POKER GAMES: TEXAS HOLDEM, OMAHA AND 7 CARD STUD
 

Texas HoldemTexas Holdem

Texas Hold'em is a variation of poker with 5 community cards in the middle of the table and each player has a personal hand of only two down cards or “Hole Cards.” The winner is the last active player in the hand after everyone else folds, or the player that shows the best 5 card poker hand, using any combination of his personal two card hand and the 5 cards in the community board.

The mechanics of the game are handled by the Online Site’s Poker Client. This software moves the button, prompts the players to post their blinds, deals the cards and then prompts each player to Fold, Check, Call, Bet, or Raise as appropriate, with the proper amounts. Then at the showdown the Site’s Poker Client evaluates the hands for the winner. There may be computer or internet crashes but the software cannot make a mistake. If you think it did, check the Hand Histories which are available on every poker site.

I'm dealt A-A. OK, very cool.

OmahaOmaha

Omaha, like Hold'em is a community card game, with 5 community cards in the center of the table that can be used by all players. In Omaha each player is dealt 4 card hole cards and must make their best 5 card poker hand with exactly 2 cards from their personal hand, and 3 cards from the board. (This requirement often confuses Hold'em players when they first play Omaha.)

The mechanics of the game are handled by the Online Site’s Poker Client. This software moves the button, prompts the players to post their blinds, deals the cards and then prompts each player to Fold, Check, Call, Bet, or Raise as appropriate, with the proper amounts. Then at the showdown evaluates the hands for the winner. There may be computer or internet crashes but the software cannot make a mistake reading the hands. If you think it did, check the Hand Histories which are available on every poker site.
