Texas Hold 'Em is a type of poker game that can be played with 2-10 players. The dealer can either be a designated dealer who does not play or the dealer can be a player. Texas Hold 'Em is called a community game which means that there are community cards that everyone who has bet or checked into the hand can use. It can be played with either a limit or with no limit, the later of the 2 being the one you'll see on TV.
Texas Hold 'Em follows the poker set of winning cards: high card, pair, 2 pair, 3 of a kind, straight, flush, full house, 4 of a kind, straight flush, Royal Flush.
Texas Hold 'Em is played with a set of rules which may vary in some cases. The cards are dealt either to the left of the dealer or to the left of the button which is used in designated dealer games. There is then a round of betting after which the dealer burns, or discards a card, and shows 3 cards face up on the table which is called the flop. Another round of betting happens after this and then the dealer discards another card and shows another card face up called the turn. This same process is repeated and the last card is called the river. A final round of betting follows and players still in the hand reveal their hands to see who wins the pot.
In almost all poker games Texas Hold 'Em ha...
Each player is dealt two cards, face down, three cards are then placed in the center of the table, face up. Then two more cards are dealt.
Another popular version is No Limits Texas Hold 'Em, where a player has the option to go all in which means that they bet all their chips.
Game has become very popular recently due to ESPN's televised World Series of Poker from Las Vegas. Also, Bravo's Celbrity Poker.
The game is the most popular form of Poker today, publicized largely by the movie Rounders and the World Series of Poker. Also called "Hold-Em'" or "Texas" for short.
There's no other game in which fortunes can change so much from hand to hand. A brilliant player can get a strong hand cracked, go on tilt... and lose his mind along with every single chip in front of him. This is why the World Series of Poker is decided over a No-Limit Hold 'Em table. Some people, pros even, won't play No-Limit. They can't handle the swings. But there are others, like Doyle Brunson, who consider No-Limit the only pure game left. Like Papa Wallenda said..."Life is on the wire. The rest is just waiting."
