Texas Hold 'em Game Rules
$5 Buy In Gets You $200 Worth of Chips
The first dealer will be the person who was dealt the first face card.
The person to the right of the dealer has the option of cutting the cards prior to the deal. The dealer will ante $3 to start the game.
Two cards will be dealt, face down, to each participant. Once all players have two cards, the person to left of the dealer must put in $2 (or more) in order to play and this continues until the betting gets back to the dealer who does not have to put in again, unless there has been a raise.
At any time, an individual may raise by putting in more than the required number of chips. Once the betting is over, the dealer will bury one card and then deal three cards face up in the center of the table. Betting will then commence with the person to the left of the dealer starting the betting.
After the betting is over, the dealer will bury a card and then turn one card face up in the center of the table and betting will commence in the same fashion as before. When the betting is over, the dealer will bury the top card and turn one card over, face up, in the center of the table. This is the last card that will be dealt. After all bets have been made, the last bettor will show his/her hand first followed in clockwise order.
The winning hand will be the best poker hand made from the 2 cards held by the player plus the 5 exposed cards. Regardless of how the player calls his hand, the cards will "speak for themselves" to determine the winning hand. The deal then passes to the person left of the dealer.
There is no maximum bet and a player can go "all in" at any time. Side pots will be created if there are more than two players and the two players who called the "all in" hand can make separate wagers in the side pot. The original "all in" hand does not share in the side pot. Buy-ins can be made till 3:00pm , if the player has $50 or less in chips.
