Boot Hill Casino & Resort Texas Hold’em

Rules of the Game

In Texas Hold’Em, Players receive 2 cards face down and 5 community cards are displayed, face up, on the board. Players make the best five-card poker hand out of their 2 cards and these 5 board cards. Any combination of these cards may be used. There are 4 separate betting rounds in Texas Hold’Em.

In limit games, the lower limit will apply during the first 2 betting rounds and the higher limit on the last 2.

In Texas Hold’Em there is a “Dealer Button” which is passed around the table, moving after each hand clockwise. The Player with the “ Dealer Button” has the last action on that betting round.

There are 2 “blind” bets in Texas Hold’Em. These bets are designed to stimulate action and are placed in the 2 positions immediately to the left of the “Dealer Button.” The second of these “blind” bets (The Big Blind) is an amount equal to the lowest of the table limits, is considered ‘Live,’ and a raise may be made when the Player’s betting turn is reached.
