The most popular poker game in the world is Hold’em, or as most of us who’ve seen it online or at a land based casino may know it: Texas Hold’em.

When it comes to playing Hold’em, there are 3 types of games with different betting types:

Limit – There is a specific betting limit for each game played and each round. For example a $.50/$1.00 has a $.50 Blind, the first round of betting and raises is $.50 and the subsequent rounds are upped to $1.00 bets.

Pot Limit – Players can bet a maximum, equal to the total pot at the time of their bet.

No Limit – Players can bet as much as they have on the table at the time of the bet.

Here’s how the game is played:

The 2 players left of the dealer place a ‘Small Blind’ and ‘Big Blind’ (blind, as in betting before seeing the hand), which for a $.50/$1.00 game would be $.25 and $.50 respectively.

Once the Blind bets are down, 2 cards are dealt face down to each player.

There is a betting round.

3 shared cards are dealt face up in the middle of the table in what is called ‘The Flop’.

There is a betting round.

A 4th card is placed face up in the middle.

There is a betting round.

The last card, or ‘The River’ card is placed face up in the middle of the table.

There is the final round of betting.

Note: In Texas Hold’em – betting, just like dealing, always proceeds in a clockwise rotation.
