    Like 7 other people, just friends of Ed's (the boyfriend). We have poker at our/his house every saturday. That means I won a whopping $35 (big $5 ins :p ) I'm rolling in dough.

    Please excuse my ignorance... which type is texas poker?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    You start with 2 cards which only you see...
    You do a round of betting on them cards...

    then the flop comes down (3 cards) which everyone can see and use to make hands with there pocket pair...
    Another round of betteing... then the turn (1 more card) another round of betting... then the river (1 final card) then the final round of betting...

    Ah, thanks! I've never played it like that before. Should try it sometime..
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Texas holdem, have 2 cards in your hadn. betting goes round, burn one, turn 3, betting, burn 1, turn 1, betting, burn 1 turn 1, betting, show cards, whinner takes all.

    texas hold em is only good when playing NL, if im in a casino i like 3 card just for the quick games.

    Its always funny when someone forgets to burn the card! People go mad, especially if they see something that they wanted to come up!

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    yeah no limits. it really annoys me otherwise.

    tut tut burning of cards isnt acceptable.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru

    cards are what you make of them, 7 2 off or not, you can still have a good hand

    Nice!

    For some reason I always get lucky with J 2 off suite.... normally I wouldnt bother playing a hand like that, but there is something about it that just makes me lucky!

    Very true!

    But statistically, 7 2 off suite is the worst hand you can get in texas poker!
