Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker is a online casino singapore poker game. It is derived from the classic player versus player poker, but instead, the player plays against the house in bonus hold’em. Specifically, Texas Hold’em Bonus is a derivative of the popular Texas Hold’em game, which is played with a regular 52 card deck, in which both the player and the dealer are dealt two hole cards and 5 community cards, with both parties having their own cards and use the 5 community cards to form your best possible 5 card sheet.
Game structure in Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker
First, the player places an ‘ante’ bet, and the dealer deals 2 hole cards to the player and himself. The player can then view his hole cards and decide whether to call or fold. If the player gets out, he ends his hand and gives up the ante bet. If the player wants to call, he must make a second bet equal to twice his ante bet; then the first 3 community cards are dealt by the dealer. The player then has the choice between ‘betting’ or ‘checking.’ If the player decides to check, the current bets will not be abandoned, and the hand will continue to play without increasing the bet, or the player may place an additional bet equal to the ante bet. After the player has made this decision, the fourth community card is dealt. The player is then offered the decision to bet or check for the last time on the river bet before the fifth community card is dealt.
Once the five community cards have been dealt, the player and dealer choose the 5 cards from their own hole cards and the community cards that give them the strongest hand. Regardless of the situation – even if the player and dealer are undecided – the remaining cards that are not used in the hands of the player or dealer will never be considered. The hands are then compared to determine the winner.
Order in Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker
Texas Hold’em Bonus arranges the hands according to a hierarchy common to poker games, briefly explained here (from the strongest to the weakest hand):
- Royal Flush – Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and ten cards of the same suit.
- Four of a Kind – four cards of appropriate rank (example – 7 in hearts, clubs, diamonds, and spades). If both the player and dealer have a four of a kind, the higher-ranked hand is considered the winner.
- Full House – three cards of the same rank and two cards of a different but the same rank (example – 8 in hearts, clubs and diamonds and jacks in spades and hearts).
- Flush – five cards of the same suit (example – ace, 8, 5, 2, and queen of spades). If both the player and the dealer have a flush, the hand with the highest card is considered the winner. If the highest card matches, the second-highest card is taken into account, and so on.
- Straight – five adjacent cards of any suit (example: spades 7, spades 8, clubs 9, diamonds 10 and diamonds jack). If both the player and the dealer hold a straight, the hand with the highest card is considered the winner.
- Drilling – three cards of the same rank with two non-matching cards (example – 9 in spades, clubs, and hearts with any other two cards that are not Karo 9 or a matching pair).
- Two pairs – two times two cards of the same value with one card that does not match (example – 4 in clubs and hearts, 8 in clubs and spades and a fifth card that does not match). If the player and the dealer both have two pairs, the hand with the highest pair is considered the winner. If both hands have a matching top pair, the higher of the two bottom pairs is considered the winner. If both pairs match, the hand with the higher ‘kicker’ (last mismatched card) is considered the winner.
- Pair – two cards of the same rank with three cards that do not match (example – 6 in clubs and hearts and all three other cards that are not the spades 6 of diamonds 6 and do not have the same rank). If the player and the dealer hold an identical pair, the hand with the highest Kicker card wins. If the kicker is also the same, the hand is decided by the second kicker, then the third if the second kicker is identical.
- High card – all five mismatched cards considered the highest card (example: 5 of spades, 9 clubs, 7 clubs, 2 hearts, and ace of diamonds).
If both the dealer and the player have hands of the same value (which is usually the case when the 5 community cards are the best hand for the player and the dealer), the hand is considered a push and the Player bets will be returned.
