Casino Hold’em Intro

Date Published: February 19, 2016

Many players who enjoy online gambling will benefit from the variety of poker games that have been created by top rated software companies. One of the most played games found online is Casino Hold’em, the online version of Texas Hold’em. Instead of playing against other players as one would do with Texas Hold’em, Casino Hold’em has players playing against the dealer. The game may seem complicated, but with some basic knowledge, even beginners can start enjoying the action of this great poker game online.

To start the game, players will place an ante bet on the table and will receive two hole cards in addition to three different community cards. These three cards are known as the flop. The dealer will receive two cards as well, but these are not seen by the player. At this time, players can choose to play the hand or fold. To play, another bet will be placed and this is two times the amount of the ante. After placing this bet, two more community cards will be dealt and the dealer will then reveal their hand. The winner is determined by who has the best five card hand using the community cards and the two original cards that have been dealt. One thing that makes the game interesting is that the dealer is required to qualify to compare the hands. This is done by having a pair of fours or a better ranking hand. Should the dealer not have a qualifying hand, the bets are a push.

When playing with an optimal strategy, the house edge of Casino Hold’em is pretty low at 0.82%. The strategy that is used will be based on the first five cards, the two dealt and the three community cards on the table. Many sites will have a strategy calculator that can help new players determine how to play the hands. After playing for a bit, this calculator will not be needed and players can go on to develop better skills.

The strategy states that players should never fold a hand when they have any pair, any Ace or King high card or any flush draw. Most players will also avoid folding if they have a Queen as a high card. It may take some time to master the strategy needed to be successful, but with many sites offering free Hold’em games, new players can practice and prepare for a real money gambling session.
