Texas Hold'em is the most popular form of poker, and has been front and center of all card games in popular media.

How is it played?

At the start of the game each player is dealt two cards faced down, referred to as “hole cards” or “pocket cards”. After this, five “community” cards are dealt, face down, on the table. Each player now gets to check their cards, and have an opportunity to fold, call, or raise the bet. Betting continues if there are two or more active players who have not folded and have placed their bets in the pot.

At the start of the next round of betting, three cards are flipped face-up. The players can call, raise, fold, or check. If the game doesn't conclude at this round, the fourth community card is revealed, and starts another betting round.

For the final betting round, the final community card or the “river” gets dealt face-up. The betting round ensues. If more than one player remains after the betting round, the players reveal their cards clockwise, with the best hand winning the game. In cases where two or more players have identical hands, the pot will be divided equally between them.

What is limit poker?

A limit poker is a variant of poker that limits the minimum and maximum bets. In a 4-8 limit, players are only allowed to bet $4 pre-flop and on the flop, and $8 for both the turn and the river. These are referred to as “big bets” and “small bets”. In limit poker, players are allowed to raise bets (up to four times in Capitol Casino). No limit poker means the betting round is basically unlimited.

A “kill” basically means raising the stakes in the game. A “Full Kill” doubles of the big blind, as well as the betting limits (4-8 becomes 8-16), a “half-kill” raises it by half (4-8 becomes 6-12).

  • 4-8 limit Hold ‘Em (full kill)
  • 6-12 limit Hold ‘Em (full kill)
  • 8-16 limit Hold ‘Em (full kill)
  • 9-18 limit Hold ‘Em (full kill)
  • 12-24 limit Hold ‘Em (full kill)
  • 1-3 blind no limit
  • 2-5 blind no limit
  • 2-5-10 blind no limit

Pure 21.5 Blackjack follows the same basic principle of traditional blackjack. The goal of the game is to be the first one to reach a total of 21.5 (without going over) by having the following cards: King, Queen, Jack, or Ten Bonus Card and an ace card during the first two cards dealt. Let's delve deeper into the rules of this card game.

How to Play Pure 21.5 Blackjack

In a 180-degree seating arrangement, eight players on a raised table face the house dealer. The minimum and maximum wager is then set and displayed for everyone to see along with the collection fee.

To comply with the California Penal Code, the card game must only have five authorized collection rates. Then, a player-dealer is assigned to place a wager that will then be used to pay the winners.

Once the bets are in, the game can start.

If you have the ace, King, Queen, Jack, or Ten Bonus card, you can win this casino game. But if both the player and the player-dealer have Pure 21.5 Blackjack, as a wager it has no effect on your stance. The game starts with two cards facing up that are given to each player by the dealer. Subsequently, only one card will be left facing down. There are times when the dealer will show an ace facing up, which gives the player an insurance, i.e., an additional bet signifying that the dealer has the blackjack.

Once it becomes apparent that the dealer doesn't have the blackjack, each player can choose among the following moves:

  • Hit. The player asks another card from the dealer
  • Stay. The player wants to retain whatever cards he has
  • Double down. The player wants to double the bet and get one more card.
  • Split. Once you have received a pair and decided to split, you can have two separate hands.Subsequently, the dealer gives one additional card to each player. Once the players have their cards, they may choose again whether to hit, stay, double down, or split. Should you decide to split, a bet should be placed again that's equal to the one you wage initially.

After all the players have had their turn, the dealer will then have a turn and keep on doing a hit until the point has reached 17 or higher. If the dealer is done with his turn, anyone who is close to 21.5 and has a closer score than the dealer is the game's winner.

Ez Baccarat is not just one of the most popular baccarat variants but also one of the easiest casino games to play. In this game, the players place a wager on the Banker hand or Player hand before two cards are dealt for each hand, with an option of drawing an additional card. The goal is to reach the point value closest to nine.

Ez Baccarat is also referred to as Easy Bac.

Ez Baccarat Vs Original

The rules of Ez Baccarat follow the original or standard version, except for banker bets that pay even money, i.e., no commission. This baccarat variant has a “barred” hand, meaning there is a slight rule change to even out the house edge after the exclusion of the 5% commision.

The “barred” hand is a three-card banker 7.

In contrast, the classic baccarat pays out even money on winning banker bets and removes commission, which results in the Banker bet having a 1.235% player advantage; the house edge on Player hand having 1.24%; and the house advantage on banker bets having 1.06%.

Because the EZ Baccarat removes the commission process, barring the three-card banker 7 has a slightly lower house edge compared to the original version.

In addition, the EZ Baccarat is a smoother and faster variant.

How Is It Played?

To start the EZ Baccarat, the players place a wager on the Banker hand, the Player hand, the “Tie” (or Base Game Wager), or a combination of these.

Meanwhile, anyone who makes a wager on “Tie” may also place a “Dragon 7” bet, which is a three-card winning Bank hand totaling seven points.

All wagers, which must be between the minimum and maximum table limit, are resolved through these rules:

  • In Player win, all Player wagers are paid one to one, with the Bank, Tie, and Dragon 7 as the losing party.
  • In Bank win, all Bank wagers are paid one to one, with the Player, Tie, and Dragon 7 as the losing party.
  • In the event of a Tie, Tie wagers are paid eight to one, while Bank and Player wagers push and the Dragon 7 wagers lose.
  • In Dragon 7 win, Dragon 7 wagers are paid 40 to one, with the Player and Tie wagers lose and the Bank wagers push.

Additional Details

Just like in the standard casino games, this baccarat variant follows the rotating player-dealer position which pays all winners and collects money from losers.

Pai Gow Poker is a card variation of the traditional Chinese Pai Gow game, which uses dominoes. The game is played with the standard 52 card deck, plus one joker. The objective of the game is to try to beat the banker by playing a five card poker hand and a two card poker hand from seven cards.
