What is Live Texas Hold’em?

Considered one of the most popular types of poker, Texas Hold’em is an easy and fun game to learn. Becoming an expert, however, is a different issue that requires skill and experience. That’s why playing online in a live casino offers the perfect place to discover the game’s ins and outs.
The rule variation in Texas Hold’em states that each player is dealt just two non-community cards, after which the betting can begin. The dealer then draws out three cards face up, known as ‘the flop,' before dealing two more community cards one at a time, with bidding initiated between each round.

Basic Rules of Texas Hold’em

The game is usually played with 9 or 10 players at a single table, although heads-up tournaments involving just two bettors are also common. A rotating blind system is used which comprises a big blind equal to the table’s minimum bet and a small blind which is half the amount.
After receiving their first two ‘hole’ cards, players must either call, raise or fold when it is their turn to bet. This process is repeated after every round until all five community cards are on the table. Remaining punters can use any combination of these cards with their own to form the best possible poker hand.

Basic Strategy of Texas Hold’em

As a beginner learning the ropes, a good basic approach is to play tight. This means only entering into the fray when you have been dealt one of the top 10 starting hands. As you become more accustomed to the game, you can begin to experiment with different strategies.
Be aware of your position on the table. Being last gives you the advantage of seeing everyone else’s moves before you make a decision. Play within your budget, look out for free rolls offered by online casinos and do some research. There are countless sites providing detailed articles to help elevate your game to the next level.

History of Texas Hold’em

As the name suggests, the game is thought to have originated in a small Texan town at the turn of the 20th century. Eventually spreading to the big cities, Hold’em became hugely popular in Dallas in the 1920s before becoming a permanent fixture in saloons across the country’s entire south west region.
In 1970, the World Series of Poker tournament took the betting world by storm, headlining Texas Hold’em as its main event. Since the more recent boom in online gambling, Hold’em has risen even further in popularity across the globe and still remains the most played casino game in the United States.

The Public Gambling Act of 1867 states that it is illegal to run or enter a public gaming house. Luckily for poker players, this law only applies to games of chance and poker is considered skill based. Regulations also vary across the country as each province can establish its own restrictions.
Several states such as Sikkim and the tourist hotspot of Goa have widespread land-based casinos. Players wishing to take part in cash tournaments from the comfort of their homes are also able to play online as many of the world’s biggest gambling sites offer seats at Texas Hold’em tables to Indian residents.
