Week 5 Presentation

  1. 1. HOW TO PLAY THE GAME Texas Hold ‘Em
  2. 2. CARD VALUE <ul><li>First of all, you must understand the values of the cards. Cards are worth more as the numbers get higher, Royal cards (Jack, Queen, King, and Ace) are worth more than numbered cards. The ace can usually double as the lowest card when necessary. </li></ul>
  3. 3. HAND VALUES <ul><li>Next, you should familiarize yourself with the definitions and values of different hands. The hands are, in order of increasing value: one pair, two pair, three of a kind, straight, flush, full house, four of a kind, straight flush and royal flush. I will now explain what cards each of these hands contain. </li></ul>
  4. 4. SINGLE PAIR A pair is any two cards that match in numerical order, regardless of suit.
  5. 5. <ul><li>Two pairs means two sets of cards, matching in numerical value, and one extra card. </li></ul>TWO PAIR
  6. 6. THREE OF A KIND <ul><li>Three of a kind refers to three cards of matching numerical value and two extra cards in the hand. </li></ul>
  7. 7. STRAIGHT <ul><li>A straight means that the hand contains five cards in numerical order, with the cards belonging to various suits. </li></ul>
  8. 8. FLUSH <ul><li>A flush refers to five non-sequential cards belonging to the same suit. </li></ul>
  9. 9. FULL HOUSE <ul><li>A full house is one pair, and three of a kind, both in a hand. </li></ul>
  10. 10. FOUR OF A KIND <ul><li>A four of a kind means four cards of matching numerical value. </li></ul>
  11. 11. STRAIGHT FLUSH <ul><li>A straight flush is a flush with all cards belonging to the same suit. </li></ul>
  12. 12. ROYAL FLUSH <ul><li>A royal flush contains the 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace of a single suit. </li></ul>
  13. 13. GAME PLAY <ul><li>One player acts as dealer. This position is called the button and it rotates clockwise after every hand. </li></ul><ul><li>The two players to the left of the dealer are the small blind and the big blind. They are the only players who have money in the pot before the cards are dealt. </li></ul><ul><li>Every player receives two cards face down. </li></ul><ul><li>The first betting round begins with the player sitting immediately to the left of the big blind, and continues clockwise. </li></ul><ul><li>When the first betting round is completed, three community cards are flipped face up on the table. This is called the flop. </li></ul><ul><li>The second round of betting begins with the first remaining player seated to the left of the button. The betting resumes, clockwise. </li></ul><ul><li>When the second round of betting is finished, a fourth community card is flipped face up on the table. </li></ul><ul><li>The third round of betting commences with the first remaining player sitting to the left of the button. </li></ul><ul><li>When the third round of betting is over, a fifth community card is flipped face up on the table. </li></ul><ul><li>The fourth round of betting starts with the first remaining player seated to the left of the button. The betting continues to move clockwise. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>You must ante something just to get dealt cards.  After the ante, the players will begin to bet into the pot in the middle.  At the end, the highest poker hand (that hasn't folded) wins the pot.  Basically, when betting gets to you (betting is typically done in clockwise order), you have one of four choices: bet, call, raise, or fold. </li></ul>
  15. 15. BET <ul><li>If you are the first player to bet, you would bet an amount within the betting limits of that particular. This amount goes into the pot. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Call <ul><li>When you call, you bet enough to match the total amount of what has been bet.  For example, if a player bet a quarter, you would call and put a quarter into the pot.  If another player raised your bet, you would put an amount equal to the raise into the pot (if you bet twenty five cents, and another player then bet seventy five cents, you would owe fifty cents). </li></ul>
  17. 17. RAISE <ul><li>When you raise, you first bet enough to match what has already been bet by another player, then you 'raise' the bet another amount. For example, if a player bet twenty five cents, you might call the twenty five cents and raise another fifty cents for a total bet of seventy five cents. </li></ul>
  18. 18. FOLD <ul><li>When you fold, you drop out of the current hand.  You lose any possibility of winning the pot, but you do not have to put any more money into the pot. </li></ul>
