At casinos and online poker sites, Texas Hold’Em is by far the most popular game. When not at the tables, you can enjoy the thrill and drama of Hold’Em at online casinos and also in their live casino setup. In Ultimate Texas Hold’Em, you retain the Hold’Em experience and play against a dealer instead.
1. YOU PLAY TO THE DEALER AND NOT TO OTHER PLAYERS
You don’t have to try to evaluate the other players’ hands, and no one is trying to bluff you in Ultimate Texas Hold’Em. To win, your hand must beat the dealer. The other players’ hands do not matter in this game.
2. THERE ARE NO RAKE IN GENERAL TEXAS HOLD’EM
On normal poker sites where there are games such as Texas Hold’Em, seven-card stud, Omaha and the like, the house earns money by taking a percentage of each winning hand. This is not the case in Ultimate Texas Hold’Em. Here, the house earns its money because it has a small mathematical advantage that is part of the game’s design.
3. THE PLAYER EVEN MAKES A DIFFERENCE
If you know when to ‘hold’em’ and when to ‘fold’em’, the house advantage is 2.2 percent of your original ante or about 0.5 percent of your total bet. This means that pr. $100 in ante, you will lose an average of $2.20. It’s at the low end for that kind of game, so Ultimate Texas Hold’Em clearly gives you a realistic chance of winning. Those who do not learn basic poker strategy and therefore are too aggressive with their bets when playing, give a bigger advantage to the house.
4. YOU GET ABOUT 7 SHORTS AND IT’S THE 5 BEST THINGS HAVE YOUR HAND
Players and dealer each start separately with two cards facing down. Your two short-lived used your hand. All other cards are common and can be used in all hands. They are turned in two turns; one with three cards and then one subsequently with two cards.
5. ALL PLAYERS MUST PAY ANTE AND BLIND BETS
These bets must be straight – if your ante is $5, you also bet $5 on the blind. The Ante bet allows you to play against the dealer, while the blind bet allows you to get bigger pay by getting some big hands.
6. THERE ARE MORE THREE OPPORTUNITIES TO PAY WITH LESS AMOUNT
Once you have seen your first two cards, you can make a bet of up to 4 times your ante. Then you get another chance to bet after the three community cards have been shown. If you did not make your bet at 4 times the ante, you can now make a bet of 2 times your ante. There is a last chance to bet after the last two community cards have been shown. If you have not yet set a bet, you can now make a bet of the same amount as your ante. So you can bet the most and potentially win the most if you have strong cards early in the hand.
7. YOU DO NOT NEED TO MAKE A BET OR FOLLOW BEFORE YOU HAVE SET ALL YOUR CARDS
In normal poker games, you will have to fold if other players bet and you do not have the cards to call. But that’s not the case with Ultimate Texas Hold’Em. If you bet after your first two cards or after the first three community cards, you’re still in the game until the last chance to bet. But after all the community cards are shown, you must either bet and hope you have a better hand than the dealer or fold and drop your ante.
8. THE DEALER MUST HAVE AN OPENING HAND FOR YOUR ANTE CAN WIN
The cut-off point for the dealer to have an opening hand is a pair. Your bet is in play whether the dealer opens or not, but your ante is pushing if the dealer cannot open. Your winning ante and your bets are paid just over. So if you have an ante of $5 and bet 4 times to $20 and you bet a dealer opens, you win $5 on the ante and $20 on the bet. Let’s also look at an example where the dealer does not open. Let’s say you’ve put $5 in ante and a $5 bet. Your mum’s King’s head is better. The dealer’s hand is lady tall so it doesn’t open. Here you win your 5$ bet and your $5 ante goes push and is thus returned. So let’s say you still have King high but the dealer now has Es high. The dealer still doesn’t open but hits you. Here you lose your bet of $5, but your ante of $5 is returned to you.
9. YOU CAN WIN UP TO 500-1 ON YOUR BLIND BET
Blind bets are paid from a pay table regardless of whether the dealer opens. above is a table of winning hands and their winnings.
10. THE OPTIONAL TRIPS BETS GIVES PAYMENT AFTER ANY WINNING TABLE
Trips are a sidetrack and you don’t have to make it. It is a bet that your hand will consist of three equal or better. There are several winning tables for this. Everyone starts at 3-1 on all sorts of 3 equally and goes to max 50-1 at Royal flush. There are also gains on straight flush, four identical, full house and straight, but these may vary. With a minimum win of 3-1, the Trips bet is designed to reward the more rare hands. Here you get a winning hand at approximately 1 out of 6.5 hands, and the big win of 50-1 gets you 1 out of 30,940 hands.
