Hold'em poker (also known as Texas Hold'em) is the most popular
poker game in the world. There are three types of Hold'em games:
Limit Texas Holdem (there is a specific betting limit applied to each game and on
each round of betting)
Pot Limit Texas Holdem (A player can bet what is in the pot)
No Limit Texas Holdem (A player can bet all of his/her chips at any time)
Hold’em Poker uses what is called a dealer-button to indicate the theoretical
dealer of each hand. After each hand is completed, as with standard poker rules, the button moves clockwise to the
next active player. This player will be considered “the dealer” for that hand. Before the start of the game, the
BahaPoker.com system will internally generate a fresh deck of cards for the hand. On BahaPoker.com, we use a single
deck of cards to play a hand of poker, where a deck refers to 52 cards excluding the jokers. Online poker rooms use
what is called the Random Number Generator (RNG) to shuffle a deck of cards for the hand.
How does it work?
The system generates a random set of numbers, which are used to place a card in a
particular position in the deck. Once the completed deck is created, the deck is used for that particular hand
only. We shuffle the deck of cards every time we start a hand; the random numbers previously generated are
discarded and new ones are generated before the shuffle.
- First round Holdem Poker
The first person sitting at a table becomes the dealer, and receives the dealer ‘button’. A new game on an active table starts with the button moving clockwise to the next player
- The Second Round Holdem Poker
After the flop and in each subsequent betting round, the first active player to the left of the button is first to act. The second betting round also limits the value of bets and raises to the lower limit of the stake structure.
- Third Round Holdem Poker
The third betting round starts with the player left of the button, and bets and raises are limited to the upper limit of the stake structure ($10/$20 game, $20 would be the upper stake).
- Fourth Round Holdem Poker
The fourth (and final) betting round starts again with the player left of the button, and bets and raises are limited to the upper limit of the stake structure ($10/$20 game, $20 would be the upper stake).
