How To Master Casino Hold'Em

For starters, it’s important to understand how the betting works. You’ll begin by placing what is known as an ante bet, in other words, a bet before the play even begins. Once you’ve placed this bet, you’ll receive a pair of hold cards, as will the dealer. You won’t get to see the dealer’s hand though. Also, 3 community cards will be dealt. These are known as the flop.

At this point, the only decision you’ll need to make is whether you will play the hand or fold. Your decision is based only on what you’re seeing. So this is where your tried and tested poker intuition comes into play, as well as your experience with and understanding of the game.

If you don’t have the best pair and don’t have a good feeling about the hand and you fold, your only loss will be the ante bet. If your choice is to go ahead and play the hand, you’ll be asked to place an additional bet, which is double the ante bet. And this is where it gets exciting!

You’ll be sitting on the edge of your seat in anticipation when those last 2 community cards are dealt, because they, as well as what the house holds in its proverbial hand, will determine your fortune. You’ll now get to see the house’s hand. If your 5-card hand is stronger than the house’s, you’ll win, but if your hand is lower, then you’ll lose. Simple as that.

There is another element that comes into play in Casino Hold'Em. For you to even come up against the house, the house needs to actually quality to even play. To qualify, the house needs at least a pair of fours, and if it doesn’t meet this minimum requirement, the player will win a payout which is based on the ante bet. Your play bet will be returned to you.

Casino Hold'Em is a version of skill and strategy. Although lady luck determines what you are dealt, you get to set the outcome in motion by making wise tactical decisions. Know the paytable and understand a few basic rules of playing, such as which cards never to fold and which are best to fold.
