An important fact to mention is that land based casinos do not give you the chance to gamble without placing money in the pot, so before you get there, make sure that you are experienced at least to some higher degree in the field of Texas Hold'em. In what online casinos are consisting of, here you have the opportunity to play just for fun, without placing a deposit. This is extremely beneficial, because you have the chance to get used to the entire gaming process of Texas Hold'em, its rules and special techniques. Its main objective is to have the highest possible hand so that you can win the pot. The 'pot' is the particular sum of cash which is placed by every single player. As for the basic knowledge of Texas Hold`em, you need to know that altogether there are 52 cards, out of which every single card has a rank and a suit. The ranks are: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace. The suits are the following: Spades, Diamonds, Clubs and Hearts. For certain card combinations the suit plays a great role. In the game of Poker a 'hand' is consisting of 5 cards; even though at Texas Hold'em there are 7 cards that you are playing with (out of which two cards you hold and the other 5 are common to every single player). Now let's take a closer look at the process of the game.


The game begins with putting money in the pot by every single player, this first bet is called 'ante'. In addition, each player gets two cards which are face down (you can see only your own cards). Two round of bets take place, called 'blinds' and these are forced bets. After these the 'flop' follows where three face-up cards are dealt. These cards are common for every player; another round of betting takes place. The 'turn' is when the 4th common face-up card is dealt and players again place a bet. After this the 5th common card is dealt, this is known as 'river' and the players place their last betting. When these bets have been made, the 'showdown' begins, and at this point each player shows his cards. Depending on what kind of card combinations he can make, the one who has the highest hand is the winner and owns the pot. In order to make the best possible hand you must know the different kinds of hands. We enlighten you about these so that you can easier understand the specific card combinations; we start from the highest hand and end with the lowest one.
