Texas Hold’em (Limit, No Limit & Pot Limit)

Game Description
Hold’em is a Poker game in which each player receives two cards as his initial hand. Each player will use his two hole cards along with the five community cards to form the best five card poker hand. The board cards are dealt in three sequences known as the “flop” (first three cards), the “turn” (fourth card) and the “river” fifth card.

Betting Structure
In order to start the betting action, Hold’em uses what are called blind bets (blinds) to stimulate action and initiate play. Blinds are posted before the dealer deals the first cards. Blinds count as part of the player’s bet unless the structure of a specific game or situation requires part or all of a particular blind to be “dead”. Dead chips are not part of a player’s bet.

Blinds are posted by players who sit in consecutive clockwise order from the dealer button with the first player posting a predetermined amount called the “small blind”. The next person in order posts what is known as the “big blind”. Action is initiated on the first betting round by the player on the immediate left of the big blind. The blinds act last on the first betting round and are “live”, which means the player is allowed to raise his own blind bet.

In Hold’em there are four rounds of betting. The first round of betting takes place after each player has been dealt his initial two card hand. The second betting round takes place after the “flop” has been dealt. The third round of betting takes place after the “turn” card has been dealt, and the fourth and final round of betting will take place after the “river” card has been dealt.

After the final round of betting has been completed, a player may use any combination of five cards to determine his best hand.


Omaha (Limit, No Limit & Pot Limit)

Game Description
Omaha is a Poker game in which each player receives four cards as his initial hand. Each player MUST use a specific combination of five cards; any two out of his hand and any three from the board (community cards) to form the best five card poker hand. The board cards are dealt in three sequences known as the “flop”, the “turn” and the “river”; these are the same as in Hold’em.

Betting Structure
The betting structure for all Omaha games will follow the betting structure rules as described in the Hold’em section.

A player may NOT use all of the board cards (“playing the board”) because the only combination of five cards allowed is: two from the hand, three from the board.


Omaha high Low 8 or better (Limit, No Limit & Pot Limit)

Game Description
Omaha Hi-Lo is a Poker game in which each player receives four cards as his initial hand. Each player MUST use a specific combination of five cards; any two out of his hand and any three from the board (community cards) to form the best five card poker hand and also the best five card low hand. Omaha Hi-Lo will usually be played with a qualifier for the low hand, meaning in order for a low hand to qualify, it must contain five non paired cards all lower than a predetermined rank. If no player can make a low, the high hand wins the entire pot.

The board cards are dealt in three sequences known as the “flop”, the “turn” and the “river”.

Betting Structure
The betting structure for all Omaha games will follow the betting structure rules as described in the Hold’em section.

Players may use one combination of cards to make a high hand and the same or any other combination to make a low hand, as long as each hand uses exactly two hole cards.

Seven Card Stud

Game Description
7 Card Stud is a poker game in which each player receives his own seven cards. Each player uses his own seven cards to form the best five card Poker hand. The cards are dealt to each player in five sequences known as “3rd Street”, “4th Street”, “5th Street”, “6th Street” and “7th Street, or the River”.

3rd Street is dealt as the first sequence and consists of two down cards (other players cannot see these cards) and one upcard that all players see. 4th through 6th streets are dealt face up and consist of one card only. The 7th Street card is dealt face down.

Betting Structure
In order to start the betting action, 7 Card Stud uses what are called antes and bring-ins. Antes are posted by every player before he receives his cards and do not count as part of any future bets. The bring-in bet is used to stimulate action and initiate play. In 7 Card Stud, the lowest card by suit will be forced to start the action by placing the bring-in bet with an Ace counting as a high card for this purpose. The bring-in bet counts as part of the player’s bet if it should be raised.

On subsequent rounds, the high hand initiates action. If there is a tie, the player to the left of the dealer is first to act. The player with the forced bet has the option of opening for a full bet.

In 7 Card Stud there are five total rounds of betting. The first round of betting takes place after each player has been dealt his initial three card hand (3rd Street). The second betting round takes place after 4th Street has been dealt. The third round of betting takes place after the 5th Street card has been dealt. The fourth round of betting will take place after 6th Street, and the fifth and final round of betting takes place after 7th Street, or the “river”.

After the final round of betting has been completed, a player may use any combination of five cards to determine his best hand.
