TEXAS HOLD'EM RULES

Texas Hold’em Poker is a community card game that can be played anywhere from 2 - 9 players. You can choose room 5 or 9 people to play Texas Hold’em at Ace Poker.

Every poker match (or other card game at Ace Poker) are called the Hand, as follows:

  1. One player acts as dealer. This position is called the button and it rotates clockwise after every hand.

  2. The two players to the left of the dealer are called the Small Blind and the Big Blind, respectively.

  3. These two positions require forced bets of a pre-determined amount and are the only players to put money in the pot before the cards are dealt (if no ante in place).

  4. Every player then receives two cards face down. These are called “hole” cards.

  5. Once all hole cards have been dealt, the first betting round (Preflop) begins with the player sitting immediately to the left of the big blind. This player can fold, call (match the amount of the big blind) or raise.

  6. Betting then continues clockwise, with each player having the option to fold, call the amount of the highest bet before them, bet or raise.

  7. When the first betting round is completed, three community cards are flipped face up on the table. This is called the Flop.

  8. The betting resumes, clockwise, with each player having the option to check (if no bet is in front of them), bet (or raise if a bet is before them), call or fold.

  9. When the second round of betting is finished, a fourth community card is flipped face up on the table. This is called the Turn.

  10. The third round of betting commences with the first remaining player sitting to the left of the button.

  11. When the third round of betting is over, a fifth community card is flipped face up on the table. This is called the river.

  12. The fourth round of betting starts with the first remaining player seated to the left of the button. The betting continues to move clockwise.

  13. If a player bets and all other players fold, then the remaining player is awarded the pot and is not required to show his hole cards. If two or more players remain after the final betting round, a Showdown occurs.

  14. On the Showdown, each player plays the best poker hand they can make from the seven cards comprising his two hole cards and the five community cards.

  15. The players have the best poker hand will become a winner and receive winning chips from the pot.
