Tips and Tricks


  • Hands are a Treasure – There is a hand ranking system. The Royal Flush (that is five cards of the same suit, ranked ace through ten) being the highest, the Straight Flush (five cards of the same suit of consecutive ranks). Then there is the Four-of-a-Kind followed by the Full House (that is three of a kind plus one par). The Flush, the Straight and the Three-of-a-Kind, Two Pair, One Pair, and the High Card or no pair. These are applied ini the Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Seven-Card Stud, and Five-Card Draw. In games like Razz or Deuce-to-Seven triple draw, however, the rankings are upside down, with the worst cardholder in the previous games being the winner.
  • Blinds and Ante Bets – Blind bets are forced to bet before dealing their cards. This applied in games such as Texas Hold’em and Omaha. Antes are for stud games, players place their bets before the hand begins.
  • Limit vs. No Limit – No limit games allow players to bet as much as they want, including the infamous “all in”. In pot-limit, there is a pot where players can only bet without tipping over.
  • Action – There are many different actions in the game of poker. This include:
    • Check: decline to bet
    • Fold: withdraw from the hand if another player has made a bet
    • Bet: placing your bet on the table
    • Raise: adding more chips, usually higher than the opponent
    • Call: matching the bet of your opponents to stay in the game
  • The Betting Rounds – In games like Texas Hold’em and Omaha, there are betting rounds such as…
    • Preflop: The bets made before dealing
    • Flop: The bets made after the three continuity cards
    • Turn: The bets made after the fourth community card
    • River: The bets made after the fifth and last community card
  • Table Stakes – Whatever amount you had during the start of the game is all you can bet, you cannot take out your wallet and add in some more
