TEXAS HOLD’EM

BASICS

Texas Hold'em is the most widespread variety of poker around the world. If you want to get into the poker world, this is the right game to get started.
The game consists of 4 betting rounds: Pre-flop, flop, turn and river. Later we will see these rounds in detail.
At the beginning of each round, cards are shuffled, "Blinds" (the first required bets, also called "dark" and "blind") are placed in the pot, each participant receiving two hidden "Hole cards".
After the first two cards are dealt, the dealer will open three cards at the centre of the Board table. These cards are called "Flop" cards, they are common cards and can be used by all players to combine them with their cards in order to achieve the best possible combination.
After the flop there is another round of bets, the second round.
The dealer opens the fourth card "Turn", which is also common and can be used by all players.
A third round of betting begins. When the round ends, the dealer opens the last card common to all players, the “River", and starts the fourth and final betting round.
In the end, "Pot" is awarded to the person who has the best combination.
The dealer dealt clockwise, the blinds are placed and a new deal begins.
 
Below is a short list of terms used during a Texas Hold'em game.
 
Pot
The sum of the money in the centre of the table which the winner of the game will receive.
Actions
The bet, indicates the turn of the player who can choose to bet, call, check, raise or fold.
Bet, Fold, Check, Call, Raise
The selections of the player in turn: "Fold" when he leaves the game. If a player has not bet yet, then the player can "Check" (to deny the bet but to keep his cards, or to bet.) If a player has bet already, then the other players can do Fold, Call or Raise. "Call" to stay in the game without raising the bet on the pot, than the previous player has bet, and in the "Raise" case, the player can bet by increasing the amount of the previous bet.
Blinds
They are the first forced bets for the two players to the left of the dealer. There are two kind of bets, the "Small blind" and the "Big blind" which are determined before the cards are dealt.
Flop
After the first round of betting, the dealer has three cards on the table. These cards are common and can be used by all players.
Community cards
They are the open cards at the centre of the table (five in total). They can be used by each player to combine them to their two hidden cards.
The Dealer Button
It is a tablet marked by a "D" and rotates on the table clockwise and indicates which player is the game's dealer. Cards are dealt clockwise, starting from the player immediately to the left of the dealer. At the end of the round, when the pot is awarded to the winner, the dealer moves the button immediately to the left. This is how the dealer changes in each hand and there is the advantage for all the players to be the last player in the round.
Turn
It is the fourth community card placed on the table and the third betting round.
River
It is the fourth and final round with the fifth community card opening at the table.

 

RULES

At each table there is a dealer with two hands to each player (Hole Cards), which remain hidden for opponents until the end of the game. Then five cards will be opened on the table which are common to all players (Board). In order to form the final combination, any combination of five cards out of the seven available to the players (two in hand and five below) can be used.
Blinds must be set in order to start the game. The first player on the left puts the small blind and the second player the big blind. The small blind is half the big blind. The options that players have at this stage are to call, that is to put the same amount as the big blind or to raise it or to fold (leave the game).
As long as everyone has spoken, the players are on the blinds are next. The player has the same options to call, raise or fold. However, the player who is in the big blind, because he has already put up the full amount, can either raise it or stay as it is, if no bet has been made and check.
If a player increases the amount, the options that the other players have are either to put the same amount or re-raise, which means to raise that amount again or fold.

Pre-flop

The first betting round begins immediately after all cards are dealt to each player. The first player to act is the player to the left of the big blind, which has three options:
Call: to place the big blind amount
Raise: Raise the bet, within the specified limits of the game
Fold: to fold
The amount a player can increase depends on the game being played, but usually must be at least twice the big blind.
When the first pre-flop is completed and all players have put the same amount, it is then placed in the centre of the table and called pot.
Flop
The next round starts with the dealer opening up three obvious cards that are common to everyone (flop). The player in the small blind speaks and the options for the players are to remain as they are (check) or raise. The amount collected from this round is collected together and put in the remaining pot.
Turn
Then follows a third round, the turn, with the dealer opening the fourth card common to everyone and the players speak the same order as the previous round.
River
The last round of betting, the river, with the dealer opens the fifth and last card that is common to everyone. After all betting rounds are completed, players show their cards (showdown) and the player with the best combination of five cards wins the game and gets the pot. If there are more than one winners, the pot is split equally (Split pot).

 

POKER OMAHA

The rules of Omaha poker are surprisingly similar to Texas Hold'em.
A player who is already confident with the rules and strategies of Texas Hold'em will have no particular problem on how to play Omaha (sometimes called Omaha Hold'em).
 

BASICS

The main difference between Omaha and Texas Hold'em is regarding the Hole Cards (as in Hold'em), Omaha players receive four cards face down instead of two.
This rule, in the final hand of Omaha, makes it easier for players to make a better combination, as they have to choose between nine cards instead of seven.
There is also a version of the game called Omaha Hi-Lo that has slightly different requirements.
The basic rules are the same in all variations of Omaha, except that there are different betting structures among its variants.
