If you follow these 6 steps at Texas Hold'em, you win!


First betting round

The dealer (indicated by the dealer button) deals two cards to each player, no-one except the player who receives the cards can look at those cards.

The player on the left of the dealer places the first bet (the small blind) that equals to the amount of the smallest chip.


Second betting round

The player on the left of the small blind places the second bet (the big blind) which is the double of the previous bet.


Step 1

1st betting round

The first player to start is the player sitting to the left of the one who placed the ‘big blind’.
The players play one after the other until they get to the first player who placed the 'small blind'.
This player has the choice between ‘folding’, ‘calling’ or 'raising'.
The player who has placed ‘the big blind’ can either ‘fold’ or ‘call’.
If the player who placed the small blind raises, the other players can either ‘pass’ or ‘call’.


Step 2

The Flop

This is when the current dealer of a round places 3 cards face-up on the table.


Step 3

2nd round

For this betting round, the first player, still in the game and on the left of the dealer starts.


Step 4

The Turn

This is when the dealer places the 4th community card on the table. It is called the 'Turn''.


Step 5

The River

The dealer places the 5th community card on the table. This last card is called ‘The River’.


Stage 6

The Showdown

This is when the cards are shown. The round is completed when a bet or a re-raise has not been followed. The players then show their cards and once the chips have been won by the winner of the round, another hand starts.

Omaha Poker has the same rules than Texas Hold’em with 2 exceptions:

1. The players have 4 pocket cards instead of 2.

2. In order to have the best hand the players have to use 2 out of 4 pocket cards and only 3 community cards. Texas Hold'em, on the contrary, allows the use of 5 community cards instead of 3.

Omaha Poker is one of the most often played games at Tournaments and Championships like the WSOP.

Omaha Hi/Lo has the same rules as standard Omaha, but there are several ways of sharing the pot.

The winner of the Hi hand is the player with the best ranking hand, as in Omaha or Texas Hold’em. But in addition to that, the winner of the Hi hand can also win the Lo hand. The Lo hand is a hand with 5 different cards below 9. You can use the 2 'pocket' and 'community' cards to improve the Lo hand. In any case, you need to use 2 'pocket' cards.

For example : 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8 of any colour will be the Lo hand. The Lo hand with the lowest ranking hand wins. In the case of one Lo hand winner, the players split the Pot 50/50 between the Lo hand winner and the Hi hand winner.

In the case of many Lo hands, the winner for Lo hand is determined by comparing the highest of all the lowest ranking cards , subsequently the second highest ranked hand, etc... If there are two or more equal Lo hand winners, then the pot is split between them.

There will certainly be no Lo hand winner at each time. Thus, a player can have 2 different cards or the same pocket cards in his/her hands to play Hi and Lo, in addition to any other 3 community cards.

The Pot Limit is different from the No Limit because of the amounts of bets and raises.

The minimum raise is the previous amount raised or the bet in the same round.
For example, if the first player bets £10, the second one can bet a minimum of £10.

The amount of the maximum bet is the total of the pot + the total amount of other players' bets during the round + the amount called by the player. For example if the pot is £50, then the first player bets £10 and the second bets £10, the third player can raise above £80 (£50 in the main pot+ £20 of bets from the 1st round+£10 from the player's own raise).

Pot Limit rules don't change in the last betting round, as it is the case with Pot Limit.

Read More

The difference between no limit and limit is that there is no maximum amount for each raise (apart from the level/amount on the table).

The no limit rules don't change in the last betting round, as they keep changing in limit.

5 Card Stud is a variety of poker that shares a lot in common with 7 Card Stud. As the name suggests, the game is played with 5 cards. All the cards that are dealt are hole cards and there’s no community card. The main differences between 5 Card Stud and 7 Card Stud are as follows:

The number of cards dealt at the beginning of the game: 2 cards instead of the 3 that you get in 7 Card Stud The number of rounds of betting: 4 instead of the 5 that you get in 7 Card Stud

5 Card Stud is played with a maximum of eight players.

The Ante

Before the players get their starting cards, they have to lay down the ante. This is a compulsory bet that starts the game and begins the building of the pot.

1st Round

Once the ante has been laid down, two cards are dealt to each player, one face-up and one face-down.

The player with the lowest face-up card has to lay the "bring-in". This "bring-in" starts the betting. Note: In the case of a draw between two cards, the decision is made according to the suits. In ascending order: clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades. Then the player to the left of the player who laid the "bring-in" acts first. This player can raise, call or pass. Then the other players act in their turn (moving clockwise round the table). They can call or raise. There can only be three raises at most. Once three raises have been made, the players have to either call or fold.

2nd Round

A third face-up card is dealt to each player. The player who acts first is the one with the best hand showing, that is the best combination of two cards showing. Then the other players act in their turn. There can only be three raises at most. Once three raises have been made, the players have to either call or fold.

3rd Round

A fourth face-up card is dealt to each player. The third round of betting takes place. The player who acts first is the one with the best hand showing. Then the other players act in their turn. Once three raises have been made, the players have to either call or fold.

4th Round

A fifth and final face-up card is dealt to each player. The final round of betting takes place. The player who acts first is the one with the best hand showing. Then the other players act in their turn.

The Showdown

The first player to reveal his or her cards (the four face-up cards and the one face-down card) is the one who made the last bet or raise. By default this is the opening player or, if not, the player with the best hand showing. The player with the best hand takes down the pot. In the case of a draw between hands, the pot is shared equally.

7 Card Stud is a very popular variety of poker. As the name suggests, the game is played with a total of 7 cards. 7 Card Stud is played with a maximum of eight players and there are five rounds of betting. All the cards that are dealt are hole cards and there’s no community card (except in rare cases - see the note for the 5th Round below). The dealer for the game is selected by each player drawing a card and the player with the lowest card is then the dealer. This player will then deal the cards starting with the player directly to his or her left.

The Ante

The Ante is the first bet that the players make and it is compulsory. To get his or her cards, all the players have to place this bet.

1st Round

Three cards are dealt to each player: two cards face-down and one card face-up. The player with the lowest face-up card has to lay the "bring-in". This "bring-in" starts the betting. Note: In the case of a draw between two cards, the decision is made according to the suits. In ascending order: clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades. Then the player to the left of the player who laid the "bring-in" acts first. This player can raise, call or pass. Then the other players act in their turn. They can call or raise. There can only be three raises at most. Once three raises have been made, the players have to either call or fold.

2nd Round

A fourth face-up card is dealt to each player. Then there is a round of betting. The player with the best hand showing acts first and then the other players act next in their turn. There can only be three raises at most. Note: From the second round of betting, the players can double their bet if a player has a pair showing.

3rd Round

A fifth face-up card is dealt to each player. Then the third round of betting takes place with a maximum of three possible raises. The player with the best hand showing acts first and then the other players act next in their turn. There can only be three raises at most.

4th Round

A sixth face-up card is dealt to each player before the fourth round of betting takes place. The player with the best hand showing acts first and then the other players act next in their turn. There can only be three raises at most.

5th Round

A seventh and final face-up card is dealt to each player. Then the final round of betting takes place. The player with the best hand showing acts first and then the other players act next in their turn. There can only be three raises at most. Note: At this stage of the game, if all eight players are still in the hand (this rarely happens) and there aren’t enough cards left to deal to everyone, the dealer deals one face-up community card. This represents the players’ seventh card.

The Showdown

The players who are still in play reveal their cards to compare their hands - this is the showdown. The player with the best hand takes down the pot. In the case of a draw between hands, the pot is share equally.

The rate is the fee taken from the games involving real money. The rate applies to the games a player took part in and for which the House has generated at least €0,01 rate for this player.

The rate charged is calculated by dividing the total of rates taken during the game by the number of players who have received the cards.

We do not charge a rate if the hand ended before the 'flop' cards were dealt ( 'No flop no drop').

Example : 8, 9, 10, J, Q
Three of a kind
Three cards of the same value.
Example : KH, KD, KC

Six Plus Hold’em is a variant of Texas Hold‘em that uses a reduced deck. Instead of the standard 52 card deck, all cards with the values of 2,3,4,5 ( 4 deuces, 4 treys, 4 fours and 4 fives) are removed from the deck, resulting in a 36 card deck, where the lowest card is 6 and the highest A. ​
Six Plus Hold’em has a slightly different hand ranking from the classic Texas Hold’em: The two major differences are that “Three of a kind” now beats a “Straight”, and “Flush” beats a “Full house”. This is implemented to make up for the changed probabilities of hitting, due to the reduced deck as compared to classic Hold’em game with 52 cards.
