Poker Rules and Information

Texas Hold ‘Em

The object of Texas Hold ‘Em is to make the best five-card high hand, using any combination from your two face-down cards and the five face-up "community" board cards. A designated dealer button is used to determine the betting position, the order of dealing the cards and the order of the blinds. The dealer button rotates clockwise after each hand.

Up to five more rounds are dealt, with a round of betting after each card. After all bets are acted upon, if more than one player remains, a showdown determines who wins the pot. When the best five-card hand is formed by the five community cards, all players still active in the hand share the pot equally.

Seven Card Stud

The object of Seven Card Stud is to make the best five-card hand out of seven cards. Before the first round of betting, each player is dealt two face-down cards and one face-up card. Three more face-up cards are then dealt, with a round of betting after each card. For the final round of betting, the last card is dealt face-down.

In Seven Card Stud high, the best five-card high hand wins the pot. In Seven Card Stud high/low, the best five-card high and low hands split the pot. In Seven Card Stud high/low split eight or better, the best five-card high and low hands with eight or better to qualify for low split the pot. The low hand must be unpaired, with no card higher than eight. If there is no qualifying low hand, the high hand wins the whole pot.

Omaha Poker

The object of Omaha Poker is to make the best five-card hand using two of your four face down cards and three of five "community" board cards. A designated dealer button is used to determine the betting position, the order of dealing the cards and the order of the blinds. It rotates clockwise after each hand. The rules are the same as Texas Hold 'Em, except that the game begins with four cards dealt face down to each player.

In Omaha high, the best five-card high hand wins the pot. In Omaha high/low split eight or better, the player having the best eight or better low hand splits the pot with the high hand. Low hands only qualify if they have five unpaired cards, with no card higher than an eight.
