Poker Hands in Texas Holdem
In the game of Texas Hold ’em poker, a starting hand usually consists of two high card cards, that belong exclusively to you and stay hidden from other players until the end of the game. After the initial round of betting, five community cards are dealt out to the players. Betting starts immediately after any of these cards have been revealed, and continues through the entire hand. Once all the five community cards have been revealed, the person with the most chips usually wins the game.
One of the most common among poker hands is the straight flush. This poker hand refers to a pair of cards that have all their face value together. Straight flushes occur often in full ring games. The best kind of strategy to use when playing with this poker hand is to have an early position, because by having an early position, you are always guaranteed to be paying the least amount of money. If possible, you should also try to blindfold your opponents before the game starts.
Another common Texas Hold’em poker hand is the four of a kind. This poker hand is similar to the straight flush, but only has the fourth ace in the middle, instead of all the way around. Four of a kind is often times dealt out in the first three community cards, and sometimes in the final two. It is considered as the most bluffing poker hand in Texas Holdem poker, since it’s impossible to tell whether a four of a kind is a real hand or not. Many players will fold if they think that the other person has a better hand than theirs.
The royal flush is another one of the more common poker hands. A royal flush occurs when all of the individual cards are in the same suit and total up to thirteen, including the queen. The royal flush usually occurs on the river card after the flop, when there is a strong hand against an aggressive player. This is when a player with a good raise and trap has got his opponent’s betting money on the line, leaving him to only have to call the flop and take out a couple of community cards.
The Omaha is also another of many popular poker hands in Texas Holdem poker. Sometimes called the big three, Omaha is played with the three best cards from the flop, two from the board, and one from the middle, making it a “pot” hand. Omaha is most commonly played with four players, and with good players, the Omaha can turn into something really powerful. In Omaha, each player has five cards to build their hand with. After the flop, each player has the option to take out any number of community cards from their own deck. Afterwards, the remaining combinations will be the combination that the two players face off in the final table.
