The Fundamentals In A Texas Holdem Game
Understanding the texas holdem odds and texas holdem hands are the key factors in playing the Texas Holdem Game. In the Texas Holdem Game, suits are treated equally. In the event that cards are equal in value, a tie will be declared.
You can get Royal Flush by having an Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten in the same suit at hand. If it is not the above-mentioned cards, but still five cards in sequence of the same suit, it will then be called a Straight Flush. In a Texas Holdem Game, ties happen. If two players showed two Straight Flushes, the highest rank at the top of the sequence wins. There is also a Four of a Kind. This happens if you have four cards of the same rank, and one side card. Whenever there is a tie, the one with the highest value of the four cards wins. In community card games where it is possible to have the same four of a kind, the highest side card wins.
Three cards of the same rank, and two cards of a different, matching rank makes up a Full House. In a Texas Holdem Game where two players tie with a Full House, the one with the highest three matching cards wins. In case it is a community Texas Holdem Game, and the players have the same three matching cards, the one with the highest value of the two matching cards wins.
A Flush is composed of five cards of the same suit. If it is a tie game, the player with the highest ranked card wins. If their first cards have the same rank, then move to the next, or to the third, so on and so forth.
Having five cards in sequence but not the same suit is called a Straight. The one with the highest-ranking card at the top of the sequence is considered a winner in case it is a tie. You need to take note that the Ace may be used at the top or bottom of the sequence, and is the only card that can be used in this way.
Earlier, we mentioned the Full House, which is a combination of three same ranked cards and two matching rank cards. If it is just three same ranked cards with two unrelated side cards, it will be called the Three of a Kind. So same rules apply when it is a tie. Highest ranking three of a kind wins. But in a community Texas Holdem Game, if the players shows the same three of a kinds, the highest side card, and if necessary, the second-highest side card, will decide who is the winner.
Two cards of a matching rank and another two cards of a different matching rank and one side card is called a Two Pair. As you guessed, the highest pair wins. If they have the same highest pair, then check the second highest. If they are still the same, the one with the highest side card is the winner.
Second to the lowest groups of cards is the One Pair. You can get this by having two cards of a matching rank, and three unrelated side cards. As we all know by now, highest pair wins. If players have the same pair, the highest side card wins, and if necessary, the second-highest and third-highest side card can be used to break the tie.
Any hand that does not qualify under these categories is called the High Card. If the players all have High Cards, the one with the highest card wins, and so on and so forth if it is still a tie. Remember that this list of hands and odds is arranged depending on their level of strength in the Texas Holdem Game. What I mean is, a Royal Flush is higher than a Straight Flush, and next will be the Full House, and so on and so forth.
