Rules of Texas Holdem

Texas Holdem, Texas Hold’Em , 52-deck card

Texas Holdem or Texas Hold’Em is the prime edition of Poker played in several casinos across the globe. The game even featured in a couple of television shows such as World Series of Poker on ESPN and Travel Channel’s World Poker Tour.


Below mentioned are certain basic rules of Texas Holdem Poker:

In Texas Holdem, the dealer shuffles a usual 52-deck card, and players get two cards faced down known as personal hand (hole cards), after which the betting begins. Next, two board cards are reversed with a betting round.

Actually, board cards are community cards, and you can use any 5-card combination from the board or your personal cards. Next, you may also use all of the board cards without using any personal cards to create a hand.

You may use the dealer button, but the normal combination is to utilize two blinds. However, you may play the game with multiple blinds, an ante, or an ante along with a combination or just a single blind.

A misdeal may occur, if you show the first hole card. The dealer regains the card and reshuffles all the cards. In addition, the deal persists, if you expose any other hole card except the first one. However, remember that you cannot hold the exposed card. Hence, after the completion of a hand, the dealer substitutes the card with a top card placed on the deck, whereas the exposed card replaces the burn card. You will need to bet again, even if you expose more than one hole card.

Another vital rule is that, if the flop includes several cards, then you need to re-deal.

Next, if the dealer erroneously distributes an additional card to the first player, then that particular card will act as a substitute for burn card.

Finally, you need to announce that you are playing the board before showing your cards, or else you renounce all claims made to the winning pot.
