You will find players playing almost every game. The article which I have written only consist three of the poker game. I wanted to show you some of the general guidelines of these games. These are the most commonly played games.

Texas Hold’em

This is one of the most popular games of poker. You can start playing it with six players. Every player gets two cards which should be faced down and after that betting round takes place. But remember that players start betting without looking to their cards and its called pre flop betting. The first player who sits left of the dealer is known as big blind and the player who sit second to the left of the dealer known as small blind. The UTG (under the gun) player is the player who sits after the big blind. It has three different stages like flop, turn and river. It is important that the board card should deal in the middle of the table. In the first stag that is flop only three cards are dealt, in the turn the cards become four and in the last one that is river the card become five. To make a five card hand a player use their two faced down cards with three board cards and the highest hands wins the pot.


Omaha is almost same as Texas Holdem. The stages are also same as in the Texas Hold’em. The blind bets also started with two players like in Texas Hold’em. The rules and you can apply the same strategies as well of Texas Hold’em in Omaha. The dissimilarity is that the players get four cards despite of two and in the end the player’s uses two of his face down cards along with three board cards.
