TEXAS HOLD ’EM
In Texas Hold ‘Em, each player receives two down cards as their personal hole cards, after which there is an initial round of betting. Three board cards are turned simultaneously, which is called the “flop”, and another round of betting then occurs. The next two board cards are turned one at a time, with another round of betting after each card. The fourth community card is called the “turn” and fifth card is called the “river”. The board cards are community cards, and a player may use any five-card combination from among the board cards and personal cards to make their best five card poker hand. A player may even use all of the board cards and no hole cards to form their hand, which is called playing the board. A dealer button is used and the players to the left of the button must post the appropriate blinds as indicated by the blind structure of the game. The usual structure is to use two blinds, but it is possible to play the game with one blind, multiple blinds, an ante, or a combination of blinds plus an ante. Texas Hold ‘Em can be played with a no limit or fixed limit betting structure.
POT LIMIT OMAHA
Pot Limit Omaha is similar to Hold ’Em in using a three-card flop, a turn, and a river for five community cards. Each player is dealt four hole cards (instead of two) on the initial deal. In order to make a hand, a player must use exactly two hole cards and exactly three board cards to make their best five card poker hand. The betting rounds are the same as in Hold ‘Em, using a pre-flop, flop, turn, and river betting rounds. However, the betting is pot limit meaning that a player may only bet up to the size of the pot at any time. At the showdown, the entire four-card hand should be shown to receive any portion of the pot.
OMAHA HIGH/LOW 8 OR BETTER
Omaha is often played high-low split in a fixed limit or pot limit betting structure. The player may use any combination of two hole cards and three board cards for the high hand and another (or the same) combination of two hole cards and three board cards for the low hand. Straights and flushes have no ranking for the low portion, so the best possible hand is 5-4-3-2-A (also called a wheel). In order to qualify for the low, a player must have at least an 8 low or better. If no hand qualifies for the low, then the whole pot will be awarded to the high hand.
SEVEN CARD STUD (SEVEN CARD STUD HIGH)
Seven-card stud is played with a starting hand of two down cards and one up card dealt before the first betting round. There are then three more up cards and a final down card, with a betting round after each, for a total of five betting rounds on a deal played to the showdown. The lowest up card is required to make the forced bet on the initial betting round (called the bring-in) and the high hand acts first on all subsequent rounds. The best five-card poker hand wins the pot at showdown. In all fixed-limit games, the smaller bet is wagered for the first two betting rounds, and the larger bet is wagered for the last three betting rounds (on the fifth, sixth, and seventh cards). If there is an open pair on fourth street, any player has the option of making the smaller or larger bet.
RAZZ (SEVEN CARD STUD LOW)
Razz is played the same as seven card stud with a few differences. The biggest difference is that the lowest-ranking hand wins the pot at showdown. Aces are low only, and two aces are the lowest pair. The format is similar to seven-card stud high, except the high card is required to make the forced bet on the first round of betting, and the low hand acts first on all subsequent rounds. Straights and flushes have no ranking, so the best possible hand is 5-4-3-2-A (also called a wheel). An open pair does not affect the betting limit.
