How To Deal Texas Hold Em
This VideoJug film is designed to show players the basics of how to play the card game Texas Hold ‘Em. Watch the video and learn how to play in a simple manor of time.
So, the basics of Texas Hold ‘Em always start with a nominated dealer if you are in a casino or card room environment. One of the players in front of them will have a dealer button, this is what it's called and this is where the action actually starts. So he'd be the nominated dealer for this particular hand.
Now, one to the left of the dealer is the small blind, two to the left of the dealer, left of the small blind, is called the big blind, and usually, the small blind is half the value of the big blind. And that basically sets the action up for each hand of Texas Hold ‘Em, ok? So, in this particular set up, we've got ten seating positions, so we deal to ten players. So, each player will receive two cards face down.
The dealer always gets his cards last. So, as you can see, I've dealt out twenty cards. Before any other cards are shown on the community, the person to the left of the big blind, it's his decision to basically take out what he wants to do.
In this particular set up, the blinds are one thousand, two thousand. In a tournament, that would be pretty standard in the latest stages. Let's have a look at where are we, seat three, seat four, let's have a look at what he's got, 10, 3.
Not much of a holding. In Texas Hold Em, your starting hand values are very, very important. You're looking for big cards, pairs of aces, pairs of kings, ace king, pairs of queens, that kind of hand you're looking for.
Ten, three, not much of a hand. Nine, five, not that great. Jack, seven, no good, that'd be folding.
Now, queen, jack, not trying to get too complicated here but as you get further around the positions in Texas Hold ‘Em, so increases the value of your hand. Because for example, if seat number 4 had a marginal hand like queen, jack, what we're showing, if he's going to raise or get into the pot, he's now got to go past nine other players before he gets to the blinds, when he gets to the blinds, thus giving him less chance of coming up against a really strong hand. So, a queen jack later on has a higher value.
So, queen jack, he may raise here, so we look at some other hands. Now, ace queen, two big cards, you may want to raise or re-raise with this particular hand. Going around the rest of the hands, no, these are folds as we race around front, seven, three, around to the blinds, six, eight, no good, seven, duece.
Now, let's just say queen jack and ace queen go to the flop. Now, the flop is the community cards, so in Texas Hold ‘Em, you make up the best five card hand of the seven available. And those seven are made up of the two in your hand and the five on the board, the community cards.
The first three cards are called the flop, you burn the top card, the reason you do that is just in case there's a marked card on top of the pack so the players can't distinguish what the next card is, and there are three cards on the board. There would be a series of betting, folding, etc. Then we deal the turn card, the fourth card and then if there are still players left in the pot, you would deal the riffer.
And then if there's no betting at the end, the best of five card hand, in this particular case, ace queen would win this because the best five card hand is pair of kings, ace queen, and a six, where this hand can only make queens with a king jack, so in that order, basically, that's Texas Hold ‘Em. .
