After the first round of betting is completed, the first three community cards are dealt face up in the middle of the table. This is known as the "Flop". Another round of betting begins with the first player still in play to the left of the dealer.
- Turn (Third round of betting)
- River (Final round of betting)
When all bets have been made in the third round of betting, the fifth and final community card is dealt. This is known as the "River". A final round of betting begins, again starting with the first player to the left of the "Dealer Button".
Any players still with cards advance to "Showdown"
- Showdown & Poker Hand Ranking
After the last round of betting is completed, each player must form the best possible five-card poker hand, made from a combination of their two hole cards and the five community cards.
At this point, all players remaining must show their hands, so that the best hand can be determined. The player who has the highest ranked poker hand at showdown wins the pot. If more than one player has the same winning hand, the pot is split evenly among all the players with the winning hand.
When the current hand is completed, the "Dealer Button" is passed one position to the left and the next hand begins.
- Poker Hand Ranking
To win the Texas Hold'em Poker, you must have best 5 card hand. Players are given an opportunity to bet on their hands. Hands are rated according to the following scale:
From best to worst:
1. ROYAL STRAIGHT FLUSH : 5 cards from 10 to A in sequential order and the same suit
2. STRAIGHT FLUSH : 5 cards in sequential order and the same suit.
3. FOUR OF A KIND : 4 cards of the same rank
4. FULL HOUSE : 3 cards of the same rank + two cards of the same rank.
5. FLUSH : 5 cards of the same suit
6. STRAIGHT : 5 cards in sequential order. Aces can either come before a 2 to start a straight or after a King to end a straight.
7. THREE OF A KIND : 3 cards of the same rank
8. TWO-PAIR : 2 cards of the same rank + 2 cards of the same suit
9. PAIR (2 OF A KIND) : 2 cards of the same rank
10. HIGH CARD : If you have no hand stated above, your highest card is considered to be your hand. For example:
"High card Ace" or "High card Queen".
In any hand that does not use all 5 of the player's cards, the highest leftover card is called the "Kicker".
The Kicker is used to compare ties. In some cases it may need to include your top two or three leftover cards (this would happen if both players have the same Kicker).
The following hand is:
'A Pair of 10s with a Jack Kicker' or 'A Pair of 10s with a Jack, Seven Kicker'
In all of the illustrated hand examples given above, the higher hand has been given first.
Straight, Flush, Straight-Flush
Player with the highest rank card wins (an Ace acting as '1' in a Straight is considered low).
2-Pair, Pair, Three of a Kind, Four of a Kind
Compare the matching cards for the highest card. If there is still a tie, compare the Kicker cards.
The highest set of 3 wins. If both players have the same set of 3, then the highest set of 2 wins.
If both players have the exact same hand, then both players win and the pot is split evenly between them.
