Rules of Texas Hold'Em Poker (KOMENG Version)

Texas Hold 'Em (or Texas Holdem) is the primary version of Poker played in many casinos, including Casino U BLOCK A.

These are the basic rules for Texas Hold 'Em Poker by KOMENG version and can only be played in casino U BLOCK A.

The Shuffle, The Deal and The Blinds

The dealer shuffles a standard 52-card deck.
(In casinos, the dealer is allowed to play. There is no a round disc which is known as a "dealer button" .

Most Texas Hold 'Em Poker games start with the two players to the left of the dealer (the button) putting a predetermined amount of money into the pot before any cards are dealt, ensuring that there's something to play for on every hand. This is called "posting the blinds". In KOMENG version there is no “posting the blinds”.

Each player is dealt two cards, face down. These are known as the "hole cards". The first card is given to dealer. The dealer will start betting and followed by another players with the clockwise direction.

The Flop
After the first betting round, the dealer discards the top card of the deck. This is called burning the card and is done to ensure that no one accidentally saw the top card, and to help prevent cheating.

The dealer then flips the next three cards face up on the table. These cards are called the "flop."

NOTE: Eventually, a total of five community cards will be placed face up on the table. Players can use any combination of the community cards and their own two hole cards to form the best possible five-card Poker hand.

After the flop, another round of betting takes place, beginning with the dealer again. During this and all future rounds of betting, players can check, call, raise, or fold when it's their turn to bet.

Fourth Street
The dealer burns another card and plays one more face up onto the table. This, the fourth community card, is called the "turn" or "Fourth Street."

The player to the left of the dealer begins the third round of betting.

Fifth Street
The dealer burns another card before placing the final face-up card on the table. This card is called the "river" or "Fifth Street."

Final Betting and The Winner
Players can now use any combination of seven cards -- the five community cards and the two hole cards known only to them -- to form the best possible five-card Poker hand.

The fourth and final round of betting starts with the player to the left of the dealer.

After the final betting round, all players who remain in the game reveal their hands. The player who made the initial bet or the player who made the last raise shows their hand first.

The player with the best hand wins.
