Texas hold ’em is also known as hold’em or holdem, and is a variation of the standard card game of poker. In Texas Hold’em, two cards are dealt face down to each player and then five community cards are placed by the dealer—a series of three additional single cards (“the flop”), then two additional single cards (“the turn” and “the river”), and players have the option to check, bet or fold after each deal, meaning betting can occur prior to the flop, on the flop, on the turn, and on the river.
A high-octane game that continues to grow in popularity. Similar to Texas Hold’em with one key difference: in a Omaha game, you get four hole cards, and you can only use two to comprise your final hand.
This is the traditional game of poker – the one that you probably first learned (as opposed to the most popular form of poker, arguably Texas Hold’em). Here, each player is dealt two cards face down, with one face up card. After a bring-in and a betting round, three cards are dealt face-up with a betting round after each. The final card is dealt face down.
Razz is Seven-Card in reverse – the lowest hand wins the pot, and in Razz, it’s also A-2-3-4-5 (straights and flushes are null and void).
There are a lot of different games available online. You can find a table for just about anything you feel like playing & everyone has their favorites. One of the most popular games out their is Texas Hold’em. There are a lot of people who only get down when this is the game being played. I am one of those people. The other day I stumbled across a table with some of my favorite competition sitting at it & I could not help but sit down too. I got some chips & when I started playing there was nothing I could do to catch a break. I seemed to keep getting bad hands. I did not want to play some bad cards so I just sat there watching the hands go by. I must have been there for a couple of hours at least & I never got a hand to play.
