Texas Holdem is probably the most common poker game played in Casinos. Texas Holdem is played with a pack of cards on the table with players sitting around it. Before dealing the cards, a bet is placed by the player on the ante. Then two cards and three cards are dealt for the flop. The player decides to call or fold on the basis of his hand.
The two cards of the player and the three cards of the flop can be mixed. If the player decides to call, he has to place an additional bet equal to the ante. After that, the dealer reveals his cards and the turn and river cards are dealt.
The amount you win depends on beating the dealer.
The Pai Gow is played in a similar manner with the difference that the seven card hand is split into two- a five card hand and a two-card hand.
Blackjack is also known as 21. It is probably the easiest card game to understand. The goal in Black Jack is to reach as close to the number 21 as possible or to get a blackjack i.e. an ace or picture card. After getting one card, a player can acquire another. Extra cards can be bought with money or the player may turn his cards to see how well he has played.
