Texas Poker

Texas Poker is a card game where the goal is to collect five-card combination out of seven cards, the value of which is higher than the value of the dealer’s hand. Winning depends on the bet amount and predetermined winning ratio of the combination of cards collected.

Cash chips and coloured tokens with a value of EUR 0.01 are used in Texas Poker gambling.

It is played with one deck.

The cards are distributed in order of precedence from the highest to the lowest as follows: the King, Queen, Jack, ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three and deuce. Ace can be considered the highest or the lowest card. Card flush is not important for the card rank.

Gambling can involve from one to six players. The players play against the dealer.

The dealer announces: “Place your bets”. Gambling can begin when at least one player places an initial ANTE bet. One player can play in one layout at a time.

If additional winning (B) is played, the additional bet (b) on an additional bet layout (B) has to be positioned as well. Additional bets (B) can be made only when the player has made an initial ANTE bet.

As soon as all bets have been made, the dealer starts to deal out the card to the players one-by-one (if a dealing machine is used for gambling - 2 cards at once). Each player receives two cards face down, and the dealer receives two face down cards as well.

The dealer puts three up cards that are called “buying” cards in the middle of the table.

When the player sees his two received and three face-up cards in the middle of the table, he decides whether to fold or raise.

If the player has an additional bet (B) in the hand, which consists of two first cards dealt out and three face-up cards in the middle of the table, the dealer pays an extra winning (B) and returns an additional bet (B) to the player. In all other cases, an additional bet (B) is not returned. At least two player’s cards in the hand must be available to form an additional bet (B) combination (exception: in case of hand “Three of a Kind” at least one of the player’s card in the hand should participate).

Additional winning (B) shall be paid to the ratio:

Combination Odd
Three of Kind 1:10
Straight 1:15
Flush 1:25
Full House 1:75
Four of a Kind 1:250
Straight Flush 1:500
Royal Flush 1:1000

The size of additional bet (B) can vary from EUR 0.5 to EUR 10.

If the player decides to fold, he loses the initial bet (ANTE).

If the player decides to raise, he has to place a bet on BET layout (answer) equal to twice the initial bet (ANTE).

When all bets have been made, the dealer opens two more cards from the deck, puts them in middle of the table and shows down his two cards face down.

The objective for players is to form the highest possible five-card Poker hand from the existing two and five face-up cards from which the amount of winning will depend.

The following combinations of cards (from highest to lowest) are possible:

Combination Description
Royal flush - The same kind of Ace, King, Queen, Jack, ten;
Straight flush - Five cards of the same kind successively. Ace is counted as the lowest card in the hand;
Four of a kind - Four cards of the same kind (e.g. four sevens and any one card);
Full house - Three cards of the same kind and a pair (e.g. three sixes and two Jacks);
Flush - Five cards of the same kind. Their succession is not considered;
Straight - Five consecutive cards of different kinds (e.g. five, six, seven, eight, nine). Ace can be counted as the lowest or highest card in the hand;
Three of kind - Three cards of the same kind (e.g. three Queens and any two cards);
Two pairs - A hand consisting of two different pairs of two cards of the same kind (e.g. two Queens and two tens and any one card);
One pair - Two cards of the same kind (e.g. two Jacks and any three cards);

Texas Poker gambling is continued only if the dealer’s hand is at least two hands of the four cards.

If the dealer’s hand has no two or more of the fours, he declares: “No Gambling” and, after checking the player’s hand, pays the winning: the bet on the BET layout is not paid (returned to the player), and the initial ANTE bet is paid as follows:

Combination Odd
One pair 1:1
Two pairs 1:1
Three of a kind 1:1
Straight 1:1
Flush 2:1
Full house 3:1
Four of a kind 10:1
Straight flush 20:1
Royal flush 50:1

After the payout of winnings to the players, their bets are returned as well.

If the gambling is continued and the players have a higher value hand than the dealer’s hand, they win, and they are paid out the winnings. Bet on the BET layout is paid to the ratio 1:1, and the initial ANTE bet is paid as follows:

Combination Odd
One pair 1:1
Two pairs 1:1
Three of a kind 1:1
Straight 1:1
Flush 2:1
Full house 3:1
Four of a kind 10:1
Straight flush 20:1
Royal flush 50:1

After the payout of winnings to the players, their bets are returned as well.

If the players have a lower hand than the dealer’s hand, their bets on ANTE and BET layouts lose and are removed. If a player does not want to face up his cards, he pushes them or shows a gesture by hand; then the cards are not checked and all bets lose.

If the players’ hands are the same as the dealer’s hand, wins the card hand consisting of higher rank cards or there is a higher card not falling into a hand.
